Call it Grand Theft Building.

Last week, scrap metal thieves in southwest suburban Shorewood weren’t content with mere scraps.

They first apparently called the owner of a business next to 18400 Frontage Road along I-55 and told him the structure was being dismantled that day because the property had been sold, the Will County Sheriff’s office says.

They then pulled up two semi-trucks to the building — and tore it down. They removed the steel from the structure and then carted it away in the trucks, officials said.
