Odd Items That Are Stolen Frequently

AAA

When the economy is challenging, desperate people resort to desperate measures to make ends meet. During the last recession, theft of low-dollar items, referred to as petty theft, rose by 25% across Britain. With the economy still under pressure, these smaller-scale thefts continue. According to ABC News, when gas prices are high, the reports of gasoline theft rise. In 2009, more than $89 million in gas was stolen nationwide in schemes ranging from pumping gas and driving away to drilling holes into the bottom of a gas tank.


Gas isn't the only thing stolen when times are rough. Some items are more odd and outlandish.
