Restaurant thief must be a plumber
WOODLAND, Cowlitz County (AP) — Someone is stealing pipes from restrooms at restaurants in Woodland and Longview, and the evidence suggests the thief is a good plumber.
Pipes and valves have been taken from two McDonald's, a Dairy Queen and a Mexican restaurant.
The manager of the Dairy Queen in Woodland, Alicia Leyva, told KATU the thief must have had tools and experience because no water spilled on the floor Sunday when a urinal was disassembled.
Police think the parts may have been stolen for scrap metal.
