Thieves take fencing and metal shed from South Bend neighborhood homes
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- One street in a South Bend neighborhood is being targeted by metal scrapers.
Vanvynckt lives just a couple houses down from where one of the thefts happened and he says the vacant house right next door to him has also been a tragedy of these crimes.
Vanvynckt says he saw someone go in and strip the house of all its copper and aluminum siding, but the thieves were gone before police arrived. "A truck, trailer, flashlights, a lot of banging. you know something is going on and something is coming up missing".
