rampant petty crimes..

oh my goodness...
it has been 3 days straight here in our place where the water meters has been stolen... it is such a nuisance coz the meters cost Php2,000 to replace, and these petty criminals will sell the stolen goods for maybe 200 bucks.. that's only 10% of the total price that people have to shell out to pay for the meters... Oh my goodness.. really it is such a pain... Luckily our meter wasn't stolen, but we're thinking, it's only a matter of days since it has been 3 straight days now that meters are stolen... My oh my... a total of about 10 meters stolen in 3 days...

Our meters are lined up near our houses above the drainage system in our street and even though grills have been placed to 'protect' it, it has actually offered no protection for the meters..

My goodness, even the small steel bar we use to keep our gates closed was stolen. probably to be sold at the nearby junkshop. First it was telephone cables, now water meters, what next...
