Dealer accused of breach – call for info on stolen stuff

BYRON Bay police are seeking information from the public about stolen goods after alleging a second-hand dealer in the Byron Bay area has breached the Pawnbrokers and Second Hand Dealers Act.

In a statement released by the Byron/Tweed Local Area Command, police said detectives and Target Action Group police identified a second-hand dealer who they will allege was lacking compliance with legislation governing the buying and selling of second hand property.

Police conducted a joint inspection of the dealer's premises with the Department of Fair Trading NSW last Wednesday and will now commence proceeding in relation to the breaches of the Act.

Police have asked for assistance from the community to report people who may be involved in stealing goods or those who may be receiving stolen goods.
