Rising Metal Theft

There was a news article yesterday about wire theft causing a signal outage in Washington state.

This comes on top of continuing news that copper piping is being stolen from construction sites (both before and after installation).

Like petty theft, muggings, and liquor store robberies, I wonder if the benefit-cost ratio of these activities is greater than 1.0 (for the thieves)?
