Thieves in Palm Beach Florida are stealing hurricane shutters. The shutters are not being taken to be used on other homes for storm protection, but for scrap metal. It is extremely disappointing when someone takes and item that belongs to another and has a defined purposes simply for scrap. Apparently aluminum has value in the scrap market. This particular report cites police stating that aluminum is worth more than a dollar per pound. We hope this is an isolated incident and the police catch the thieves.
Anyone want to take my used soda cans? I will give them to you.
