Legislation goes for the gold to protect theft victims

Chicago S-T
Sunday, 31 March 2013

When Anna Moeller was almost certain she had found her mother’s stolen brooch on eBay, she went to the Hoffman Estates store that was advertising the piece for sale. But without any records of where the piece came from at the store, and no proof of her owns, she couldn’t say for sure whether the brooch was the one that had been taken from her home months before. She ended up buying the brooch. The transaction spurred Moeller, an Elgin City Council member, to contact state Rep. Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake), to work on legislation that would prevent that kind of uncertainty.
