    Amen. Wonder if he'll learn his lesson? Unfortunately he may go right back out there and pick up. Then again there's always hope.

    That guy had to be maybe 60 feet up. I'll try and find video.

    Unbelievable where and what people steal to get drug money. Sometimes you wake up and the next day your neighbor is short a storm door.
