I would have thought that if he hadn't been caught on the way there, the recycling center would have called the cops on him. What did he expect them to say when he got there with it?

"So, Mr. Valero. You just happened to have a spare 40 foot street lamp just lying around and couldn't get a pawn shop to give you a loan for it?"

"Hey, I found it, all right?"

Baron, this is Miami. My guess is the rule of thumb at the recycling center as anywhere else is:

Ask no questions.

dittos, jeff.
around here it's a don't ask, don't tell deal.

"While police were arresting Valera, a second man, Joseph Moniz, 39, came peddling a manhole cover to the recycling center. Officers promptly arrested him."

While they were arresting Mr. Moniz, another person drove into the recycling center with a police car.

With reasoning like that, he should be mayor!

How much you want to bet the city then kept the light pole rather than return it to the power company?

"While police were arresting Valera, a second man, Joseph Moniz, 39, came peddling a manhole cover to the recycling center. Officers promptly arrested him."

So, I'm guessing that they were in a very unmarked police car? Otherwise Mr. Moniz has some definite vision problems.

I first misread that as "pedaling", and envisioned him somehow riding the cover like a unicycle...

That was such a good plan!
