(INDIANAPOLIS) - Scrap and precious metal thieves beware - Indianapolis Metro Police are looking for you.

Teams of officers are visiting area scrap metal yards to educate owners on city and state ordinances designed to keep the business honest. Officials hope the legitimate dealers will take a pro-active stance in helping to identify those who are less than honorable in their businesses.

Lieutenant Marshall Depew says the theft of scrap metal is getting out of hand and officials are making it a priority to stop it. Officers have investigated hundreds of metal thefts this year alone with 44 catalytic converters stolen from one parking lot this week.

Depew says the goal of the visits will be one of collaboration and cooperation, but officers will act upon any illegal activity they find.
