The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

NRF's 'Retail Gets Real' episode 325:
Retail leaders rally to fight retail crime

Retail Gets Real episode 325: NRF's David Johnston on the problem of organized retail crime and how retailers are advocating for action

In October, NRF brought together representatives from more than 30 retail brands for a day of advocacy and action on Capitol Hill to raise awareness and fight back against organized retail crime.

The Fight Retail Crime Day fly-in was a huge success, with 70 retail attendees participating in 65 meetings with congressional offices on that one day, according to David Johnston, NRF's vice president of asset protection and retail operations.

"For most asset protection leaders, including myself, we've never participated in a visit to Congress, so we had no idea what to expect when we got to Capitol Hill," Johnston says on this episode of Retail Gets Real. "I think our initial goal was to get probably about 20 asset protection leaders, because this is not something that they normally talk about in public venues ... and the results really far exceeded our expectation."

Johnston and the retailers were on the Hill to push for passage of the Combating Organized Retail Crime Act, a bipartisan bill introduced in both the House and Senate last year.

In addition to the fly-in, NRF sent a letter to Congress signed by 73 retail companies, along with 6,300 messages from retail advocates and employees showing their support and asking members of Congress to pass the bill. "It far exceeded our initial expectations," Johnston says. "It was a great experience, and we know it's going to do good in our continued fight against organized retail crime."

New ORCA Holds First Meeting Ahead of Holidays
HSI Jackson holds first state Organized Retail Crime Alliance meeting
JACKSON, Miss. - In advance of the holiday shopping season, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Jackson, Mississippi, and the newly formed Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama Organized Retail Crime Alliance (ORCA), held its first strategic planning meeting for the state of Mississippi on Nov. 14. Their efforts are designed to combat organized theft groups by targeting domestic and transnational criminal organizations that profit from organized retail crime (ORC).

The four-state Organized Retail Crime Alliance connects federal, state and local law enforcement and prosecutors, as well as financial and retail industry partners, from all four states. The ORCA initiative is part of a larger nationwide strategic partnership for HSI to identify, investigate and prosecute organized retail crime.

Attendees included representatives from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Southern and Northern District, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, the Madison Police Department, the Office of the Governor of Mississippi, Starkville Police Department, Hattiesburg Police Department, Jackson Capitol Police, Vicksburg Police Department and Flowood Police Department. Mississippi retail partners included representatives from Target, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Bass Pro Shop, Rouses and Academy Sports.

"By partnering with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies and other retail industry partners, we significantly amplify our ability to not only share intelligence and resources, but locate and investigate organized retail crime, which costs federal and state governments nearly $15 billion in lost tax revenue," said Chris Schkade, LAMA ORCA chairman. "During this inaugural state meeting, we had two retailers realize they were dealing with the same repeat criminal theft operator which is a testament to how we can combat violent retail crime when we work together."

In fiscal year (FY) 2021, HSI initiated 59 ORC investigations, representing a 211 percent increase from 19 investigations initiated in FY 2020, and accounting for 61 criminal arrests, 55 indictments, 59 cases initiated, and $9,287,757 in assets seized. Organized Retail Theft has been responsible for nearly $70 billion in retail merchandise being stolen from businesses in 2019; ORC results in $125.7 billion in lost economic activity; E-Commerce platforms are repeatedly being utilized to re-sell stolen merchandise. ice.gov

Florida cracks down on organized retail theft
AG Moody's Office of Statewide Prosecution Secures Eight-Year Sentence and $500,000 Restitution Order for ORT Ringleader
Florida continues to crack down on retail theft. Attorney General Ashley Moody's Office of Statewide Prosecution has secured another sentence and restitution order for another leader of an organized retail theft ring in 15 counties.

Just a few weeks ago, Moody announced the results of a recent racketeering investigation into another major operation targeting retail theft, which involved millions in stolen items and murder.

Moody on Wednesday announced an eight-year prison sentence for Byron Johnson, followed by five years' probation, and pay $539,360 in restitution, who operated a theft ring in 15 counties that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses to Home Depot stores.

"In Florida, we are fighting back against organized retail theft," Moody says. "We will not allow this crime, occurring rampantly in other parts of our country, to wreak havoc on our consumers and businesses."

Four other defendants were charged with grand theft of varying amounts, ranging from first to third-degree felonies. These cases are still pending, according to the AG's OSP.

Since 2019, the Office of Statewide Prosecution has secured an overall conviction rate of 99%. It's tasked with prosecuting crimes that impact two or more judicial circuits in

Most OSP charges resulted from multi-jurisdictional investigations. One includes a retail theft scam targeting multiple Walmart stores in Polk County. Of those involved, one is currently serving time in prison. Another is under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections. Arrest warrants are currently out for two alleged members. One is deceased.

Another involves a retail theft scam operating in South Florida in at least nine judicial circuits. This scam caused over $20 million in losses to more than 20 different retailers. thecentersquare.com myfloridalegal.com

The Heart of ORC Operations: Fencers
The Fencers: The Lynchpin of Organized Retail Crime Enterprise
Criminal fencers-individuals who knowingly buy stolen merchandise to resell for profit-are often
the lynchpin of an Organized Retail Crime (ORC) enterprise's strength and longevity. The lifespan of an ORC enterprise is dependent upon a fencer's ability to recruit boosters-individuals who shoplift items-direct stealing operations, and turn stolen goods into a profit. Fencing operations and booster recruitment have magnified the ORC issue in recent years, with ORC contributing to more than $68 billion lost from stolen goods.

We provide this overview on fencers-particularly before the holiday season-to inform consumers and retailers of how to
identify potential interactions with fencers online and protect themselves from the growing issue of ORC.

What is "Fencing?"

Criminal fencers are
individuals who knowingly buy stolen merchandise to resell for profit. The success and endurance of ORC relies on the fencer's ability to sell stolen merchandise to consumers who are either unwitting or apathetic to the product's origin and acquisition. A review of court cases showed fencers are often the top individuals in smaller or less complex enterprises, while larger enterprises may involve senior individuals who help divert and "clean" stolen goods before resale.

Individuals who acted as fencers in ORC enterprises represent a wide range of demographics. In our review of ORC-associated criminal cases,
fencers consisted of both male and female individuals who were generally in their thirties or forties. Race, countries of origin, regional location, profession, and other traits were widely represented.

Many fencers in ORC enterprises consist of teams of family members, including combinations of spouses, siblings, adult children, and parents. The
use of familial relationships centralizes trust and eases overall coordination. It also simplifies the use of family residences or businesses for storing and shipping stolen goods.

Target crime-plagued store closures will erase hundreds of Bay Area jobs

Big-box retailer is closing three Bay Area stores in wake of crime wave

Target's decision to
close three crime-plagued stores will erase hundreds of jobs in the Bay Area, state filings show.

The big-box retailer has decided to permanently shut down
three Bay Area stores, located in Oakland, Pittsburg and San Francisco in the wave of thefts and crimes that afflicted the trio of retail sites.

That move also has erased 238 Bay Area jobs as a result of the permanent shutdowns, with dozens of layoffs at each of the three store sites.

"Our team continues to face an unacceptable amount of retail theft and organized retail crime," Brian Cornell, Target's chief executive officer, said in a conference call with Wall Street analysts in August.

Within a month of that conference call, Target disclosed it would close nine stores in four states, including three in the Bay Area. mercurynews.com

Yellow Flag Law's Use Increases After Lewiston
Maine Police Used Yellow Flag Law 14 Times Since Mass Shooting
In three cases of Maine police invoking the
state's yellow flag law to take away someone's access to weapons since Oct. 25, the name of the Lewiston gunman was used by the subject.

The law - which has come under scrutiny because it was not used to remove guns from Robert Card before he killed 18 people in Lewiston - has now been used a total of 95 times since it went into effect in 2020. The flurry of incidents since the shootings means about
15% of all yellow flag actions occurred in the past two weeks.

Police agencies can use the law to take away weapons from people who have mental health crises and present a danger to themselves or others. It requires a mental health evaluation and the approval of a judge. officer.com

Video: Man Making Bomb Threats Crashes into Mall, Fights with Colo. Police
Pueblo police responding to an active shooter call confronted a man in a vehicle who drove into the Pueblo Mall before struggling with officers and claiming his vehicle was filled with bombs. Pueblo Police were called to the mall on a report of shots fired just after 2 p.m.

A man is in custody after driving his vehicle into the Pueblo Mall on Tuesday.

Pueblo police say that they received an active shooter call from the mall on Dillion Drive at 2 p.m. Officers responding made contact with a man in a vehicle, attempting a stop. The man evaded officers,
driving across the mall parking lot and through the west side entrance doors, according to the Pueblo Police Department.

The man was then taken into custody after a "protracted struggle" according to the PPD Facebook page. Police say the
suspect said that there were bombs in the vehicle. The Pueblo Metro Bomb Squad responded to assess the scene.

The PPD said around 8 p.m. that the the bomb squad had found the mall was safe and no further threat existed.

A spokesperson for the Pueblo Mall said Tuesday in a statement to the Chieftain that the mall's security team "followed protocol" and was "grateful for the quick action by the Pueblo Police Department." chieftain.com officer.com

Thousands of employees at hundreds of sites will mount one-day work stoppages on Thursday
See the list of Starbucks' 14 Bay Area shops that will strike on Red Cup Day. Here's when that is
Unionized Starbucks baristas plan to hold their biggest strike yet this week, accusing the coffee giant of refusing to fairly negotiate at cafes that voted to organize.

Thousands of employees at hundreds of sites will mount one-day work stoppages on Thursday, according to the union Starbucks Workers United.

The strike is pegged to the company's Red Cup Day, a popular promotional event when Starbucks gives out holiday-themed reusable cups. The union says Starbucks has illegally refused to negotiate in good faith over issues including staffing and scheduling that are particularly onerous during such promotions.

Workers United has prevailed in elections at more than 350 of Starbucks' roughly 9,000 corporate-run US stores. mercurynews.com

At REI, a Progressive Company Warns That Unionization Is Bad for Vibes
Employees at the member-owned co-op have voted to unionize at several locations-and they've also accused the company of trying to stop them from organizing.

Employees at eight of REI's roughly 180 US stores, starting with the Manhattan one, have voted to unionize over the past two years with the RWDSU or other chapters of the United Food & Commercial Workers, seeking a say in issues such as safety, scheduling and benefits. But-like their newly unionized counterparts at Amazon.com, Apple and Starbucks-none has gotten close to negotiating an actual union contract with the company. On Nov. 14,
the UFCW filed cases with the US National Labor Relations Board, accusing REI of refusing to negotiate fairly at stores across the country. It's the latest volley in an escalating dispute in which each side accuses the other of violating the humane values that are core to the retailer's brand. bloomberg.com

When & What to Report to the SEC

SEC Accountants Highlight This Year's Compliance Struggles

Risk management, auditor independence, and non-GAAP reporting - Companies Asking for Help

At the Financial Executives International's Corporate Financial Reporting Conference on Monday, held virtually, OCA and the SEC division of corporate finance staff raised the themes they see heading into regulatory reporting season this year.

One is risk assessment. Anita Doutt, senior associate chief accountant at the OCA, said the OCA has heard troubling feedback about
management being "too narrowly focused" on matters directly affecting financial reporting and missing or disregarding broader, entity-level issues that could indirectly impact financial reporting. A data breach or a regulatory finding would be an example.

"Management may be inadvertently biased towards evaluating each incident in isolation or rationalizing away disconfirming evidence and basically can conclude that these matters don't individually or in the aggregate rise to the level of a disclosure," Doutt said.

When management has such a narrow focus, it can result in
material risks to the business, Doutt added. The company may not have appropriate controls around the identified risks or are undisclosed. cfo.com

FBI takes down IPStorm malware botnet as hacker behind it pleads guilty
FBI dismantled the IPStorm botnet proxy network and its infrastructure this week following a September plea deal with the hacker behind the operation.

The Justice Department said it took down the infrastructure associated with the IPStorm malware - which experts said
infected thousands of Linux, Mac, and Android devices across Asia, Europe, North America and South America.

The botnet was
first sighted by researchers in June 2019, primarily targeting Windows systems, and stood out to experts because it used the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) peer-to-peer protocol to communicate with infected systems and relay commands. Cisco warned last year that IFPS was being exploited widely by hackers.

By 2020, several security companies discovered that the malware had expanded to versions that infected other devices and platforms. Cybersecurity journalist Catalin Cimpanu reported that the botnet grew from
around 3,000 infected systems in May 2019 to more than 13,500 devices by 2020.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Justice Department said Sergei Makinin, a Russian and Moldovan national, pled guilty on September 18 to
three hacking charges that each carry a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.

According to the DOJ, Makinin developed and deployed the malware from June 2019 to December 2022, using it to
hack thousands of internet-connected devices around the world. therecord.media

AI Turning Workplaces into the 'Wild West'
AI in Workplace Is Like the Wild West: Untamed

Employees are using it, likely without your knowledge

It's the
Wild West when it comes to using generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) tools-such as ChatGPT-in the workplace, with many workers using these resources without their managers' knowledge, according to recent surveys. As with any tool, transparency and training are key to proper usage.

AdvertisementHowever, a survey earlier this year from San Francisco-based corporate social networking platform Fishbowl found that only one-third (32 percent) of respondents who use AI at work do so with their boss's knowledge. The 5,067 respondents included workers at Amazon, Bank of America, IBM, JP Morgan and Nike.

Snaplogic, a San Mateo, Calif.-based company that enables automation for enterprise companies, reported similar findings. Its September survey with 904 midlevel office workers in Australia, the U.K. and the U.S. discovered
40 percent of respondents use these tools without disclosing their usage to colleagues or their employer-but are not necessarily abusing the tools.

More than two-thirds
(67 percent) think AI saves them one to five hours of work per week. And while there's the perception GenAI is used primarily to crunch numbers, Snaplogic found the predominant use is research-sometimes because the employee is too embarrassed to ask a human for help. Nearly one-fourth (22 percent) said they would covertly use GenAI because they didn't know how to perform a task or have the answer to something. Nearly one-fourth (22 percent) also said they would not use AI if they had to disclose their use.

But transparency works both ways.
Employees want their employer to be open about how AI could directly improve their workflow-something cited by 78 percent of respondents to a survey conducted by thought leadership and research agency Workplace Intelligence in partnership with UKG.  shrm.org

Securing Your Cannabis Store
Video Surveillance for Cannabis Businesses
Regardless of license type, all cannabis businesses will need a video surveillance system. Like other industries, one of the main goals of the video surveillance system in a cannabis business is loss prevention. Individuals are less likely to steal when they know they are being recorded, and if they do attempt to steal, they are more likely to be caught.

Businesses are more protected from potential theft, diversion, and losses when they implement proper video monitoring systems and other compliant security devices.

Though every cannabis business needs a video surveillance system, the needs of each business may differ. Based on the design, location, and function of the facility, the business may require increased storage capacity, specialty devices, or advanced monitoring services.

Surveillance Cameras

While security cameras differ greatly in their quality, price, and abilities, the goals of a basic video surveillance system remain the same:

Reduce and prevent internal/external theft
Assist with inventory management
Track employee progress/optimize performance
Analyze customer shopping patterns/improve business operations
Investigate an incident after it has occurred

For cannabis businesses, basic video surveillance systems are composed of similar devices: cameras, video management systems, display monitors, and storage devices like an ENVR. Though these systems are primarily reactive in nature, video surveillance technology is advancing to become more proactive.

Most states/localities have required policies and laws for cannabis businesses. These laws typically mandate video surveillance systems, and may even require recording in a specific resolution or frames per second. Requirements regulating the length of time that a cannabis business must store video recordings is also common and the duration varies by state. sapphirerisk.com

Another State Scrambles to Prepare for Cannabis Legalization
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine: Proposed changes to Ohio's new marijuana legalization law won't contain 'surprises'
Gov. Mike DeWine said that he and legislative leaders met on Monday to discuss what changes to make to Issue 2,
a recreational marijuana legalization law passed by voters last week.

AdvertisementDeWine, speaking with reporters at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, declined to say exactly what proposed changes he discussed with Ohio House Speaker Jason Stephens and Ohio Senate President Matt Huffman during a breakfast meeting. But he indicated that they didn't bring up any proposals that they previously didn't air in public after Issue 2′s passage.

"I don't think there's any surprises out there," said DeWine, a Republican who last week said he wants to enact marijuana restrictions intended to prevent accidental ingestion, public use, driving while intoxicated and advertising. He also said he
wants lawmakers to lift existing criminal penalties for marijuana possession to avoid public confusion.

Huffman, a Lima Republican,
has expressed interest in raising the 10% sales tax on marijuana created by Issue 2, as well as lowering the maximum amount of THC that marijuana products can contain. Stephens, a Lawrence County Republican, has suggested lawmakers would divert some marijuana tax money toward county jail construction and law-enforcement training. cleveland.com

Cannabis Burglary Turns Into 'Rolling Gun Battle'
Santa Cruz cannabis business owner arrested for alleged violent response to break-in
A 36-year-old Santa Cruz cannabis business owner was arrested this week after an apparently
violent response to a break-in. Derek Hubbard, who police say was the victim of an early-morning robbery at his Encinal Street facility Monday, was being held without bail in Santa Cruz County Jail on Tuesday. Hubbard allegedly rammed into and shot at the escape vehicles of multiple thieves as they were leaving the scene around 4:30 a.m. Police later arrived in the area and were unable to apprehend the thieves, officials said.

Hubbard - who runs a cannabis cultivation, manufacturing and distribution center - had been the victim of a prior break-in robbery and was alerted to the most recent break-in via his security system, Santa Cruz Police Deputy Chief Jon Bush said. In what
turned into a rolling gun battle through the Harvey West neighborhood, Hubbard allegedly initiated the shooting with the departing thieves, according to Bush.

Shifting E-Comm from Warehouses to Stores
Walgreens Shifts eCommerce Fulfillment From Warehouses to Retail Stores

Walgreens taking new approach to online delivery by utilizing network of stores.

The pharmacy giant recently
closed a warehouse dedicated to eCommerce orders, signaling its commitment to using its 8,700 stores as both retail outlets and fulfillment centers, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported Tuesday (Nov. 14).

having store employees pick and pack items for same-day delivery through third-party apps like DoorDash and Uber Eats, Walgreens aims to increase the speed of online consumer order fulfillments and boost sales, according to the report.

This strategy, which
excludes the company's pharmacy operations, aims to streamline the handling of online orders by consolidating the management of goods into a single system, the report said.

eliminates the need for separate distribution networks for eCommerce and in-store sales, per the report. With 78% of Americans living within 5 miles of a Walgreens store, the company is capitalizing on the proximity of its stores to customers.

Walgreens is
following the lead of other retailers like Target, Walmart and CVS Health, which have also started fulfilling more online orders from their stores, according to the report.

To provide customers with faster delivery options,
Walgreens encourages same-day delivery when items are in stock nearby, per the report. Customers who choose no-rush shipping during online checkout are given the option to have their items delivered earlier, if possible. These orders are fulfilled by local store employees and delivered by DoorDash or Uber Eats. pymnts.com

Time is Right For Biometric Technologies
Biometric Authentication Tailor-Made for a Digital-First World
In today's digital era, where convenience meets security and organizations and individuals alike no longer need to make a trade-off between the two, legacy methods of authentication are increasingly giving way to a more intuitive, seamless and secure alternative: biometric authentication.

"The stars are aligning when it comes to [behavioral and market] conditions," Entersekt Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder Dewald Nolte told PYMNTS.

"People are getting used to logging into their favorite apps on their smartphones using biometrics daily, and using Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and those kind of wallets using biometrics to activate that payment, it is fairly well adopted in the market," Nolte explained.

The last "piece of this magic combination," he added, is that traditional technologies, like one-time passwords (OTPs), are being exposed as no longer good enough, creating a demand for more secure alternatives.

"We're seeing very successful phishing campaigns in instances where these OTPs are being stolen," Nolte said.

That is why the
time is ripe for biometric authentication to take center stage.

From fingerprint recognition to the current Face ID capabilities on smartphones, biometric technologies have evolved to meet the demands of a changing landscape as they've matured, boasting high success rates and user acceptance. pymnts.com

Chicago, IL: $10,000 worth of merchandise stolen in Ulta smash-and-grab
Smash-and-grab thieves made off with roughly $10,000 worth of merchandise after burglarizing an Ulta Beauty store Wednesday morning in Greektown.

There is no one in custody as Area Three detectives investigate.  fox32chicago.com

San Francisco, CA: CHP seizes $350K worth of goods in East Bay retail theft probe
A California Highway Patrol organized retail theft investigation has yielded stolen property worth an estimated $350,000, the agency said on social media Tuesday night. CHP's Golden Gate division collaborated with Concord police to execute search warrants in Oakland and Galt, which is a city in Sacramento County. A residence in Oakland was being used to fence stolen property, and merchandise was also found in multiple storage facilities and vehicles. Law enforcement also apprehended two loaded guns and $17,344 in illegal proceeds from the theft operation. The primary suspects, whom CHP has not named, were booked into Santa Rita Jail on suspicion of grand theft, possession of stolen property and conspiracy to commit a crime. The CHP did not say how many suspects were taken into custody. 

Milwaukee, WI: 'They're just prolific,' organized retail theft groups target MKE area
Across the country, stores have reported losses, some closing, due to theft. In southeast Wisconsin, police tell WISN 12 News criminals are more organized and are stealing more. "We are seeing an uptick in people running into the store, grabbing a whole bunch of merchandise in their arms, either walking or running out and then just leaving," said Greenfield Police Detective Nathan McCarthy. "Sometimes before the store even realizes what's happening." While Greenfield police responded to 50 retail theft calls in the month of October, the number of calls is not necessarily surging. Instead, police say, the amount they're taking and how they've become emboldened is increasing. "They're just prolific," McCarthy added. Two women, from out of state, are accused of stealing more than $8,000 from the Sephora in Wauwatosa, $3,500 from Brookfield and almost $4,000 from Mall of America. The criminal complaint states the pair are part of a "traveling felony theft crew" stuffing items into their dresses with some sort of bag system. Rosalina Lamandita and Loredana Vaduva face multiple felony theft charges, both are from Minneapolis. "They're not perfuming themselves for $6,000 worth of product, or for however long," McCarthy added, saying they're looking to sell whatever they steal. Stolen and flipped items often make it easier for police to catch criminals because they sell the items on social media for a cheaper price. "They'll put it on Facebook marketplace, which is a fairly common location for us to find those," he added. Oak Creek Police say a different group of women took more than $20,000 worth of merchandise from multiple Kohl's stores in Waukesha, Menomonee Falls and Oak Creek. 

Nashville, TN: Thousands of dollars in merchandise stolen from newly-opened Tanger Outlets

Investigators say one of the men scoured the department store, picking out a mountain of men's activewear while the other man was the getaway driver.
