    Since so much metal is stolen, companies that buy it should be required to fully identify who they buy it from, including photo ID, and photos and voice recording of the sellers, their vehicle license plates, their home address, and all payments by check so there is a record of the transaction. Also fingerprinting of sellers. And put in a database searchable by police. After all, as a public transaction, they have nothing to hide.

    Is the metal recycling company in trouble for receiving (fencing) stolen property? Did they have to return it and eat the money they paid for it? Or are they off-the-hook by just saying they didn't know it was "hot?" As long as thieves can get money for such merchandise, the incentive is there for them to continue stealing. If that loophole hasn't been fixed, it needs to be.
