Looking at the pics, trying to work out which one is the criminal mastermind who came up with this stunning scheme. Decided none of the above.
Maybe....
Step 1: got photographed running a red light and decided a few minutes with an angle grinder might remove the evidence.
Step 2 : see TFA
Step 3 : profit ?

I got nothin'.

Alcohol was the primary inspiration, motivation, and goal.

True for facial hair, but the opposite for scalp.

The overall balance of hair must be preserved - if you exceed it you are kidnapped by itinerant bears and condemned to life of club dancing and pool parties

Didn't want to wait until Hurricane Ian knocked them down.

runwiz: Didn't want to wait until Hurricane Ian knocked them down.


That's what I was thinking. Wait a day and you can walk around, pick them up and claim to be trying to help by clearing up (resellable) debris.

$5000 for each traffic light? Cop math checks out, unless they were those fancy, gold plated ones with swarovski crystal lights.

I'd say the figure is low, especially if it includes the installation.

You can't just run down to Municipal Light Pole Depot and pick up a new one.

Got greedy. If they'd have taken one or two they'd have been gone before the cops showed up.
I mean, you shouldn't do that but they didn't even have a plan.

I hate thieves. But I especially despise thieves who cause many more times the value of what they took in damages. Like the asshole who smashed my window for like $1.75 in change. That's all they took.
If you come to my door and say "I want those 7 quarters you have sitting in the cup holder, and I was thinking about breaking your window to get it." I'll just give you the change so I don't have to pay $200+ for a new window.
How much money are you going to get for a street lamp, vs what it costs the city to put up a whole new pole?

I wonder how many newer Farkers will not understand the joke behind that header?

Who would they sell them to? Who would buy them, and why? I can think of maybe some "memorabilia" style restaurant with crap on the walls but that's about it. I know some places, like San Diego, have a City Store where they sell surplus and old stuff like signs and such fairly cheaply. (A good place to take visitors, btw, as something a bit different to pass the time and not the usual souvenir shop.) I never found anything I wanted. What would I do with an old Yield sign?

Lurk Who's Talking: Who would they sell them to? Who would buy them, and why?


People get caught fairly regularly trying to steal and scrap stuff like lights - the wiring can have enough metal value to tempt the doofier methheads that are all about *twice the work, 4 X the danger, and 1/10 of the money 'brilliant plans'

/vs. just working for it
//or even just begging
///return's still better all factors considered
