CLEVELAND (AP) - Police investigators in Ohio say they are recovering more stolen goods from Internet auction Web sites such as e-Bay.
Jeff Capretto is a special agent in charge of a task force representing six Cleveland suburbs.
He says that in the past, police would often make recoveries from flea markets and sometimes pawn shops. Now, e-Bay has become an electronic flea market.
Investigators call the practice of peddling stolen goods online "e-fencing." The National Retail Federation calls it one of the fastest-growing issues they have to deal with.
