eBay PROACT investigators Assist With Arrest of Store Employee

eBay PROACT investigators worked closely with member company supporting investigation and subsequent arrest of employee involved in overnight theft activity over greater than $30,000. Police say an overnight switchboard operator at the department store, admitted that watching TV shows “The Sopranos,” “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad” helped him hatch the idea to take items from the store since characters on those shows steal and are never caught. “TV is TV, but this is reality,” said investigating police officer. “If you steal merchandise, you will be caught and this is proof. People need to separate the difference between TV and reality.” Police later recovered of $29,296 in merchandise from the suspects parents’ home, where he lived. Among the items stolen were clothing, purses, jewelry, fragrances and cosmetics.

"Build the field and they'll come to play!"  An expression that many never truly understand or practice.  Especially in today's world where we're all expected to do more with less and corporate America has tightened the budgets to the levels most of us have never seen before.  Having faith that your performance will bring promotions, increased salaries, and new jobs is very difficult in today's climate.  But we all have to keep the faith and do our best every day regardless.  Because at the end, it's what defines us and sooner or later our positive actions will pay off.
