In relocating to Auror’s Denver office from
New Zealand, Kylene Jones is bringing with her the skills and know-how to
replicate the incredibly successful Auror model, after thriving in the Australia
/ New Zealand market in her role as Director of Customer and Commercial. In her
new role as Director of Operations - North America, Kylene will ensure the Auror
touch of magic is embedded into our US-based operations as it grows, and those
tight-knit retail and law enforcement partnerships are consistently delivering
benefits to our customers there. Get ready, she’s headed your way!
The Australia and New Zealand region is where it all started for
Auror’s Crime Intelligence Platform,
and over the past year or so, things have really ramped up thanks to a team led
by Director of Customer and Commercial Kylene Jones.
Her responsibilities include growing annual recurring revenue for Australia and
New Zealand (ANZ), ensuring that Auror delivers excellent customer value so that
there is zero customer churn, and building relationships with law enforcement
We asked Kylene to reflect on her time at Auror, how she has helped the company
to grow, and what her biggest learnings about AP/LP are so far.
You’ve done a lot in your time with Auror so far,
Kylene. What have been some of the top achievements for you?
There are a few achievements that I’m proud of so far. One is building
partnerships with police departments across Australia to ensure collaboration
and benefits for both police and retailers. I recently led a project that led to
South Australia Police becoming the second police department to join Auror in an
official capacity. They have since partnered with our Customer Success team to
launch a shoplifting and retail crime operation. In the first week of this
operation launching, they were able to arrest six people responsible for 54
offences. A great success for SAPOL and retailers.
I’ve also built out the Account Management and Quarterly Business Review
framework for Auror, so we now have a structured, repeatable framework that is
used globally. This means that we are able to build long-term strategic
partnerships with our partners.

The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact
How the Retail Industry is Taking on ORC
Retailers increase efforts to fight organized retail crime
Retail Gets Real 264: Think LP’s Tony Sheppard on the resources and
technology needed to fight ORC
What comes to mind when you think of organized retail crime?
Tony Sheppard, director of loss prevention solutions at
ThinkLP, says the meaning has evolved over the years but is simply
defined as stealing from a retail location and converting those stolen goods to
cash. ORC can include credit card fraud, stealing a product and returning it for
cash or reselling it. Retailer loss prevention departments are growing as they
track the flow of goods from where they’ve been removed and where products end
rise in ORC incidents is a result of more online shopping from increased
demand for products in online marketplaces during the pandemic. Demand for
online products has unfortunately led to demand for stolen products as well.
To combat these issues, retailers have historically
used alarm tags and anti-resale tags, put GPS trackers in some products and
locked up items to make it harder to buy them in bulk, but Sheppard
says the issue is getting more complicated for loss prevention professionals.
“You need the resources and the technology to be able to manage through some of
those cases and do a lot of the work that quite frankly, years ago, law
enforcement used to do,” Sheppard says. That includes investing in vehicle
surveillance and enhanced technology to help track stolen goods.
Reducing and preventing ORC also includes education and ensuring it is
understood at the law enforcement and federal level that ORC is not a petty
“We as an industry need to make sure we are classifying it as organized retail
crime … the onus is on the retailer to continue to educate,” Sheppard says. “You
have to define the difference to get that these are professional thieves …
typically they're involved in other criminal activity too.”
Tune into the episode to learn more about the pandemic’s impact on retail
security and how retailers are combatting ORC and planning for the future.
ORC is Funding Terrorists, Cartels & The Mafia
Organized Shoplifting Taking Bite Out of Retailers’ Profits
Stolen razors are funding criminal
organizations in the United States.
the small dollar amounts traditionally involved, shoplifting long has been
viewed as a petty crime. But now, large-scale criminal enterprises are
utilizing seemingly small crimes like shoplifting on a massive scale to help
fund other more nefarious crimes. In the process, corner markets in
neighborhoods across America are becoming the front lines in the battle against
organized crime and terrorism.
Between 2001 and 2003, the Ghali organization — a shoplifting gang —
recruited hundreds of members to steal over-the-counter medicinal products
and other items such as infant formula, glucose test strips, razors and
pregnancy test kits for an estimated value of $5 million. This organized retail
crime (ORC) ring then funneled some of the money overseas to countries such as
Jordan and Egypt.
At the time, ORC was seen as an anomaly. But two decades later, ORC is at an
all-time high and much more dangerous criminal organizations — including
terrorist cells, major drug cartels, and the mafia — are reaping the benefits.
COVID was not the only factor driving the increase of ORC. Criminals are
taking advantage of communities where shoplifting is not prosecuted. Due to
jail overcrowding, many states raised felony thresholds
for shoplifting, effectively decriminalizing theft in some
jurisdictions and resulting in fewer arrests and prosecutions. With this
prosecutorial shift, organized criminal enterprises that previously relied on
violent and drug-related income have repositioned and/or broadened their
criminal operations to target retail.
The explosion of e-commerce has also played a large role in the uptick of ORC.
Whereas a pawn shop or other physical location was often required for these
operations a decade ago, criminals have now moved online. Today, many online
marketplaces make it relatively easy to sell a large volume of stolen products
quickly and anonymously with little or no oversight.
Fortunately, state policymakers are increasingly exploring regulatory options to
require online marketplaces to collect and verify third-party sellers'
information. The federal Integrity, Notification and Fairness in Online Retail
Marketplaces for Consumers (INFORM) Act is still making its way through
Congress and could be another tool in the fight against criminal organizations
involved in this activity.
'One of the Strongest Actions in the U.S.' to
Illinois lawmakers pass bill to combat organized retail theft
Retailers call it one of strongest responses
in nation, GOP says it doesn’t do enough
measure aimed at addressing high-profile “smash-and-grabs” and other
organized retail crime was among the scores of bills passed during the
General Assembly’s final sprint toward its Saturday morning adjournment.
Its backers, among them the Illinois attorney general and the Illinois Retail
Merchants Association, called it one of the strongest actions in the nation
to define organized retail crime while increasing
prosecutors’ ability to hold criminals accountable.
Republicans, for the most part, voted for the bill, but several GOP lawmakers
called it watered down and removed their names as cosponsors after a late
amendment was filed to appease crime victims groups and civil liberties
House Bill 1091, which will still need approval from the governor to become law,
defines “organized retail crime” in state law
with the intent of reducing offenders’ ability to avoid prosecution.
Sen. Suzy Glowiak Hilton, D-Western Springs, chief sponsor of the bill in the
Senate, said it is aimed at trying to prevent “the big fish from coercing the
small fish into stealing.”
Senate Amendment 4 changed the focus of the bill to identify ringleaders, or
“managers,” of organized retail crime rings, creating greater penalties for
them than for the low-level individuals who steal from stores and may be victims
of human trafficking.
The effort to address organized retail crime is also backed by a $5 million
investment within the state budget, allowing the attorney general’s office
to award grants to state’s attorneys and law enforcement agencies that
investigate and prosecute organized retail crime.

Public safety in southern Dallas is top of
mind for residents and the Dallas Police Department after two mass shootings in
two weeks with 2 dead and 25 injured.
As communities across southern Dallas grapple with the aftermath of two mass
shootings in only two weeks, police Chief Eddie García remains adamant that his
officers care about the region and are actively planning to better protect its
people. He said many of
the small grids where the department heightened its presence in recent
months were in southern Dallas, which has helped violent crime drop there
Department statistics updated Thursday show that even with the recent shootings,
violent crime is down in the region’s three police divisions. Across the
city’s southeast, south central and southwest divisions, there have been 1,493
violent crimes this year — 215 fewer than this point in 2021. Neighborhoods in
those divisions include north, west, east and southeast Oak Cliff, Red Bird,
Mountain Creek, South Dallas, southeast Dallas, Pleasant Grove and Rylie.
The murder count across southern Dallas is about the same as last year (38 down
1). Police tallied 1,129 aggravated assaults, 118 fewer than last year, & 277
robberies, a decrease of 29 from 2021, down 9%.
García said 23 of the 47 grids in Dallas where police focused efforts the
past 90 days as part of the chief’s violent-crime plan are in southern Dallas.
He said officers have been out across the area not only weeding out crime, but
also infusing positivity so people don’t only see police “in a moment of

increased police presence in the past six months, but “a notable, intentional
effort” to better community relations.
“It’s not about a lack of officers — it’s a lack of mental health resources, a
lack of education, a lack of support for the youth in this community,” Tyehimba
said. “These streets are telling them who they are before they have a chance to
decide for themselves. Police can’t change that. Only community can change

More Than Two Dozen States See Surge of COVID
Mask mandates return as COVID-19 cases rise across U.S.
More than two dozen states across the country reported a jump in cases over
the last eight days, although hospitalizations and deaths have not seen a
commensurate rise. Nearly 1 million Americans have died of COVID-19, with an
500 people succumbing to the disease every day, according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Philadelphia health commissioner Dr. Cheryl Bettigole said in a press conference
on Monday that residents would have to dig up their masks again. The city will
enforce a mask mandate starting April 18, requiring people to wear facial
coverings inside all businesses in Philadelphia.
Bettigole noted that COVID-19 cases have increased by more than 50% in a
10-day span. Although hospitalizations remain low due to COVID-19, she
expects another wave of the disease linked to the
Omicron BA.2 subvariant, which is now dominant in the U.S.

they cause tension between them and customers who don't wish to cover their
faces. But Bettigole reiterated that business and public health interests are

Welcome back brick and mortar
As states relax COVID-19 restrictions, shoppers are venturing back into stores.
While the confluence of bankruptcy, the economy (before and during the pandemic)
and government mandates contributed to store closures, brick and mortar is
making a rebound.
"Whether our customers begin their journey in a store and then purchase online,
or vice versa, our focus is on creating a seamless shopping experience at every
customer touch point. Our physical retail stores will complement all that we
are doing in e-commerce, allowing us to engage with our customers and bring
our brands to life in a new way," Sherwin said.
Retailers enter the metaverse
Retailers are connecting with consumers in the metaverse in a variety of ways.
For example, by creating a virtual world where they can build their own stores,
meet friends, role play and even make purchases like Forever 21's experience on
Roblox. Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY, Estée Lauder, Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander McQueen
participated in Decentraland's Metaverse Fashion Week this March.

The Flood of Retail Bankruptcies Has Stopped
Retail bankruptcy risks still low after 2020's flood: report
Strong operating performances led to last year's
decline in retail bankruptcies, as did the wave of companies that filed
in 2020, according to a new report from Fitch Ratings.
At present, just four retail companies in the ratings agency's coverage universe
are on Fitch's list of at-risk loans, down from nine a year ago. They are:
Men's Wearhouse, Boardriders, Nine West Holdings and the multi-level marketing
company Isagenix International.

retailers that filed in the spring and summer of 2020 almost unanimously
cited the pandemic as the chief driver for seeking protection from
In reality, many of the companies that filed during that time had been
financially stressed and losing market share long before the advent of COVID-19.
J. Crew, Neiman Marcus, J.C. Penney and others all struggled with debt
servicing, losses, market share depletion and unprofitable locations
pre-pandemic. High debt loads were especially problematic, given the investment
levels needed to keep up with the sales gains of online, mass market and
To be sure, the
revenue losses retailers suffered in 2020 during an extended period of store
made life even more difficult. Those were bankruptcies that may have
happened in 2021, 2022, 2023 and so on, but they happened in 2020 amid
unprecedented market events.
For now, the risks in the retail market remain low, by Fitch's tally. The
analysts estimate 2022's default rate in the industry to be 3% at the end of the
fiscal year, down from nearly 20% a year ago.

DOJ's Global Cybercrime Crackdown Continues
Justice Department seizes major cybercrime spot RaidForums
The Department of Justice seized popular online cybercriminal marketplace
RaidForums, according to
recently unsealed criminal charges against the website’s founder, Diogo
which DOJ announced Tuesday, is the latest massive sweep by the U.S.
government and international law enforcement partners of online marketplaces
where hackers buy and sell data. RaidForums boasted at one point of having
close to 10 billion pieces of personally identifiable information for sale,
making it one of the biggest destinations for cybercriminals.
According to the affidavit filed by law enforcement, RaidForums operated from
around 2016 through Feb. 22 of this year as a massive online marketplace for
individuals to buy and sell hacked and stolen data, including sensitive personal
and financial information from victims in the United States. Among those
leaked data from 178 million Facebook users.
“The takedown of this online market for the resale of hacked or stolen data
disrupts one of the major ways cybercriminals profit from the large-scale theft
of sensitive personal and financial information,” said Assistant Attorney
General Kenneth Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.
According to court documents, as a part of the investigation, law enforcement
obtained a copy of the backend of RaidForums’ database, granting them a treasure
trove of information on forum members including account registration
information, user IP addresses and private messages with other members.
The court records
confirm suspicions from researchers that the sudden shuttering of RaidForums
in February was the work of law enforcement. At that time, no parties took
responsibility for the shutdown and researchers later found a relaunched version
of the website.
The takedown was the result of a joint law enforcement effort
coordinated by Europol and involving United States, United Kingdom, Sweden,
Portugal and Romania.
The RaidForums takedown is a part of an ongoing effort by international law
enforcement to take out infrastructure cybercriminals use to make and
launder profits. Last week German authorities
took down another major online crime marketplace, the dark web market Hydra.
Stay Current on Cybersecurity Trends
Why Ransomware Should Be On Every Cybersecurity Team's Radar
It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago
that ransomware attacks were a novelty. Now they’ve become so frequent; it’s
more a matter of when, not if.
Ransomware has become such a reliable source of income that threat actors keep
returning to the well. There’s no industry or business model ransomware
threat actors won’t target; we’ve seen public schools, hospitals, charities
and countless mom-and-pop businesses all fall prey to these attacks.
We know cybercriminals are constantly innovating, which means ransomware attacks
will be advancing accordingly. Developments like ransomware as a service (RaaS),
in which developers sell or lease the ransomware to other cybercriminals,
highlight the importance of staying current on cybersecurity trends.
1. For many businesses, working from home is the way of
According to Bitglass’ 2020 Remote Work Report (via
Infosecurity Magazine), 84% of organizations will keep remote work as the
norm even as Covid-19 restrictions are being lifted all over the country.
And that means hackers will be coming for networks that are extremely
vulnerable: employees’ home networks.
2. The cost of ransomware is going up.
This isn’t exactly breaking news. In 2021, CNA Financial
paid $40 million in ransom after a cyberattack. According to
Cybersecurity Ventures, victims could pay roughly $265 billion annually
by 2031, factoring in a cost increase of 30% every year for the next decade.
But the harm goes beyond the ransom—there’s the revenue lost while getting the
affected business up and running again.
Estimates are that ransomware attacks cause about 15 business days of
downtime, with some leading to victims losing around $8,500 an hour.
3. While attackers are working hard, defenders are
innovating just as quickly.
This is the most encouraging thing to remember, but it also requires proactivity
from all of us to matter. The first step we should take is to not wait for an
attack to happen; rather, we should do a ransomware readiness assessment now.
Study your incident response and remediation methodology, asset logging and
alerting, automation opportunities and notification procedures to determine how
to minimize the damage and get on your feet again. Secure remote devices. Enable
two-factor authentication. Look at zero-trust architecture models.

Canada's COVID-Retail Impact
Key Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Retail Insolvencies
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns and social
distancing measures, however, made any sort of in-person retail experience a
challenge or, in many instances, impossible. The deleterious impact these public
health measures had on physical retail stores could not be totally offset by
government subsidies and landlord accommodations. Indeed, since the onset of
the pandemic, over 40 retail insolvencies – big and small
– have occurred across Canada, evidencing that the industry had a singular
vulnerability to the pandemic and related government regulations.
The emergence of the Omicron variant in late 2021 stalled nascent plans to
return to some semblance of normalcy. Recently though, public health
restrictions have begun to ease or be removed completely. It remains to be seen,
however, what the long-lasting impacts of the pandemic will be on consumer
behaviour and the physical retail industry, even in the absence of government
mandates. Moreover, as pandemic related governmental support and landlord and
lender indulgences come to an end, further turmoil in the retail sector remains
a distinct possibility.
This bulletin summarizes significant insolvency cases that occurred during
the pandemic and key legal and commercial issues that were addressed. Some
issues are arguably unique to the pandemic, while others more clearly provide
insight into the long-term approach that courts may take when balancing the
sometimes competing interests of stakeholders in a retail insolvency including
landlords, lenders, suppliers, customers and the retailers themselves.
Union Head Takes $$ From COVID Test Supplier
Toronto police to investigate former union head Jerry Dias
Dias allegedly accepted $50,000 from a COVID-19 test kit supplier
Toronto police says it is investigating the former president of Canada's largest
private sector union after the union handed over money he allegedly accepted
from a supplier of COVID-19 rapid test kits he promoted to members.
The investigation comes after Unifor announced Monday it delivered to Toronto
police the sum a complainant turned over to the union after it was allegedly
given to the person by Jerry Dias on Jan. 20. Unifor said the complainant
alleged Dias received $50,000 and gave the person $25,000 he said was from
the test kit supplier.
Unifor has refused to name the supplier and Dias committed to enter a
rehabilitation facility in the wake of the incident. Dias has long been the face
of Unifor. He led the union since 2013 and was reelected in 2016 and 2019.
He had a reputation for being tough-talking, scrappy and willing to push

'Does someone have to be killed before the government actually does
something about it?': Retail Cannabis Council
retailers in Ontario are increasingly worried about thefts they believe are
happening because of rules requiring store interiors and products be shielded
from view from the street.
“There’s always been a couple — a few — but recently
there’s been a significant increase that we’ve seen here in Ontario in robberies,”
Adam Vassos, president of the Retail Cannabis Council of Ontario (RCCO), told
Not being able to see into cannabis stores from the street is regulated by
the province. “If you’re a legal cannabis store — licensed by the province
of Ontario — you have to have your windows frosted so that patrons can’t see
inside of your store,” Vassos explained.
That has heightened fears about being robbed, despite all the security
measure inside cannabis stores. “If someone were to close that door and lock
it, nobody from the outside would know anything untoward that’s going on in
here,” said Elisa Keay, who owns K’s Pot Shop on Queen St. E. near Greenwood
“When is it going to change?” he wonders. “Does someone have to be killed
before the government actually does something about it?”
Shoppers Drug Mart #1 Most Reputable Company
Retailers Rank Highly on List of Canada’s Most Reputable Companies: Leger Study
Drug Mart is Canada’s most reputable company, according to the 25th Annual
Reputation Study by Leger,
and the Toronto Raptors is Canada’s most reputable professional sports team.
Collectively, Canadian companies are experiencing a reputation crisis, and how
they will respond is yet to be seen, said the report.
Dave Scholz, Executive Vice-President, Leger, said overall reputation scores
have dropped again this year after two years of uncertainty and change through
the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The industries hardest hit are breweries, drugstores, hospitality and
bookstores. Shoppers Drug Mart is the most reputable company this year;
however, their score is down five points from the year before,” he said.
This year, the top 10 most reputable companies have an average score of 71 out
of 100, with the highest scores (Shoppers Drug Mart and Sony) at 73. Canadian
Tire ranked number four and A&W ranked number 9.

Amazon Workplace Injuries Up 15%
Serious injuries at Amazon warehouses rose 15% in the year since Amazon pledged
to become 'Earth's Safest Place to Work'
Amazon employs one-third of all US warehouse workers, but accounts for
half the injuries, a new report shows.
the year since Amazon pledged to become "Earth's Safest Place to Work," the
serious injury rate at the company's American warehouses rose 15%, according
a new report from the union coalition Strategic Organizing Center.
The report, which was published Tuesday and relies on federal injury data, shows
that the average Amazon worker was more likely to get hurt in 2021 than they
were in 2020. This comes as
the company said it spent $300 million on worker safety and instituted a
slate of new programs it claims are designed to reduce injuries.
Despite these initiatives, Amazon employees tend to suffer nearly double the
injury rates as those at non-Amazon warehouses, according to the federal
data. They also account for an outsized number of worker injuries across the US.
In 2021, Amazon was responsible for a full half of the US warehouse industry's
reported injuries while making up only a third of its workers, according to the
Serious injury rates were also nearly 30% higher at Amazon's newer automated
warehouses, where workers keep pace with robots that rarely slow down or
stop, than at its facilities without robots, the report found. Amazon expects
workers in robotic facilities to perform as many as four times the number of
repetitive motions per hour as their counterparts in non-robotic facilities,
The New York Times previously reported.
In a statement, Amazon spokesperson Kelly Nantel said that the company's
rising injury rate was similar to industry-wide trends, which Nantel
attributed to a major warehouse hiring push amid the pandemic. The rate of
serious injury among non-Amazon warehouse workers rose by about 6% between 2020
and 2021, federal data shows.
Ongoing Investigations into Collapsed Amazon
Attorney says structural issues partially caused Amazon facility collapse
lawyer for one of the victim’s families claims engineers found structural
deficiencies in the Amazon facility in Edwardsville, Illinois which
partially collapsed in a tornado.
An EF3 tornado hit the Amazon distribution center located just off I-255
in December 2021. Now attorneys representing one of the victim’s families have
revealed new concerning details about the building that they’ve obtained through
a freedom of information request.
An attorney with the Chicago-based Clifford Law Offices, which represents the
McEwen family, said government engineers found supporting columns improperly
and inadequately holding up the 115,000 square foot structure. The law firm
says a government engineer found a considerable number of columns were not
standing and appeared to have been lifted out of the floor after the storm.
Attorneys at the firm also quote the engineer as saying that he became concerned
that he could not find any weld or bolted connection at the base of any column
but only what appeared to be some sort of caulk around the column at the
finished floor line. The engineer said the international building code
requires structural pieces to be secured against uplift from winds.
An Amazon spokesperson told the Belleville News-Democrat that it’s too soon to
know if there were structural deficiencies with the building, and Amazon is
doing its own investigation into the collapse.
Inflation Cost Online Shoppers $2.8 Billion In March, Adobe Reports
Colma, CA: Target shopper tries to stop thief
police said they arrested a man seen in a video circulating around social media,
who tried to steal a bin full of items from a Target store last month. In the
video taken March 16, a concerned shopper is seen trying to stop the theft.
"Stop that s— man! Get a f— job!" he yelled as he tried to grab the bin from the
suspect. He allegedly then called police, and they responded. Samuel Balcorta, a
28-year-old from San Francisco, was arrested and booked into jail for burglary
and grand theft, police said. Balcorta was apparently out on bail for a prior
felony case. Police confirmed the person who tried to stop the crime was not a
store employee. They said he was a citizen shopping at the store who intervened
because he was frustrated with the increase in thefts.
Madison, WI: Bogus coupons at Walmart added up to $20K in illegal discounts
dollars off a single packet of Kool-Aid. Five dollars off one of those
tree-shaped car air fresheners. Those are examples of the counterfeit coupons a
54-year-old woman is accused of trying to use at a Walmart in Monona last year.
When finally confronted about the absurd amounts on the coupons, the Milwaukee
woman, who has been identified as Rose Thomas, had a simple explanation: They
were from Florida and “Things cost more” in Florida. According to the complaint,
Thomas spent nearly three months passing similar bogus coupons at that Walmart
and walking away with tens of thousands of dollars of merchandise after paying
just a small fraction of that amount. Over the course of 13 visits, starting
last August, Thomas allegedly spent just over $1,000 dollars, but took home more
than $22,000 worth of merchandise. “It’s a case involving, in essence, a
large-scale retail theft operation in which an individual is using fake
coupons to receive significant discounts from merchandise being purchased at
Walmart,” Monona Police Chief Brian Chaney Austin said. That $21,000-plus
difference came thanks to the 4,572 coupons she used during those visits,
the complaint stated.
Prattville Police Say Two Men Committed Thefts at Lowe’s, Home Depot
Prattville Police say charges are pending against two men who are accused of
thefts at Lowe’s and Home Depot. Police say this morning at around 9:30, two
plain-clothes detectives were inside Lowe’s on an unrelated matter when they
noticed a man place a shopping cart, loaded with power tools valued at more than
$2,000, near the exit of the door and walk away. A short time later, police say
they noticed the man running out of the door with the shopping cart, followed by
Lowe’s employees. Police say one detective chased the man to a truck while
holding up his badge and announcing himself as “Police”. The other detective got
into his unmarked car, turned on his blue emergency lights and pulled behind the
truck. Police say the man tried to start the truck several times. Police say the
man got out, ran to the rear parking lot of Steak-n-Shake where he was caught
after a brief struggle. Police say the man has been identified as 43-year-old
Kevin Andrew Johnson of Montgomery. Upon further investigation, police say they
learned Johnson and another man, 51-year-old Roderick Bernard Harris of
Prattville, who was inside the truck, had committed another felony theft at Home
Depot. Police say all stolen property was recovered.
Memphis, TN: Woman steals nearly $1K worth of purses

April 6 just before 7 p.m. Police say the suspect walked into TJ Maxx on Summer

got into a four-door vehicle and left the scene. The value of the merchandise
was $960, according to police.

Houston, TX: 3 young suspects robbed Walgreens at gunpoint before police chase
violent drug store robbery turned into a police chase overnight near the

the safe. The two men reportedly took more than $3,000 when they forced the
manager and a store clerk at gunpoint to open the safe. Houston police said the
suspects left the store and got into a waiting car, where a third suspect drove

When you think you've got your job mastered, think again. That's usually when
something bad happens in one's career or company. If you reach that point, and
most everyone does, it's time to reevaluate everything you're doing. Go on the
hunt for new technology, new ideas, rewrite your program, take a fresh look at
every aspect of your department. Maybe even bring in a consultant you don't know
or have ties to, someone who will challenge you and debate with you and won't be
there to merely confirm what you're doing and agree with your approach. But
someone who will test you and force you to grow, someone who you may even be
uncomfortable with. Get out of your comfort zone and have some fun!
