Los Angeles commuters were left in the dark after having to fend for themselves after this heist

Theft, in all of its forms, has skyrocketed all over the country over the last several years.

Businesses, taxpayers, law-abiding citizens, and consumers pay the price for such rampant theft. 

And Los Angeles commuters were forced to fend for themselves following this brazen heist. 

Thieves plunged drivers into the darkness with his jaw-dropping theft 

Los Angeles has reeled from crime for many years, especially in certain parts of town such as Watts and Compton. 

Over time, such crime has spread to even the “nicest” neighborhoods of Los Angeles, and the thefts have become increasingly brash.

However, recent thefts on the new Sixth Street Bridge in Los Angeles take things to an entirely new level. 

Los Angeles’ NBC4 News published a report earlier this week, detailing how thieves have stolen over seven miles of copper wire off the Sixth Street Bridge, plunging the bridge into darkness. 

These thefts come as precious metal prices surge, with copper sitting at a whopping $4.51 a pound as of Wednesday. 

Residents have lamented these brazen thefts, which they claim puts them in danger. 

Local resident Hector Pereira shared his concerns with NBC4, saying, “I think it’s a pretty bad idea. It’s also really dangerous for them too, they are not electricians – there is a reason why this stuff is covered up.”

Billy Avellan, another fed-up local, claims that he has tried to do something about this, telling NBC4, “I first reported it to 311 six months ago.  It’s sad. I walk this bridge every day, I can’t take a regular walk that you tax me for every time – because it’s too dark. It’s not safe.”

Last year, Los Angeles lawmakers attempted to act on these allegations, asking for $400,000 to create a so-called “copper wire theft task force” to curb these sorts of thefts. 

Councilmember Kevin de León said at the time, “I’m tasking our bureau to figure out a better way to reinforce you know it’s not a question of if they come back it’s a question when they come back – it’s almost virtually impossible for them to steal it.”

However, lawmakers have yet to create a firm plan to prevent these costly and dangerous thefts which have become increasingly common. 

Similar thefts have broken out across America, with many thieves targeting the copper-rich charging cords found on electric vehicle charging stations.  

Years of crime tolerance have created an uphill battle for Los Angeles lawmakers 

Lawmakers in Democrat-controlled cities like Los Angeles have neglected to control crime. 

As a direct result, crime rates have surged in recent years, impacting law-abiding citizens in the worst ways possible. 

Lawmakers in these urban centers are now at wit’s end, trying to prevent crime without angering the “woke” mob that helped to elect them. 

To make matters worse, many District Attorneys have failed to lift a finger against crime, even as thieves tear the city to pieces.
