Metal bonanza

Thieves had a metal-stealing bonanza from a farm property in Alpedrinha, Fundão. As much as €13,000 worth of ‘non-precious’ metal was stolen from the farm and, according to initial reports, the thieves got away without trace. Metal heists up and down the country can play havoc with electricity supplies and a ‘new’ alternative these days is to steal aluminium doors and windows. Unoccupied houses are worst affected.
