Here’s a slightly humorous, and probably not uncommon today, article from the Washington Post, printed on May 13th, 1927.

Plumbing fixtures, valued at $1,150, were stolen during the last two weeks from vacant houses at 3641, 3643, 3645, 3647, 3649 and 3651 Veazey street northwest. The robbery was reported to Fourteenth precinct police yesterday by T. L. Cox, an agent for the B. F. Saul real estate firm, 925 Fifteenth street northwest. The stolen articles ranged from fancy spigots to porcelain kitchen sinks.
