    Barns are used for storage (in some areas people called storage buildings barns). There is a lot of valuable stuff stored in these barns. Thieves will steal anything they can resale quickly for quick money. Copper from anything, anything metal, tools, etc. Now, think about all the valuables in your storage facilities.

    Robbery at a barn... I was gonna comment on this story, but for the life of me I'm at a loss of words. Let's just say this one should appear on some kind of T.V. show where the criminals ain't so smart.
