Thieves on the doorstep?

Yesterday, a reader emailed us the report below. Does anyone have any thoughts on what the motive for this type of theft could be? Please let us know in the comments.

We have had the brass kick plates on the front doors of two different residential properties stolen in the past few weeks. We feel that this crime, although minor, is ongoing in the community and needs to be shared so as to alert others. I am sure we are not the only ones. We are in the process of reporting it to the police. We have a neighbor who called the missing kick plates to our attention, asking us if we had noticed that ours was missing. They had noticed the loss of theirs. One of buildings is a three flat, the other is a six flat. Surveying the neighboring buildings ourselves, we noticed others that are missing. We live in the 5600 North, 1400 West area of the neighborhood.
