Sounds like a headline you might expect to hear out of Baltimore.
But it isn't! This story is out of St. Louis.
(Though I'm a bit ashamed to mention that the only reason this probably isn't a problem in Baltimore is because Baltimore brick isn't particularly good. Hence Formstone and painted brick. Baltimore brick is pretty enough, but kinda soft and easy to tunnel through, as many a burglar knows. Speaking of which, are they still stealing lampposts in Baltimore or has that somehow stopped?)
