    depending on the copper windings 9as to a large or small motor) and then the scrap metal, that's a very profitable haul.

    then too, i say build a fencing around it, all welding and install more security cameras at all angles to catch the license plate. i can't see doing anything else, other than to install a guard shack, and have that occupied 24/7.

    They can't do that. That would create jobs.
