MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Medford shopping cart ordinance starts on Sunday, April 1, 2018. You could be cited or arrested for theft if you take a shopping cart from a Medford business. 

Starting Sunday, shopping carts are required to have the business name, a contact number, and a statement saying unauthorized removal of the cart is a crime. 

If a business is notified that one of their carts was found abandoned, they have seven days to pick it up. If they don't pick it up they will be charged $50 per cart. 

Medford Police say some businesses give unmarked carts to the homeless community. If a person has a lawfully obtained cart, they will not be cited or arrested.
