From the MTA to the power equipment black market. DNA Info reports that the MTA has suffered at least eighteen break-ins of its storage rooms so far this year. MTA data shows that’s eighteen more thefts of mechanical equipment, pneumatic drills, and electrical gadgets than last year. The most active criminal has ripped off about $10,000 worth of tools during a spree through two Brooklyn subway stations.
