Area salvage yards aid law enforcement
MONROE - Stolen scrap metals from the area often end up at salvage yards, which has led to businesses and local law enforcement working together to help stop property crime. Behr Iron and Metal in Monroe has set up stop-gaps to weed out stolen items at their 14 salvage yards across the Midwest, including Monroe. Though selling stolen metal is not a very common occurrence, Behr workers are trained to be aware of suspicious materials coming into their salvage yards.
