Ordinance Would Make Secondhand Stores Keep Same Records as Pawn Shops


Secondhand stores in Springfield would have to follow the same rules as pawn shops, keeping detailed records of the items they purchase, under a new ordinance that will be considered by the City Council later this month.

 

Alderman Tim Griffin is the sponsor, and says the measure is aimed at deterring thieves from trying to unload stolen merchandise at those second-hand stores.

 

If approved, the measure would require secondhand stores to keep detailed records and photographs of the items they purchase, along with a digital picture of the seller’s photo ID.
