This legislation implements a section of the city code to deal with second hand dealers, who are defined as individuals who are engaged in the business of buying, trading, selling, bartering, or exchanging second hand personal property.  Property includes jewelry, precious gems, furs, gold, silver, paintings, sculptures, and electrical devices.  And serial numbered items.  The waiting period gives us the opportunity to apprehend illegal activity.  This legislation also requires proper identification of the seller and the dealer is required to keep proper records for the police department to investigate at any time.

George Hebert, 40 Masten Ave., if I understand this correctly, if the dealer knowingly accepts goods, that are proven to be stolen, the only maximum fine for the dealer is $250.00 or 15 days in jail?  Is this State Law.
