‘Cash for gold’ industry needs to be regulated claim

In light of the increased amounts of robberies in South Tipperary/West Waterford, Independent TD Mattie McGrath has called on the Minister for Justice to introduce increased regulation of the Cash for Gold and scrap Industries as a matter of urgency.

“In recent weeks and months we have witnessed an increased number of house robberies with gold jewellery being the main target, we have also witnessed metal of all sorts being stolen and sold for cash. This industry has to be regulated to prevent these thieves from being able to sell on stolen goods in broad daylight” said McGrath
