    A D.C. electronics store owner who was accused of selling hundreds of stolen phones, cameras and laptops at his store's location in Northwest was found guilty Thursday.

    According to court documents, D.C. police raided the 12 Volt Mobile Electronics store in the 300 block of H Street NW in 2011 and confiscated thousands of dollars' worth of stolen electronics, including cell phones and electronic guitars. Officers also found Medicare, social security and credit cards.

    Prosecutors say the store owner, 49-year-old David Brown of Capitol Heights, Md., would receive stolen items from individuals who conducted various crimes, then re-sell them at his store.

    Brown was found guilty of felony trafficking in stolen property charges and faces a prison sentence of 10 to 28 months.
