In Alabama, theft of urinal items stumps officialsMay 29, 2014 @ 8:37 am
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Officials in Alabama say they're investigating a series of thefts involving metal urinal components from restaurant bathrooms.
Jefferson County sheriff's spokesman Randy Christian told Al.com (http://bit.ly/1oKNobD) Wednesday that authorities have been told of a man walking into men's rooms and stealing flush valves and supply lines from urinals. Authorities say the man left each business without being noticed.
Christian says the pipes weren't made of copper and would have little value if a thief tried selling them as scrap metal. Christian says officials are unsure why the items are being stolen.
