d. 
Grounds for denial. Grounds for recommending denial of license may include reliable information indicating that the applicant has, in the past, engaged in fraudulent or deceptive business practices in a business identical to or similar to a dealer in secondhand goods. A license may be denied if the investigation reveals a conviction of the applicant or any of its principal officers or employees of any crime(s), disorderly persons offense(s) in which deceit or misrepresentation is an element; or any conviction of any crime(s), disorderly persons offense involving theft or the receiving of stolen goods, regardless of whether the applicant was a principal, accessory before the fact, after the fact, or a co-conspirator; or any prior municipal ordinance violation(s) by the applicant or any of its principal officers or employees in this or any other jurisdiction.

Dealer protection. Upon probable cause that goods held by a dealer are stolen, and providing that the seller signed the mandatory declaration of ownership required by Subsection 5-3.5b upon the sale of those goods, a law enforcement officer with jurisdiction may charge the seller with theft by deception under N.J.S.A. 2C:20-4 on behalf of the dealer, who shall be considered the "victim" of the offense for the purposes of N.J.S.A. 2C:43-3.

3. 
Procedure.

The notice shall advise the dealer of the right to appeal within 10 days of receiving the notice. If the dealer appeals this determination, the suspension or revocation shall not go into effect until the appeal has been adjudicated.

f. 
Appeal. Any applicant wishing to appeal a suspension or revocation shall be entitled to a hearing before the Borough Administrator.
