Who took our doors?

The mail boxes of our Community here in Spain were protected from the elements, and passing inquisitive eyes, by two sliding aluminium doors.

Since they were installed there have been a couple of incidents of vandalism which damaged them. The first was when one was removed and thrown into the garden of a property close by. On the second occasion one of the opaque centre panels was pushed out. Both incidents occurred during the night-time.

This morning I found the third incident. Both of the doors have been stolen.

They have not been thrown into the adjacent Community swimming pool, as have other objects in the past. They have not been thrown into the garden of a nearby property, as far as I can see. They have not been thrown onto adjacent vacant rough ground. My conclusion is that they have been stolen.

What for? They were made to measure doors to fit our specific sized mailbox alcove. They were made of a small amount of aluminium mouldings and plastic panels, neither of which can have any significant scrap value.

The morons act again!

    one even has to be carefull what you throw into ones "bazura-container", as there are plenty people arround driving with little vans , sourcing for scrap in those bazura things, and they mostly know which houses they come from (the scrap)
