The City of Gresham wants its grates back.
18 catch basin grates have gone missing around Gresham over the last two weeks. Jennifer Belknap Williamson with the City of Gresham says the grates initially went missing on March 10th. "The challenge is if someone's riding a bike they could fall into a hole, or if someone walking, or a car could go into it and cause an accident. So it's pretty dangerous for those grates to be missing," she told out news partner KGW.
The cost to replace those grates is $7,400, while a thief that stole more than 70 in 2011 got just $7 each before he was finally arrested.
