Fair enough, but there is nothing "quick" about stealing 140 pound metal drain covers.
And while crackheads may be capable of stealing these objects, it does take a certain amount of planning and resources.
Seems a bit too organized IMHO.
Most of the druggies are working, often mechanics or in construction, at least the ones I knew through my ex, and scrap metal was big, even scraping
down big staches of copper wire. And usually a few of them, trucks and equipment involved. One roofing company often paid off the guys in drugs and
they were basically like slaves IMO and I had something to say to that guy in public, made a few jaws drop and this drug dealer actually phoned me up,
but that didn't last for long, cause I had the hero or zero lecture of his life to give him and reminding him of all the men who are not men, who had
children, and all those camping trips and beds and food, and just normal things taken from them by people like that, who by the way, employed some of
those scrap metal guys, and was just such a respectable guy in town, drove his 180 000 dollar rig, just all that.
Not to mention all the
crooked cops who know all about all of these guys.
