IL: New State Law Targets Organized Retail Crime

Governor J-B Pritzker is signing a new law to combat organized retail theft in Illinois.

Pritzker says the law gives local prosecutors more authority to go after smash-and-grab criminals in other counties and the Illinois Attorney General could prosecute through a statewide grand jury…

The law also creates the “Inform Act”, cracking down on stolen goods being sold online by requiring third-party sellers to verify their identity.
