Notice about Price Gouging:
It is unlawful during a declared state of emergency in California to sell specified consumer goods or services for a price more than 10% greater than charged previously. (Penal Code section 396(b).) Violation of this law can result in criminal or civil law enforcement action against retailers engaging in this illegal conduct.
The Sutter County District Attorney’s office is tasked with prosecuting crimes such as price gouging during a declared state of emergency. Our community should not have to worry about being cheated while dealing with the effects of Coronavirus.
If you experience price gouging, we urge you to take a photo of the product and the price tag, and then report offenders by submitting information, including date and retail location, to: https://www.suttercounty.org/contact/da
