    they ought to be under the very same constraints as a pawn shop....

    no sales until 30 days go buy, meaning the recyclers have to store them on site.

    take a photo ID of the person presenting them for sale.

    It’s a big issue in the Northeast as well-particularly if you have a Toyota. Land Cruisers,Tacomas and Priuses are the primary targets.

    Same in rural south Alabama. It'd have to be an awfully skinny pillbilly to get under my Corvette though, lol.

    They've been stealing them off church vans here... sometimes waiting a week or two and coming back to get the new ones too.
