Couple Steals Toilet Parts From McDonald’s
A plumber and his wife have been charged in the theft of toilet flush valves from McDonalds’ restaurants.
Patrick Ring, 45 and Dianna Rodrigues, 41 were arrested on Feb. 6 after police caught them when they were allegedly stealing metal.
According to San Antonio Police, Ring and Rodrigues went to several McDonalds’ restaurants and stole the toilet flush valves.
The couple would then sell the metal from the valve to make some quick cash.
The thieves have also been linked to similar thefts at other restaurants in San Antonio.
An intact toilet valve has a street value of around $25, if the valve is scrapped for its copper or brass, it will usually fetch less than $10.
