Toilets are money

China's continuing demand for steel had lead to the phenomena of metal man-holes being stolen and sold for scrap all over Hong Kong and China. Now, the theives have gone the next step: public toilets.:

Police have stepped up patrols of West Kowloon public toilets following a rise in the theft of water taps, metal gates and drain and manhole covers.
The SCMP reports that amongst the items stolen are a hand dryer, a steel soap dispenser and a tissue holder. Luckily the Government has the perfect solution to the crime: they are putting up notices in public toilets saying "Theft Could Put U in Jail".

That will stop them.
