Scrap Metal Theft in Munderf & Richardsville

During the course of the past couple of weeks there have been at least two cases of stolen scrap metal in the Munderf and Richardsville area. We would appreciate any info anyone has on these incidents, or any other incidents of similar theft. The first theft occurred at the old Munderf school. Among the items stolen were support posts that were going to be used in the basement. These were heavy gauge round steel pipes about 8 feet long. The theft in Richardsville was of a foot board of a very heavy antique Mission style brass bed frame. Why did the thieves only take the smaller foot board and leave the headboard? Who knows. Very thick solid brass frame, square tubing, value of bed far exceeded scrap value. We'll gladly pay a reward for anyone with info that leads to the prosecution of the thieves in either case.
