Vandal Busts Gas Pipe
|Kicking a gas pipe is not popular these days|
Along those lines, a pipe-obsessed vandal was spotted last week in the 4800 block of Mission.
A witness told police he'd been minding his own business within his business when he heard "a loud thud." He wandered outside to see aman walking away from a gas pipe "which was protruding from the victim's building" and was now inundating the neighborhood with the odor of natural gas.
For good measure, the vandal kicked a water pipe while marching away from the scene of the crime, breaking that vessel as well.
The alleged miscreant is described as a 5-foot-9 Hispanic man weighing 170-odd pounds, aged 21 or so years, and having a thing for pipes.
