Copper Theft Ruins Food For The Needy
There's yet another example of the widespread, growing crime problem in Indianapolis. Thieves stole copper tubing on refrigeration units for Gleaner's Food Bank over the weekend, causing the loss of $474,000 worth of food. This has been happening to air-conditioning units all over town. A number of churches have also reported copper gutters stolen. A friend of mine is having copper gutters installed on his home on the near-northside. He'll be lucky if they last for more than a month. Click here to help out Gleaner's in its hour of need.
