City, jeweler mutually drop matter of reported stolen items

The City of Beaufort has dropped charges against the owner of a jewelry store after a dispute about the city's ability to revoke a business license.

The city pulled David Kinard's license after he was accused of violating a precious metals ordinance where several items that had been reported stolen were sold to Kindard's shop, The Jeweler's Bench at 603 Carteret Street.
