Cell phone theft in this country is on the rise – some are calling it an epidemic – but there’s not really any incentive for the industry to help curb the increase.
Thieves steal millions of dollars of plastic pallets and milk cases from businesses. Sold to recyclers, the plastic is then used to make new pallets and milk cases.
There’s word today the federal government is moving to render those stolen cell phones a lot less valuable. The plan is to make phone companies keep a registry of specific phones as opposed to phone numbers.
