Not only did the wedding fail to save the structure from being torn down to build a new apartment building, but somebody broke into the site over last weekend and stripped $600 worth of “copper pipe, wiring and copper from transformers and electrical boxes” in the old building’s basement. The SPD report on the burglary is below.
