Metal Prices and Metal Theft

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Metal theft refers to the theft of items for the value of their constituent metals. According to the rational choice perspective, the rate of metal thefts should be directly related to the price paid for the metals involved. Using police crime reports for metal thefts in Indianapolis, this study examines the relationship between copper, aluminum, and platinum prices and the theft of items containing these metals during 2008.
