Law enforcement in Utah ought to consider putting up decoys that are remotely monitored where police can respond in a timely manner.

Metal theft is getting quite common. The legislature ought to consider enhanced penalties. I suggest the thief be liable for 4 times the amount that was to be stolen or $25,000, which ever is greater. The money to be put into a fund to compensate victims of theft and to pay for the additional expense of the decoys.
