The Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to hold a public hearing at their next meeting to decide if the Danvers Coin, Jewelry and Estate Buyers should have its license suspended, revoked, or limited.
Through investigation by Detective Robert Sullivan, Ouellette said the department learned that, in many instances, the description of the property taken in was very vague and not properply detailed. "As a result of that, [Sullivan] was unable to clarify if some of the jewelry was stolen," Ouellette said.
Further investigation into the vaguely described items showed that some of the jewelry that was bought by the store was in fact associated with stolen property, Ouellette said.
Danvers Coin and Jewelry was before the board for other shortcomings in 2010, Ouellette noted. At that time, the owner had pledged cooperation.
The business will receive notice to attend the June 5 Board of Selectmen meeting for their public hearing. At that time the business will have an opportunity to speak, hear a completed briefing from Ouellette, and the Board will vote on how to take action.
