UNDATED (WHTC) -- A bill was signed into law on Thursday that provides tools to help police combat metal theft.  Governor Rick Snyder said, “We cannot allow metal thieves to damage homes, farms, utilities, businesses, schools and other public properties.”  Common-sense reforms will make it more difficult for people to quickly and easily sell stolen metals.  A recent National Insurance Crime Bureau study showed that the state of Michigan ranked 10th in the U.S. for scrap metal insurance claims in 2013.
