The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

WSJ Podcast Features Ben Dugan & the ORC Fight
'How to Stop a $45 Billion Crime Spree' by The Journal

A brazen kind of shoplifting is plaguing America's retail stores, where people fill up garbage bags with items and simply walk out the door. WSJ's Rebecca Ballhaus explains how organized crime rings orchestrate the shoplifting. And Ben Dugan, the head of CVS' investigative unit, describes what he does to fight crime at his stores.

'Ben Dugan Works for CVS. His Job Is Battling a $45 Billion Crime Spree'
Retailers are spending millions a year to battle organized crime rings that steal from their stores in bulk and then peddle the goods online, often on Amazon.com Inc.'s retail platform, according to retail investigators, law-enforcement officers and court documents. It is a menace that has been supercharged by the pandemic and the rapid growth of online commerce that has accompanied it.

The Coalition of Law Enforcement and Retail, a trade association, which Mr. Dugan heads, estimates that organized retail theft accounts for around $45 billion in annual losses for retailers these days, up from $30 billion a decade ago. At CVS, reported thefts have ballooned 30% since the pandemic began.

Mr. Dugan's team, working with law enforcement, expects to close 73 e-commerce cases this year involving $104 million of goods stolen from multiple retailers and sold on Amazon. That compares with 27 cases in 2020, involving half the total. CVS has doubled its crime team to 17 over the past two years and purchased its own surveillance van with 360-degree cameras and a high-powered telescope.

New ORC Task Force in Illinois Continues to Make Headlines
(Update) Multi-agency task force will fight organized retail crime in Illinois
Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul has announced a partnership between public and private entities designed to combat the increase in organized retail crime. The Attorney General's Organized Retail Crime Task Force is the first large-scale, public-private collaboration of its kind in Illinois and is designed to foster cooperation among retailers, online marketplaces, law enforcement agencies and state's attorneys dedicated to targeting organized retail crime enterprises.

Organized retail crime has increased dramatically over the last two years. According to the Coalition of Law Enforcement and Retail, organized retail theft accounts for $45 billion in annual losses. The problem has only increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, with CVS estimating a 30% increase in thefts.

The Organized Retail Crime Task Force is comprised of career investigators and attorneys from the Attorney General's Criminal Enforcement Division working in concert with the U.S. Secret Service, the Department of Homeland Security, the Illinois State Police, local police departments, the Cook County Sheriff's office, the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police and the Illinois Association of State's Attorneys. The task force will consult with retail advocacy associations and national retailers including CVS, Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, Walgreens and Walmart.

The Organized Retail Crime Task Force will serve as a vehicle allowing multiple jurisdictions to share information and resources. The task force will allow the Illinois Attorney General's office to utilize data and tips provided by retailers and partner across jurisdictions with law enforcement agencies to investigate organized retail crimes and trace thefts to the source. securitymagazine.com

National Guard Assistance Requested in D.C.
US Capitol Police request DC National Guard assistance ahead of September 18 right-wing rally
US Capitol Police have requested DC National Guard assistance ahead of planned right-wing protests scheduled for this Saturday at the Capitol, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Wednesday.

"We have received a request from Capitol Police for some assistance for this weekend's protests, scheduled protests. I'm not going to detail the specific request," Kirby said. "We're doing the analysis, we are in receipt of it, we're analyzing it, and if it can be validated and supported, we'll do that and we'll look at the sourcing inside the department as to what's most appropriate."

Kirby would not give details but said "it is not an exorbitant ask," adding that "it's not of a particularly large size or major capability. I think it's more in the form of some manpower support."

US Capitol Police said Monday they are in touch with the military ahead of the protests, as the Capitol Police Board approved the return of security fencing around the Capitol building. cnn.com

DEBATE OF THE WEEK: Should we Defund the Police?

In the wake of the death of George Floyd, protests sprung up arguing "defund the police." What this precisely means depends on who you talk to (literally stop funding the police or engage in widespread police reform) but it has become one of the most polarizing issues of the last year. Wilfred Reilly, associate professor of political science at Kentucky State University, and Geo Maher, political theorist and Visiting Associate Professor at Vassar College, join us to debate the topic of defunding the police across America, with guest host Celeste Headlee.

Defunding the Police Is Asinine and Counterproductive | Opinion
My statement is that defunding the police in any real sense of that term is one of the worst ideas in the discourse right now. This is not a new idea. We saw this attempted during the 1960s and we saw the Ferguson-effect police pullback in 2014/2015. In practice, crime has surged literally every time it has been tried in the past, and this is why 80 percent to 90 percent of black people oppose police defunding.

So to spell it out a bit, by "defunding the police," I mean what the phrase logically implies: the removal of a substantial amount of money from police budgets, either transferred back into the general city budget or to other social services. So less budget and fewer cops and stops. We're talking about the actual municipal police budget. This is what most of the "defund the police" advocates seem to be stumping for, at the very least.

So The New York Times recently ran a famous, widely cited op-ed that was simply headlined: "Yes, we mean literally abolish the police." The problem is that this isn't a new idea, and doing it invariably results in a massive surge in serious crime. Last year, when we saw political protests and riots all year and "defund the police" became a catchphrase, we also saw murders surge over the 20,000 mark for the first time since 1995. You can try arguing that most departments haven't yet defunded, although that's not true: New York City alone cut a billion dollars from its police budget and Los Angeles $150 million. This was certainly tied to the reduction of stops and reduction in interactions. That'll be the main consequences of defunding. The commission on COVID-19 and criminal justice traces that 2020 crime surge back to "late May and early June of 2020."

Many police departments began to pull back following George Floyd's killing. In Minneapolis itself, the Minneapolis Police Department traces an 80 percent decrease in traffic stops and 39 percent decrease in human stops back specifically to the week of May 25. May 25 was the literal day Mr. Floyd died. I don't want to go on and on with this, but this happened following the Ferguson riots six years back. A Chicago magazine ran the headline, "police stops down 90 percent as crime skyrockets." You go back to the 1960s and crime increased 600 percent between 1963 and 1993.

I am perfectly willing, as I think my opponent is, to talk about something like increased funding for social work in any practical, non-semantic sense. Defunding the police is an insane idea. newsweek.com

Leading Cause of Police Officer Deaths? COVID
COVID Now the Leading Cause of U.S. Law Enforcement Deaths
According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, 182 law enforcement officers died of COVID-19 last year. Add the 71 officers who have died in the first half of this year from the virus, and COVID is now the leading cause of law enforcement officer line-of-duty fatalities.

The 71 deaths reported in the first six months of this year represent a slight decrease from the 76 COVID deaths reported during the same time period in 2020. In all, 132 members of U.S. law enforcement agencies are known to have died from COVID in 2021.

Despite the alarming rate of deaths, police officers and other first responders are some of the most hesitant Americans to get vaccinated for the coronavirus, and the number of their cases continues to rise, reports the Associated Press.

Although there aren't any statistics on the vaccination rate for all U.S. first responders, individual police and fire departments across the nation say the rate of inoculation among their employees is much lower than the national rate of nearly 74% of adults who have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. For example, the Austin, Texas Police Department estimates about 50% of its force is vaccinated, reports KXAN. The Charleston, West Virginia Police Department says more than 50% of its employees have been vaccinated for COVID-19, reports WCHS.

Despite the high rate of deaths among law enforcement officers, national and local police unions are fighting vaccine mandates, reports KTLA.

When the vaccines received emergency authorization by the FDA, first responders were among the first to be authorized to receive the shot. privateofficerbreakingnews.blogspot.com

The Pandemic's Impact on Grocery Chains
From COVID to Product Shortages to Labor Supply, Grocery Stores Adapt To String of Challenges
In an interview with PYMNTS, IGA President and CEO John Ross admitted grocery stores have been lucky to an extent with the ability to stay open during the pandemic, compared to so many other 'non-essential' businesses around the world that were forced to shut down or curtail operations."

A World of Challenges

One of the toughest challenges IGA has faced has been recruiting enough workers to keep its stores open at a time when employees are increasingly worried for their safety.

Ross said IGA's own research came up with some surprising reasons why people no longer want to work in grocery stores. While the issue of safety ranked fairly high, he said the number one reason people are avoiding grocery stores is because they are looking for a better job.

Grocery stores can be excused for that lapse given the mountain of problems on their plate. Hogging the headlines for months on end is the ongoing supply challenges that has affected almost every kind of business.

That's not to say it's entirely bad news. The shortage of goods has actually increased demand at most IGA stores, and the company has seen "spectacular growth" in its bottom line over the last two years. But Ross believes the company's growth could have been even stronger if not for the impact of supply challenges.

Being independent does have some advantages though. One of the ways IGA has learned how to compete is by stepping up its investment in consumer-facing technology, digitizing the customer experience to offer a more personalized service to its customers than larger rivals can do.

"This combination of rethinking our value proposition and the investment of digital technology, we call it forming a digital relationship with the consumer," Ross explained. "If we can connect to them in that powerful way online, the total loyalty proposition is so much better and that preps us to compete in the long run, whether it's against Kroger, Safeway or Amazon." pymnts.com

Kroger is back at Full Go on COVID Safety Protocols
Kroger again requires employees to wear masks, regardless of vaccination
Kroger is again requiring all employees to wear face coverings. The Cincinnati-based grocer announced Wednesday that it will again update its masking policy, requiring all associates and contractors to wear a mask when in our stores, offices and other facilities, regardless of vaccination status.

Previously, employees were required to wear masks only if they were unvaccinated. Masks will remain optional for customers, but are strongly encouraged, company officials said. Where there are local and state mandates, company officials said they continue to abide by those.

"Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, The Kroger Family of Companies' most urgent priority has been the safety of our associates and customers. We have adhered to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Marc Watkins and listened to our associates and customers to guide our policies," a statement from the company said in part.

Stores will continue to implement enhanced cleaning, and promote physical distancing across all facilities. Additionally, the grocer will offer associates a $100 one-time payment for receiving the recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. wlwt.com

Kroger Division Impact: Worker shortages in the pandemic
Harris Teeter grocery stores will be closing early 'until further notice.'
Harris Teeter will temporarily shorten all store operating hours from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. starting Wednesday, according to the company website. The change is in place until further notice.

The service counter, and meat and fish counters will close at 8 p.m., according to the company. Other amenities will close at 7 p.m.

The Matthews-based grocery chain cited the labor shortage affecting the country nationwide during the coronavirus pandemic, as first reported by Grocerying. Some stores had been open until 10 p.m. or 11 p.m.

Harris Teeter, a Kroger Co. subsidiary, has about 35,000 workers in more than 250 stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, Florida and the District of Columbia.

The worker shortage has affected industries from Amazon to Lowe's, as well as restaurants, which have offered sign-on bonuses, wage increases and other benefits as incentives to appeal to job seekers. pilotonline.com

New York's Hero Act - Clock is Ticking
New York employers must implement coronavirus safety plans
Employers in New York state must implement the coronavirus safety plans they were required to devise earlier in the year, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Sept. 6.

The state's HERO Act, signed into law in May, obligated businesses to plan for employee health screenings, masking and social distancing requirements, workplace hygiene stations, workplace cleaning protocol, quarantine protocol and building airflow technology, according to the governor's office. Alternatively, employers may adopt the state's model plan.

The law requires employers to implement those plans when the governor designates COVID-19 a highly contagious communicable disease that presents a serious risk of harm to the public health, which Hochul did last week.

While the state didn't make a deadline clear, attorneys from law firm Lowenstein Sandler wrote in a client alert that "the Act's standard advises employers to 'promptly activate' their safety plans." Additionally, unless extended, the designation of COVID-19 as a highly contagious communicable disease will expire Sept. 30, the attorneys said. hrdive.com

'Cautiously optimistic': COVID hospitalizations appear to plateau, DFW Hospital Council leader says
There have consistently been about 3,500 patients hospitalized daily with COVID-19 in the 19-county area that covers Dallas-Fort Worth, the council leader, Steve Love, said in an update with the Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce. "It does appear that the cases may begin to come down in Dallas County, which means hospitalizations will hopefully come down in the short term," Love said. "I define short term as probably 10 days to two weeks." dallasnews.com

Viewpoint: Should Your Company Implement an Employee Vaccination Mandate?
So an increasing number of organizations have been mandating that their workers get vaccinated, and many others are trying to decide whether to follow suit. (President Joe Biden announced Sept. 9 a series of proposals to combat the COVID-19 pandemic more aggressively, including plans for a new rule requiring employers with 100 or more employees to mandate that their workers be vaccinated or undergo weekly testing. Read SHRM Online's coverage here.)

Those still deliberating their options should realize that their decision could have a significant impact on their short-term productivity and profits as well as on their long-term ability to attract and retain needed talent. With that in mind, we recommend that they take the following actions: Continue Reading

25% of Americans Unvaccinated - Not High Enough to Curb It
Pandemic frustrations zero in on unvaccinated Americans
As cases approach winter levels, the U.S. has been left to decide how to deal with and treat the millions who still haven't received their shots, months after they became widely available.

In response, some have resorted to mocking and joking about the unvaccinated, an approach public health and psychology experts say is unlikely to change the minds of both hard-line activists or the vaccine hesitant.

Federal public health officials have repeatedly labeled the surge a "pandemic of the unvaccinated" as a vast majority of hospitalizations and deaths occur among those who never got a shot. thehill.com

Commit to Compliance & Embrace Best Practices & Training
Hotlines & Reward Programs Play a Vital Role in Compliance

SEC Issues $114 Million to Two Whistleblowers

SEC whistleblower program has provided more than $1 billion in awards

With the latest awards, the SEC whistleblower program has paid out more than $1 billion to 207 whistleblowers since issuing its first award in 2012, the agency said. That marks a milestone for the SEC whistleblower program created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act.

The SEC announced the awards Wednesday but didn't name the cases involving two companies that the awards are connected to and didn't identify the tipsters, in keeping with its policy.

Under the program, a whistleblower can receive an award totaling between 10% and 30% of the fines levied in SEC civil enforcement actions or a related agency's actions stemming from a tip, assuming the fines total more than $1 million.

"Today's announcement underscores the important role that whistleblowers play in helping the SEC detect, investigate and prosecute potential violations of the securities laws," SEC Chairman Gary Gensler said in a statement.

Reaching the $1 billion mark is significant for a whistleblower award program that was only implemented in 2011, said Erika Kelton, a partner at law firm Phillips & Cohen LLP who represents whistleblowers. "Because it is that kind of headline-grabbing number, I do think that would generate and encourage more people to step forward," she said.

The awards and the milestone are another reminder that companies need to commit to compliance and ensure they address issues raised internally, according to Gregory Keating, a whistleblower defense attorney for employers at law firm Epstein Becker & Green PC. "For employers, this is a clarion call that you need to embrace best practices and training," he said. wsj.com

Department Stores - E-Comm - Grocery & Furniture Drove August Sales
America's Spending Wave Is Yet to Hit

Retail sales were strong last month despite the Delta variant. What happens if the Delta threat fades?

The Commerce Department on Thursday reported that retail sales rose 0.7% in August from a month earlier. Even after taking account of downward revisions to July sales, that was far better than the 0.8% decline that economists expected to see.

The gains were fairly broad-based. The three retailing categories that registered a sales drop were car dealers, electronics and appliance stores, and a group that includes stores such as sporting goods retailers. Those declines were due to supply-chain problems rather than a Covid-19-inspired damping of consumers' willingness to spend.

The one place where the Delta variant did appear to leave a mark was at eating and drinking establishments, which were even in August with a month earlier. Travel-related services categories aren't included in the retail sales report, but private data show that spending on flights and hotels also slipped last month.

What Thursday's report suggests is that rather than clamping down on their spending, many people may have merely shifted it. Department stores, nonstore retailers (a category dominated by Amazon.com ), furniture stores and grocery stores were among those registering significant sales gains.

But if sales can stay solid despite Delta, one can only imagine what might happen when the virus threat really fades. wsj.com

The Shipping Crisis Continues
An all-time high of 61 cargo ships are stuck waiting off the California coast, as shipping ports hit their 4th record backup in three weeks

61 container ships are stuck outside California ports, worsening shipping delays and costs.

Key ports in Southern California have hit a fourth record in less than three weeks, as shipping delays surge past early pandemic levels.

On Wednesday, 61 cargo ships were stuck at anchor or in drift areas off of Los Angeles and Long Beach ports. The ports are currently dealing with 140 total ship in the ports, including 87 freighters, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California.

In late August, the ports hit an all-time high not seen since February, when the onset of the pandemic and panic-buying wreaked havoc on global supply chains.

The queue is a result of COVID-19-related disruptions, and holiday-buying surges, paired with a national labor shortage. Port of Los Angeles data indicates that ships' average wait times have increased to 8.5 days. freightwaves.com

Biden's Stance on Russia Leading to Cybercrime Crackdown?
Russia is fully capable of shutting down cybercrime

With internet blocks and high-profile arrests, Russia shows it can crack down on cybercrime when properly motivated. New analysis suggests the Biden administration's sanctions may be providing some motivation.

As a result of a flurry of ransomware attacks that impacted the United States infrastructure,
the United States hit Russia in April 2021 with both sanctions and the expulsion of diplomatic/intelligence personnel from the United States, tying the diplomatic actions to the criminal actions in a clear and unambiguous signal: the tolerance of the United States was approaching its end point.

In June, at the summit referenced in Insikt Group's analysis and then again in July 2021 when
Biden held a telephone conference call with Putin, a similar message was delivered, unambiguously, by Biden. Biden commented to reporters, "I made it very clear to him that the United States expects, when a ransomware operation is coming from his soil even though it's not sponsored by the state, we expect them to act if we give them enough information to act on who that is."

It isn't as if Russia can't control their internet gateways across which these cyber crimes are being committed. To wit: On September 2, 2021, with the Russian election fast approaching and the efforts of Putin to silence dissent in overdrive, Roskomnadzor blocked six providers of virtual private networks to the Russian market (Hola! VPN, ExpressVPN, KeepSolid VPN Unlimited, Nord VPN, Speedify VPN, IPVanish VPN); the organization had previously excluded two others, VyprVPN and OperaVPN. Roskomnadzor claims they blocked the VPN services due to "illegal activities, including those related to the distribution of drugs, child pornography, extremism and suicidal tendencies."

Russia is fully capable of arresting and prosecuting cyber criminals operating within their geographic and virtual internet footprint. The bar is high for instances of cybercrime that will cause the Russian government to take action. But clearly, two officers facilitating the West's investigation into Russian cybercriminals off the record and allegedly for millions of dollars, met that bar.

Time will tell if the relationship between Russian cybercriminals and the Russian Federation cyber entities will evolve in a manner that quiets the former and their criminal activities. If not,
the potential for action by U.S. government entities should be expected. csoonline.com

Cybercriminals in Lockstep March With You to the Cloud
How Attackers Invest in Cloud-Focused Cybercrime

Study reveals active underground market for access credentials to tens of thousands of cloud accounts & resources.

For cybercriminals, the cloud is an environment abundant with poorly secured enterprise data, applications, and other online assets.

IBM's X-Force threat intelligence team analyzed the cloud threat landscape for a yearlong period starting in the second quarter of 2020. The team's research shows attackers have sharply increased their focus on cloud targets as enterprises accelerated their adoption of SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS over the past year.

IBM X-Force discovered some 30,000 cloud credentials potentially available for sale on Dark Web forums. More than 70% of credentials advertised for sale offered Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) access to cloud resources. Prices for these credentials ranged from a few dollars to more than $15,000 per credential.

The factors influencing prices for cloud access credentials include the level of access a credential potentially offers - privileged access credentials were pricier than those offering less privileged access - and the amount of credit associated with an account.

Two-thirds of cloud breaches investigated were caused by poorly configured APIs. IBM incident responders also uncovered virtual machines and other cloud resources deployed with default security settings, or with misconfigurations that left them vulnerable to exploits and abuse. darkreading.com

'Follow the Money' - It's Getting Harder
Understanding the Cryptocurrency-Ransomware Connection

According to Fortinet, by the end of 2020, there were as many as 17,200 devices reporting ransomware each day.

Ransomware was widespread long before cryptocurrency came along, but in recent years, both have skyrocketed in tandem. Because cryptocurrency is difficult to trace, cybercriminals have rapidly switched to it as their preferred method for ransom payments. In fact, DarkSide, the group behind the high-profile attack on Colonial Pipeline, purportedly raked in $90 million in Bitcoin ransom payments before shutting down in May.

So, why is this happening? And what do you need to know? Read on. - The appeal of cryptocurrency

For bad actors extorting money from victim organizations via ransomware, they typically had to rely in the past on wire transfer services or other forms of payment using regular currency. While these got the job done, they also came with a paper trail - a very traceable paper trail, in most cases. And that made it easy for the FBI to track the bad actors down.

These days, almost all ransomware attackers demand payments via some form of cryptocurrency, which makes it a lot harder to identify who the actual person behind the keyboard is and it doesn't leave the same kind of paper trail. It's also faster - payments can be made almost instantly. For bad actors, this kind of convenience is a no-brainer.

Cryptocurrency also makes it easier to diversify across payment platforms and demand payments in several smaller amounts paid out to different digital wallets, which again all goes back to making it hard for law enforcement to trace. They can also diversify in terms of the coins and platforms they're using.

Is Your Company Safe from Cyberattacks?

Three ways to keep your organization safe from cyberattacks
Let's examine three cybersecurity challenges that are seemingly unrelated, but deeply intertwined below the surface. In each case, the underlying problems would greatly benefit from a policy of improved communication.

First, we must understand our technology stacks. This is the collection of IT infrastructure that includes everything from operating systems and programming languages to servers, data storage, application monitoring tools, business intelligence solutions, and more. For CISOs, juggling the vast scale of a tech stack and the attackers using increasingly sophisticated techniques calls for a new approach to security to keep systems, data, and devices safe.

Second, we need a new approach to the firehose of information hurtling toward us. We've all heard the saying that if everything is an emergency, nothing is. We get alerts from our development platforms, the Continuous Integration system, the security monitoring tools, even our watches. Somewhat paradoxically, this world of constant notifications has conditioned us to ignore alerts. Addressing this issue seems simple-prioritize the notifications that matter-but the sheer number of alerts and their associated false alarms means thousands of warnings go unacknowledged, and many companies aren't as secure as they think they are. Responding to alerts must become automated, and for that to happen, we must put systems in place that can scale with the people monitoring for those alerts.

Third, we need to create a culture of follow-through to ensure issues are resolved. As we saw in the major breaches this year, seemingly innocuous alerts have the power to start a chain of events, leading to massive cyberattacks. The attackers who developed the Sunburst malware spent more than a year inside their target organization before being identified, highlighting the importance of cooperation and attention to a proactive cybersecurity program. helpnetsecurity.com

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
CPTED for Cannabis Businesses Pt. I
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED, is a method of crime prevention that involves controlling the area surrounding a business and creating strong ties with the local community. CPTED, when practiced effectively, is one of the most successful crime prevention applications for any business, but these strategies can be especially useful for high-risk businesses like cannabis businesses. Utilizing CPTED is a form of proactive security that can deter potential criminals before they commit a crime through facility design and premises management.

First conceptualized in 1971-1972, CPTED can be divided into four key principals identified as "First Generation": Territoriality; Natural Surveillance; Image and Milieu; and Access Control.

CPTED for Cannabis Retail

For cannabis dispensaries who want their properties to
be welcoming to customers while remaining secure, CPTED can play a major role in their security plan. Dispensaries can implement CPTED by utilizing landscaping, keeping their properties free of environmental debris, and trimming trees and other foliage. This will help them maintain natural surveillance and generate a positive reputation in their community.

The parking lots of retailers can be targets of crime if not properly secured and utilizing CPTED strategies can help deter crime in these areas. Instead of installing a fence to control access of the perimeter of the business, dispensaries can implement steel bollards and security glass to protect retail storefronts. Other security measures include implementing security equipment and systems (like an alarm system or security guards) to control access. Additionally, dispensaries have an even greater need to establish territoriality through community ties since they are more likely to be located in close proximity to other businesses or residences.

CPTED for Non-Retail Cannabis Businesses

In addition to the strategies outlined for
retailers, cannabis cultivators and other non-retail businesses can utilize security measures like perimeter fences or other physical barriers to control access. Perimeter fencing obscures visibility and physically deters potential thefts. In addition to fencing, tree lines, large bushes, or existing buildings can also serve as physical barriers.  sapphirerisk.com

Crime & Cannabis
The effect of legalizing marijuana; Colorado's warning to New Mexico
In less than six months, recreational marijuana will be legal in New Mexico. So what changes can New Mexicans expect in a new world of legal marijuana?
Law enforcement officials in Colorado have a warning for New Mexico.

Prosecutor George Brauchler was there in the beginning. "What has turned out to be unpredictably bad, is
the surge in crime, one, violent crime," said Brauchler.

Brauchler was a newly elected district attorney when Colorado first legalized recreational marijuana. "At the time I thought 'we'll spend a lot of time on cocaine, methamphetamine, fentanyl, which was really starting to catch fire back in the early 2010s'," said Brauchler. "That turned out to be crack smoke crazy because what I ended up having to do was take this senior prosecutor who runs this organized crime unit now, more than 50% of her time was dedicated to nothing but illegal marijuana grows."

That was eight years ago. "I was not one of the people that said 'hey legalizing marijuana is just going to be so very good for Colorado, and my kids.' I didn't believe that and I still don't believe it," said Brauchler. "I think the evidence is there that it has been overall bad."

According to that evidence,
there are so many killings that law enforcement agencies have trouble keeping track. Brauchler says he's had 16 murder cases related to the illegal transaction of marijuana. He also added that they have other cases like assaults and burglaries that are related to marijuana.

Sheriff Spurlock says these are
sophisticated groups including cartels and gangs. Brauchler predicts that New Mexico will also see national and international drug cartels showing up in the state to do their cultivation and distribution.

Colorado law-enforcement agencies say that one of the unexpected problems with legal marijuana is that
it actually makes it much harder for police to crack down on illegal marijuana. "No longer can they go to the door, and smell marijuana, or even see marijuana plants in a house, and use that as a vehicle to get inside and continue an investigation. That's not enough because those are legal products now," said Brauchler. krqe.com

Leaked Amazon Recording
Amazon's grocery VP tells employees that recent media coverage of the company's performance-review system is 'fake news'

Amazon's grocery employees asked sharp questions about its performance-review system at a meeting.

Amazon's grocery vice president had a Trumpian response to recent reports about the company's opaque performance-review system: It's "fake news."

That was Stephenie Landry's answer to an employee-submitted question during last month's all-hands meeting for Amazon's F3 (Fresh, Food, Fast Grocery) group, which includes its Fresh grocery, Whole Foods, and Prime Now delivery units, according to a recording of the meeting obtained by Insider.

The question, which received the most upvotes from employees, asked leadership to address a recent report about an Amazon internal policy that prevents managers from notifying employees placed on the company's performance-improvement plan, called Focus. The questioner said the secretive process generated "anxiety" and seemed "counterproductive" to helping employees.

Landry disputed the notion that there was an official policy to secretly put employees on performance-improvement plans. She said Amazon was transparent about it and was committed to helping people through the process.

"There are times when folks need extra help, and we are committed to transparently working with you through that process," Landry said. "It's not fun when we end up in that position, either as employees or managers.

"But there's no secretive process - fake news," she added. businessinsider.com

$31M Coupon Fraud Scheme
DOJ: Virginia Beach Couple Sentenced for $31 Million Coupon Fraud Scheme
A Virginia Beach
woman was sentenced today to 12 years in prison, following last month's sentencing of her husband to over 7 years in prison, for perpetrating a counterfeit coupon fraud scheme that cost retailers and manufacturers over $31 million in losses.

From approximately April 2017 through May 2020, Lori Ann Talens, 41, operated
a complex scheme using social media sites and apps such as Facebook and Telegram to find groups of coupon enthusiasts and sell them counterfeit coupons. Lori Ann Talens, who operated online under the moniker "MasterChef," used a computer to design, create, and produce a wide variety of counterfeit coupons in her Virginia Beach home. These counterfeit coupons were virtually indistinguishable from authentic coupons and were often created with inflated values, far in excess of what an authentic coupon would offer, in order to receive items from retail for free or for a greatly reduced price.

As part of the scheme, Lori Ann Talens would
ship the counterfeit coupons throughout the United States using the U.S. Postal Service and other commercial parcel delivery services. She accepted payment for the counterfeit coupons through a variety of online payment methods, including Bitcoin and Paypal. Lori Ann's husband, Pacifico Talens, 43, was aware of the counterfeit coupon scheme, profited from it, and assisted in the operation by shipping packages of counterfeit coupons and performing other administrative tasks at the direction of his wife.

The scheme was discovered when
one of the Talens's customers reported them to the Coupon Information Center (CIC).

Federal law enforcement executed a search warrant on their residence. During the search, agents
seized nearly $1 million worth of counterfeit coupons from the residence. Furthermore, a review of the Talens's computer revealed images for over 13,000 separate and distinct counterfeit coupon designs. The CIC reviewed these images and compared them to the known counterfeit coupons in circulation. The analysis concluded that coupon redemptions using the 13,000 counterfeit designs on the couple's computer had caused approximately $31,817,997 million in losses to retailers and manufacturers. justice.gov

$4M Gift Card Scam
Colleyville, TX: $4 million gift card scam started in Colleyville, ends in woman's arrest

The woman allegedly redeemed cards totaling more than $1.2 million over the summer.

A 28-year-old woman is under arrest after her alleged role in a $4 million gift card scam whose first victim was a Colleyville man. Lin Qiu, a Chinese national who was living in Plano,
was part of an organized crime ring that conned elderly victims into buying an estimated $4 million in gift cards that were then redeemed by the criminals, prosecutors told KXAS-TV (NBC5).

The case began in Colleyville, when a 78-year-old man responded to a fraudulent email from Apple. He called a toll-free number on the email and the person on the phone accessed the man's phone and computer remotely, according to the station, and was scammed out of $400.

Walmart fraud investigators also got involved, telling police they detected a "very large suspected fraud and money laundering case" in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties, according to the station. The company was "alarmed" that thousands of cards that were purchased from across the country were all being redeemed in North Texas, often soon after they were bought, NBC5 reported.

Court documents show Qiu
personally redeemed 2,000 Walmart shopping and gift cards over the summer, according to NBC5, with a value of over $1.2 million.

Qiu was
arrested on charges of engaging in organized crime, theft, money laundering and exploitation of the elderly, according to the station, and is being held on a $500,000 bond. dallasnews.com

Serial BB Gun Robber Gets 72 Months Fed Prison
DOJ: San Bernardino Man Who Robbed 28 Food and Retail Stores During Five-Month Crime Spree Sentenced to 6 Years in Federal Prison
A San Bernardino man who robbed more than two dozen retail and fast-food stores during a five-month span in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties was sentenced today to 72 months in federal prison. David Sanchez, 41, pleaded guilty on June 21 to two counts of interference with commerce by robbery.

From November 2020 to April 2021, Sanchez robbed 28 fast food restaurants and retail stores. In each robbery, he brandished what appeared to be a firearm - but was in fact a BB gun - and demanded money from the cash registers. The robberies netted a total of at least $3,853.

Sanchez admitted in his plea agreement to robbing stores and food shops in Lynwood, Long Beach, South Gate, San Bernardino, Palmdale, Compton, Whittier, Fontana and Bellflower. The robberies targeted Walgreens, Circle K, Little Caesar's Pizza, Subway, El Rey Supermarket, Lynwood Farmer's Market, Family Dollar Store, Starbucks, Domino's Pizza and Dollar Tree outlets. justice.gov

Update: Queens, NY: JFK Chanel, Gucci heist accomplice pleads guilty
A man pleaded guilty to charges for his involvement in a designer clothing cargo heist at John F. Kennedy Airport last year, Queens District Attorney Malinda Katz announced this week. Manhattan resident David Lacarriere, 34, was charged with criminal possession of stolen property in the first degree after being caught with thousands of Gucci and Chanel items worth $2.5 million - only a portion of the more than $4 million in gear taken from a warehouse at the airport. "Our airports must be safe for travelers. JFK Airport, an international trade hub, must also be secure for companies that transport vital air cargo to our region - especially during the height of this healthcare pandemic - when our City relied on air cargo for food and medical supplies," Katz said.

Lacarriere was allegedly part of a crew that gained access to the warehouse in May of 2020 using forged air cargo shipment receipts and impersonating a truck driver to get onto the grounds. Designer jewelry, bags, clothing, sneakers and other accessories in the shipment were carted off site. Port Authority police found the container in Maspeth more than a week later, which contained only shipping pallets, wrapping material and display cases doused in bleach.
Police recovered more than 3,000 authentic Gucci items and 1,000 Chanel items from Lacarriere's home after executing a search warrant. He returns to court for sentencing on Oct. 26 and faces 5 and a half to 11 years in prison. He had previously pleaded not guilty. After the breach, the Port Authority and the Transportation Security Administration worked to update security including barriers limiting access of unauthorized individuals at JFK. queenseagle.com

Salem, MA: Man indicted on Murder charge for causing Saugus crash that killed teenager
A Massachusetts man has been indicted on a murder charge for causing a head-on, wrong-way crash in Saugus that killed a teenager, according to the Essex District Attorney's Office. An Essex County grand jury indicted 35-year-old William Leger, of Somerville, on multiple charges Wednesday morning in connection with the crash that happened three months ago. Leger was indicted one count each of murder, manslaughter, motor vehicle homicide, unarmed robbery and subsequent offenses of receiving a stolen motor vehicle and operating with a suspended license.

Authorities say Saugus Police were dispatched shortly before 10:50 a.m. on June 9 to the 7-Eleven on Lincoln Ave. for a report of an unarmed robbery. While they were traveling to the convenience store, a description of the suspect's vehicle was relayed to officers. A Saugus police officer spotted the suspect's vehicle traveling east on Ballard Street and attempted to stop the suspect, later identified as Leger. Leger then fled and led the officer on a brief pursuit, authorities say. Police immediately ended their pursuit when Leger turned onto Route 107 and began traveling south in the northbound lanes. About a half of a mile south, Leger's vehicle collided with another vehicle. The crash killed Ashley Forward, a 19-year-old from Lynn. wcvb.com
