They didn't steal the system, they gutted it.  Metal thieves.

The Pope of Manwich Village: I wonder if they were big Reznor fans...

That really is a product of Trent Reznor's family business, though they sold it years ago.

Question: Why steal an HVAC system?

For real, I assume there's an answer.

Your name is Halifax, and the TPB have taught you nothing?

Metal thieves piss me off. They do thousands of dollars worth of damage for $100 worth of scrap. My mom used to live in the city of st. Louis in an older house that had copper guttering. They stripped it and caused $10,000 worth of damage plus replacement cost and probably got $300 for the metal. That's just asinine

To sell the metals inside for scrap.  Copper in particular is a prime target, but scrappers will go after just about any kind of metal.

I bet they're cross, too.

Never knew this was a thing until we started looking at houses. It was late 09' so most we looked at were foreclosures but it was crazy how many were stripped of all the HVAC. I mean why???

Hey Nurse!: Loren: They didn't steal the system, they gutted it.  Metal thieves.

To me, the really irritating thing is that metal thieves obviously have a bit of get up and go. They're not just stealing metal because it's an easy payday, because it's usually quite a bit of work. They just need a job.

Not really, aluminum just isn't worth the space it takes up, steel the weight kills you, etc. Copper hits the sweet spot

They aren't just hard workers down on their luck.

They are addicts and fark ups, and people who are ok with about the worst example of theft (as explained already) there is.

I don't have a problem feeling bad for them or saying they need help and should get it. But come on.

"They had to have had ladders. They had to have a couple of other people. They had the vehicle," explains Yolanda, a manager at Taylor's Bakery who asked to have her last name remain hidden.

Well, at least they've narrowed it down to... literally anyone.

If it happened to Longs, there'd have been bands of vigilantes roaming the south side looking for the thieves. Or at least hanging out at OmniSource near Raymond St.

You're Not Special: If it happened to Longs, there'd have been bands of vigilantes roaming the south side looking for the thieves. Or at least hanging out at OmniSource near Raymond St.


You're damn right.  I'd be right there with them.  I'd take a day old Longs doughnut over a fresh one from anywhere else.

1) I'm not an HVAC installer, but I'm pretty sure it takes more than a ladder to get away with an entire roof mount commercial HVAC unit.

2) What in the hell is "snegging"? Is that Indianapolis slang or is it dialect for "snagging"? Whatever it is, has broadcast English been reduced to slang?

They didn't actually steal the units.  They gutted them for metal to sell for scrap.  TFAs headline was a little misleading but it was clarified in the actual article.

No snegging is not local slang.  I've never heard that word before, and since that word doesn't appear anywhere in TFA I'm wondering where you heard it.

I can't recall hearing of this so called institution despite being born and raised in Indianapolis.

Feel for the poor bakers left to swelter in the kitchen. It gets bad enough in commercial bakeries when the ac is working. The customers get in and leave, but the bakers are there for 8-10 hours at least.
