Bronze bandit

Stolen plaque

Here’s the shocking video of the bronze bandit. Except that I don’t see him stealing anything… looks like he tries to open a door, then makes a cell phone call. Still great, though — some guy wandering around the city stealing (fairly worthless) bronze plaques and lettering. Maybe it’s all for an art project?

    This is the kind of stuff the Coral Gables blog lives for… posted about it earlier this morning…

    It so happens thanks to the construction boom in China (!) that scrap metals such as bronze and brass are in great demand… a homeless man got electrocuted trying to strip the wires off of what he mistakenly thought was a ‘dead’ streetlight. And fire hydrants (wouldn’t it be easier to get a REAL job?!?) are being stolen all the time, too.
