Description

In the past month I have noticed that two historical markers (made of metal)have been removed (I guess - stolen). The first one commemorated a speech given by Abraham Lincoln on the corner of State Street and Court Street about workers rights. The other plaque was on the New Haven Green on the corner of Chapel and College and it commemorated the French immigrant who invented the bicycle.
Who's stealing all the signs? How much money can they get for a metal sign? Who is the fence for such goods? Don't legitament smelters report stolen property to the police?
