Bill would revoke business license of stores that buy stolen goods

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

The D.C. Council is set to take action that may have thieves thinking twice before committing a crime.

They'll consider a bill that would revoke the business license of stores that buy and sell stolen goods - most notably cell phones.

The legislation is designed to prevent robberies by eliminating an incentive for thieves who know they can trade in stolen phones.
