Hot commodity

Brazen thieves stole $2,000 worth of copper from a Flushing Avenue construction site — the latest heist of the most precious of semi-precious metals.

The 38-year-old victim told police that he left his business near Vanderbilt Avenue for the weekend on Oct. 14. When he returned days later, copper piping and tools were gone.

It’s a common crime at construction sites, where copper is rarely secured, despite its increasing value.

Where: 130 Flushing Ave.
