Book em Dano. How about the maximum fine/hit of the law and about 500 hours of community service, taking away their free time to commit stupid crimes.

Copper thieves are the worst of the bunch, especially when they prey on public utilities installations that the public/taxpayer use for recreational purposes, i.e., swimming pools and baseball diamonds.

Weren't all the companies who buy things like copper wire put on notice and required to get IDs and other info when they buy the metals? I think there was one company that was fined for buying copper. Evidently, the law is not stopping people from buying the stolen stuff.
