Authorities say thieves are targeting car batteries in Georgia.

The state’s current law does not treat batteries as a regulated metal. That means metal recyclers don’t have to keep records on who brings the batteries in.

Police have seen an increase in car and truck battery thefts. They urge large fleet holders to safeguard their equipment.

The Georgia recyclers association is asking its members to voluntarily start treating batteries as a regulated metal and keep records of who sells them.
