Do you suspect that you may have been a victim of price gouging?
Under California Penal Code 396, individuals, businesses and other entities are prohibited from raising the price of major necessities (food, drink, water, flashlights, medical supplies, antibacterial products, etc.) by more than 10% for 30 days after a declaration of emergency.
Similarly, Riverside County Ordinance 768 states that it is unlawful for any person, company, or business to sell or offer to sell emergency items (consumer food, emergency/medical supplies, or gasoline) for an amount which exceeds 10% the price charged for said goods on the day prior to the emergency proclamation.
A violation of this code or ordinance can result in fines and possible jailtime.
