All that money sitting on the lot, and that is the only camera they have? Geeez. Poor management.

A couple of months ago, I saw a person unloading a pickup truck load of, what looked like, brand new SETS of high priced, oversized rims, at the Salisbury Scrap Metal business in Salisbury. They were being "sold" as salvage. There must have been 30 rims in the truck. They appeared to be in new condition, not dented, or damaged. Talk about OBVIOUS! Not a lot of controls at the scrap yard.

Yeah, I've been there several times and always see those high priced wheels in the salvage bins. The must bring in good money to the ones that take them there.
