From the train conductor:

"Folks, we will be going a bit slow through this section of track.
Recyclers have stolen the signaling cable for the next few miles."

Copper is that valuable? Wow. And here I remember selling an entire
copper boiler for scrap when I was 17 for $60 bucks at the metal
recyclers.

Copper theft is a HUGE problem down here, as well. This past weekend some of them stole new piping from a synagogue that was in the process of getting itself back together after the federal flood, and flooded the whole place again.

Several of my friends who have had to repair and replumb their houses have had their pipes stolen as well.
