Theft of urinal items stumps officials

Published:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Officials in Alabama say they're investigating a series of thefts involving metal urinal components from restaurant bathrooms.

Jefferson County sheriff's spokesman Randy Christian said that authorities have been told of a man walking into men's rooms and stealing flush valves and supply lines from urinals.

Christian says the pipes weren't made of copper and would have little value if a thief tried selling them as scrap metal. Christian says officials are unsure why the items are being stolen.
