The city of Flint may soon propose new regulations on pawn shops and scrap yards.
Flint police chief James Tolbert says he’s concerned about “the crime behind the crime” of burglaries in the city.
He’s looking at a new ordinance for city pawn shops and scrap yards.
“We’re working on a way where we can better monitor what goes in and goes out,” says Tolbert, though he declined to say exactly how that would be done.
Tolbert says he’s also been talking with other Genesee County chiefs of police about the problem.
