Those darn recyclers at it again and again. The authorities need to make the recycling companies that buy copper and other scrap metals accountable...if you buy stolen property you pay the price. And believe me the scrap dealers know if the material they are buying is stolen...just look at the seller. You know right off if the low life has 100 or 200 pounds of new copper wire to sell.
The trouble is the scrap dealer turns a blind eye to the situation and just wants to profit from the deal.
