Here’s an interesting perspective on copper theft from bank-owned properties in St. Paul:
Of the 10 bank owned St. Paul properties I previewed for an investor today, 3 were completely stripped of their copper. One was so thoroughly stripped that the Romex wiring was gone as well. One of the houses had “recently had a break-in” according to the listing agent. No mention was made of missing copper!
There has to be an easier way to make a living than stripping copper out of empty houses. Right?
