Some thieves have been literally ripping off parking meters in the uptown, with 19 meters stolen on Sydney and Charlotte Streets since January of this year alone to the tune of over $10,000. That value doesn't include any of the money that would have been deposited in the meters.
Sergeant Jay Henderson explains the problem seems to be getting worse with 12 meters stolen in the last week, and 5 last weekend.
