Light poles vanishing -- believed sold for scrap by thieves - Thieves are sawing down aluminum light poles. Some 130 have vanished from Baltimore's streets in the last several weeks, authorities say, presumably sold for scrap metal. But so far the case of the pilfered poles has stumped the police and left many local residents wondering just how someone manages to make off with what would seem to be a conspicuous street fixture.

Nah, they are in my basement. I use them when I invite the strippers over.

They are not stealing the lightpoles as their primary target...

It is the lights...

Uh ehmm... Grow lights (marijuana).

If they were stealing the poles to recycle, the local recycling companies would alert the authorities.

The poles are being dumped, the lights being used for indoor grows.

I guess I could see that, but why not just grab the light part and leave the pole? Sodium Halide lights are not THAT expensive. And if you're doing enough growing to need those lights, you'd have the cash to buy the lights. Not that I know anything about this ;-)
