The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Federal Legislation Needed to Fight the Source of ORC
Op-Ed: INFORM Consumers Act Is Needed to Fight Organized Retail Crime
The economic ramifications of these crimes have been noticeably detrimental. In 2021 alone, the Retail Industry Leaders Association reported $213,959,136 in stolen merchandise, $47,990,000 tax loss, and 5,044 jobs lost. Unfortunately, organized retail theft operations are rarely isolated to one state. For example, the Middletown Rhode Island Police Department and agencies across New England dismantled a massive crime ring that had been terrorizing Staples stores spanning the East coast - from Massachusetts, to Rhode Island, to New Hampshire - for over three years.

Rhode Island's state legislature has already tried taking a swing at addressing the pervasive problem. This spring, H7676 was introduced to curb the crime wave by defining organized retail crime as a "concerted action of three or more people'' and by making it punishable by up to five years of imprisonment. Though commendable in its effort, this bill is just a band-aid fix to an issue that warrants a much more comprehensive solution.

What Rhode Island and states across the country need is a uniform approach to disincentivizing these crimes from occurring in the first place. What we need is H.R. 5502, the Integrity, Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces for Consumers (INFORM Consumers) Act.

The INFORM Consumers Act would combat organized retail crime by making it more difficult to sell stolen goods online. By requiring online marketplaces to disclose the name, tax I.D., bank account information and contact information of certain high-volume, third-party sellers, the INFORM Consumers Act encourages even more transparency from the millions of people selling on online marketplaces. Losing their anonymity on the internet means that criminals will be left without their usual channels for peddling poached products, rendering large-scale robberies much less enticing.

Moreover, by creating a uniform selling standard, the INFORM Consumers Act would also save hardworking online sellers from navigating through a patchwork of state-by-state regulations. Ultimately, without a blanket standard, these various bills will end up creating more obstacles for honest entrepreneurs than the nefarious criminals they are intended to target.

Amid a nationwide recession and historically high inflation, Rhode Island's small businesses simply can't take much more economic strain. Thankfully, the INFORM Consumers Act is a commonsense solution with overwhelming bipartisan support that touts retail, tech, and law enforcement groups as champions of its passage; an anomaly in Washington, D.C. Given its resounding stamp of approval, come September, Congress must prioritize passing the INFORM Consumers Act, the best path forward to keeping sellers nationwide supported, safe, and successful. golocalprov.com

Armed Store Security Guards Becoming Commonplace
Retailers Are Adding More Security Guards To Stores - And A Lot Of Them Are Carrying Guns

Faced with rising theft and violence - and pressure from scared employees - grocery stores and other retailers are bulking up on armed security.

While a national debate rages over whether armed guards should be stationed at public places like schools, retailers around the country are beefing up armed security presence in stores, mostly using ex-police and military. Since July 2021, there's been a 108% increase in demand for armed guards at grocery stores, according to Allied Universal, one of the world's largest security staffing firms, which works with many of the nation's biggest retailers and shopping malls.

In December, Iowa-based grocery chain Hy-Vee said it would be adding armed guards to its stores. The move was intended to "provide another layer of safety and security for our customers," chief operating officer Jeremy Gosch said in a statement. The 285-store grocer released a video that shows security staff in black uniforms roaming the aisles, appearing to have badges, guns, handcuffs and pepper spray. The decision was not prompted by any one incident, the company said, but rather a rise in retail theft nationwide.

Another grocery chain, ShopRite, added armed guards at some stores in the early innings of the pandemic when it faced a crush of customers rushing to stock up on items for quarantine. Guards patrolled the aisles and stood at the front door.

Security firms are being inundated with requests. The number of calls from retailers interested in increasing their security has jumped by more than 50% in the past 12 months, said Sean Meehan, director of sales and marketing at UFI Security.

There's also been a rise in smash-and-grab burglaries, with groups of professional thieves breaking into stores and grabbing thousands of dollars of merchandise. Often times, these goods are then resold online. Nearly 70% of retailers reported a rise in organized retail crime last year, contributing to theft and losses of as much as $69 billion a year, according to the Retail Industry Leaders Association and the Buy Safe America Coalition.

In Colorado, union members are pushing for armed guards at Albertson's and Kroger locations. Some Starbucks workers have also been requesting security officers. Best Buy CEO Corie Barry commented last year that rising theft at its stores could make it more difficult to hire and retain workers.

While armed guards have long been common at jewelry stores and other high-end retailers, an increasing number of retailers are exploring the option. forbes.com

Newspaper Publishes How-to-Shoplift Guide
Australian university student newspaper defends publishing controversial how-to-shoplift guide

The article in the Australian university newspaper offered readers tips on how to shoplift

A student newspaper at Australia's University of Queensland is defending a controversial article that provided shoplifting tips to cash-strapped students.  The piece, "The Subtle Art of Shoplifting," was published in the student newspaper Semper Floreat on Saturday.

In the piece, the anonymous writer advised readers on "frifting," or "free shopping." As explained by the writer, frifting is "a legitimate action for the working class to take in ongoing class war."

Tips included wearing a mask and covering identifiable markers like piercings and tattoos. Frifters are advised to go to whichever self-serve machine is closest to the staff monitoring them and take off the metal tags.

As reported by Nine News, public officials quickly condemned the article. Queensland Education Minister Grace Grace said it ought to be withdrawn. Shadow Education Minister Christian Rowan said encouraging people to commit criminal offenses would lead to anarchy.

But the newspaper has refused to back down. Editor-in-chief William Kugelman wrote an op-ed saying that Semper Floreat stands by its "decision to publish the hypothetical safe shoplifting guide."

The entry included a response from the anonymous author, stating: "We're in a housing crisis, experiencing the highest cost of living and lowest wages rates since WW2, and yet the wealthiest keep (getting) wealthier - forcing people to live in tents, consolidating their monopolies on housing, starving people on stagnant levels of centrelink support and inadequate minimum wages."  foxnews.com

Response Times Increasing - Calls For Service Spike - Trying to Curtail High Rates of Violence
'Law-Enforcement Agencies Nationwide Facing Hiring Crisis With Fewer People Wanting to be Cops'

"I heard people say it's a perfect storm" Dallas Asst. Police Chief. Exacerbated by the nation's labor shortages, steep competition, mental-health struggles and negative perceptions about officers.

Dallas police aren't alone in those difficulties. A June 2021 national survey of 194 police agencies by the Police Executive Research Forum, a nonprofit of police executives mainly from large areas, showed a 45% increase in officer retirements and an 18% uptick in resignations from 2020 to 2021. The percentage decrease in staffing levels was most severe for agencies with 500 or more officers. Editor's Note: Big Cities hit the hardest. dallasnews.com

Police Staffing Shortages Since 2020 Have Fanned the Flames of Crime in Big Cities
More than 100 officers leave Seattle police this year

Seattle rocked by deadliest month in recent history in wake of defund police movement

Seattle saw its deadliest year in decades in 2020

Seattle's data on homicides follow a national trend from 2020. FBI data show murders increased by nearly 30% in 2020, marking the largest single-year increase in killings since the agency began tracking the crimes. The data show murders disproportionately affected Black Americans, at a more than 32% increase compared to 2019.

Experts pointed to the defund the police movement, the pandemic and its lockdowns, which upset daily life in unprecedented ways, and the Ferguson effect for the rise in crimes in 2020.

As crime increased in the city since 2020, the police department in Seattle has faced steep staffing shortages - a problem that has affected nearly all law enforcement agencies in King County,

Seattle is far from alone in dealing with police staffing issues - cities across the country have reported more of the same since the protests and riots of 2020 that called for police departments to be defunded. Philadelphia, for example, is bracing for at least 800 police department members to leave the force over the next few years while it's already operating at 20% below its targeted staffing level. And in Chicago, police reported the lowest number of employees in recent history at the end of March. foxnews.com

Getting Creative to Stop Violence
A New Bid to Crack the Code on Gun Violence

Amalgamated Bank and the nonprofit Guns Down America are trying a different way to use the financial system to clamp down on mass shootings.

A majority of shooters use credit and debit cards to acquire their guns, ammunition and body armor - and the companies behind those card networks have a unique vantage point to spot suspicious buying patterns before law enforcement, families or just about anyone else.

Back in 2018, I proposed that banks and credit card companies create a new "merchant category code" for gun-related transactions at stores that sell firearms, which would allow them to flag suspicious activity. After all, banks are legally obligated to scrub transactions to help identify domestic terrorism. Oddly enough, while the financial industry uses distinct codes for dozens of different types of merchants, there are none for gun stores.

Now, a financial firm - Amalgamated Bank - has been working behind the scenes to make the idea a reality. The bank, with the help of the advocacy group Guns Down America, recently reapplied to I.S.O., the standards agency, to create a new set of merchant category codes for gun sales. nytimes.com

State of Emergency in Texas, Arizona & D.C. Over Migrant Crisis
DC Mayor declares public emergency over migrants being bussed in from Texas
Washington D.C. is now in a state of emergency after Texas and Arizona sent thousands of migrants from their states to the nation's capital - and Mayor Muriel Bowser announced $10 million to create a new office dealing with this crisis.

A Democratic council member accused Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona during a press conference Thursday of creating the crisis and insisted District of Columbia should now be considered a 'border town.'

Her claims come after years of Republicans claiming that all towns in America are border towns because the migration crisis - coupled with drug trafficking - is spilling over and affecting communities across the nation.

So far, approximately 9,400 migrants have been bussed from Texas and Arizona to D.C. over the last nearly five months, according to Bowser's office. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has encountered more than 2 million migrants at the southern border in Fiscal Year 2022 after hitting a record-setting peak in May with 241,166 encounters in that month alone.

More than 2,100 migrants have been sent on 40 busloads from Texas to New York - and thousands more have arrived in D.C. over the last nearly five months. msn.com

No Post-COVID Return to the Office for Amazon
Amazon has no plan to make workers return to the office, CEO Andy Jassy says
Amazon CEO Andy Jassy isn't looking to force the company's workers back into the office anytime soon. "We don't have a plan to require people to come back," Jassy said at the Code Conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday. "But we're going to proceed adaptively as we learn."

The online retail giant announced last October that it would let individual managers and teams determine how much time they spend in the office, with Jassy saying at the time that "there is no one-size-fits all approach for how every team works best." And it appears that attitude will continue for the foreseeable future.

Jassy's stance may serve as a marker to the tech and corporate world, as companies look beyond the summer and intensify their efforts to bring workers back to the office

While the flexible policy applies to Amazon's corporate workers, the company also has thousands of delivery drivers and warehouse employees whose jobs do not allow them to work from home. Notably, a number of those are attempting to unionize in a quest for better working conditions. cnn.com

Did COVID Shutdowns Help or Hurt?
What scientists have learned from COVID lockdowns
Lockdown measures did what they were supposed to. When they were enforced rigorously enough to reduce people's social contacts sharply, they shrank COVID-19 outbreaks; several studies had demonstrated this.

Most scientists agree that lockdowns did curb COVID-19 deaths and that governments had little option but to restrict people's social contacts in early 2020, to stem SARS-CoV-2's spread and avert the collapse of health-care systems. "We needed to buy ourselves some time," says Lauren Meyers, a biological data scientist at the University of Texas at Austin.

At the same time, it's clear that lockdowns had huge costs, and there is debate about the utility of any subsequent lockdown measures. School and university closures disrupted education. Closing businesses contributed to financial and social hardship, mental ill health and economic downturns. "There's costs and benefits," says Samir Bhatt, a public-health statistician at Imperial College London and the University of Copenhagen. nature.com

Who should get the updated coronavirus vaccine booster now-and who should wait?

Is COVID-19 winding down? Scientists say no.


Uber Exec's Trial Will Have Massive Impact on Security Industry
Lawyers for Uber's Ex-Security Chief Say Company Scapegoated Him

A federal trial began on Wednesday for Joe Sullivan, a former federal prosecutor who is accused of not disclosing a data breach while at the company.

Federal prosecutors say Joe Sullivan obstructed justice when in 2016, as the chief of security for Uber, he failed to disclose a breach of driver and customer records to government regulators.

But Mr. Sullivan's lawyers say that he in no way concealed the incident and that claims that he broke the law stem from Uber's efforts to recast its image following the turbulent reign of the company's former chief executive Travis Kalanick.

Opening arguments began on Wednesday in a San Francisco federal court in what is expected to be a monthlong trial for Mr. Sullivan, who, in addition to obstruction of justice, is accused of concealing a felony. Many security experts believe that Mr. Sullivan, a former federal prosecutor, is the first executive at a company to face potential criminal liability for a data breach.

Corporate security officials say the trial's outcome could inform how they handle security incidents, including how they interact with hackers and when they reveal information to consumers and regulators.

"There is the threat of jail time. You can't put a company in jail. You can put an executive in jail. Now, that is on the table," said Chinmayi Sharma, a scholar in residence and lecturer at the Robert Strauss Center for International Security and Law at the University of Texas at Austin. nytimes.com

New Law Boosting Storefront Safety
Storefront Safety Council Celebrates New Law that Aims to Protect Outdoor Diners

Storefront Safety Council says new law in California creates insurance incentives for installation of safety barriers to protect outdoor diners and other pedestrians

As outdoor dining and similar streetside venues became commonplace throughout the U.S. during the pandemic, so too did deaths and injuries from vehicles crashing into those diners and pedestrians. California Assemblymember Dr. Bill Quirk (D-20) saw the same trend in his state and introduced legislation that created incentives for installation of safety barriers in the context of outdoor dining and related activities on streets, sidewalks, and parking lots. Quirk's bill, AB1989, was approved by Governor Gavin Newsom on August 26, 2022.

"Assemblymember Quirk used data from the Storefront Safety Council as part of the documentation showing how risks at outdoor dining areas have increased as such venues have become more common," explained storefront safety expert Rob Reiter, who also co-founded the Storefront Safety Council.

"Right now, outdoor diners, waitstaff, shoppers and others throughout the U.S. are sitting ducks when there is no proper barrier between them and vehicles," said Reiter. "This new law is meant to give property owners in California a financial incentive, in the form of reduced commercial property insurance costs, for installing bollards or similar standards-based barriers to protect people."

According to Storefront Safety Council data, which was reviewed and validated by Lloyd's of London in April 2022:

Storefront crashes occur more than 100 times per day in the U.S.
Nearly half (46%) of all storefront crashes result in injury, and 8% result in a fatality.
Each year in the U.S., as many as 16,000 people are injured and as many as 2,600 are killed in vehicle-into-building crashes. prweb.com

Bed Bath & Beyond CFO Faced Overwhelming Stress Before Suicide
Inside Bed Bath & Beyond, Concerns Over Mounting Stress for CFO

Retailer's leaders thought finance chief Gustavo Arnal was overwhelmed; Arnal had discussed taking a break before he died

In the weeks before Gustavo Arnal took his own life, there was growing concern among Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. officials and directors over the demands being placed on the chief financial officer and the stress of the intensifying financial crisis at the home-goods chain, according to people familiar with the matter.

Mr. Arnal told people that he was stressed, his friends said. He was putting in 18-hour days while he worked on the company's restructuring plans.

Mr. Arnal was discussing with the company the possibility of taking a break, the people said. On the morning of Aug. 31, Ms. Gove, Mr. Arnal and other executives announced that they had secured fresh financing and briefed investors on a major restructuring. Two days later, Mr. Arnal died from a fall at the 57-story New York City skyscraper where he lived with his wife, police said. The medical examiner determined it was a suicide.

His death and a shareholder's lawsuit alleging wrongdoing at the company have become tabloid fodder. The company is investigating and reviewing Mr. Arnal's emails; company officials have seen no evidence of fraud or wrongdoing, some of the people said.

His friend said he was under pressure at work but didn't discuss the details, said Mr. Zijderveld. "He's the sort of guy who carries the world on his shoulders," he said. wsj.com

DOJ: Former CFO of Claddagh Irish Pubs Parent Company Charged with Defrauding States Out of More Than $1 Million in Sales Tax Revenue
CLEVELAND - The former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of CDG Acquisition, LLC (CDG), a company registered in the State of Ohio, which owned "The Claddagh Irish Pubs" chain of 15 restaurants, was charged with defrauding multiple states of sales tax revenue where the restaurant chain operated.

Ciaran Dillon, 56, of Solon, Ohio, was named in the indictment and officially charged with two counts of wire fraud.

According to the indictment, from January 2010 through May 2018, the defendant, acting in his official capacity as CFO of CDG, directed a company accountant to pay certain states less sales tax than the true amount owed. The indictment states that based on the defendant's instruction, the accountant would edit the company's sales and sales tax figures, file false tax returns and pay states the amount instructed by the defendant.

In total, it is alleged that during this time, the defendant defrauded the States of Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin out of more than $1 million in sales tax revenue collected from CDG customers across fifteen restaurants. justice.gov

Calling on Industry Leaders to Shape Cybersecurity Incident Reporting
CISA to formally solicit industry feedback on cybersecurity incident reporting rules
Federal cyber officials will formally ask industry leaders "in the next couple of days" to help shape the regulatory structure for cybersecurity incident reporting, Jen Easterly, director of the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, said Wednesday.

The incident reporting framework follows the new law that President Biden signed in March requiring that critical infrastructure owners and operators to report major cyberattacks to CISA within 72 hours and ransomware attacks within 24 hours.

CISA has said that it will use the reports to rapidly deploy resources to victims under attack and share information with network defenders. Easterly, who spent four years working on cyber defense at Morgan Stanley prior to coming to CISA, emphasized that she wants to work with industry to create a smart regulatory apparatus that doesn't create problems for the private sector.

Easterly said that after CISA issues a request for information from the private sector, she intends to also host several listening sessions with industry to ensure the rule-making process is "consultative."

Throughout the interview at Billington, Easterly emphasized that while offensive cybersecurity is "sexy," she wants cyber defenders to understand that "defense is the new offense."

U.S. cybersecurity practitioners can compete with anyone on the basis of skills alone, Easterly said. But she cautioned that America may sometimes come in behind adversaries because of ethics. Easterly was followed to the stage at Billington by National Cyber Director Chris Inglis, who told the audience that the "sense of urgency continues to go up on a daily basis. cyberscoop.com

Ransomware Compromise via Extensive Supply Chains
Global companies say supply chain partners expose them to ransomware

A Trend Micro report reveals that 52% of global organizations have a supply chain partner that was hit by ransomware.

Global organizations say they are increasingly at risk of ransomware compromise via their extensive supply chains.

Out of 2,958 IT decision makers across 26 countries in North and South America, Europe, and APAC, 79% believe their partners and customers are making their organization a more attractive ransomware target, according to the latest research by Trend Micro.

Fifty-two percent of the global organizations surveyed say they have a supply chain partner that has been hit by ransomware. Supply chain and other partners include providers of IT hardware, software and services, open-source code repositories, and non-digital suppliers ranging from law firms and accountants to building maintenance providers. They make for a web of interdependent organizations.

"Supply chains are an attractive target because they can offer either a poorly defended access vector and/or an opportunity to multiply illicit profits by infecting many organizations through a single supplier," the research report notes.

An example of this is the compromise of IT management software provider Kaseya in 2021. Through a sophisticated attack, hackers exploited an internal software vulnerability to push out malicious updates to its managed service provider customers. They in turn infected downstream customers with ransomware. An estimated 1,500-2,000 organisations were impacted.

Another example is the Log4j vulnerability that saw supply chains experiencing difficulties when it came to keeping track of and patching flaws. Firms are still facing problems as they are unable to comprehensively locate the presence of Log4j across their systems, due to complex software dependencies, according to the Trend Micro research. csoonline.com

Cybersecurity & Third-Party Risk
Your vendors are likely your biggest cybersecurity risk
As speed of business increases, more and more organizations are looking to either buy companies or outsource more services to gain market advantage. With organizations expanding their vendor base, there is a critical need for holistic third-party risk management (TPRM) and comprehensive cybersecurity measures to assess how much risk vendors pose.
While organizations assess and manage risk on a multitude of layers, none present bigger threats to business resiliency than third-party risk and a lack of robust cybersecurity controls. Breaches and service interruptions tied to these risk areas have brought down critical systems of major organizations. In 2021, 53% of CISOs surveyed by Black Kite reported being hit by at least one ransomware attack.

It bears repeating: Cybersecurity and third-party risk are the two biggest problems facing your long-term viability. Businesses need to be able to tackle these risk vectors individually to gain a complete view of their risk profile. A cross-functional process is essential to managing the overlap between these risk areas to better protect your organization and increase workflow efficiency.

Ensuring that the cybersecurity practices of your vendors align with your organization's standards is critical to safeguarding your systems and data. In fact, it is just as important as how stable the business is or how well it delivers products and services. helpnetsecurity.com

The Amazon Hiring Spree is Over
Amazon CEO Charts Slower Hiring Following Pandemic Boom

Andy Jassy says e-commerce company will likely scale back on its rate of hiring and sees healthcare as a growth opportunity

Amazon.com Chief Executive Andy Jassy said his company is slowing down the rate at which it is hiring new employees after the pandemic boom may have led to overexpansion.

Amazon went on a massive hiring spree in recent years to keep up with the customer demand and most of that growth was in the company's fulfillment networks. Mr. Jassy told a conference that the company will likely be scaling back on that rate of hiring.

Since taking over as CEO a year ago from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Mr. Jassy has been working on cutting back on the excesses of the company's breakneck expansion of its e-commerce operation during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year, Mr. Jassy and his team have attempted to shed some warehouse space by subletting it out as well as deferring the construction of new warehouses. Mr. Jassy has also closed down many of the company's bricks-and-mortar retail stores.

Other tech companies have been seeking to rein in expenses amid growing concerns about slow economic growth, inflation and advertising. At the Code Conference on Tuesday night, Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai said he wants to make the company 20% more productive. In a July memo to staff, Mr. Pichai had said that Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc., would be slowing the pace of hiring for the year.

Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc. has said it would shrink some teams as it adjusts priorities, and Microsoft Corp. has been asking teams to work on controlling costs following a round of layoffs affecting less than 1% of its employees.

Social-media company Snap Inc. last week said it would slash about 20% of its staff after growing its head count by around 65% since the end of 2020. Online brokerage Robinhood Markets Inc. last month said it was cutting about 23% of its full-time staff after a sharp slowdown in customer trading activity. wsj.com

Global Digital Counterfeit Hotspots
Fakes around the world: WTR launches hubs focused on physical and online counterfeit hotspots
In the first, expert law firm practitioners in over 45 countries have shared what rights holders need to know when undertaking counterfeit enforcement in their jurisdiction. On top of that, and perhaps most crucially, they identify the specific marketplaces in each country that they advise brand owners should monitor. In some cases, those markets are 'high risk' areas and are notorious for counterfeits. In other cases, they are lower risk marketplaces that have had issues with specific types of fake good.

Some of the highlights of the series include experts from Licks Attorneys revealing 24 counterfeit hotspots in Brazil, Anand & Anand identifying 13 in India, ATG Law Firm revealing 12 in Turkey, and Tilleke & Gibbins identifying nine in Vietnam.

In the second hub, law firm professionals in 20 countries have shared their experiences of fighting fake goods in the digital environment, and revealed the online marketplaces that they suggest should be on policing radars. Crucially, we have attempted to avoid the major global platforms and asked them to focus instead on domestic marketplaces that rights holders may be less aware of.

The countries covered come from all corners of the globe - from Vietnam and Saudi Arabia to France and Brazil. worldtrademarkreview.com

Valdosta, GA: Several arrested in Retail Theft operation
A recent joint operation between the Valdosta Police Department and the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office resulted in more than a dozen arrests related to retail theft. The two departments swung into action Sept. 6-7 and worked together with the organized retail crime offices of major retailers, according to a sheriff's office statement. The two-day operation led to the seizure of four stolen firearms, methamphetamine, alpha PVP and several thousand dollars of stolen merchandise, authorities said. The sheriff's office identified suspects using social media to resell suspected stolen merchandise, and in following through on that case, a Valdosta man was arrested on local warrants, as well as being found in possession of several thousand dollars of merchandise identified as stolen from local stores, the sheriff's office said. Two more Valdosta men were found to be traveling throughout Florida and Georgia to steal merchandise from retailers and then resell it through social media. One was arrested on local warrants, as well as found to be in possession of stolen merchandise, and is also charged with being a felon in possession of a sawed-off shotgun, after a search of his home. Fourteen more people are charged with offenses ranging from shoplifting to various drug and weapons charges to felony obstruction of an officer, according to the statement. valdostadailytimes.com

Bellevue, WA: Anti-crime operations leads to over 50 arrests since January

Recently, two suspects were stopped for trafficking stolen goods during an emphasis patrol, which consisted of uniformed officers, the Downtown Unit and undercover detectives. Officers were alerted by loss prevention that a vehicle arrived in the parking lot, which was associated with a recent theft of a pressure washer at Home Depot in Bothell. BPD detectives looked on as one of the suspects sold a pressure washer to another person in the parking lot, said BPD. Detectives located pictures of the Bothell theft, and noticed the suspects wore the same clothing. Both suspects were arrested and booked into jail, following a release the next day. Specific anti-crime operations are developed as sector captains in the city analyze crime statistics from the department's Transparency and Accountability dashboards in order to identify hotspots for criminal activity.  bellevuereporter.com

Cumberland County, PA: 5 arrested after Wednesday night Ulta retail theft and police chase on I-83
Five Maryland residents are in police custody after a retail theft and police case in Dauphin and Cumberland Counties that occurred on Sept. 7. Lower Paxton Township Police responded to reports of a retail theft at an Ulta Beauty Store on Jonestown Road in Lower Paxton Township just after 7 p.m. Ulta employees reported that two females had just stolen a large number of fragrances and other merchandise from the store. They had fled from the store in a black sedan with out-of-state registration plates. Police say the store has previously been the target of multiple out-of-state organized retail theft rings over the last two years. While responding to the dispatch, officials say patrol units found the sedan in the area of Jonestown Road and tried to pull over the car. Instead of pulling over, police say the car drove off west on Jonestown Road before turning onto Interstate 83 southbound lanes.

Officials say police units gave chase after the car, following it into Cumberland County and the area of New Cumberland. The black sedan tried to pass a tractor tailor by driving past it on the shoulder of the road. However, during the maneuver, the driver of the car lost control and struck the guard rail. The car reportedly bounced off and collided with the truck before crashing back into the guard rail a final time and coming to a rest on the shoulder of the road. Police say two female passengers tried to flee the area on foot but were quickly apprehended. Three additional suspects were taken into custody without incident. Police say merchandise from the Ulta Store, as well as the Under Armour Outlet in Derry Township, was observed in plain view in the backseat as well. fox43.com

Nashville, TN: Store owner threatened after shoplifters steal designer bags
A Nashville consignment shop owner said she chased some suspected Louis Vuitton thieves. Then, she found out the hard way that they were armed. Designer Finds is a consignment shop that's been in Green Hills for nearly two decades. On Wednesday, one of the owners encountered a scary situation. "After shopping for a little bit, and pretending to shop, they grabbed the bags and ran out the door, and I ran after them, which I should not do, and I do not recommend," the owner said. Then, it took a dangerous turn. "When I and got to their vehicle, the one girl in the passenger seat did pull me into the car, and at that point, they said that basically, they were going to run me over, and the girl started the car, and we went down the road, and they pulled guns." Eventually, the victim bailed from the car. "It was not smart, but at least now I'm hoping maybe something will be done about it." The duo got away with two Louis Vuitton duffle bags. She believes they checked out the store the day before as well. newschannel5.com

Flagstaff, AZ: Officials ID Gas Station Burglary suspect shot and killed by Police
Officials have identified the man killed by Flagstaff law enforcement during an alleged robbery Wednesday as 51-year-old Donald Wayne Henry of Missouri. A Flagstaff Police Department spokesperson said Henry was seen breaking windows and taking items from a gas station on North Highway 89 and Cummings Street and allegedly threatening to stab people at another nearby business. A Flagstaff police officer confronted Henry the man in the middle of the intersection. Officials say Henry produced a screwdriver and body camera footage shows him advancing toward one of the responding officers multiple times despite commands to stop. A Coconino County Sheriff's deputy can then be seen firing at Henry as he charged, while another officer fired his Taser. Henry was struck and later died. The incident is being investigated by the Northern Arizona Officer-Involved Shooting Team. knau.org

South Fulton, GA: Update: Arrest made in deadly convenience store robbery
South Fulton police have announced an arrest in the murder of a popular store clerk as the search continues for a second suspect. Investigators are looking for Antwan Warthen in connection with the case. SFPD Lt. Ebony Bullock told FOX 5's Deidra Dukes police arrested Warthen's alleged accomplice in California last month. According to police, Warthen and the suspect who is now in custody, shot and killed a clerk at the Quick Pick Food Mart on Welcome All Road on July 26. They discovered 44-year-old Tony Zenabe suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Medics pronounced him dead on scene. A co-worker told reporters Zenabe was shot despite doing everything the robbers demanded. Warthen is wanted for multiple armed robberies. Police tied Warthen and the other suspect to an earlier robbery which happened minutes before the deadly shooting, about a mile and a half away at the Dollar General store on Roosevelt Highway. That is where the suspects were captured on surveillance. Detectives are now turning to the public for help, locating the suspect in hopes of generating leads that will lead to an arrest in the case. fox5atlanta.com

Dillon, SC: Police officer and Walmart worker took bribes to drop shoplifting cases
A South Carolina police officer took money in exchange for dropping shoplifting cases, officials said. In at least two instances, the officer conspired with a worker at a Walmart in Dillon to accept bribes in exchange for dropping shoplifting charges, according to the S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED). Now, both the officer and Walmart employee are facing charges, officials wrote Sept. 7 in a news release. Walmart and the Dillon Police Department didn't immediately respond to McClatchy News' requests for comment on Sept. 8. The case dates back to Aug. 3, when Dillon police were called to a Walmart on Enterprise Road. After a shoplifting suspect was arrested, the officer and a Walmart asset protection investigator published or threatened to "publish accusations of a crime or personal details," officials said, and also "colluded to accept a bribe." The two "agreed not to pursue prosecution of the criminal charge in exchange for $1,000.00," according to SLED. The officer also asked the Dillon County Municipal Court to abandon the case, an act that violated his "official responsibilities and duties," state investigators wrote. Similar allegations surfaced against the officer and Walmart worker after a shoplifting suspect was given a ticket on Aug. 27. The two face multiple charges, including blackmail or extortion, criminal conspiracy and acceptance of bribe by officers. The officer also was charged with misconduct in office. The officer, who is accused of using his position to continue criminal acts, no longer works for the Dillon Police Department. amp.newsobserver.com

Portland, OR: Retail crimes soar in Portland, businesses unhappy with local governments
Portland-area retailers are overwhelmingly dissatisfied with how their local governments are handling theft and property crime, according to a recent survey conducted by the Organized Retail Crime Association of Oregon (ORCAOR.) The survey, which mostly consists of big-box stores in Portland, found that 95% of respondents were unhappy with how property crime is addressed. It comes as nearly 80% reported "theft had gone up significantly" at their business over the past 18 months, and another 80% felt there wasn't adequate police response for crimes. "We've seen an increase in assaults, in drug use within the stores, threats, individuals threatening with weapons," said Jeremy Girard, the president of ORCAOR, who conducted the survey in late spring. FOX 12 spent several months speaking with loss-prevention mangers at big box stores in Portland, but their corporate offices denied the managers' requests to be interviewed for this story. The loss prevention officers told FOX 12 that retail employees are regularly threatened and even sometimes attacked. It's also common for thieves to boldly walk out of stores with carts overflowing with unpaid merchandise. "Some of the feedback I've gotten from retailers is that they feel hopeless right now," Girard said. Some big names in restaurants and coffee have recently closed in Portland, as well. Starbucks closed two of its Portland locations, citing employee safety concerns. Cracker Barrel last month announced it was abruptly shutting its restaurant on Hayden Island. kptv.com

Vic Jacinto, U.S. Safety and Security Manager, Ikea
8 industry leaders on the best career advice they've ever received

Lessons from Ikea, DSW, Patagonia and more

Industry leaders shared lessons and best practices this summer as part of NRF Supply Chain 360, NRF PROTECT and NRF Nexus, on topics including reverse logistics, fraud prevention and company culture. We asked a few of them to share the best piece of career advice they've ever received.

Vic Jacinto is U.S. safety and security manager for Ikea

A store manager once asked me what I wanted to do (with my career). It caught me off guard since nobody had ever asked me that. That store manager gave me some great advice, including to find something that I did well - the thing that would make me stand out. That piece of advice has stuck with me since. I feel like I'm still on that journey to find that "thing" that makes me stand out - but I'm enjoying every minute of it.  nrf.com
