Organized Retail Crime Legislation


H.R. 6491, the Organized Retail Crime Act of 2008 was introduced on July 15, 2008 by Representative Brad Ellsworth, D-Ind., with Representative Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, as the lead co-sponsor. The bill would define organized retail crime as “the acquiring of retail merchandise by illegal means for the purpose of reselling the items” and make such activity – including transportation, sale or receipt of stolen retail goods, – a federal crime.
