    Unfortunately, the idea that some thieves aren't too bright was true for this guy, since the safe dragging along the street behind the wrecker happened to catch the attention of local law enforcement....
    Lol , we had the same thing happen up here , but the perp was smart enough to pull the safe up on the back and drive away . there were also a bunch of ATMs done this way .

    RSSZ, When I looked at this guys safe, it didn't seem to have penetrated the fire proofing. The outside skin is only about 1/8" thick and a decent torch guy could cut it before the interior temps reached a destroying point.. Remember these are primarily fire safes with aprox. 1/2 hour or so ratings at a 1000+ degrees!
    Also there are easily (some what anyway) portable cutting torches. You wouldn't need a large bottle set to burn that safe.

  5. It doesn't matter if sheep "are safe", it just matters that they "feel" safe.
