ANNALS OF CREATIVE THIEVERY

Lead is currently selling at $2,400 a metric ton -- up from about $900 at the beginning of 2009.

Thieves in Britain who also follow the commodities markets are now using Google Earth to locate lead-roofed Church of England buildings for their shingles.



One church replaced its roof after the first theft, only to be hit again--13 more times.

I'm sticking to good old, tried-and-true copper theft, myself.
