Metal thieves really will steal anything

There are moments when I see something while out in the neighborhood; I'll snap a photo of it with my phone. I will upload it to one of my social media accounts, with every intention of also uploading it here. Unfortunately, I don't always remember to do so.

Especially when I'm as busy as I have been these past few weeks.

Anyway, the latest example of this a series of photos from Ryan Playground (5741 Faust Ave.) at the southern end of the Warrendale neighborhood. These photos clearly show that metal thieves really and truly will still anything if they think they can sell it for scrap.

Someone decided to steal a large chunk of the chain-link fencing that used to be at the northern end of the playground. I'm not sure how much they'll get for stolen fencing when they try to sell it for scrap metal. Still, they stole it.

Not to be outdone, someone also tried to steal this climbing set that has been in the playground for decades. I remember climbing on this thing as a kid way back in the 1970s.

I have to admit that I am more than a little frustrated with people who steal all of this stuff. If anyone knows anything about who stole these things, please call the Detroit Police Department and then reach out to me.
