Rosie,
The SJ Mercury News today just ran a story on copper theft citing the price/lb has gone up to $4 from $1.68 last year. They note that drug addicts are finding this market tempting and most of the copper is wire stolen from construction sites. How sad that they would target statues, too.

Perhaps we need more "coppers" on the beat in the Park. Seems there were always a bunch when I was a kid, either in cars or on horseback...might have been my imagination since I had more reasons to keep an eye out for them back then.
