Using RFID to Battle Theft Surge
Macy's Aims RFID at Organized Retail Theft

Radio-frequency identification chips provide insights into where, when and what items are being stolen, says Macy's vice president of asset protection

Amid a recent spate of high-profile thefts targeting retailers nationwide, Macy's Inc. said it is leaning on radio-frequency identification technology for asset protection.

RFID chips tagged to merchandise provide the retailer real-time information on where and when certain products are being stolen, said Joe Coll, vice president of asset protection, operations and strategy at Macy's. RFID data can also inform the chain on where best to focus security in stores, he said.

Strategies combating retail theft have become especially important during a surge in organized retail crime-incidents where items are stolen in order to be resold. Recent high-profile "flash mob" thefts at stores like Nordstrom Inc., Best Buy Co. Inc. and Louis Vuitton have brought national attention to the issue.

In retail scenarios, RFID can take the form of stickers with a metallic overlay attached to an item's tags, said Sandeep Unni, a senior director analyst in Gartner's retail industry research practice. The technology isn't new, and retailers have been experimenting with it since the early 2000s with varying degrees of success, he said, adding that its most common use is for inventory tracking and management.

At Macy's, data is collected when the identification chip passes through "smart exits" equipped with sensors, according to Mr. Coll. Macy's can then access the relevant video footage and determine which criminals took which merchandise, he added.

The technology also gives Macy's the ability to understand what types of items were more likely to be stolen at what times of year, Mr. Coll said. Winter coats, for instance, were a huge target for thieves in the late summer and early fall, he said.

After Macy's introduced the technology to the asset-protection side of the business in 2016, sensors were placed at both customer and employee exits, Mr. Coll said. The store was immediately able to identify employees-some of whom had worked at the company for over 20 years and never been under investigation-stealing merchandise, he said. wsj.com

Florida Theft Bill One Step Closer to Becoming Law
House committee advances bill tackling organized retail theft

The bill comes as authorities scramble to stop a nationwide crime retail crime wave.

Lawmakers took another step Tuesday toward cracking down on organized crime in Florida. Under a proposal (HB 1511) by Newberry Republican Rep. Chuck Clemons, the state would levy stiffer penalties against thieves who steal from multiple stores within a short period of time.

The House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Subcommittee OK'd the bill with a 15-3 vote. It will appear next before the House Judiciary Committee, marking the bill's final committee stop.

The proposal comes as lawmakers nationwide wrestle with a wave of organized shoplifting rings. The crime - coined "boosting" - involves multiple thieves coordinating to steal multiple items across different retailers.

The thieves often return the merchandise later for a store credit or sell the merchandise online, the latter of which makes it nearly impossible for law enforcement to trace, according to a staff analysis.

But in an effort to deter organized theft, the bill would subject perpetrators to a third-degree felony if they commit five or more retail thefts within a 30-day period and steal 10 or more items from at least two different locations. Those who steal 20 or more items, meanwhile, may face a second-degree felony.

"This is becoming a larger and larger problem not only in Florida, but across the nation," Clemons said.

Attorney General Ashley Moody is among the bill's proponents. In early February, she stressed the measure's importance on Fox Business and suggested criminals may have more luck in cities with "liberal executives." floridapolitics.com

Seattle's New ORC Partnership
Seattle, King County prosecutors will partner on organized retail theft
The King County Prosecutor's Office and the Seattle city attorney are launching a new partnership to tackle organized retail theft. The move comes as local merchants say they've seen an increase in high-volume shoplifting. They partly blame the increase on third-party sellers who unload stolen products online.

Leesa Manion is Chief of Staff for the King County Prosecutor's Office. Her office met with members of the Seattle City Attorney's office, the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, and the Downtown Seattle Association in late January to launch the effort.

Manion said her office is looking at combining multiple misdemeanor offenses into a single felony charge.

"We in the King County Attorney's Office may have the ability to aggregate those cases and file them as felonies," she said. "It is the idea of bringing together multiple acts, aggregating the value of the theft, aggregating the number of crimes, the number of thefts, and combining those into a felony filing."

Manion said their threshold for felony prosecution is $7,500 in stolen merchandise. Anything between $2,000-$7,500 gets filed as a misdemeanor that is charged as an expedited crime in district court.

This week, Seattle City Attorney Ann Davison also announced a new policy to promptly charge new misdemeanor crimes. She said her office will now make a filing decision within five days once criminal cases are referred to them from the Seattle Police Department.

Previously, the office put new cases at the back of the line, while addressing the thousands of cases that built up during the court closures of the pandemic. But Davison said that means victims and defendants could have to wait up to two years to get the case resolved. With this change, she said new cases will be charged more quickly.

"We must close the time gap between when a crime is committed - which is our opportunity to intervene with someone engaged with criminal activity - and shorten that time to when we decide what we are going to do in response," she said. kuow.org

Associate AG Vanita Gupta Delivers Remarks at Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA) Winter Conference | Washington, DC ~ Tuesday, February 8, 2022
This relationship is especially important today. Law enforcement faces unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, low officer morale, staffing shortages and a rise in violent crime. And the recent spate of killings of officers is simply gut-wrenching and unacceptable.

Last year, the department invested $4 billion in programs to reduce violent crime, strengthen communities, and enhance officer wellness. We hope that Congress will pass the President's budget which would give DOJ $7 billion - that would be an additional $2.5 billion over what we had this year - to do even more.

As the Attorney General just highlighted, reducing violent crime is a top priority for the department. justice.gov



Securing the Super Bowl in LA

Super Bowl LVI Security Operation
LAPD & LA County Sheriff's Department are leading the security effort along with federal partners, including 500 Homeland Security officials

Feds prepare 'extensive' Super Bowl security operations, no 'credible, specific' threats, coordinator says

Local law enforcement are leading the charge, but the FBI, Secret Service, Defense Department & DHS are helping secure the big game

The federal coordinator for security at Super Bowl LVI said Wednesday he's "cautiously optimistic and comfortable" about security plans leading up to the game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, in less than two weeks, noting that "extensive manpower" is being deployed to protect the stadium and public.

Security will be led by the local agencies, including the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, with federal partners such as the FBI, U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Fans attending the game can expect an enormous police presence at the stadium, which will have a tightly monitored security perimeter. Meanwhile patrol officers, tactical teams, canine units and paramedics will be been deployed across Los Angeles County.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said at least 500 members of his department are devoted to safety for the big game, including agents focused on ferreting out cyber threats and preventing human trafficking.

There are currently no known "credible, specific threats" to the Super Bowl, Jesse Baker said, but added that "you don't want to say that we've had a failure of imagination ... A perimeter can only go so far."

The Federal Aviation Administration has designated the Los Angeles area a 'No Drone Zone' for the Super Bowl, prohibiting drones within a 30-nautical-mile radius of the stadium up to 18,000 feet in altitude from 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. PST on February 13, 2022.

The Super Bowl is designated a "Special Event Assessment Rating Level 1", which means the local police department is in charge of security, but a federal security coordinator is appointed to provide support, manage federal assets and work with the local jurisdiction.

CBP helicopters and Defense Department fighter jets will be available to help protect the air space, Baker said. Cyber threats have also been examined ahead of the game. cnn.com  yourbasin.com lasvegassun.com

Homeland Security On Alert For Counterfeit Super Bowl Merch in Malls
Super Bowl fraud: How homeland Security targets counterfeit merchandise
With the Super Bowl LVI set to take place Sunday in Los Angeles, a major concern for visiting fans will be avoiding counterfeit game merchandise. From street corners and swap meets, to flea markets and even inside malls, Homeland Security Investigations has a targeted approach to stopping vendors that prey on unsuspecting fans in Super Bowl host cities.

"From the day after one Super Bowl, we start working on the next city. So, for this year, in L.A., we started this last year back in Tampa," said Lamar Jackson, the assistant special agent of L.A. Homeland Security.

Jackson said it may seem like a harmless crime, but lead investigators say the money acquired for a fake jersey, hat or T-shirt, is often used elsewhere for something more egregious.

"Whether its gangs using it to buy firearms, or terrorists using it to fund terrorist operations, the proceeds are often used to fund other crimes," Jackson said.

Just in the year leading up to last year's Super Bowl in Tampa, Homeland Security's "Operation Team Player" seized over $45 million in counterfeit NFL merchandise.

While there is no federally mandated minimum sentence for selling fake merch, trafficking counterfeit goods can land someone up to 10 years in prison for a first offense, and 20 years for a second.

They can't catch them all. Fans traveling to L.A. for the Super Bowl are advised to be vigilant and check merchandise for some sure-fire signs, starting with the 3D NFL logo hologram. Plus, don't be afraid to examine jerseys hands on or turn them inside out. wdtn.com

Omicron is Fading Quickly - But What Comes Next?
As Omicron recedes, Americans unsure on how to live with pandemic long-term

New Axios/Ipsos poll shows two-thirds do not believe it's possible for the U.S. to eradicate the coronavirus within the next year

With COVID-19 cases starting to decline across the nation, the American public is completely divided on how to handle the pandemic in the near term, according to the latest Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index.

As the country wrestles with how to move on (or not), one thing is clear: two in three Americans do not believe we will be able to eradicate the coronavirus in the next year.

In coming to grips with the fact that COVID isn't going away, seven in ten say they are likely to get an annual shot, if the COVID-19 vaccine becomes something that requires an annual booster (like a flu shot). ipsos.com

The End of Mask Mandates?
New York joins several other U.S. states in rolling back mask mandates

New York joins California, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, and Oregon in rolling back at least some mask mandates

Gov. Kathy Hochul will drop New York's stringent indoor mask mandate on Wednesday, ending a requirement that businesses ask customers for proof of full vaccination or require mask-wearing at all times, and marking a turning point in the state's coronavirus response, according to three people briefed on her decision.

The decision will eliminate a rule that prompted legal and interpersonal clashes over mask wearing, especially in conservative parts of New York. It was set to expire on Thursday and would have required renewing.

The easing of New York's pandemic restrictions on businesses comes as Democratic-led states from New Jersey to California have announced similar moves this week, in a loosely coordinated effort. The moves highlight how even local officials who installed sweeping safety measures early in the pandemic are now preparing to live permanently with the virus.

Shortly after the New Jersey announcement, the Democratic leaders in California, Connecticut, Delaware and Oregon separately said they would also end some mask mandates. nytimes.com

Illinois Expected to Roll Back Mask Mandate
Gov. JB Pritzker to announce Illinois mask mandate changes Wednesday

Chicago mask mandate update: If statewide requirement lifted, individual municipalities can impose own rules

Sources briefed on the matter said Gov. JB Pritzker will announce plans Wednesday to start rolling back the statewide indoor mask mandate at some locations.

The governor recently hinted at imminent changes, saying at a news conference, "We've been watching this very closely and are very close to making announcements, so you'll be hearing about that very shortly."

The source said the changes will impact malls, restaurants, bars and places of business, but not schools. Schools are governed by a separate mandate, and will be addressed separately.

"Because it's such a central focus of communities, and literally sometimes thousands of people are interacting in a school, we've got to be very careful about how we remove those mask mandates," Pritzker said previously.

A downstate judge's ruling against the school mandate and the governor's subsequent appeal have led to protests and confusion in districts across the state. The source said the mandate for those other locations will be lifted by March 1. abc7chicago.com

CDC Disagrees with Loosening Mask Policies
Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations still too high for changes to mask guidance, CDC director says
The head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is standing by the agency's mask guidelines, emphasizing Tuesday that now is not the time to change the recommendations or loosen restrictions aimed at preventing Covid-19.

The CDC "still recommends that all schools encourage students to wear well-fitting masks consistently and while indoors. And that's consistent with our guidance that still also recommends that people mask in public indoor settings in areas of high or substantial transmission," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a radio interview with WYPR's Tom Hall on Tuesday's edition of the show "Midday."

A growing number of states, from California to Delaware, have announced this week their intentions to drop indoor mask mandates in the coming days. Some others, like Connecticut and New Jersey, are eliminating mask mandates in schools. cnn.com

Post-Omicron Retail Boom Coming?
As COVID Fades, Signs Point To Late Feb-Early March Retail Foot Traffic Surge
A recent report from location intelligence researcher PlaceIQ forecasts a significant surge in retail foot traffic by the end of this month, while both COVID case counts and Google searches for "COVID" have fallen sharply, driving volumes have passed pre-pandemic levels and radio listening levels have recovered.

Omicron variant-driven cases, which took off just before Christmas, peaked in mid-January and have fallen 57% over the past two weeks in the U.S., according to the New York Times. At the same time, COVID searches based on Google Trends data have followed suit.

"Right at the end of December, the search volume for the word 'COVID' was higher than at any period over the past two years, but in the past two weeks there's been a sharp drop-off," Bouvard says, citing search volumes down from mid-January's 83 index to early February's 32.

As a result, PlaceIQ's prediction is for in-store activity to increase by late February or early March, starting with casual restaurants and shopping malls, those being most reactive to changes in foot traffic.

"In the short term, we're looking at a uniformly tired population who is likely ready to bolt out the door once the all-clear is sounded for this wave, just like last year," its report says. "We strongly suggest you make preparations to capture and ride this wave of enthusiasm." insideradio.com

Identity Thieve Hits Twice - Hired as Director of Accounting & Then Comptroller & Pays $2.4M to His Shell Companies
Talk about the Double Insider Threat - I9 Forms? Ban-the-Box Stings - Background Screening?

Danville ILL., Man Gets 8.5 Yrs. Prison for Fraud, Aggravated Identity Theft, & Money Laundering in Two Different Jurisdictions
Jeffery T. Henson (also known by the alias, Matthew Burns), 44, obtained high-paying jobs by using stolen identities to avoid his prospective employers learning of his long criminal history involving multiple prior convictions for theft and computer fraud. In addition to the sentence of imprisonment, Judge Bruce ordered Henson to pay restitution of $436,496 to a Danville employer and $2,047,424 to a Chicago-area employer.

Henson pretended to be an online job recruiter to obtain the personal identifying information of a job seeker. He then used the stolen personal information to obtain a job in that person's name as the Director of Accounting at a Schaumburg, Illinois, consulting firm. Once employed, Henson set up fraudulent companies with names similar to legitimate vendors of the consulting firm and used his position to forge company checks and direct them to his fraudulently created companies. Henson defrauded the firm of over $2 million before he fled the Chicago area and moved to Danville in 2018.

In Danville he did the same scheme and was hired as Comptroller of Watchfire Signs and defrauded them for over $400,000. justice.gov

Retail's War for Workers
Apple Ups Benefits for Retail Workers in Tightening Labor Market
Apple Inc. plans to significantly increase its benefits for U.S. retail store workers as it grapples with a tightening labor market and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The company, which operates around 270 stores in the U.S., is making changes for both full-time and part-time employees, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the move hasn't been announced publicly.

The iPhone maker plans to adopt the following changes for U.S. workers beginning on April 4:

Doubling paid sick days for both full-time and part-time workers. The days can be used for mental health leave and taking family members to the doctor. This change will give full-time workers 12 paid sick days, instead of six.

Workers will receive more annual vacation days, beginning at three years of employment instead of five.

Part-time employees will now get as many as six paid vacation days for the first time. Another first: They'll get paid parental leave. That benefit will cover up to six weeks and will include the ability to gradually ramp up work time for the first four weeks back.

Part-time workers also will get access to discounted emergency backup care for children or elderly family members.

An Apple spokesman confirmed the changes, saying they were in development for several months. bloomberg.com
Union Busting at Starbucks?
Starbucks fires 7 involved in Memphis union push
Starbucks fired seven workers who were involved in unionizing in Memphis, Tennessee, fueling accusations that the company is retaliating against a growing labor movement at its locations across the United States.

Starbucks denied that the firings were linked to the employees' organizing efforts. A company spokesman, Reggie Borges, said the workers were fired for serious security violations. The firings stem from an incident last month in which the employees allowed members of the media into the store as part of the public launch of their unionization effort.

Borges told CNN Business that Starbucks employees are allowed to speak freely with media if they choose, but that the members of the press and some of the staff did not have authorization to be in the store after the close of business. The employees allowed the media into the private back-of-house area while leaving an unlocked door unattended, Borges said. Another staffer opened a safe when they weren't authorized to do so. dailynews.com

DOJ's Largest-Ever Financial Seizure
Two Arrested for Alleged Conspiracy to Launder $4.5 Billion in Stolen Cryptocurrency

Government Seized $3.6 Billion in Stolen Cryptocurrency Directly Linked to 2016 Hack of Virtual Currency Exchange

Two individuals were arrested this morning in Manhattan for an alleged conspiracy to launder cryptocurrency that was stolen during the 2016 hack of Bitfinex, a virtual currency exchange, presently valued at approximately $4.5 billion. Thus far, law enforcement has seized over $3.6 billion in cryptocurrency linked to that hack.

The value of the cryptocurrency at the time it was seized last week marks the largest financial seizure ever by the Justice Department, officials said. Ilya Lichtenstein, 34 years old, and his wife, Heather Morgan, 31, were both arrested without incident Tuesday morning in Manhattan, the department said.

"Today's arrests, and the department's largest financial seizure ever, show that cryptocurrency is not a safe haven for criminals," said Deputy Attorney General Lisa O. Monaco. "In a futile effort to maintain digital anonymity, the defendants laundered stolen funds through a labyrinth of cryptocurrency transactions. Thanks to the meticulous work of law enforcement, the department once again showed how it can and will follow the money, no matter what form it takes."

According to court documents, the suspects allegedly conspired to launder nearly 120,000 bitcoin stolen from Bitfinex's platform in 2016 after a hacker breached the exchange's systems and initiated more than 2,000 unauthorized transactions. The transactions funneled the stolen bitcoin to a digital wallet being controlled by Mr. Lichtenstein, federal prosecutors said.

Mr. Lichtenstein and Ms. Morgan face charges relating to conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to defraud the U.S. They weren't charged with carrying out the hack of Bitfinex. The Justice Department's investigation is ongoing, officials said. justice.gov wsj.com washingtonpost.com

FBI Cybersecurity Warning
FBI, cybersecurity experts warn about QR code privacy and security concerns

"They could install malware in our devices or add contacts to our contact lists. They could send emails."

QR codes seem to be everywhere. They're used for marketing and advertisements, tracking shipping labels and, since the start of the pandemic, to access menus at restaurants.
The difference is, QR codes can contain much more data than a bar code. Because human eyes cannot distinguish the difference between individual QR codes, some cybercriminals have been using malicious codes to steal users' personal data and even financial information.

The FBI issued a warning in January about cybercriminals installing malicious links over legitimate QR codes like on menus. Hackers simply make their own QR code and delicately place it on top of legitimate codes, with most users unable to spot any maleficence.

"It's very easy," she said. "If you Google 'QR code' and just click the first link 'how to build,' it's going to ask 'what is the information you want to put in your QR code' and that's it."

She says some hackers may prey on our curiosity and post plain codes without any accompanying description in public, hoping we will scan them to find out more. wxii12.com

Imminent Russian Cyberattack on the U.S.?
'Be on high alert' for Russian cybersecurity attacks, expert says
As the world keeps a close eye on a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine, cybersecurity experts are warning an attack closer to home can cripple technology in the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin to law enforcement agencies last week, warning a Russian cyber attack could happen in response to U.S. or NATO actions if Russia were to invade Ukraine.

"Russia certainly has the cyber warfare capabilities, and they've shown it time and time again over the past 15 years," said attorney and cybersecurity expert Leeza Garber to The National Desk's Jan Jeffcoat. "We see the effects in Ukraine right now. Russia has already been behind certain cyberattacks that have caused defacement on public websites. And then government agencies have already seen malware infiltrated that has likely come from Russia."

Garber said cyberattacks on Ukraine can "ripple out into the United States as well."

"We need to be on high alert for what these kinds of attacks look like. And it's not just cyberattacks, but it's also disinformation campaigns. That's something that Russia has used in its toolbox for many years," said Garber.

The DHS recently announced the creation of a cyber safety review board as a means to improve cybersecurity across the country. local12.com

COVID Update

Trucker-COVID Protests -  Deploying 1,800 Officers - Retail Impact

Ottawa Declares 'State of Emergency'
Canada truckers continue protest of COVID restrictions
The mayor of Canada's capital, Ottawa, has declared a state of emergency in response to more than a week of truckers' protests against Covid restrictions.

Jim Watson said the city was "losing this battle" and "completely out of control". He added the protests posed a threat to residents' safety. There have also been reports of racial attacks. Ottawa's centre has been paralysed, with vehicles and tents blocking roads.

The "Freedom Convoy" was sparked by the introduction last month of a new rule that all truckers must be vaccinated to cross the US-Canada border, but the protests have morphed into broader challenges to Covid health restrictions.

The protesters have since gathered in central Ottawa near Parliament Hill, and their demands have grown to include ending all such mandates nationwide and opposing the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Speaking to Canadian radio station CFRA, Mr Watson said the protesters were behaving increasingly "insensitively" by continuously "blaring horns and sirens, [setting off] fireworks and turning it into a party".

The mayor did not give specific details about what measures he might impose, but police said on Sunday that they would step up enforcement, including possible arrests of those seeking to aid the protesters by bringing them supplies like fuel, toilet paper and food.

A state of emergency will give the city additional powers, including access to equipment required by frontline workers and emergency services. bbc.com

Ottawa Bringing in 1,800 More Police Officers
Ending Protest Requires More Police, Ottawa Chief Says

Protesters & trucks remained entrenched in Downtown Ottawa throughout Monday.

Ottawa's police chief told the City Council on Monday afternoon that it will take 1,800 more police officers to end a protest by truckers that has paralyzed the city's downtown for 11 days, leading to the mayor's declaring a state of emergency.

The demonstrations, during which some protesters have desecrated national memorials and threatened local residents, have shaken a country known globally as a model for humanism and serenity.

Thousands turned out to protest in Toronto and Quebec City over the weekend. Truck convoys congregated near provincial legislatures in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia. Downtown Ottawa, site of the country's Parliament, remained paralyzed on Monday as truckers parked their vehicles across busy thoroughfares.

"Someone is going to get killed or seriously injured because of the irresponsible behavior of some of these people," Jim Watson, Ottawa's mayor, warned on Sunday. City officials and the chief of police said they were under "siege."

The entire Ottawa police force numbers only 1,200 but has been supplemented with several hundred officers from the Ontario Provincial Police, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and local police forces elsewhere in Ontario over the past week. It is unclear where the large additional numbers of police officers that Chief Sloly said the city needed would come from. nytimes.com

Retail Impact of Trucker Protest
Worries build over economic impact of Alberta border blockade

'We need that blockade to end and we need to get back to business,' says manufacturing spokesperson

Alberta retailers and manufacturers are growing increasingly frustrated with protestors blocking an essential border crossing into the United States, warning that it's interrupting critical supply chains affecting both groceries and equipment.

"We're extremely frustrated," said John Graham, director of government relations for the Retail Council of Canada, which represents many grocery stores across the province.

The comments came as the truck blockade entered its fifth day at Coutts, Alta. The demonstration is tied to an ongoing, nationwide protest over federal rules for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated truckers entering Canada from the United States. The rules took effect Jan. 15.

The border checkpoint is the primary conduit for the approximately $6 billion in trade between Alberta and the U.S. The protest has halted all traffic at this point of Highway 4 since Saturday.

Graham said retailers are beginning to see gaps on shelves, in particular perishable items that grocery stores expect to be delivered daily to keep things as fresh as possible, traveling significant distances from southern United States.

He said the blockade of the border crossing at Coutts won't have an impact only on Alberta retailers but will ripple out across other Prairie provinces as well. Graham said it was too early to put a dollar figure on the impact. cbc.ca

Canada's Theft Surge
Supermarket theft rising, shoplifters more aggressive, warns grocery industry

Experts say thefts have become more brazen in recent months, reasons unclear

Shoplifting appears to be on the rise at grocery stores in Canada as a growing number of supermarkets report an increase in thefts of food and pharmacy products. Industry experts say meat is the No. 1 stolen item followed by cheese and over-the-counter medicine. Liquor stores are also reporting an increase in theft since the onset of the pandemic.

It's unclear whether the uptick in shoplifting is due to escalating inflation and food insecurity, a growing resale market for stolen goods or other factors. But experts say thefts have become more brazen in recent months and customers wearing face masks make it more difficult to identify people.

Sgt. Steve Addison with the Vancouver Police Department said shoplifting is a vastly under-reported crime. Addison added that the situation has less to do with the pandemic and more to do with people stealing products to sell in the illicit market.

Retail Council of Canada spokesperson Michelle Wasylyshen said theft impacts retailers in multiple ways with the biggest being the loss of inventory. One of the few ways retailers can recover a portion of that loss is through increased prices, she said.

Retailers also hire security guards and turn to solutions such as locked showcases and other security measures to deter people from stealing. But those measures come with added costs retailers recoup must usually through higher prices, Wasylyshen said.

The Liquor Control Board of Ontario said in a statement it has seen an increase in theft and attempted theft of liquor since the start of the pandemic. The LCBO said it has increased the presence of security guards in many locations, while employees receive regular training on theft detection, deterrence and reporting. wltribune.com

'Banner Year' for Canadian Retail?
Several International Brands Open 1st Canadian Stores in January 2022
This year is already starting off strong with five international brands opening first-to-Canada stores in January of 2022, and more on the way. Brokers are saying that this could be a banner year as retail becomes more global and Canadian cities are a target.

It's encouraging news and shows confidence in the market as brands look to major cities to enter the Canadian market. We recently tallied a total of 21 international brands that entered Canada in 2021 by opening stores, including a breakdown of launch cities where Toronto was the primary focal point last year.

In January of this year, several international brands have opened first-to-Canada stores.

Brokers are telling Retail Insider that several more international brands are already confirmed to be entering the Canadian market by opening storefronts. We'll reveal these throughout the year as we continue to report on the industry.

It's an encouraging sign for the retail industry which was clobbered by the pandemic. Consumer confidence is coming back and some retailers, including luxury brands, are in some cases seeing higher sales now than in 2019.

Already, we know that retailers such as Lafayette 148, Anne Fontaine and Paris Baguette will all be opening first-to-Canada locations on Bloor Street West in Toronto. We'll be discussing other brands such as Acne Studios and Diptique which among others will open first stores this year as well. Retail Insider will be tallying international retailers entering the Canadian market in the coming months as well as other retailers opening and expanding in this country.  retail-insider.com

'Distraction Shootings' Across Toronto
Robbers staged public shootings to distract from Toronto-area jewelry store heists
A rash of robberies where thieves used tow trucks to smash into the front of Toronto-area jewelry stores also included another frightening tactic -- staging a shooting across a city to draw away police, according to court testimony.

The idea of the so-called "distraction shootings" is to send police on a high-priority goose chase to buy time for the robbers to get away with the necklaces, rings and gems -- robberies that played out in video shown in an Ontario superior courtroom.

And unfortunately, it works in the short term, says a former Toronto police detective. But in the long term, it can attract the kind of attention that leads to wiretaps and covert operations by police -- one of the factors that led to arrests in the multi-jurisdictional Project Kraken.

"If every uniformed officer in that division is congregating to that first call for service, there are precious minutes that are involved that allows these people to commit these crimes, and buys them three or four minutes before the police can get to the second call," said former detective Mark Mendelson.

"The plan was violent and brazen," said Crown lawyer Mike Passeri in court. "Both robberies were sophisticated and carefully planned with many assigned roles." toronto.ctvnews.ca

$120K Store Burglary

Edmonton, AB: Five thieves sought after optical store break-in steals $120K worth of glasses
Police identified five thieves after a break-in at an Oliver optometrist clinic who stole more than 400 pairs of sun and prescription glasses worth around $120,000. In a media release sent Friday, the Edmonton Police Service said it needed the public's help in identifying the five males involved in the robbery on Oct. 15, 2021.

Around 5:30 a.m., one of the men smashed one of the windows at the back of the clinic, near 123 Street and Jasper Avenue, and another crawled in. That man took two cases of glasses from inside the store and loaded them into two stolen vehicles, police said.

According to EPS, officers have recovered one of the stolen vehicles, a Nissan Altima. "Police are releasing video and several CCTV images in the hopes that someone may recognize these suspects and/or vehicles," police said in a statement. edmonton.ctvnews.ca

Amazon Hoping to Attract Top Industry Talent with $$$
Amazon hiking base salary cap to $350,000 for corporate, tech workers

The online retail giant is seeking to attract and retain top talent with the move

Amazon is giving a hefty boost to the maximum base pay of its corporate and tech workers, more than doubling the salary cap from $160,000 to $350,000 as part of a plan to increase its competitiveness in the tight labor market.

In an internal blog post obtained by FOX Business, the e-commerce behemoth announced the move to employees, noting that the company would be hiking pay "for most jobs globally" and that the increases are "much more considerable" than in the past.

"This past year has seen a particularly competitive labor market, and in doing a thorough analysis of various options, weighing the economics of our business and the need to remain competitive for attracting and retaining top talent, we decided to make meaningfully bigger increases to our compensation levels than we do in a typical year," the post reads.

According to GeekWire, which first reported on the memo, the base salary increase will "bring Amazon's base pay more in line with other big tech companies, including Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft."

Amazon's move for corporate employees is the latest in a series of efforts to draw in and keep workers since CEO Andy Jassy took over last July. In September, the company announced that it would offer free college tuition for more than 750,000 hourly employees, and in November, Amazon launched a tool allowing military spouses employed by the company to transfer positions at the company when they move on military orders. foxbusiness.com

Poaching Talent from Amazon & Other E-Commerce Giants
Elevate Brands poached talent from Amazon, Wayfair, and eBay with help from its $327 million war chest

This is part of a trend of e-commerce executives jumping from major retailers to aggregators.

Gurevitch said the aggregator model is the natural evolution of what Amazon itself does. At Amazon, he said his focus was on identifying successful brands and helping them scale, and that the aggregator model, wherein businesses invest heavily into product development and brand visibility in order to continue to add value, is "what I wanted to see."

With more than $327 million in funding, according to Crunchbase, Elevate Brands said it acquired 30 e-commerce and direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands in 2021. The company has staffed up dramatically to service this growth, reporting it expanded its team by 500% last year.

Additional hires announced along with Gurevitch and Sipling included the newly-minted Head of Performance Marketing Craig Wineberg, who came to the company from eBay, and Stephanie Brace, the new director of DTC, whose previous post was at Wayfair. businessinsider.com

Chicago, IL: Alleged 'ringleader' in high-end smash & grabs, retail thefts arrested
The alleged "ringleader" of at least two high-end smash-and-grabs and several retail thefts in Chicago was arrested Monday evening. Tacarre Harper, 27, of Maywood, is facing charges related to smash-and-grabs from November through January. Police believe Harper organized two heists at a Burberry store on North Michigan Avenue. In those heists, Harper and his crew are suspected of stealing an estimated $150,000 worth of merchandise. In total, police believe Harper and his crew stole an additional $25,000 in robberies at convenience stores and retail locations on the North and Northwest sides of Chicago. Harper was arrested Monday by US Marshals and Chicago Police. "We are not going to let these people get away with these crimes," Supt. David Brown said. "Chicago is not a lawless city." In a press conference with Cook County State's Attorney, Supt. Brown said he expects more charges in the case and that authorities are targeting the rest of Harper's alleged crew. Police believe Harper and his crews organized the following retail thefts, in addition to the Burberry heists. 6100 block of W. Diversey - Nov. 26, 1500 block of N. Cicero - Nov. 26, 2000 block of W. Division - Nov. 26, 3900 block of W. Diversey - Dec. 8, 4900 block of W. Fullerton - Dec. 28, 2900 block of N. Broadway - Jan. 6, 400 block of W. Belmont - Jan. 6. pahomepage.com

Merced, CA: Group of 10 to 15 run off with stolen jewelry following smash-and-grab at Merced Mall
Smash-and-grab crimes where mobs of people show up to pillage stores have been plaguing the state and even the nation in recent months. Now, that trend has reached the North Valley. Merced Police say around 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, 10-15 people showed up at the mall with their own sledgehammers already in hand. Video shows onlookers shopping in stores nearby as the thieves boldly go on about their business, taking whatever they can from Prestigio Jewelers at the Merced Mall. Police say they don't think the robbers are from the area, and they don't expect them to come back. They said it's an isolated incident, and there's no reason to be scared to come to the Merced Mall. kmph.com

California: Moment thief leisurely walks out of Ross with a shopping cart full of merchandise
A brazen thief stole hundreds of dollars worth of clothing from a discount store in California before elegantly hauling the goods away in a trash bag. A thief in California casually strolled out of a Ross store pushing a cart overflowing with goodies Saturday night, according to a video posted on Instagram by Gautam Chitnis, who claims it was shot by a store employee. It is unclear where the incident was filmed. In the video, the man, dressed in a brown jacket and pants, and a blue surgical mask, takes only a quick glance behind him before confidently strolling out the sliding doors. A pole on the cart - which is there to prevent cart theft - catches on the door, but that doesn't stop the thief who tugs vigorously until the pole breaks. The cart begins tipping sideways but, unbothered by the obstacles, the thief manages to grab a trash bag from a nearby garbage, and shove the clothes and shoes into it. In the meantime, customers are seen entering and exiting the store without sparing him a second glance. When he tries to lift the bulging bag, shoes tumble out - and he resorts to Plan B: taking the whole garbage can with him. He shoves everything into the bin and drags it through the parking lot.  dailymail.co.uk

Manteca, CA: Retail crime crack down yields 6 pounds of processed cannabis
The Manteca Police Department keeps chipping away at organized retail theft in the city after they took down a duo last week that was suspected of multiple thefts from other stores in the area. Daniel Gonzales, 31, and Jason Thompson, 46, were arrested last week after they attempted to steal $651 worth of items from the Manteca Kohl's store - a haul that included clothing, sunglasses, and electronics. The Manteca Police Department was contacted by Kohl's Loss Prevention team that recognized the pair from other similar crimes that occurred in Lodi. When Officer Sal Montero and Detective Dave Brown responded, they located Gonzales and Thompson as they were attempting to leave the area. mantecabulletin.com
