The Retail Impact
35,000-Foot View of Anti-Theft Measure Impacts
Shoplifting deterrents can drive down sales
San Francisco and Oakland are among the top areas affected by organized
retail theft, according to a recent survey, but
efforts to combat theft can cause sales to drop.
it matters: Precautions to prevent
a rise in retail theft mean everything from toothpaste to laundry
detergent to baby formula is kept under lock and key. But these
safeguards are deterring shoppers from making in-store purchases,
Axios' Kelly Tyko reports.
State of play: Large metro areas where
retail theft has been higher often have more inventory behind locked cases than
rural areas, and San Francisco and Oakland together rank second on the list
of areas most affected by organized retail crime, according to the National
2022 National Retail Security Survey.
Locked cases can cause sales to drop 15% to 25%,
Joe Budano, CEO of anti-theft technology company Indyme, told Axios.
The inconvenience of locked cases — and having to find an employee to
open them for things like razors, body wash and technology items — end up
driving customers to shop online, GlobalData retail analyst Neil Saunders said.
Stolen merchandise is also often sold on online marketplaces like Amazon,
eBay and Facebook, Saunders said.
Between the lines: Earlier this year,

What to watch: In December, state
Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) introduced a bill (AB
23) that would lower the threshold for more serious retail theft from $950
"We need to protect our communities against retail theft crimes, or the
'smash and grab' crimes that have become commonplace," Muratsuchi
previously told Axios.
Is Portland the Epicenter of Retail's Theft
(Update) As Retail Crime Intensifies in Portland, Stores Close or Wind Down
Waves of crime in Portland, Ore., have
prompted some retailers to wind down their businesses there.
of crime in Portland, Ore., have prompted some retailers to wind down their
businesses there. Walmart confirmed to FN this week that it will close the
last two of its stores in Portland by March 24. The news comes months after
Walmart CEO Doug McMillon told CNBC that its stores are grappling with an
increase in organized retail crime.
Walmart’s U.S. communications director said these stores, located at Hayden
Meadows and East Port Plaza, were underperforming and did not confirm if the
closures were a result of increased retail crime in the city.
In recent weeks, Portland police have increased efforts to crack down on
organized retail theft via specifically targeted operations in areas of high
theft, KGW8 reported. On Sunday, Portland police conducted a retail theft
“blitz” mission in northeast Portland to help curb shoplifting at businesses in
the area, KPTV reported.
A Nike Community Store in Northeast Portland was also reportedly impacted by
waves of crime in the region, which likely prompted the closure of the store for
weeks, between October and November, KGW8 reported.
Outside of Portland, retail theft is plaguing other industry players. Target
CEO Brian Cornell said in November that the company has seen “a significant
increase in theft and organized retail crime” across its business and has
invested in new training and technology to combat the problem, which is
typically driven by organized crime rings that sell stolen goods online.
Rite Aid in September also noted a $5 million headwind from shrink,
mainly in its New York urban stores. Retail crime has also been especially
problematic in California. In October, Cotopaxi closed its San Francisco store
after a stream of smash-and-grab thefts hit the store.
Soft-on-Crime DA Fueling Portland's Crime
Soros-backed DA creating lawless, 'free-for-all' mentality, trial attorney says
Crime increased in Portland for the third year in a row in 2022,
according to police data, and district attorneys in
neighboring counties say lack of prosecution is part of the problem —
one that could spill into the rest of the state.
"That difference in prosecutions does result in some public safety challenges
because crime doesn't just limit itself to one particular county based on
geography," said Washington County District Attorney Kevin Barton, who oversees
the second-largest county in the Portland area. "Criminals move from county to
county. So if your neighbor's not taking care of business, it will impact

according to data provided by a spokesperson. At the same time, Portland
business owners complained of repeated attacks by thieves and vandals.
Property crime reports increased 11% compared to 2021, according to Portland
Police Bureau data.
Portland's neighboring Washington and Clackamas
counties filed charges in 91% and 84% of misdemeanor theft cases,
respectively, according to their district attorneys. In Washington County,
Barton said about 90% of those charges result in convictions. Alleged criminals
are aware of the discrepancy.
Kristin Olson, a trial attorney and native Portlander, said criminals feel like
"it's a free-for-all" in her city.
"We can't just not prosecute misdemeanor crimes because that creates societal
decay, and it creates an overall sense of lawlessness," Olson said.
"If we're letting these people go left and right because we don't believe in
bail and we don't believe in incarcerating them, then they know they can
commit these crimes with impunity. And we don't feel safe."
Another Mall Faces Backlash Over Security
Shoppers afraid to return to Hattiesburg mall after shooting
People in Hattiesburg are shaken up after a shooting at Turtle Creek Mall on
Saturday, March 4. Shoppers and neighbors said they’re in disbelief that a
shooting would happen inside of the mall. Those who were inside the mall at
the time say it was a chaotic dash for safety.
police said a 16-year-old girl and an 18-year-old man opened fire on each
other during a fight, sending crowds running from the mall. Deborah Dent
said she’s afraid to return to the mall.
Mall management said they take security measures
seriously and want customers to feel safe.
“We appreciate the quick action of the Hattiesburg Police Department (HPD) and
other responding agencies during this weekend’s incident. We will continue to
work with them during their investigation. In addition to maintaining a close
working relationship with HPD, we evaluate our security measures on an
ongoing basis, making adjustments as necessary. Our top priority is to
maintain a comfortable and convenient environment for our customers, retail
partners and employees,” said a spokesperson for the mall in a statement.

How Employers Should Prepare for the End of the COVID-19 Emergencies
In late January, the Biden administration announced that the COVID-19 public
health emergency (PHE) and national emergency will end May 11. The
pronouncement marks the beginning of a significant phase in the ongoing
pandemic, as well as the ending of a series of benefits enabled by the
need to do a few things in anticipation of the pandemic emergencies ending,
experts said. Reviewing health plan terms for COVID-19-related coverage and
reviewing benefits terms or offerings made under temporary pandemic relief
laws and guidance is a good first step. Additionally, getting assistance and
guidance from insurers and third-party administrators is important, Symons
said. HR and benefit leaders would be wise to talk with them about how they want
to handle the end of the emergencies and what changes they need to make in their
Another important piece is communicating with employees about the end of the
PHE and national emergency and how it will affect them, said Kim Buckey,
vice president of client services at Optavise, a Carmel, Ind.-based benefits
Communication with employees about cost changes is especially important,
as employees have gotten used to COVID-19 tests and vaccines being covered at no
cost. Employers also need to make sure employees are aware of the special
enrollment changes, Symons said.
Ultimately, "[t]here are a lot of changes that will need to be
administratively handled at the employer level, but also communicated out,"
Should Companies Have to Pay for Remote Work
Amazon worker loses bid for California class action over remote work expenses
Inc on Tuesday defeated a proposed class action lawsuit on behalf of nearly
7,000 workers in California that claimed the company should have reimbursed
employees who worked remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic for home office
U.S. District Judge Vincent Chhabria in San Francisco said the named plaintiff,
David Williams, failed to show that Amazon had a company-wide policy of not
reimbursing employees for internet, cell phone and other costs, and the
judge denied his motion to certify the workers as a class.
The judge said that more than 600 of the 7,000 proposed class members were
reimbursed $66.49 on average for home internet expenses, and some were
reimbursed in full. Williams' motion for class certification was denied without
prejudice, meaning he can file a renewed motion later on.
Mask and Vaccination Changes in California
California will change mask and other COVID rules again
The California Department of Public Health announced a number of updates to

Why Retailers Fail to Adopt Advanced Data Analytics
Advanced analytics have been available to businesses for years and are getting
better all the time, but with a few big exceptions most retailers still use very
basic tools. They do this even though they understand the advantages that
analytics have given their competitors. What is holding them back from more
fully embracing analytics? To find out, the authors interviewed 24 global
retail executives in the Americas, Europe, and Asia and found that six
factors are the primary sticking points. In this article they discuss
those six factors and offer retailers some suggestions for how to move
forward and profit from what advanced analytics have to offer.
The researchers, led by the University of Chicago, told the Harvard Business
Review, that executives “told us they face a critical lack of employees with the
right skills to design and use analytics tools. What they need most are
employees who can bridge functional gaps — translators, that is, between
analytics and the business.”
Washington Post Uncovers The Details of the
FBI, Pentagon helped research facial recognition for street cameras, drones
Internal documents released in response to a
lawsuit show the government was deeply involved in pushing for face-scanning
technology that could be used for mass surveillance
The FBI and the Defense Department were actively involved in research and
development of facial recognition software that they hoped could be used to
identify people from video footage captured by street cameras and flying drones,
according to thousands of pages of internal documents that provide new details
about the government’s ambitions to build out a powerful tool for advanced
Many of the records relate to the Janus program, a project funded by the
Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency, or IARPA, the high-level
research arm of the U.S. intelligence community modeled after the Pentagon’s
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, known as DARPA.
Program leaders worked with FBI scientists and some of the nation’s leading
computer-vision experts to design and test software that would quickly and
accurately process the “truly unconstrained face imagery” recorded by
surveillance cameras in public places, including subway stations and street
corners, according to the documents, which the ACLU shared with The Washington
In a 2019 presentation, an IARPA program manager said the goal had been to
“dramatically improve” the power and performance of facial recognition systems,
with “scaling to support millions of subjects” and the ability to quickly
identify faces from partially obstructed angles. One version of the system was
trained for “Face ID … at target distances” of more than a half-mile.
The improved facial recognition system was ultimately folded into a search tool,
called Horus, and made available to the Pentagon’s Combating Terrorism Technical
Support Office, which helps provide military technologies to civilian police
forces, the documents show.
The Horus tool has since been offered for use to at least six federal agencies,
and their feedback is “continuing to be used to refine the tool,” Department of
Homeland Security officials
said last year.

one sector and then spread like brushfire, pulling down a widening array of
industries and the people who work in them. Yet a close read of recent history

Will America's Gun Violence Crisis Spread to
Canada Risks Following the Path of the U.S. on Gun Violence
Canadians celebrate sharing the world’s longest undefended border with the
United States, and take comfort in an imagined wall that keeps out American
gun politics. That wall may now be crumbling.
November 2022, Canada’s federal government introduced amendments to draft gun
control legislation that would permanently ban military-style assault weapons,
fulfilling a campaign promise that contributed to Liberal Party electoral
victories in 2019 and 2021. The amendments sought to accomplish three goals:
enshrine in legislation the ban on more than 1,500 types of assault weapons put
in place following one of Canada’s worst mass shootings in Portapique, Nova
Scotia in 2020; add some firearms that had been excluded previously, including a
military rifle used in several recent shootings of police in Canada; and
incorporate an evergreen definition to prevent gun manufacturers from skirting
the ban in the future.
But they have met with a well-organized campaign of disinformation and division
from Canadian gun lobby groups, reminiscent of the rhetoric and tactics of the
NRA. One that, this time, has not fallen entirely on deaf ears. In early
February 2023, a political impasse forced the minority Liberal government to
withdraw the assault ban amendments for further study. Opposition parties,
particularly the Conservative Party that had been echoing gun lobby talking
points, rushed to claim victory.
Canadians—and the world—should be concerned. The country has long sought
to draw clear distinctions with their American neighbors on the issue of guns.
There is no constitutional right to keep and bear arms in Canada. Most Canadians
support strong gun control laws. When it comes to military-style assault
weapons, 82% favor a complete prohibition. Former Canadian Prime Minister Jean
Chretien once noted that gun control was a “core value” that helped define the
“differences between Canadians and Americans.”
Canada must be wary of such firearm exceptionalism. Between 2006-2016,
Canadians saw an erosion of gun control laws, as other peer nations in Europe
and elsewhere progressively moved to strengthen theirs. Canada has the fifth
highest rate of gun ownership in the world according to the most recent
Small Arms Survey.
Access to guns in the home has consistently been shown to be a
for firearm injury and death. Canada now has the
third highest rate of firearm homicide among populous high-income countries,
after the U.S. and Chile. Worldwide, it has the ninth highest
age-standardized rate of
firearm-suicide among men, which at 2.87 per 100,000 is more than twice the
global average. In the past decade, the country has experienced
15 mass shooting events. During the same period, and with almost twice the
population, England—which has prohibited military-style automatic and
semi-automatic weapons since
Supreme Court of Canada Ruling Could Impact
Future Robbery Convictions
Evidence cannot support Alberta man's robbery-related convictions: Supreme Court
The Supreme Court of Canada says it tossed out an Alberta man's
robbery-related convictions because the verdicts were unreasonable and
cannot be supported by the evidence. Shawn Metzger had been convicted of
offences stemming from a buglary that took place in Morningside, Alta., in June
Metzger was convicted of offences including breaking and entering to steal a
firearm and two counts of robbery. He unsuccessfully challenged the outcome
in the Alberta Court of Appeal. However, following a hearing last month
the Supreme Court set aside his convictions and substituted verdicts of
acquittal, saying written reasons would follow.
In reasons released Friday, a majority of the top court in the 3-2 decision said
the DNA evidence alone was not sufficient to establish
guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. At best, it permitted an
inference that Metzger was in the vehicle at some point before it was found,
but there was no evidence indicating when and why he may have been in the
vehicle, the court said.
Considering the totality of the evidence, no trier of fact could reasonably be
satisfied that a finding of guilt was the only sensible conclusion available,
Rowe added. "The verdicts were therefore unreasonable."
Nordstrom Shuts Down Canadian Operations

will take a financial hit of between $300 and $350 million according to an
earnings call on Thursday. Sales at Nordstrom in Canada were about $515 million
for fiscal 2022, representing about 3% of sales for the entire company. The
company lost $72 million during that time. About 2,330 people will lose their
jobs with the closure of Nordstrom’s stores in Canada.
Before the pandemic, there were signs that Nordstrom was struggling in Canada.
Retail Insider was provided sales numbers for Nordstrom’s Canadian stores in
2019 and it was becoming apparent that there were challenges. While the
Vancouver store’s sales were strong in the $300 million range annually, the
other five stores failed to meet targets.

Last week, it was announced that Seattle-based Nordstrom will be exiting its
Canadian operations, including shutting its six full-priced Nordstrom stores
as well as its seven off-price Nordstrom Rack locations and Nordstrom.ca.
Nordstrom’s first store in Canada opened in 2014 and its first Rack location
opened in 2018.
Also, Retail Ventures CND Inc. has been retained by Bed Bath & Beyond Canada
LP and Alvarez & Marsal Canada Inc. (court monitor), to facilitate the sale
of leases or other property rights for 54 leases of Bed Bath & Beyond and the 11
leases of Buy Buy Baby across the country.
Why have we seen so many American brands fail in Canada
in recent years?
Doug Stephens, Founder, Retail Prophet: “A few reasons I think. Some,
like Target, have simply fallen flat on their faces. Target should have
succeeded here but they were the masters of their own failure with operational
missteps and PR disasters. Others, like Nordstrom perhaps, have simply
overestimated the power of the Canadian consumer market. Over 70 per cent of US
GDP is generated by consumer spending. I think many retailers assume the
Canadian market is very similar. It is not at all the same as the U.S. We
have less retail here but it’s not because we want or need more retail. It’s
because we simply don’t spend as much as U.S. consumers.
“I also believe that Canada, as a market, requires a higher level of
profitability in order to make sense. We require dual language offices and
service, we come with separate taxation and legal issues, and, at the end of the
day, we’re a market with a population that’s smaller than the state of
California. If you have to close stores in a market, Canada is going to be at
the top of your list.”

Robbery Crew Busted
5 suspects in Brampton robberies tracked down in North York
Five suspects who allegedly robbed two stores in Brampton on Wednesday
were tracked down and arrested in Toronto, which prompted three North York
schools to be placed under lockdown, Peel police say.
Three males allegedly entered a retail establishment, produced a firearm and
demanded various items. Just before 2 p.m., police were called to another
robbery at a store near Hurontario Street and Bovaird Drive West. Similar to the
first incident, three male suspects allegedly brandished a firearm and made
demands for items in the store.
Police said one person suffered minor injuries and went to hospital. With
the help of Toronto police, Peel police located the suspects in the area of
Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue West. As a result, three nearby schools,
Emery Collegiate Institute, Emery Adult Learning Centre and St. Basil-The-Great
College School, were placed under lockdown as a precaution.
Suspect charged after allegedly brandishing weapon during grocery store robbery
Fort St. John RCMP say a man has been charged after allegedly brandishing a
weapon during a robbery at a grocery store. It happened on Sunday at the

shopping basket full of groceries. The suspect was then confronted by an
employee of the store. That’s when police say, he produced a weapon and then ran
off. Mounties were able to identify the man from the store’s surveillance
video. The suspect was located and arrested without incident, according to

The Ripple Effect of Amazon's Slowdown
Amazon’s belt-tightening affects towns across the U.S.
As the e-commerce giant presses pause on construction of HQ2 in Virginia,
other towns and cities are feeling the impact of the tech behemoth’s pullback
years, Amazon has been in super growth mode,
expanding its workforce by tens of thousands of employees each year and
opening dozens of warehouses, delivery centers, corporate offices, data
centers and other facilities that allow it to get packages to customers’ doors
in just a day or two.
As part of that growth, communities across the country lined up to offer
incentives to attract the jobs, which can be a boon particularly in areas
where traditional industries have dried up or moved abroad.
Perhaps most famously, Amazon spent
more than a year running a beauty contest to attract the best economic
incentives for its second headquarters, drawing hundreds of applications
from cities around the country before
landing on the rather obvious choices of New York City and the D.C. area. (New
York later bowed out after a community uproar.)
But now some projects — including the HQ2, as it is known, in Arlington, Va.
— are facing delays and some communities worry the projects may never
“Unless the contract includes a clawback, places like that may be out of luck,”
said Good Jobs First executive director Greg LeRoy. “They may have to wait and
hope Amazon delivers eventually — if it ever does.”
Amazon said it won’t receive tax incentives until it hits hiring goals in
Tallahassee, where it still plans to open a fulfillment center this year.
Amazon’s pullback is part of a broader trend among tech giants, who are
cutting jobs and tightening belts after over hiring during the pandemic.
Meta is planning a second round of layoffs after letting go 10,000 workers
in November. Google is cutting
12,000 roles, and Microsoft is laying off 10,000.
The Push Against Charging for Online Returns
What Zara and H&M Are Getting Wrong About Charging for Returns
Charging for returns might make economic sense, but it is worth remembering that
consumers still expect a frictionless experience, from pre-purchase to
In fact, 96% of shoppers
review return policies before making a purchase, and 54% indicate that they
were unlikely to purchase from a retailer that did not provide free returns.
Furthermore, according to the
PYMNTS Global Digital Shopping Index, U.S. shoppers who use these easy
return options are 52% more satisfied than those who do not.
The lesson here is that instead of fearing costs and abuse of return policies,
retailers must see easy returns as an opportunity for driving customer loyalty,
increasing repeat business and upping overall sales.
Fortunately, the vast majority of retailers realize this as they see offering
seamless returns as a way to boost loyalty.
To sum it up, an easy returns experience is not just a key component of
shoppers’ post-purchase experience, but also, their pre-purchase experience. It
is the ultimate answer to helping customers shop with more confidence.

Arizona authorities arrest crime ring with hundreds of SNAP cards
Attorney General Kris Mayes announced the results of a six-month investigation
by the Organized Retail Theft Task Force. Investigators discovered over 1,200
duplicate Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP) Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT)
cards and over 3,200 stolen cans of baby formula. Alongside these findings,

"Those participating in organized retail theft are on notice that in Arizona,
their organizations will be disrupted, they will be apprehended, and they will
be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," said Attorney General Kris
Mayes on March 2. "Organized retail theft and fraud harms all of us, from the
victims themselves to regular Arizonans facing increased prices that result from
theft. I want to thank our state agency and law enforcement partners, as well as
our retail partners, for their support and work on this investigation."
Through the Arizona crime ring, more than 2,700 individual victims lost over
$1.2 million in stolen SNAP benefits. Buying or selling SNAP benefits is
classified as a federal crime.

worth of sports memorabilia from Instant Replay Sports Cards on Highway 231.
One of the items was a Mickey Mantle baseball card worth upwards of $15,000.
Bay County Sheriff’s Investigator Captain Jason Daffin said they’re getting

they stopped to charge it 15 minutes away
Two suspects accused of stealing over $8,000 of merchandise in Buford, Georgia

Staten Island, NY: Woman, 52, accused of pointing taser at worker during robbery
at Kohl’s on Staten Island
Authorities intend to make a 52-year-old woman pay for her actions after they
allege she brandished a taser in a store in Mariners Harbor during a shoplifting
episode that escalated into a robbery. Tarsha Guinn of Hamilton Avenue in New
Brighton was arrested on Feb. 27 for the incident that occurred on Jan. 16
around 6:30 p.m. at the Kohl’s department store at 2239 Forest Ave., according
to the criminal complaint and police. Guinn allegedly grabbed more than
$1,100 worth of items, including men’s apparel, and headed toward the exit
instead of the checkout counter. As she was attempting to leave the store, the
complaint alleges that Guinn displayed and turned on what appeared to be a taser
and pointed it in the direction of a male worker. “I’m not paying,” the
complaint quotes Guinn as saying to the worker. She then allegedly left the
store with the items. Guinn has been indicated on charges of robbery, petit
larceny, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen
property, according to public records.

Paradise, TX: Former FedEx contractor pleads not guilty to kidnapping, killing
A former FedEx Ground contractor, accused of killing 7-year-old Athena Strand of
Paradise, Texas, pleaded not guilty to capital murder and aggravated kidnapping
charges on Monday during his arraignment in Wise County, Texas. Wise County
District Attorney James Stainton said he intends to seek the death penalty
against Tanner Horner, 31, if he is found guilty of capital murder at trial.
Stainton filed his notice with the court a day after a grand jury indicted
Horner on the two charges in mid-February. Horner has remained incarcerated at
the Wise County Detention Center since his arrest on Dec. 2, two days after
Athena went missing from her home. During the initial search for Athena,
investigators discovered that a truck with a FedEx logo had made a delivery to
her house around the time she went missing, about 5:45 p.m. on Nov. 30. Through
further investigation, law enforcement discovered that Big Topspin was the
contracting company used to deliver packages for FedEx. Employees of Big Topspin
helped investigators determine which van and driver had made the delivery to
Athena’s home, according to the arrest affidavit. The arrest affidavit states
Horner confessed to accidentally hitting Athena with his GMC box truck when he
was backing up. Although she “was not seriously injured [he] panicked and put
her in the van.”
Las Vegas Update: Arrest report details alleged robbery at Las Vegas store
before police shooting
police report sheds new light on an alleged robbery that led to a pursuit and
shooting in the Las Vegas valley last week. The report alleges that Lorraine
Alvarado, Kassandra Alvarez, and Mary Nolan were involved in the theft at a
sporting goods store on Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard on Wednesday, March
1. According to the report, the three women went into the store and shopped
briefly, and store employees began to suspect they were planning to steal
merchandise because of their behavior. Alvarez and Alvarado continued shopping
and presented items for purchase. When a card Alvarez used for payment was
rejected, Alvarado allegedly took a gun out of Alvarez's waistband, racked the
slide, and pointed it at an employee, according to the report. The employees
allowed them to leave with the merchandise, but someone got the license plate
for their car and provided it to 911. Officers found the Mercedes they were
driving and tried to make a stop, but a pursuit ensued. Police wrote that they
later learned the Mercedes was reported stolen. The pursuit ultimately came to
an end when the Mercedes crashed into another car in the area of Stephanie
Street and Sunset Road in Henderson. That's where Alvarado allegedly pointed a
gun at an officer before she was shot.

Salt Lake City, UT: Man robbed Bank of just $1, then waited to be arrested
A man was arrested Monday after police say he robbed a bank of just $1, then
waited in the lobby for officers to arrive because he wanted to be sent to
federal prison. Donald Matthew Santacroce, 65, was booked into the Salt Lake
County Jail for investigation of robbery. Santacroce entered Wells Fargo, 299 S.
Main, and gave the teller a note that stated, “Please pardon me for doing
this but this is a robbery. Please give me $1. Thank you,” according to a
police booking affidavit. The teller gave Santacroce a dollar and then asked him
to leave. But Santacroce instead told the teller to call police, the affidavit
states. “Donald sat down in the bank lobby and waited for police to arrive.
While waiting for police, Donald made a statement to the victims that they are
lucky (he) didn’t have a gun because it was taking the police so long to get
there. At this point the branch manager said she ushered all of her employees
into a back room for their safety where she locked the doors,” according to the
affidavit. Officers arrived and took Santacroce into custody. “Donald said he
had done this because he wanted to get arrested and go to federal prison. Donald
stated that if he gets out of jail, he will rob another bank and ask for more
money next time trying to get the desired result of going to federal prison,”
the arrest report states.
