    And nobody heard anything?! What is the deal? There is a lot of noise involved with causing this amount of damage. And they had to haul it off, too. Where is the neighborhood while this is going on?

    It’s not unknown for the former owners to do that type of damage.

    r/e Picky’s comment- Pretty much the same thing happened to the vacant house next door. I didn’t hear a thing plus I have a dog. We’re both aging and half deaf, however!

    These photos are so sad! Since copper theft is such a problem, are there any laws that require buyers of copper to take some responsibility to make sure they’re not purchasing stolen property? If I understand correctly, pawn shops are required to
    collect ID of sellers for this very reason. I realize criminals will continue with their illegal behavior, but it may help a little with the problem. Surely some of these buyers know they are purchasing stolen goods.

    I agree with you, Rebecca.
