Forest stated that the efforts were paying off because the recyclers had been instrumental in helping in the investigation and conviction of metal thieves. Mr. Majors said that the next focus would be to include other areas so that thieves would not just move their business to other areas. He said that wyandotte County had recently adopted a similar ordinance and that it would aid in stopping the illegal sale of metals.
