    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Someone is stealing trash cans from Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

    KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin reports 50 trash cash cans have been snatched off the streets. They are worth about $1,000 each.

    “It seems very odd to me that somebody would be running around stealing the cans from the streets of Pittsburgh,” Peggy Ferber, of Pittsburgh, said. “I mean, we need those cans. We paid for those cans.”

    If they stole that many and the Pirates turn up missing, we'll know.

    Why would the city specify iron garbage cans. That is pretty stupid but a thous. bucks per can is ridiculous Union job overcharges at work.

    The real question here isn't who stole them but who ordered them in the first place!
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Maybe the Pentagon wasn't using them anymore.

    Pricey Trash Cans Stolen From City Streets
    snip
    The city paid $250,000 for 250 back in 2009. The cans are made of iron.

    City leaders are trying to determine why it took Public Works employees almost four months to find out why they had so many missing garbage cans.

    Pittsburgh Police are trying to figure out who stole the cans and where they sold them for scrap. The cans are worth about $1,500 to $2,000 at scrap yards.
