COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A restroom rip-off in central Ohio has automatic flushers disappearing from the bathrooms at restaurants
and other businesses.

Police say it's been happening in at least a couple Columbus suburbs. Investigators don't know if the thefts are related.

Handyman John Hahn tells WBNS-TV the flushers are likely being stolen for scrap because they contain a metal called red brass that can bring $2.50 per pound.

He says safeguards are needed because the flushers can be costly to repair.
