Thieves are taking aluminum pieces of the actual boardwalk at Beach 108th Street and trying to sell them for scrap.
Scrapping, as it’s a called, is hot right now.
A neighborhood man says many of his friend are “scrappers”
“I know friends who do it — they run around collecting metal they are young … you get a van you are good to go,” he told PIX11.
Police arrested three teens here at 111th Street for allegedly putting the aluminum in a truck and they admitted to police that they were selling it for scrap.
