Reducing Scrap Metal Theft

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - There will soon be tighter restrictions in the scrap metal market.

Governor Rick Snyder is expected to sign legislation today to help reduce metal theft.

The new rules will mean scrap yards will only buy items by mailing a check or debit card to sellers unless the payment is under 25 dollars.

According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau Michigan ranked 10th in the nation in scrap metal theft between 2009 and 2011.
