Just a few weeks ago, a radio station in Oklahoma went off the air, after thieves cut down a broadcast tower just to get $100 worth of copper from the cables. But that’s NOTHING compared to THIS!
On Friday, a radio station in Alabama (our radio siblings at WJLX) announced that someone had STOLEN an entire 200-FOOT STEEL TOWER. Like, it’s gone, without a trace!
According to a Facebook post, the station owner said that a building was vandalized, every piece of equipment was stolen out of it, and they cut the wires to the tower, downed it, and took it from the property! It’s actually really impressive if you think about it!
The owner doesn’t mention anything about surveillance, only to say that the police are investigating.
But something tells me that the thief (or likely thieves) WILL be tracked down because SOMEONE had to see them making off with a 200-foot tower, right?! The first thing I’d do is call the local scrap yards to be on the look out for anything that looks like it used to be a piece of a tower.
