Protests & Violence

More LAPD Misconduct?
'It stood out to me as egregious': Protesters, others allege LAPD violence
at Echo Park homeless camp sweep
Despite months of criticism and a growing number of lawsuits over the LAPD's use of such force during last summer's George Floyd protests (reported in the Daily on March 12) and last fall's unruly Lakers and Dodgers championship celebrations - which left protesters and revelers bloodied, with ruptured testicles and an "exploded" eye - officers are again being criticized for their use of those weapons last week, this time as they responded to protests over the removal of a homeless encampment around Echo Park Lake.

Officers were again captured on video using the weapons in ways that appeared to violate the department's policies, which bar officers from shooting people who don't represent a physical threat and from shooting into crowds, shooting people at close range and shooting people merely for ignoring verbal commands.

The department has largely defended its actions, alleging that officers had sought to facilitate the protests until they became unruly and decisions were made to issue dispersal orders and arrest those who didn't comply. It said officers fired just a couple of projectile rounds the first night and 10 the second, including three 37-millimeter hard foam rounds, one 40-millimeter hard foam round and six beanbag rounds, all "in response to projectiles thrown at officers."

LAPD Chief Michel Moore also defended the department's response, saying the dispersal orders were issued only after officers faced violence and, on the second night, the use of strobe lights to blind them. He said such actions by protesters should be condemned, including by elected officials.

Moore also said the LAPD is committed to investigating any use of force that caused serious injuries or sparked a complaint, and will hold officers accountable if they broke policy. He said 11 complaints were already under review, including two pertaining to the detention of reporters and one pertaining to protester Isaac Scher's allegation that an officer broke his arm. latimes.com

Federal Arson Charges - Up to 20 Years in Prison
Tampa man pleads guilty to setting Champs store blaze during 2020 riots

The burning of a Champs Sports store occurred during riots last May in Tampa.

The man prosecutors say was responsible for one of the most stunning criminal acts to occur amid a night of rioting last May in Tampa pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal arson charge. Terrance Lee Hester Jr. appeared Tuesday morning in a Tampa federal courtroom and quietly admitted he started a fire at the Champs Sports store at 2381 E Fowler Ave. Damage from the blaze totaled $1.2 million.

Hester's guilty plea came with no guarantees about sentencing. The charge carries a minimum of five and a maximum of 20 years in prison.

Most memorable were the widespread riots of May 30 and 31. That evening, people hurled objects at police officers and sheriff's deputies, and broke into and stole from businesses. A Mobil station on Busch Boulevard burned. So did the Champs store and its neighboring businesses.

Tampa police obtained video which appeared to show a shirtless man tossing a flaming white cloth through a broken window. The same man was seen about 20 minutes later carrying a burning palm frond toward the store's open back door, according to court records. The building became engulfed in flames. tampabay.com

Derek Chauvin Trial
Off-duty EMT tried to help Floyd but "officers didn't let me into the scene"
An off-duty Minneapolis firefighter and certified EMT testified Tuesday that she was "desperate" to help George Floyd but "the officers didn't let me into the scene." Genevieve Hansen, who witnessed former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneel on Floyd's neck last May, was among the first witnesses to testify in the trial of Chauvin, who faces murder and manslaughter charges.

After she identified herself, Hansen said Thao said "something along the lines of, 'If you really are a Minneapolis firefighter, you would know better than to get involved.'"

If the officers had allowed her, Hansen said she would have requested additional medical assistance, asked someone to look for a defibrillator, checked Floyd for a pulse and would have started compressions to restore blood flow if she did not find one. But she said she was not able to do that "because the officers didn't let me in to the scene."

Hansen said she repeatedly begged officers, including Chauvin, to check Floyd's pulse to see if he needed CPR after she noticed that Floyd had "an altered level of consciousness." axios.com

Walmart Must Give Security, Crime Data to Mass Shooting Victims
Walmart Inc. failed to convince a Texas appeals court that a judge exceeded his authority when he ordered the retailer to turn over a a slew of discovery-related documents in a civil action brought against it by victims, or their families, of a mass shooting in El Paso in 2019.

Included among the allegations is that Walmart rates its stores based on their crime potential yet allocates resources disproportionately toward its outlets in more affluent, less crime-prone areas.

As part of that case, the lower court ordered Walmart to disclose numerous documents including those related to an incident in Amarillo where two Walmart employees were taken hostage in 2016, third-party security reports, and store security budgets in El Paso and San Antonio, among other topics.

A civil suit was filed in state court, alleging the retailer should be held liable for negligence including in failing to secure its premises in light of other shootings and crimes. news.bloomberglaw.com

Memorial Service for Officer Killed in Grocery Store Shooting
'His heart was so big:' Boulder Officer Eric Talley honored in memorial service
A public funeral was held Tuesday for Eric Talley, the Boulder Police officer who was killed in the March 22 mass shooting at a King Soopers. A miles-long procession involving hundreds of law enforcement vehicles honored Talley ahead of the memorial service.

Talley was one of the 10 people killed in the shooting at the King Soopers off South Table Mesa Drive. The ones closest to Talley remembered him as a loving husband, father, friend and officer who was full of compassion and kindness.

Herold credited Talley's bravery and quick action with saving dozens of innocent lives inside the King Soopers store.  9news.com

Who Is Eligible for Vaccines in Each State

Cases Continue to Climb - But Vaccines Could Limit Death Toll
U.S. Covid cases are on the rise as vaccination pace picks up amid expanded eligibility guidelines
The United States' Covid-19 cases are trending upward again, with nationwide infection levels far below January's peak of about 250,000 new cases per day but approaching numbers seen during the summer surge when average daily case counts reached nearly 70,000.

In an effort to speed up the vaccination campaign, many states are expanding eligibility guidelines for who qualifies to get a shot.

About 66,800 daily new coronavirus cases are being reported in the U.S., based on a seven-day average of data from Johns Hopkins University. That figure has been trending upward, raising concerns about a potential "fourth wave" of infections.

The daily death toll has fallen significantly from its winter peak but remains elevated at nearly 1,000 deaths per day, based on a weekly average of Hopkins data.

The vaccine rollout may be a reason for optimism on this front. If the most vulnerable populations of Americans are protected, the death toll may not rise as significantly as it has during prior periods of case count increases. cnbc.com

Retail America Continues to Step Up
Meijer expands COVID-19 vaccinations to all 256 stores

Additional vaccine sites come with expansion of Federal Retail Pharmacy Program

Supercenter retailer Meijer can now provide COVID-19 vaccines at all of its 256 stores in its six-state Midwestern trade area.

Meijer said Monday that it has become a national partner in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID-19 Vaccination in Wisconsin, Illinois and Kentucky. In February, when President Joe Biden announced the program - which distributes coronavirus immunizations directly to pharmacies - Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Meijer was a partner only in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.

With the expansion, Meijer said it will be able to administer 150,000 doses this week through clinics held at each of its stores and at off-site clinics. This week alone, the retailer will conduct more than 950 clinics - large and small scale - at its stores, in addition to supporting FEMA in mass vaccination clinics at Ford Field in Detroit and at numerous off-site clinics with other partners, the company reported.

"Our stores and pharmacies continue playing an integral role in supporting their communities across the Midwest during this challenging time," Meijer President and CEO Rick Keyes said in a statement. "Whether our team members and pharmacists are working with local organizations, coordinating off-site events or hosting large in-store clinics, we're proud to continue our efforts as a federal retail pharmacy partner in the states of Wisconsin, Illinois and Kentucky as we expand access to these critical vaccines and defeat this pandemic." supermarketnews.com

Stores Grapple with Vaccination Process
COVID shot scheduling complicates drugstore operations
While millions of coronavirus vaccine doses are available, it could be months until anyone can just walk into their local pharmacy for a dose, a frustrating situation for big chains like Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. and CVS Health Corp., as well as their customers.

People still need to make appointments online or over the phone to get vaccinated at drugstores, a policy designed to prevent crowds from forming and help pharmacists manage scarce supplies. The system isn't working optimally and is unlikely to change anytime soon, said Rina Shah, Walgreens vice president of pharmacy operations.

That could hold back sales for drugstores that rely on back-of-the-store pharmacy purchases to drive front-of-store sales of higher-margin items, like beauty products. Masking and social-distancing measures have already hurt the market for cold and flu products, and shots would be another way to get customers in the door. detroitnews.com

61% Have Received 1st Dose or Plan To
Confidence in Covid-19 vaccination keeps rising significantly in the U.S., but pockets of resistance remain, a survey shows.
As eligibility for Covid-19 vaccination rapidly expands to all adults in many states over the next month, a new poll shows a continuing increase in the number of Americans, particularly Black adults, who want to get vaccinated. But it also found that vaccine skepticism remains stubbornly persistent, particularly among Republicans and white evangelical Christians, an issue that the Biden administration has flagged as an impediment to achieving herd immunity and a return to normal life.

By now, roughly 61 percent of adults have either received their first dose or are eager for one, up from 47 percent in January, according to the latest monthly survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Despite the progress, one in five adults (20 percent) said they would either definitely refuse the shot or be vaccinated only if required by their job or school. nytimes.com

Unintended Consequences of Remote Work in the COVID Era
Remote Work Is Leading To More Gender And Racial Harassment
Tech workers say they have experienced more harassment based on gender, age and race or ethnicity while working remotely during the pandemic, according to a survey from a nonprofit group that advocates for diversity in Silicon Valley.

The increases were highest among women, transgender and nonbinary people, and Asian, Black, Latinx and Indigenous people.

For example, more than 1 in 4 respondents said they experienced more gender-based harassment. That figure increased, when race and gender identity were accounted for, to 39% of Asian woman and nonbinary people; 38% of Latinx woman and nonbinary people; and 42% of transgender people.

"There's the assumption that once everybody went separately and you were protected in your own home, that you wouldn't see the same level of harassment," she said. "It turned out that actually wasn't the case."

Workers surveyed also reported increases in workplace hostility, defined as behavior that is less abusive than harassment and may not break company rules, but still creates a harmful environment. npr.org

Post-Vaccine Workplace Takes Shape
The hybrid office is here to stay. The shift could be more disruptive
than the move to all-remote work.

Citigroup, Ford, TIAA, Target: A growing number of bellwether companies are outlining their hybrid return-to-work plans

The post-vaccine workplace is taking shape, and for many it's going to be a hybrid model, allowing more remote work but with clear expectations that some days a week will be in the office.

Workforce experts are bracing for a whole new set of post-pandemic upheavals, in some instances more transformative than the unplanned move to working from home last March, with some making efforts to avoid pre-pandemic remote-work mistakes.

"In a lot of ways it's going to be more disruptive than when we went all remote," said Brian Kropp, vice president of research at Gartner.

New videoconferencing technology will be added to help in-person and remote workers feel as if they're on a level playing field. Managers will undergo extensive training to fight against the instinct to give workers in the office preferential treatment. Logistics will be coordinated to ensure those who go into the office don't get there and find the building empty, perhaps by setting core hours or days for on-site work. washingtonpost.com

Home Depot Fighting ORC with New Technology
Home Depot testing technology to combat organized retail theft as state, federal lawmakers propose laws

The National Retail Federation reports 31 percent of retailers surveyed spotted a significant increase of organized retail crime in 2020.

To combat such organized retail theft some power tools at Home Depot are kept on locked shelves, some are wrapped with security devices around the boxes, and security cameras keep watch on the aisles.

Those tactics, though, haven't stopped organized theft.

"We are working on a very strong strategy to, what we like to refer to as harden the target against these types of folks," explained Scott Glenn, The Home Depot's vice president of asset protection.

An evolving anti-theft strategy the company is now using, Glenn described, is a chip being inserted into power tools from DeWalt and Milwaukee brand tools.  Similar to how gift cards need to be scanned and paid for at a store to activate, the power tools need to be paid for, and then - using Bluetooth technology - the tool is activated.

Tools that haven't been activated won't turn on, according to The Home Depot.

Staff recently showed 11Alive the process of activation, and it only added a few seconds to a typical transaction. The technology is currently part of a pilot program in select Atlanta area stores and in other Home Depot markets.

Glenn added that often power tools stolen from The Home Depot end up in a few different places. One such place is pawn shops. Another place the power tools can end up is online marketplaces - from eBay to Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and a growing list of others.

Currently, lawmakers in Washington D.C. and at the Georgia State Capitol are considering legislation to target high-volume sellers of stolen retail items.

The INFORM Consumers Act introduced this month in the U.S. Senate aims to "prevent organized retail crime rings from stealing items from stores to resell those items in bulk online," according to a release from Republican U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. 11alive.com

The Fifth Avenue Battleground
Manhattan's Fifth Avenue Mired in $200 Million Retail Rent Fight
Not long ago, major fashion brands were willing to pay ballooning rents just to have a store on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. Now the world-famous shopping strip has transformed into a battleground between landlords and tenants seeking a way out of pricey leases.

It's a side effect of the pandemic that's plagued New York for more than a year. The foreign tourists who were Fifth Avenue's lifeblood before the lockdown are gone. So, for the most part, are the office workers who might have stopped at a store while hustling by. Boarded-up spaces and "For Rent" signs are multiplying.

The few merchants looking to sign new leases are demanding deep discounts. Some that have been there all along -- such as the National Basketball Association, Valentino and Marc Fisher -- are embroiled in legal battles with their landlords over unpaid rent.

Along a roughly 20-block stretch of Fifth Avenue, the handful of landlords involved in legal disputes are owed about $200 million. If those tenants walk away, it would mean more vacancies on a corridor that was starting to struggle even before the pandemic.

"The numbers are big," said Tom Mullaney, a managing director at brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. "If some of the tenants are financially stressed and they lose, it'll be very painful. Conversely, if some of the landlords are overleveraged and have cash flow issues, it can be traumatic for them too."

The outcome of these dragged out disputes may have a lingering impact on Fifth Avenue. The corridor is typically a prized and pricey spot to locate a shop alongside the longtime homes of famed luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman, jeweler Tiffany & Co. and the Plaza Hotel. The economic fallout from the pandemic has made that arithmetic more complicated. bloomberg.com

H&M Wiped Off the Map in China - Literally
H&M was wiped from the internet in China, sending a chilling warning
to other retailers
H&M's online presence has all but disappeared in China amid a widespread boycott of the Swedish retailer after the recirculation of comments about forced labor made by the company last year.

The company's items were scrubbed from Alibaba, the e-commerce behemoth founded by Jack Ma, and JD.com, one of China's largest online retailers, according to The Associated Press. China's Google Maps-like Baidu Maps platform, as well as Alibaba's map service, also removed the locations of H&M's 500 Chinese stores. Those stores weren't appearing in the Chinese ride-hailing app Didi Chuxing either, according to the report, and the H&M app was also absent from app stores.

The disappearance of H&M's online presence represents the power that China can wield over foreign retailers as Chinese companies and consumers boycott the brand and others that are criticizing the government. H&M counts China as its fourth-largest market, according to Reuters, and many in China have taken issue the retailer's comments.

H&M isn't the only international brand to receive backlash for taking such a public stance against Xinjiang-sourced cotton. At least 11 US and European brands, including Burberry, Nike, and Adidas, are also facing fallout. Tencent said it was scrubbing costumes designed by Burberry that were worn by characters in a popular online game, according to the AP. businessinsider.com

Activists pressure Atlanta-based companies like Coca-Cola and Delta to take action against Georgia voting law

"#BoycottDelta" and "#BoycottCocaCola" were each used in tens of thousands of tweets since March 23, The Atlanta-Journal-Constitution reported. "Do not fly Delta. Do not spend money with Delta. Boycott Delta. Ruin Delta," commentator Keith Olbermann tweeted. businessinsider.com

Invest in Cybersecurity Threat Detection
Security on a Shoestring? More Budget Means More Detection

Companies that spend the smallest share of their IT budget on security see fewer threats, but that's not good news.

Ignorance may be bliss, but not in security.

Companies that spend less on security - as a percentage of their information technology budget - saw fewer threats in the previous year, but mainly because reduced visibility and their lack of expertise failed to find existing threats, market intelligence firm Forrester Research states in its "Global Security Budgets in 2021" report, published on March 26.

The report, based on a survey of nearly 3,700 budget decision-makers, found that about half of budgets is allocated to security products and half to services, across all levels of security spending. Among the companies that spent 0% to 10% of their IT budgets on security, however, almost half had not detected a breach in the past 12 months, compared with a quarter to a third of companies that spent more.

On its face, the data appears to be good news, but the companies are actually failing to detect attacks rather than avoiding them, says Jeff Pollard, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research.

"When you dig into it and talk to organizations of that size, they don't have the situational awareness and visibility that [those companies who spend more] have," he says. "So, for the companies spending 0% to 10% of their budget, the issue is not spend less and get breached less, it's spend less and fail to detect the attacks until much later." darkreading.com

Explosion of Data-Stealing Ransomware
Nearly 40% of new ransomware families use both data encryption and
data theft in attacks
Data-stealing ransomware attacks, information harvesting malware, and supply chain attacks are among the critical threats to organizations, according to F-Secure.

One of the most notable trends highlighted is the evolution of ransomware - attacks that extort organizations by preventing them from accessing their data.

Explosion of ransomware that also steals data

2020 saw an explosion of ransomware that also steals data, giving the attackers more leverage over their victims. If organizations first refuse to pay a ransom to decrypt their data, attackers threaten to leak the stolen information, increasing pressure on victims to pay.
This evolution, referred to as Ransomware 2.0 in the report, was a significant development in 2020. Only one ransomware group was observed using this type of extortion in 2019. By the end of 2020, 15 different ransomware families had adopted this approach. Furthermore, nearly 40% of ransomware families discovered in 2020, as well as several older families, were known to also steal data from victims by the end of last year.

"Ransomware actors, current and future, will likely feel emboldened to try new things and jump on vulnerabilities faster, which we're already seeing with the recent MS Exchange vulnerabilities." helpnetsecurity.com

In the Rush to Embrace Hybrid Cloud, Don't Forget About Security

Cloud service providers typically only secure the infrastructure itself, while customers are responsible for their data and application security.

In the last year, most organizations have accelerated adoption of cloud services far more rapidly than they originally planned to, but that doesn't mean that everything is moving to the cloud. Most organizations are adopting a hybrid approach to their cloud deployment; while traditional enterprises have operated on-premises for decades, they can clearly see the advantages of public cloud.

Cloud computing provides significant benefits to organizations, enabling far more agility for development teams, on-demand scalability to meet variable compute needs, and reduced responsibility for infrastructure and the staff required to maintain it.

But while cloud service providers (CSPs) - such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform - are responsible for securing the infrastructure itself, the organizations themselves remain responsible for the security of their data and applications. Thus, the slower shift for established enterprises; they are moving workloads up to the cloud as they can, while still managing challenges related to rearchitecting applications, addressing compliance and security concerns, and finding the right talent and resources to manage their new hybrid environments. darkreading.com

COVID Update

Canadian Lockdowns Causing Frustration
Disappointment, anger, confusion over BC's new restrictions on indoor activities

Indoor dining, group fitness exercise, religious gatherings on hold

B.C. restaurants, religious groups and group fitness gyms are shifting course from opening up to closing down some services and activities until April 19 after the province's health officials announced new restrictions to stop the increase of COVID-19 infections.

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said Monday that the province recorded 2,518 new cases of COVID-19 over the last three days, with a record high of 936 on Saturday.

To combat that growth, B.C's struggling restaurant industry is restricted from serving food and beverages indoors to customers but patrons are allowed to purchase take-out food and dine on patios.

The B.C. government says breweries that serve appetizers and snacks - but no full meals - will have to close entirely unless the business arranges for food to be consumed on a patio through partnerships with food-trucks or restaurants. cbc.ca

Canadian Retailers Playing Key Role in Vaccinations
London Drugs pharmacies preparing to become COVID mass vaccination sites
Pharmacies at London Drugs locations across BC are expected to play a major role in COVID-19 mass vaccination efforts over the coming months. The retailer made public on Thursday evening that it has been planning supply chain strategies for the timely and efficient distribution of the vaccines to its pharmacy locations.

It has invested in several specialized freezers and sourced ultra-low temperature containers to safely transport the vaccines - specifically Pfizer and Moderna - from the distribution centre to pharmacies. As well, they have secured the protective gear needed to ensure staff can safely transfer the vaccine and PPE to protect staff and the public during the vaccination process.

The announcement by London Drugs came just hours after BC provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry provided an updated timeline for the vaccination of the general population, based on the made-in-BC strategy of a four-month second shot schedule for vaccines that require an additional shot. dailyhive.com

Fake COVID Websites Scamming Canadians
Beware of COVID-19 scams offering to help skip the line for vaccine
Waiting to get the COVID-19 vaccine can be frustrating for some so it's not surprising scammers are claiming they can help you get the vaccine much sooner.

"Scammers are feeding off the frenzy of people trying to get a vaccine by offering fake promises of early access to shots and are targeting people by social media posts, e-mails, texts, online ads and robocalls," said Donna Rosato with Consumer Reports.

Ever since the vaccines were first announced scammers have created fake websites, texts and emails that claim they can sell you the vaccine or get you to the front of the line to get your shot.

The vaccine is always free and you never need to pay to make an appointment. toronto.ctvnews.ca

Canada's Epstein Denied Bail - Again
Canadian judge denies bail for fashion mogul Peter Nygard
A judge on Friday again denied bail to Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard, who was arrested in December on U.S. charges that alleging he sexually abused women and girls he lured with promises of opportunities in fashion and modeling over the last 25 years.

Peter Nygard unsuccessfully attempted to appeal an earlier ruling that denied him bail. That means Nygard will await his extradition hearings in jail. Nygard was arrested in December in Winnipeg and faces nine counts in the Southern District of New York.

Authorities there accuse the 79-year-old of using his influence in the fashion industry to lure women and girls with the promise of modelling and other financial opportunities.

The judge who originally denied Nygard bail had cited concerns that he would contact witnesses if released. Federal prosecutors argued that Nygard has the finances and personnel available to assist him in obstructing justice. apnews.com

SIU clears 2 Hamilton officers after man shot dead at Cannon Street plaza
Two Hamilton police officers who killed a man outside a Cannon Street convenience store last summer have been cleared by the province's Special Investigations Unit.

A release issued Wednesday afternoon says SIU director Joseph Martino "has determined there are no reasonable grounds to believe that the subject officers committed a criminal offence in connection with the man's death." The investigation found the man fired a shotgun before he was shot by police, the report says.

The SIU does not identify the man, but family have confirmed that he was 42-year-old Jason Peterson.

The shooting took place July 7, 2020. A woman called police at about 3:30 p.m. that day to report that her ex-boyfriend was armed with a sawed-off shotgun and holding her hostage at her home on Ottawa Street North, the SIU report says.

Police had already connected the man with a stolen Buick, the report says, which officers found at about 4 p.m at the plaza at the corner of Cannon Street East and Gage Avenue North. Police blocked the vehicle and approached its occupants. Peterson was in the passenger seat of the Buick, the SIU says. cbc.ca

Intense Pressure for Amazon Workers to Meet Quotas
AOC says Amazon workers are 'defecating in bags' as union vote looms
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday criticized Amazon over the company's alleged poor working conditions, highlighting a report that found employees are forced to go to the bathroom in bags.

The freshman congresswoman from the Bronx blasted the company while responding to a tweet from Amazon spokesperson Jay Carney, who previously served as White House Press Secretary for the Obama administration.

"A loved one of mine worked Amazon delivery last year & left because that's how dangerous it felt to them working for a company that also puts so much performance pressure on their workers that defecating in bags is a common enough occurrence that there are internal memos about it," Cortez tweeted.

The congresswoman was referencing a report from The Intercept last week that alleged, citing internal Amazon documents, employees went to the bathroom in bags.

Workers who spoke to the outlet said the issue was widespread, caused by pressure to meet quotas. nypost.com

International Theft Gang Targets LEGO Stores
French Police are Hunting Down an International Group of LEGO Thieves
The French authorities are now investigating an international group of thieves targeting LEGO stores. According to The Guardian, the French police have issued an alert following the arrest last June of three people caught trying to steal boxes of LEGO from a toy shop in Yvelines, just outside Paris. Reports of LEGO theft came as early as 2019, and the police have since been trying to combat the criminal activity. Officers revealed that the gang travels from Poland to France and set up in hotels within the Paris region before raiding various toy stores. They then bring their loot back to Poland and sell them off there.

"The Lego community isn't just made up of children," an investigator told French newspaper Le Parisien. "There are numerous adults who play with it; there are swaps and sales on the internet. We've also had people complaining their homes have been broken into and Lego was stolen." "There's always been dealing in Lego because it's a premium toy range and attracts many adults, but also because the company withdraws its collections around two years after they come out, so a secondhand market is inevitable," added Gerben van IJken, a LEGO specialist working at the trading platform for the toys. "The phenomenon has exploded over the last eight years because people have realized they can make money reselling LEGO on the internet."

The criminal activity plaguing LEGO isn't exclusive to France either. There have been reports of LEGO theft across the U.S., Canada, and Australia, and in San Diego in 2005, a group of women was arrested for stealing a whopping €200,000 EUR (approx. $214,370 USD) worth of the bricks. hypebeast.com
