    This is so sad on a number of levels.

    Times are rough but taking something that doesn't belong to you is unacceptable.

    Karma doesn't forget addresses.

        I am with you SMH bring on the COI and sort out who they are amongst us. Welcome the Navy and catch the smugglers. Let's find out who the Lawless and Criminal people are, lock them up and clean up the place. Unexplained wealth orders would go a long way too. Would make a BIG DIFFERENCE as you say.

    I hate a thief!!!! I'm thinking they need to check the workers on this project. Only the workers have no fear because they know exactly where everything is and know the public would just see them as workers. No suspicious looking activity to the general public. They obviously have a buyer already, unless they are using it for themselves. The criminals are usually right under your nose. Whoever it is, I hope they get caught big time.

      Yessss, the workers took the material and sold it to someone for a profit. It happen to me when I was building my house. Everyday supplies was missing so I had to fire the whole crew.

    I'm sorry they didn't take everything because i don't see why that project is taking so long

    A ton of steel is not an excuse for the project delay. The fact that they are never working there is the cause! Well deserved! Learn how to work properly!
