Breakers at the Supercharger in the Dalles Oregon were stolen. Is this a thing? What is the market for high volt, high amp breakers? Indoor pot farms? the Salmon Creek Supercharger was off line after startup due to a defective breaker and it was a couple of months before it was back on line. Is there a shortage of this type of breaker?

That seems to be going around in Oregon. The Baker City Supercharger was down for a week or two from its breakers being stolen too. In that one, it wasn't just the Supercharger. The Maurice's store nearby also had large commercial breakers stolen from it too. This thread has a few items about it. It also mentions about cost value that just the breakers from the Supercharger was about $12,000 worth.
