Lead Thieves - watch out!

Recommended Posts

So you're proposing that the thieves get off with a caution whereas the scrap dealers who may buy in good faith get a big fine or prison.

 

I think you'd be pretty naive to buy a bit of lead off some scally thats been ripped off someones bay window without knowing its been stolen.

 

And copper cable thats been stripped off a railway line being sold by a van full of Romanians.

 

The scrap dealers know exactly what their buying......hit them hard and people will stop buying stolen metal.

some years ago thieves nicked a henry moore statue from Yorkshire sculpture park it was made of metal and worth around 5 million, police reckon the thieves would have 100 quid, prices don't matter to these people just the price of heroin a fix is a fix

Found some terd on my bay ripping the lead from one side of the roof a few weeks ago with a hoodie on,slowly opened the window and pushed him off the bay.

He must have 9 lives as he landed on his fekkin feet on the grass,never looked up at me just walked off as if hed done nothing,walked around the corner but by the time i got dressed he'd obviously slung his hook.

Now ive 24 hour surviellance and built a sloping roof,obviously at a cost,because the wife felt threatened.

Hope it's true that the scrum bags have been caught. Thieves tried to remove lead off our bay window 3am a few years ago.
