I must say, this is pretty ballsy:
Police in the Mexican border city of Tijuana say they have arrested six men for stealing pieces of the U.S. border fence to sell as scrap metal. […]
The first two men caught cutting into the fence on Monday. An alleged accomplice was detained Tuesday with 11 pieces of fencing. The U.S. Border Patrol alerted police to three more suspects.
Police said Wednesday in a statement that the men may face federal charges because the fence area is considered federal property.
There really wasn’t a less guarded fence in all of Tijuana?
