Scrap Metal Thieves Caught Red Handed 

These guys showed up and took about $15k worth of scrap metal last year, so in the summer we installed some additional surveillance cameras out back. I guess it's that time of year again, as they started showing up again, so I started monitoring the cameras from home. Friday night (Dec 20, 2013), they show up so I call the local police.

Cops show up about 5:10

Edit: A lot of users think they're just raiding the trash. This is a bin we store scrap metal in, and a recycling company picks it up and pays us per pound for the metal. These guys instead come and steal it, then sell it to generally less-reputable recycling companies.
The area they're stealing from is through our parking lot and behind the building, near our truck wells. It's very much on our private property.
