Scrappers in Action

Postby Customized Dental Lab » Tue Feb 19, 2008 12:16 am

C'mon folks... I know some of you must have pics of scrappers doing their thing, or at least the aftermath of scrapping.

I'll start the festivities with this nice pair of radiators. Taken November 2007.

I'm probably supposed to blur out the license plates? Fuck it.

I didn't have the camera with me this morning...but some fine folks were nice enough to smash through the glass door at the soon to be Angelina's Bistro on the corner of Broadway and Witherell. The construction dudes said that they pretty much unloaded the place of anything that wasn't nailed down. Have fun doing business in Detroit!

Sounds like the perfect occasion for a "shotgun sleepover" at your place of business...

This morning it appears that RAGS on Broadway got the Angelina's treatment. I still don't understand why that guy from Mezzanine opened his business on the second floor. Pussy.

I remember when the Superbowl was here the temporary store in the 1001 parking gargae was broken into 5 days in a row. There are so many smash and grabs in this city it amazing that the fools on DY bitch when business owners have the nerve to install protective gates so this type of shit doesn't happen.

Is the white boy junkie window washer back in town?

He was the fucktard responsible for half of the auto break-ins up and down Broadway back in 2005-2007. Soon as he disappeared, the numbers dropped pretty significantly.

I haven't seen him in a long time, I'd been hoping he finally died.

His descent would have made for a good picture thread here. The first time I saw him he was semi-clean but there were sores on his face in no time. And he always had a sarcastic remark when you wouldn't give him money.

Coaches Corner got boosted by some enterprising soul who hid in the basement until the night crew left. Got out with the ATM and the safe before anyone responded the alarm.

Sadly, the thief didn't set fire to the den of douchebaggery before he fled.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

He used to hang out in the park and would head over to the burned out Westchester to have sex with prostitutes on the fire escapes and shoot up. He liked to shoot up in his ankles and feet, the better to hobble, I'm sure.

Total asshole. Last few years I've figured he died. That, or his white suburban family came and scooped his ass up and took him to rehab in which case his "brother-down-on-his-luck" lip was all the more annoying.
My Goodness! What's going on? What's happening?

I haven't seen him in a long time either. The question I have is, did anyone ever see him actually washing windows?

Yes. He wasn't very good at it.

I saw him wash the windows of Bookies Bar a handful of times, but that was it.

Talking to the staff at DBC and Small Plates, they were all highly suspect of him and several times called the po-po after they directly observed him break into cars...but the police could never seem to find enough evidence on him to tie him to the breakins. Apparently having six witnesses and no physical evidence is not enough for an arrest.

Mr. Parrish identified him as a B&E perp twice. He got popped for one of them for about 3 months...3 months in which B&Es on Broadway dropped significantly.
