Toilet pipe bandits flush with success in Albuquerque
KOB-TV reports that Albuquerque police commander Will Roseman says authorities have seen a rash of thefts involving Flush-O-Matics.
Police believe the thieves' m.o. is to pose as plumbers. According to authorities, the pipes sell for around $30 on the black market but cost businesses about $400 to replace.
A police report says at least one Albuquerque-area recycling plant has been buying the stolen pipes.
