    Well, if you notice he was charged with five counts of larceny. Not sure who could steal two tons at one time.

    At current market prices for scrap, that would be about $1423.00... minus the cost in gas to haul that much.

    Lol I was thinking the same thing. Someone has to go back to school and learn how much a ton is.

    Who cares? That's alot of aluminum. Imagine if he was that efficient at holding down a job.

    Someone needs to get thier numbers straight. Big difference in 2,846 pounds and over two tons or more than 4000 pounds.

    2,000 lbs = 1 ton; 2846 lbs is less than 4 tons
