Copper thieves hit foreclosed home.

MILTON – A foreclosed home on Hopewell Road was broken into sometime during the final week of 2010, and several copper pipes were stolen.

The garage door was broken into and an unknown number of copper piping was taken from the home's heating system, including the furnace. Thefts of copper fixtures have been a common source of ready cash to thieves who sell the metal for scrap.

I truly wish that they would bring the hammer down on the recyclers. If these meth-heads couldn't get cash for the metal, then this would stop.

(funny note: my picture verification for this post is "crack." Perhaps they were crack-heads, not meth-heads)
