Probably not. I've come upon car-strippers in Philadelphia before. Twice. In the same day. Apparently they work Sunday mornings, go figure. It's not just one guy, it's a whole group of people with a van to put the removed parts in. (Helpful hint for Phila visitors coming from the west: when both river drives AND the Schuylkill Expressway are closed, just give up; heading in on the surface streets through North Philadelphia is rarely a good idea. That applies either side of the Schuylkill)

There's a retired guy who fixes cars in our alley. It doesn't bother me. He doesn't block access, picks up after himself and also cleans up any other litter around. This isn't an unaccepted behavior given the socioeconomic makeup of my neighborhood.
