I have to agree with justcurious, the company must have known they could and would be targeted. It is a shame that everything out, needs to be tied or locked down. This isn't going to be an easy task for WCSD either.

Hard to believe that anyone would leave these materials unprotected considering all of the press the theft of these things has had over the past few years. The company must have known that they could be targeted for theft.
