Proposed New Rules in Nampa Target Fly-By-Night Precious Metals Dealers

Posted By on Sun, Jun 1, 2014 at 10:05 AM

Canyon County law enforcement say they want to be better able to track stolen property—precious metals in particular—and that's why they're supporting proposed new rules that will be taken up Monday, June 2, by the Nampa City Council.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the Nampa Council will consider amendments to the city's precious metals ordinance, which would require dealers to keep more detailed records of all transactions, including names, addresses and copies of state-issued identification.

The Press-Tribune reports that the ordinance is modeled after similar rules in the city of Boise, which also require the files to be available for inspection during business hours.

Police say they're particularly interested in precious metals dealers who occasionally set up shop in hotel rooms for a weekend but vanish a few days later.
