Alderman Wants New Rules For Jewelry Stores Buying Items From Public


A Springfield alderman expects to have a draft ordinance soon on a plan to require jewelry stores to follow some of the procedures that already apply to pawn shops when it comes to purchasing items from the general public. 

 

Ward 10 Alderman Tim Griffin says the new rules are necessary to protect theft victims, whose stolen jewelry is often taken to retailers for quick cash.  Griffin says the ordinance will likely require stores to check the seller’s photo ID and have them sign a form. 

 

It may also impose a waiting period where the jewelry store would have to hold the item before reselling it or melting it down, but the details are still being worked out.
