The crime takes place in broad daylight in busy parking lots. Passers-by see someone taking aluminum cans out of a trailer, but don't realize it is theft.

A rash of recent aluminum can thefts has affected both the Superior Amateur Hockey Association (SAHA) and the Superior/Douglas County Pony Football League.
