i guess they figured since the wires were not connect between the building and the buss bars the underground wires from the high tension tower to the transformer were not connected either.
Man scary! I think we ought to transform this into how to scare the tar outta the would be perp....

Yep, gotta be careful what you put on the internetssss.

Its a good thing I'm broke, have nothing worth stealing, and don't plan on hurting anyone or else I bet the lawyer would just show up with an FTE file in hand. LOL

Funny story tho Tom. The first one.
The second one is scary, but I've seen it happen. We had some people die while trying to steal copper wires from a burnt down barn.

Scrap yards around here require paperwork of where you got some of the more precious metals.

same here Alex. after the rash of thefts here over the past few years, you now have to give the scrap yard a valid drivers license.
this has cut way down on thefts, because the dirtbags can not get rid of their loot.

All I have to do. To sell my scrap copper is show my electrical licenses . But any body that wants to sell copper, all you got to do here is go to your local police station and feel out a form and you get a copper license. Good friend of mine runs a scrap yard and he tells me he makes copy's of the copper card and I'd and calls the law when he thinks they steeling and the law said if they got a copper card they ok. .
He calls me up often and sells me full rolls of wire for half the cost and he is still making money.
Like he said, if he don't buy it they just go somewhere else.

I was calmed down about the whole idea? And, just for the record, I never was meaning to kill. Just teach acrobatics, and make them sound the audible alarm. LOL Now if I caught them red handed, it would be hard not to just beat the **** out of them!

Funny thing is that you can do far worse things to them if you are there in person than you can with a device or trap left unattended. Either way, you don't even have to intend to kill - just the intent to do something that a reasonable person would know could cause significant injury (not just death, but injury!) means your device would be illegal.

I'd suggest a locking bed cap with solid panels instead of glass, plus deeply tinted windows so people can't see inside.

Well, actually, I am in the process of putting together a solid 7.3 over the road work truck. I has flat welding bed locking boxes ect. I allready pull a 16' enclosed trailer. Just sucks you have to go to such lengths these days to keep you stuff safe.

Unfortunately that's the world we live in today. Several years ago I had a person that worked for me for one day.......

By the next morning my truck had been stripped of everything in it. I couldn't prove it and the cop's did nothing.

I had to replace my entire lively hood of tools.

That stings.
