Best Window Shopping for Copper Thieves

Charleston Distilling Co.

Staff Pick

Copper theft is a billion dollar enterprise these days, what with the metal going for $3 a pound and China gobbling it up at a record-breaking pace. Which is why those Moscow Mule cups are so dang expensive and why we were so impressed with the new Charleston Distilling Co. on King Street. For real, that place must have a ton of copper details in there — which would add up to thousands of dollars worth. You could buy a lot of crystal meth with that. Just ask the jokers who keep knocking over our air conditioning unit at the City Paper and stealing all the copper out of it. In related news, shiny copper sure is pretty.
