Police Investigating Trash Bin Thefts
Trash bins are left out on homeowners driveways and garages and left unattended throughout the day. One would think that a crook wouldn't steal such a large item, but it is happening in Brownsville, Michelle Macias has the story.
The police are searching for the suspect or suspects who are responsible for stealing 10 trash containers in the last week and police have investigated such a crime three years ago. The homeowners, who were victims of the crime, told police their trash container was placed on their driveway and stolen during the day. Allied Waste Services, who provides the containers, reported to police that the criminals are selling the bins for $5 dollars when in fact the containers are worth more than $100 dollars.
