Description
Summary:Research examining the methods of disposing of stolen goods is sparse. To date, very little research has been conducted on the characteristics of stolen-goods markets or the patterns of disposing of goods post-theft. This study examines the ways in which goods stolen through shoplifting and burglary are disposed of. Data from 50 in-depth, qualitative interviews with prolific burglars show what goods are stolen via burglary and shoplifting. Results also show that residential fences and network sales are the primary routes through which goods enter the stolen-goods markets in Shropshire, England
