Locally......police are looking to crack down on stealing to purchase drugs.

If approved.....pawn shops would be required to jot down serial numbers and

take pictures of people bringing in merchandise for cash.

Police say not only would it discourage and catch thieves....but it would be easier for victims

to get their belongings back.

La Porte County Prosecutor John Lake says it's something he wants required countywide.....

The La Porte County sheriff's office is proposing an ordinance.

So far....no vote has been taken but approval is expected to be sought soon from the county

commissioners and county council.

Similar requirements are also proposed for scrap yards.
