Shoot. The junk men cruise the alleys here on a daily basis with trucks stacked with fridges, washers, dryers, etc.
When I was younger, we cut up some parts cars in the garage and put them out in the alley in sections. Gone.
Anything metal is usually gone within an hour or two.
They even tried to snatch the tire when I was changing a flat on my wife's Jeep. I jacked up the truck, took off the tire, went into the garage for a rag or something and heard the junk man lock up his brakes.
When I came out, he was snatching the tire. He was unsuccessful.
