Again, my pal and I are talking about handfuls of copper that is then sold on the black market for pennies on the dollar! Yet, this type of burglary leaves in its wake thousands of dollars in heating and cooling device completely destroyed.
I swear, the depths of desperation seem to get only deeper when it comes to what people are willing to do for a dollar. I particularly swim at a community pool where my pal and I all pay dues for unlimited access to the pool. This little spot also has a workout room that is air conditioned. I help out around the pool in an effort to give back a bit. And that includes straightening up the locale after an evening swim. I noticed that numerous dumbbells and weight device were disappearing from the a/c of the little work out room. Sure enough, a member was stealing them. I mean, these are not high dollar items however rather aged in fact. Still, I found them online being sold for literally dollars. And these people have fantastic tasks! I was beyond disappointed and a bit stunned. But then again, I have had to put a reinforced steel cage over the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C cabinet that sits outside my home. There is a trend that has finished making up recently where thieves are ripping apart this piece of residential Heating, Ventilation, and A/C device to get to the copper fittings. Again, my pal and I are talking about handfuls of copper that is then sold on the black market for pennies on the dollar! Yet, this type of burglary leaves in its wake thousands of dollars in heating and cooling device completely destroyed. I hate to sound like some whining aged guy. But I’m just getting more and more upset at what I’m seeing from people. I hate that there are people in situations or with mindsets that stealing is somehow justified.
