The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Industry Groups Urge Congress to Modernize Consumer Protection Laws

INFORM Consumers Act Critical to Fighting Counterfeits, Retail Crime

Washington, DC - Today five diverse industry groups - the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), the Business Roundtable (BRT), National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), National Retail Federation (NRF), and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce - jointly sent a letter to Congressional leadership expressing support for the inclusion of the Integrity, Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces for Consumers Act (INFORM Consumers Act) in the final version of the Bipartisan Innovation Act.

The INFORM Consumers Act is bipartisan legislation critical to fighting both dangerous counterfeit products and tackling organized criminal networks. The letter notes counterfeit goods - 90% of which flow into the U.S. from China - and organized retail crime through sophisticated criminal networks puts consumers, employees, and communities at risk. The economic harm is equally alarming, with the latest study showing a loss of $69 billion in sales and over 658,000 jobs from organized retail crime and a loss of nearly $131 billion and 325,000 jobs from fake and counterfeit goods. Most alarming, Homeland Security Investigations has connected this illicit activity to human trafficking, narcotics, gun smuggling and other serious criminal activity.

"The impact of counterfeit goods and organized retail crime on the U.S. economy and on businesses and consumers is now too harmful to ignore. The INFORM Consumers Act is a commonsense, bipartisan solution that would ensure criminals no longer have a free pass to conduct their illicit business anonymously online," said RILA Senior Executive Vice President, Public Affairs Michael Hanson. "We urge lawmakers to seize this opportunity to protect American families, communities, employees, and consumers and include INFORM in the final version of the Bipartisan Innovation Act."

"The rise in organized retail crime, along with the increase in violence associated with these crimes, threatens the safety of retail employees, customers and the communities they serve," NRF Senior Vice President of Government Relations David French said. "It is time for Congress to pass the INFORM Consumers Act, which has strong bipartisan support, and is a critical part of the solution to prevent the sale of stolen goods online. rila.org

Progressive DAs Being Held Accountable
Tough-On-Crime DA's Answering The Voters' Call

WSJ: Progressive Prosecutor Movement Tested by Rising Crime and Angry Voters

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin and other prosecutors advancing progressive measures around the U.S. face electoral challenges

A successful recall of Mr. Boudin would mark a significant setback in what has been called the progressive prosecutor movement. Progressive prosecutors include the district attorneys of Los Angeles County; New York County, which encompasses Manhattan; Chicago's Cook County; and Philadelphia-all places where homicides went up during the pandemic and lockdowns. Homicides in the U.S. jumped nearly 30% in 2020 from 2019, the largest single-year increase ever recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Worry about crime among Americans is at its highest since 2016, according to a national Gallup Poll in April. Many criminologists say there is little evidence that prosecutors' policies are to blame for increased crime, but voter concerns are resonating in local politics during this midterm year, including a backlash against the "defund the police" movement.

In just the past three weeks, candidates for district attorney with tough-on-crime messages in smaller counties have defeated progressive rivals in at least five elections in North Carolina, Oregon and Arkansas.

In Pennsylvania, legislation that would effectively bar a third term for Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, who has declined to file charges against people arrested for drug possession, cleared the Republican-led state House of Representatives in April with votes from several Democrats.

Groups allied with police unions and largely funded by business leaders have gathered tens of thousands of signatures in Los Angeles, Northern Virginia and Colorado to unseat prosecutors changing longstanding practices.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is one recall target.

In April last year, the former chair of the San Francisco Democratic Party launched a recall campaign casting Mr. Boudin as soft on crime, a theme that resonated with residents fed up with petty theft, drug use and homelessness. wsj.com

San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin's Recall - Tuesday, June 7th, 2022
Virtually All the Major News Outlets Calling Out SF DA Boudin

Update on Progressive SF DA Recall - It Could Signal the Experiment's End
NY Times: In San Francisco, Democrats Are at War With Themselves Over Crime

Fueled by concerns about burglaries and hate crimes, San Francisco's liberal district attorney, Chesa Boudin, faces a divisive recall in a famously progressive city.

A Democratic civil war in one of America's most liberal cities: an effort to recall San Francisco's district attorney, Chesa Boudin, that has echoes of the party's larger split over how to handle matters of crime and punishment. In an overwhelmingly Democratic city, liberals and independents will decide a recall that is receiving major funding from conservative donors in addition to backing from moderate Democrats.

But his message of leniency for perpetrators has rankled residents of the city, many of whom feel unsafe and violated by property crimes. Like a president facing election during a bad economy, Mr. Boudin finds himself a vessel for residents' pandemic angst and their frustrations over a wave of burglaries and other property crimes in well-to-do areas.

If successful, the recall would overturn one of the nation's boldest efforts in criminal justice reform: an experiment to install a former public defender as the protector of public safety with promises to reduce mass incarceration, hold the police accountable and tackle racial disparities in the justice system.

A vote to push Mr. Boudin from office would signal to Democrats that talking tough on crime could be a winning message in the midterm elections, and deal a blow to a national movement that has elected progressive prosecutors in cities such as Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles.

On the campaign trail, Mr. Boudin is facing stiff headwinds. Several polls showed him down at least 10 points.

Mr. Boudin added that the recall campaign had exploited individual tragedies like the increase in media coverage of crime, and especially high-profile videos on social media of shoplifting cases - like one showing a man on a bike stealing from a Walgreens.

"And then people read the story, they see the video, and they perceive crime as being out of control," Mr. Boudin said. "When in fact things like shoplifting are down dramatically. It doesn't mean we don't have a real problem with auto burglaries, but the notion that it's out of control today and it wasn't in 2019 is just demonstrably false."

Another problem is that Mr. Boudin and the Police Department, whose rate of arrests for reported crimes is among the lowest of major cities, have a toxic relationship. In the 2019 campaign, the San Francisco Police Officers Association attacked Mr. Boudin by calling him the "#1 choice of criminals and gang members." nytimes.com

San Fran DA Says Crime Surge Beyond His Control
Chesa Boudin says recall is 'scapegoating' in Chronicle interview

The embattled district attorney says he's as frustrated as anyone about crime in San Francisco, but that much of what ails the city is beyond the control of his office

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is trying to fight off an effort to recall him from office in next Tuesday's election.

"I'm working as hard as I can every day to make the city safer for all of us," Boudin says, "and I can't blame people ... for being frustrated. The last two years have presented us individually and collectively with challenges and changes we never could have anticipated."

But, he says, "What's unfortunate is that the anxiety and the fear around those changes has been directed at me, and my office has been scapegoated."

"The recall has done an effective job for some folks of making them think that I am responsible for all of the ills in the city: homelessness, drug addiction, poverty, auto burglaries, you name it. Problems that, if we're honest and if we take a moment to reflect, we know predated my tenure and will probably still be here no matter who the next district attorney is five or 10 years from now." sfchronicle.com

NY Post: Pray that San Francisco recalls DA Chesa Boudin
Homicides are up 36% from 2019 (the year Boudin was elected). Motor vehicle theft is up 36%, arson 40% and larceny up 20%. This, after he moved to end cash bail and greatly restrict all pretrial detention; his passion project is releasing as much as 40% of the city's jail population.

Residents are fleeing in droves, for a population drop of 6.7% from April 2020 to July 2021. A fourth of those leaving cite crime as the chief reason. nypost.com

Another Bloody Weekend Highlights America's Mass Shooting Epidemic

Mass Shootings Break Out Across the Country This Past Weekend
At least 12 killed, 54 injured in 7 separate mass shootings this weekend
The U.S. continues to grapple with mass shootings as at least seven have occurred over the weekend, resulting in the deaths of 12 people and injuries to 54 others. The spate of recent shootings has pushed guns to the forefront of a national conversation as leaders reckon with how to curb the alarming rate of violence.

An outdoor high school graduation party in Summerton, South Carolina, ended in bloodshed after two cars pulled up to a house and before shots were fired. Eight people were hit, according to a statement from the Clarendon County Sheriff's Office.

A shooting near a bar in Chattanooga, Tennessee, left 14 people struck while three others were hit by cars, Chattanooga Police Chief Celeste Murphy said during a press conference Sunday. Three people died - two of them from gunshots while the third was run over by a vehicle that was trying to flee the scene, per local media.

A bustling street in Philadelphia saw multiple shooters open fire on Saturday night, killing three people and injuring at least 11 others. Police officers on the scene engaged one of the shooters, who dropped their weapon and fled the area. No arrests have been made.

A shooting at a strip mall in Phoenix left one person dead and eight others injured, AP reported. Police confirmed during a press conference that about 100 people were at a party at the strip mall about 1am when an altercation led to the shooting, CBS News reported.

Five teenagers were shot and hospitalized after gunfire broke out at a West Texas high school graduation party at 1am Saturday, AP reported. A shooting in Macon, Georgia, shortly before 7pm on Saturday left one dead and three others injured, according to a press release from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.

A shooting outside a bar in Mesa, Arizona, early Sunday killed two people and left two others injured, an Arizona ABC affiliate reported.

Three people were wounded and one was killed in an incident in Omaha, Nebraska. In Chesterfield, Virginia: one person was killed and another five were wounded. axios.com  nbcnews.com  nytimes.com

8,000 Gun Deaths So Far This Year
As violence marks America, local leaders ask: Where will it hit next?

Gun attacks are 'a sickness our country has to address and remedy,' one mayor said, but he and others are not optimistic about new restrictions

Local leaders say they are pessimistic that a federal - or even state-level - solution to the violence is forthcoming, even as President Biden renews his push for Congress to act on gun restrictions. Instead, armed with little more than fresh outrage, elected officials, police chiefs and school leaders are scrambling to find other ways to keep their own communities from becoming the next to be shattered in the country's unrelenting season of bloodshed.

Besides beefing up response plans and fortifying potential targets, local officials say they hope to revive public service campaigns that encourage even the nation's youngest students to report suspicious behavior. Local governments also hope to scrape together enough funding to expand mental health services to try to reach troubled residents before they lash out in violence.

The nation's recent bout of high-profile gun violence is part of a terrible trend that began in 2020, when a swirl of factors - including pandemic-induced stress, a spike in gun sales and a frayed relationship between police and the people they serve - drove shooting deaths to the highest level in decades. Last year was even deadlier, according to the archive.

Through June 1 this year, more than 8,000 people across the United States have been killed in gun violence, 300 fewer deaths than during the same period in 2021 but over 1,000 more than in 2020, according to a Washington Post analysis of the Gun Violence Archive's data.

With that, 2022 is on track to be among the deadliest years for shootings since the turn of the century, even if it falls short of 2021's devastating toll. washingtonpost.com

Analysis: America's deadly weekend of more mass shootings raises the stakes for Senate gun talks
In South Carolina and Texas, victims were shot at a high school graduation party. In Kentucky, funeral goers were hit outside a church. Multiple shooters sprayed a crowd with bullets in Philadelphia. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, shots rang out at a nightclub.

Just America going about its normal business this weekend under the deadly daily shadow of gun violence, as a staggering 10 mass shootings since Friday deepened trauma from recent massacres at a Buffalo supermarket, a Texas elementary school and a mass shooting at a Tulsa, Oklahoma medical center.

The horrific new trail of death and injury, of broken families and mourning and fear, raised the stakes for the Senate's latest effort to finally do something to stem the shootings and massacres and the costs for yet another political failure.

The effort, led by Connecticut Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy and Texas Sen John Cornyn, a Republican, reaches a critical point this week. It won't be enough to end the violence in a nation awash in firearms.

Murphy told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that despite formidable obstacles to success, he had never been more confident of getting something done.

Murphy said that the most likely areas for progress included "red flag" laws that can be used to confiscate weapons from people who are judged a danger or some tightening of background check rules in addition to more resources for mental health.

Still, there are signs that the momentum towards tighter gun restrictions is growing in the country with polls showing majority support for tighter background checks and assault weapons bans. In one case, a group of 250 people who identified themselves as conservatives and gun owners took out an ad in the Dallas Morning News calling on Cornyn to work to enhance gun control.

A deadly trail of weekend shootings

By early Sunday evening, figures detailing a weekend of violence had reached stunning levels, even given the regular daily toll of gun killings and incidents.

Since Friday alone, there were 10 mass shootings in the country that killed at least 12 people and injured many more. That's not to mention all the other smaller shootings that occurred, as part of the drum beat of death. At times at the weekend, news of more shootings came in at speeds that were difficult to believe. mercurynews.com

Retail Workers #1 COVID Deaths

Major Study Linking Retail-COVID Deaths Continues to Make Headlines
Most workers who died of COVID in 2020 had something essential in common
Most working-age Americans who died of COVID-19 during the first year of the pandemic were so-called essential workers in labor, service and retail jobs that required on-site attendance and prolonged contact with others, according to a recently published study led by a University of South Florida epidemiologist.

The study looks back on COVID-19 deaths in 2020 and affirms what many had already known or suspected - that Americans who could not work from home and who labored in low-paying jobs with few or no benefits, such as paid sick leave and health insurance coverage, bore the brunt of deaths during the pandemic's first year, said Jason Salemi, an associate professor in USF's College of Public Health and co-author of the study.

Salemi said the finding, while perhaps expected, left him with two takeaways: That essential workers need more protections during an infectious disease pandemic, and that society's desire to "return to normal" will mean different things for different people - with inequitable consequences.

"If I say I want things to return to normal, I'm in a position of advantage," Salemi said. "I can work from home most days. I have access to a primary care physician, and paid sick leave. There are people in this study for whom that may not be the case." miamiherald.com

COVID Cases Starting to Fall Again?
COVID-19 cases appear to level off across the country
The number of reported new COVID cases - along with COVID deaths - appeared to level off over the past seven days. It's unclear if this is a true change or the result of a Memorial Day disruption in reporting. But, overall reported case rates are five times higher right now than they were this time last year, even though people are far less likely to have cases reported due to home testing.

Last week, there were an average of 98,688 new cases reported a day, down 4% from nearly 103,000 two weeks prior. There were fewer than 20,000 a day reported at the beginning of June last year.

Hawaii had the highest case rate with 89 new reported cases per 100,000 people, while Oklahoma and South Dakota had the lowest case rates. After surges across several states, particularly in the northeast, the last several COVID maps have indicated numbers may be dropping. axios.com

Using Federal COVID Funds to Keep Retail Storefronts Afloat
Kansas Governor Signs Law Establishing COVID-19 Retail Storefront Property Tax Relief, Amending Sales Tax Provisions
Gov. Laura Kelly signed a bill Thursday granting property tax relief to retail storefronts affected by government public health orders during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The law, HB 2136, is highlighted by property tax relief for 2020 and 2021 if claimants' small retail businesses were operationally shut down or restricted by a health order. The program is funded with $50 million in federal pandemic aid money.

Calculations depend in part on the length of the health orders and either the property owner's tax payment or a leaser's rent payments. To qualify, retail businesses cannot have received more than $150,000 total in prior pandemic relief. Certain businesses are excluded.

"They represent the beating heart of our economy," Curtis Sneden, president of the Topeka Chamber, said of local small businesses. "And you know, since March of 2020, that heart has been under a lot of strain, hasn't it?" cjonline.com

Global Expansion of Face Biometrics in Retail
Face biometrics expanding in retail on three continents
Retail applications of face biometrics for payments at checkouts and vending machines, and related technologies in advertising, appear to be gaining momentum, with a rumoured UK rollout, a Latin American infrastructure deal, and a Hong Kong IPO.

Face biometrics are also part of an age estimation trial with ITL technology, which is being expanded by a UK retail chain. The moves come soon after the announcement of an initiative for face biometrics in retail from Mastercard and Payface.

Tesco is planning to introduce biometric payments through face or palm authentication by early next year, according to rumors reported by Charged Retail. Customers of Tesco can already use native device fingerprint or face biometrics through the Tesco Pay+ app, which also provides membership account benefits and tracks their spending. The next move will reportedly see biometrics introduced at the point of sale.

Vsblty partners on 50k-store rollout infrastructure

Vsblty and Latin American joint venture partner Winkel Media have inked a deal with AustinGIS to ease their path to a 50,000-store media network in the region.

The company has been partnering up to deploy its face biometrics and other computer vision capabilities for in-store advertising at convenience stores and other retailers in Latin America, including a deal with Grupo Modelo and Retailigent Media in 2020.

Biometric vending machine-maker plans IPO

Ubox makes smart retail devices featuring facial recognition payments, and had nearly 103,000 vending machines deployed to 288 cities as of 2021, according to the report, which it says is the largest such network in the country. According to the South China Morning Post, Ant Group-backed Ubox lost $204 million in the past two years, but attributed the results to the pandemic.

Age check technology trial expands

UK retailer Bestway is expanding a trial of biometrics-based anonymous age estimation at Bargain Booze shop points-of-sale with Innovative Technology's (ITL's) MyCheckr.

Baby Formula Shortage Update
Abbott Nutrition resumes production of baby formula at Michigan facility following contamination

Abbott Nutrition has restarted production at the Michigan baby formula factory that was shut down in February.

Abbott Nutrition has restarted production at a Michigan baby formula factory that was previously shut down due to contamination, contributing to a nationwide shortage of formula.

"We will ramp production as quickly as we can while meeting all requirements," Abbott said in a statement. "We're committed to safety and quality and will do everything we can to re-earn the trust parents, caregivers and health care providers have placed in us for 130 years."

Abbott, the largest infant formula manufacturer in the US, said it will take approximately three weeks for products to hit store shelves.

The Abbott Nutrition plant in Sturgis shut down in February following complaints of illness in infants who consumed formula products manufactured there, two of whom later died. The illnesses were linked to the environmental bacteria, cronobacter sakazakii. businessinsider.com

NRF Remains Confident in Retail's Resilience
NRF Says Economy 'Being Rebalanced' but 'Extreme Cooling Off' Seems Unlikely
The Federal Reserve faces "a tricky job" in addressing inflation but continuing growth in employment, wages and consumer spending make it unlikely the effort will backfire into a major setback for the economy, National Retail Federation Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz said today.

"With changes underway that focus on taming inflation without splintering the economy, the nation's economic system is in the process of being rebalanced in ways that are testing its resilience," Kleinhenz said. "This is an extraordinary period with unprecedented factors that include inflation at a 40-year high, uncertainty over the war in Ukraine, supply chain disruptions and the Federal Reserve raising interest rates. There's good reason why businesses, consumers and policymakers alike all feel uneasy."

"Though many people fear an extreme cooling off of the economy, there is not an overwhelming amount of evidence to support such predictions," Kleinhenz said. "In general, the data suggests that we remain in an ongoing expansion." nrf.com

Union Retaliation Closure?
Starbucks closed a New York store 'illegally' after its workers unionized

The workers accuse the coffee chain of retaliating against them for unionizing, Bloomberg reported.

Starbucks' decision to permanently close a store in Ithaca, New York, has prompted its workers' union to accuse the company of retaliation for recent union activism, Bloomberg reported.

The union filed the complaint about the "illegal" closure to the National Labor Relations Board on Friday. Reggie Borges, a spokesperson for Starbucks, told Insider that the closure was due to facilities, staffing, and "time and attendance" issues.

Three Ithaca stores have voted to unionize in the past few months, along with more than 50 Starbucks stores nationwide. businessinsider.com

Cybercriminals Shift to BEC Attacks
The Hacker Gold Rush That's Poised to Eclipse Ransomware

As governments crack down on ransomware, cybercriminals may soon shift to business email compromise-already the world's most profitable type of scam.

RANSOMWARE ATTACKS, INCLUDING those of the massively disruptive and dangerous variety, have proved difficult to combat comprehensively. Hospitals, government agencies, schools, and even critical infrastructure companies continue to face debilitating attacks and large ransom demands from hackers.

But as governments around the world and law enforcement in the United States have grown serious about cracking down on ransomware and have started to make some progress, researchers are trying to stay a step ahead of attackers and anticipate where ransomware gangs may turn next if their main hustle becomes impractical.

At the RSA security conference in San Francisco on Monday, longtime digital scams researcher Crane Hassold will present findings that warn it would be logical for ransomware actors to eventually convert their operations to business email compromise (BEC) attacks as ransomware becomes less profitable or carries a higher risk for attackers.

In the US, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has repeatedly found that total money stolen in BEC scams far exceeds that pilfered in ransomware attacks-though ransomware attacks can be more visible and cause more disruption and associated losses.

In business email compromise, attackers infiltrate a legitimate corporate email account and use the access to send phony invoices or initiate contract payments that trick businesses into wiring money to criminals when they think they're just paying their bills.

"So much attention is being paid to ransomware, and governments all over the world are taking action to disrupt it, so eventually the return on investment is going to be impacted," says Hassold, who is director of threat intelligence at Abnormal Security and a former digital behavior analyst for the FBI. "And ransomware actors are not going to say, 'Oh, hey, you got me' and go away. So it's possible that you would have this new threat where you have the more sophisticated actors behind ransomware campaigns moving over to the BEC space where all the money is being made." wired.com

'Great Resignation' Hitting Cybersecurity
Essential mantras to keep your security all-stars from flaming out

The cybersecurity industry has been facing a staffing crisis that shows few signs of waning any time soon.

We've all read the countless headlines about the Great Resignation over the past year. Most of these stories relate to the difficulty retaining frontline workers that industries like transportation and retail are having, but the cybersecurity industry has been facing its own staffing crisis that shows few signs of waning any time soon.
The dearth of skilled cybersecurity workers is evident at both ends of the supply and demand spectrum. The White House estimates that roughly half a million cybersecurity jobs remain open while the IT trade association CompTIA notes that cybersecurity jobs account for 20% of all open IT positions.

While these numbers are alarming, the greater concern for business leaders is their ability to retain the staff they already have as the demand for these individuals is only going to grow more intense in the coming years.

As the pandemic (hopefully) winds down, businesses must grapple with the reality that many of their employees aren't interested in coming back to the office. Moreover, many of these individuals have proven they are more than capable of conducting their work remotely and shouldn't be constrained by geography.

This increased mobility means that in-demand security staff will have far more high-paying employment opportunities to choose from. It also means that the C-suite will have to work that much harder to not only attract new talent but to keep their existing workers from burning out and seeking greener pastures. fastcompany.com

CFOs & CEOs: Security Teams Struggling to Communicate & Siloed
Most CFOs, CEOs see cybersecurity gaps: Accenture
Fewer than two out five CFOs and CEOs (38%) worldwide believe that their companies' cybersecurity adequately shields more than 75% of their operations, Accenture said, noting that roughly half of top executives identified low funding and weak accountability as obstacles to protection.

"Security teams really struggle to help project what things they are able to do and what things they are not able to do and how that connects back to corporate strategy and how the business operates," according to Ryan LaSalle, leader for Accenture Security in North America. Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) generally are more confident than other top executives in their companies' defenses against hackers.

Companies last year raised their cybersecurity spending to 15% of their information technology budgets while facing 270 cyberattacks on average, a 31% surge compared with 2020, Accenture said while describing results of a survey. Nearly half (49%) of CFOs and CEOs said that siloed responsibilities undermine cybersecurity.

Ransomware, "business email compromise" schemes and the criminal use of cryptocurrency were the leading causes of internet crime complaints to the FBI last year, pushing up reported abuses 7% compared with 2020 to a record 847,376. Potential losses exceeded $6.9 billion, the FBI said in a report.

U.S. companies were the No. 1 target of ransomware hackers last year, facing 421 million attempted breaches, an increase of 98% compared with 2020, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs said in a report.

Accenture determined in its global survey of 500 CFOs and CEOs and 4,244 CISOs that only 5% of companies have adequately aligned cybersecurity with business strategy. cfodive.com

The first "next-generation" facility is scheduled to open this summer in Joliet, Illinois, according to a company post from David Guggina, senior vice president of innovation and automation at Walmart U.S.

The retail giant partnered with fulfillment tech company Knapp to develop what Guggina described as "an automated, high-density storage system that streamlines a manual, twelve-step process into just five steps."

Through the four new fulfillment centers alone, Walmart could offer next-day or two-day shipping to 75% of the U.S. population, according to Guggina.

The centers use an automated storage system to house products - once they are received, unpacked and placed in specialized "totes" - in millions of designated locations. When a customer purchases an item, the system retrieves it automatically and creates a custom-fitting box.

"This is a huge win for our associates, who traditionally would have walked up to nine miles per day, picking items from multiple floors of shelving spread out over hundreds of thousands of square feet of space," Guggina said of the automated retrieval system.

Walmart previously announced another high-tech fulfillment center set for Lebanon, Tennessee, that also makes use of a robotic retrieval system to locate items for employees.

"Our automation plan is now ready to scale," CEO Doug McMillon said then. "We'll be investing in our distribution centers, our e-commerce fulfillment centers and in market fulfillment centers, which will, in many cases, be inside of or built beside our stores." retaildive.com  businessinsider.com  supermarketnews.com

ORC Gang of 12 Hit Hundreds of Apple Stores for $6.1M
Sold 10,000+ iPhones & iPads Globally

'Leaders of International Organization that Trafficked in Counterfeit Apple Products Plead Guilty'
SAN DIEGO - Three brothers from San Diego pleaded guilty in federal court yesterday, admitting that for eight years, they led an international conspiracy to traffic counterfeit iPhones and iPads.

As part of their plea agreements, the Liao brothers - Zhiwei, Zhimin and Zhiting - and their wives - Dao La, Mengmeng Zhang, and Tam Nguyen, who also pleaded guilty yesterday - agreed to forfeit their interests in five residences in San Diego, more than $250,000 in criminal proceeds, and more than 200 Apple iPhones that were counterfeit, fraudulently obtained, or linked to their criminal conspiracy.

The Liaos admitted that, from 2011 through at least August 2019, they managed an organization to traffic in counterfeit Apple products. The Liaos imported counterfeit iPhones and iPads from China that looked genuine and included identification numbers that matched identification numbers on real iPhones and iPads that were under warranty and had been previously sold to customers in the United States and Canada.

At the direction of the Liao brothers, co-conspirators traveled to hundreds of Apple Stores across the United States and Canada and attempted to exchange more than 10,000 counterfeit iPhones and iPads for genuine iPhones and iPads. The Liaos exported fraudulently obtained iPhones and iPads to individuals in foreign countries for profit. The estimated total infringement amount or loss suffered by Apple was approximately $6.1 million.

The Liao brothers and their wives are scheduled to appear for sentencing before U.S. District Judge Cynthia A. Bashant on August 15, 2022.

Federal Charges

Conspiracy to Traffic in Counterfeit Goods: Ten years in prison, $2 million fine, mandatory restitution, and forfeiture.

Wire fraud: Twenty years in prison, the greater of $250,000, or twice the value of the gross gain or twice the gross loss to the victims, mandatory restitution, and forfeiture.

Mail fraud: Twenty years in prison, the greater of $250,000, or twice the value of the gross gain or twice the gross loss to the victims, mandatory restitution, and forfeiture.

"For years, the Liao brothers and their co-conspirators trafficked thousands of counterfeit Apple products in exchange for genuine Apple products totaling millions of dollars," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Stacey Moy. justice.gov
