Always sad to see this sort of thing. I once had an apartment when I was younger and much poorer and one of the maintenance people stole my mini-mag flashlight. Many thieves are opportunistic, they will steal it because they have the opportunity, not out of need. The maintenance people were likely earning much more than I was at the time.

Wharnie for the whin!
