Re: “A welcome escalation in the war on metal thievery” (editorial, 11-19-2012).

I think everyone is in agreement that much of metal theft is due to tweekers and druggies. It is definitely not a sophisticated ring of international thieves, just people looking for their next fix.

And just think, we’ve added another layer of regulations for business to worry about while at the same time legalizing an entry-level drug. Good luck with that.

Final note: Better make those new miniature license plates out of plastic or they’ll just steal those, too.
