The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact
INFORM Consumers Act Makes NDAA Final Cut
Hanson, RILA senior executive vice president, public affairs, at the
Retail Industry Leadership
Association (RILA) issued the following statement in response to the news
that the INFORM Consumers Act was included in the Senate’s 2023 National Defense
Authorization Act (NDAA):
“RILA applauds the inclusion of the INFORM Consumers Act in the Senate’s
NDAA substitute. It is an extraordinary step towards curbing the growth of
organized retail crime. This bipartisan legislation will modernize consumer
protection laws, increase transparency and accountability, and make it much
harder for criminals to sell counterfeit and stolen products to unsuspecting
“Retailers thank Senators Dick Durbin and Bill Cassidy for their tireless
efforts on this critical issue that will help deter organized retail crime and
protect American families, communities, and retail employees. We look forward to
working with members of Congress to see this pivotal piece of legislation makes
it to the president’s desk.”
Chicago Crime Closures
We must rein in violent crime to help those who need economic opportunity
Businesses are moving out of cities and
neighborhoods with rising crime rates.
Americans are more worried about crime than they have been in decades. A
recent poll found that 8 in every 10 Americans say they worry about crime
either “a great deal” (53%) or “a fair amount” (27%).
fear is driving businesses large and small out of cities and neighborhoods
with rising crime rates. By abandoning these high-risk locations, these
businesses take with them any job opportunities they provide to poorer
Local and state governments must focus on reducing violent crime, not
just as necessary to protect human life but also because doing so is a
prerequisite to real economic opportunity in poor communities.
Increased concern about crime has followed a sharp increase in violent crime,
especially homicides over the last six years. In 2021,
12 major cities saw their deadliest year on record.
Chicago had its deadliest year
in a quarter century.
McDonald’s President and CEO Chris Kempczinski noted that out-of-control
violent crime, homelessness and drug overdoses in Chicago were negatively
impacting both McDonalds’ restaurant locations and corporate recruitment to the
city. He’s committed to staying in Chicago, but other companies across the
country are already closing down retail locations in
areas experiencing surges in crime.
Starbucks announced it would close 16 locations in Portland, Seattle, Los
Angeles, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., over safety concerns. Walgreens
is closing five stores in San Francisco due to rampant crime. Small
businesses from Seattle to Minnesota are citing crime as the reason
they’re closing their doors.
Colorado Springs Wages War on ORC
Opinion: Put retail theft on your radar
If you own a retail establishment and have been hit by shoplifters (maybe
several times) in the past year or so, you’re not alone. The U.S. Chamber of
Commerce reported late last month that “[o]ver half (56%) of small businesses
in the retail sector say they have been victims of shoplifting in the past year,”
according to survey results released Sept. 22 by the chamber. “Fifty percent of
small retailers say the issue has gotten worse over the past year,” the
organization said, adding 46 percent of impacted small businesses have been
forced to increase prices over the past year as a result.
This barely preceded the Colorado Springs Police Department’s news release
stating it “has identified an ongoing rise in retail crime across the City of
Colorado Springs, although this situation is occurring across the entire nation.
Law Enforcement has identified a nexus between retail theft cases and drug use,
often tied to the Fentanyl crisis occurring in our community.”
The same day the U.S. Chamber released its survey results, CSPD’s “Divisional
Detectives and Patrol Officers partnered with area retailers for a targeted
Shoplifting Deployment,” according to a police-issued news release. “The
deployment partnered with local loss prevention employees at various retail
stores to identify in progress shoplifts and have law enforcement contact the
shoplifters, detain, and arrest or cite the shoplifters when it applied. The
goal of the targeted deployment was to address multiple shoplifting hot spots
across the city.”
“The Chamber has also urged state and local governments to prosecute these
theft rings and enact policy changes that would help law enforcement and
prosecutors arrest and prosecute these criminals,” according to the chamber’s
Impact of the FBI's Crime Data Reporting Gap
FBI crime data gaps and inconsistent media coverage make it difficult to
determine whether crime is truly surging
New York City, murder and shooting incidents are down relative to last year,
though violent crime in general is up. Last year, the city saw
lower crime across the board than two or three decades ago, though,
again, it’s now up relative to 2020.
Data released by the FBI on Wednesday suggested that violent crime nationally
didn’t increase much in 2021 relative to 2020. That comports with
recent figures from crime victimization data from the Bureau of Justice
Statistics (BJS), which indicated that reported violent crime was flat in
2021 and down from before the pandemic.
Discussion of crime in the United States is hampered by broadly inconsistent
and uneven reporting of crime data. Some jurisdictions, like New York or
Los Angeles (where violent crime is essentially flat, year-over-year) report
data regularly. The national measure compiled by the FBI has seen
declining participation (thanks in part to a
change in what it collects) even as it operates at a substantial delay.
What’s left, then, is largely anecdotal. Stories of violent incidents, always
catnip for newscasts, are used to portray a sense of crime that may or may not
comport with reality. And Fox News has been very active in trying to portray
exactly that sense.
The lack of data is an opportunity for those who might find it useful to suggest
that crime is out of control. Though it’s hard to contextualize individual acts
of criminality, it’s easy to cast those individual acts as representative of

Police Chief Hails Success With Curfew
Prince George’s juvenile curfew enforcement will extend to end of year
The curfew, which began Sept. 9 for those younger than 17, was set to expire
Wednesday before county officials said they would continue to enforce the
Alsobrooks and Police Chief Malik Aziz at a news conference hailed the curfew
as a success, saying certain crimes have gone down, parents became engaged
and community members came together to keep young people safe.
Officials said overall crime decreased by 20 percent during the hours of
curfew in the first month of enforcement, between Sept. 9 and Oct. 11,
compared to the previous 30 days. Officials also said carjackings, contact
shootings and violent crime in general also dropped, citing broad percentages.
The specific impact of the curfew, however, is unclear. Crime often dips at this
time of year before rising as the holiday season begins, according to a review
of data since 2017 by The Washington Post.

Why We're Seeing So Many Aggressive Consumers
New Research Points to the Pandemic and, Well,
It's official: The pandemic turned us all into jerks
You've probably felt it. More than two years into the coronavirus pandemic,
the world just feels all-round grumpier. Misanthropic. Maybe even
antisocial. People get into fights on airplanes, drive wildly. We all have a
little less time for one another's nonsense. It's the prickling sense that
someone might snap at you at any moment — or that you might do the snapping.
Well, you're not wrong.
New research published in the journal PLOS One finds that the
personalities of Americans have, in fact, changed. They've gotten more
unpleasant. We're more argumentative, less diligent in our home and work lives,
less likely to strike up a conversation with a stranger or call an old friend,
and less excited about new things. COVID-19 turned us into jerks.
But unlike other disasters, this one didn't come and go in a few days or weeks,
like a hurricane or a flood. And the longer it dragged on, the more of a toll
it took on our personalities. "The only thing that went wrong," says Brent
Roberts, a psychologist and expert in personality change at the University of
Illinois, "is the goddamn pandemic kept going." In this theory, time is
the unaccounted-for variable in the disaster-personality equation. Our early
spirit gave way to despair. And our personalities took a turn for the worse.
But Sutin isn't sure the changes can be blamed on COVID alone. It's impossible
to untangle the pandemic from — well, everything. "This was an American
sample, so looking at all of the events of the last two and a half years, a lot
of things have been going on," Sutin says. Black Lives Matter, January 6,
record-breaking heat waves, hurricanes, soaring inflation, stock-market crashes
— are you feeling depressed yet? Less agreeable? More introverted?

One of Fastest Growing Job Sectors in U.S.
Not Just in Retail But in Entire U.S.
Warehousing and transportation has been one of the
fastest-growing jobs sectors in the country in recent years, as booming
e-commerce demand driven by Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns pushed companies to fill
up distribution space to get goods closer to consumers.
Warehousing and storage companies added nearly 100,000 jobs over the past year,
according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and employment in the sector has
doubled since 2016, reaching nearly 1.8 million workers in September 2022,
according to BLS.
Questions about the
working conditions at warehouses have also grown as the sector has
expanded, with companies coming under growing scrutiny over the physical
demands of work in the sprawling industrial buildings. Companies
have faced questions over the treatment of workers in jobs that can require
long hours of walking and lifting.
Editor's Note: Which gives rise to a whole set of increased risk for the
AP teams and service providers.
From safety issues, workers compensation claims, the rising unionization
efforts, business continuity and crisis management, workplace violence,
automation and its impact on job force reductions, and the need for more
concentrated effort, payroll, and budget to manage the growth. All the while
ensuring a safe and positive work environment for the associates. Because it's
going to continue to grow and double again regardless of the economic dips and
Just look at what happened at Amazon in the last week and just yesterday.
Three Amazon Warehouses Have Mysteriously Caught Fire in One Week
A fire has broken out at an Amazon facility for the third time this week,
according to union organizers.
Christian Smalls, president of the Amazon Labor Union, tweeted that the ALB1
fulfilment center in Albany, New York, was on fire early Thursday
On Monday, Amazon employees in Madison, Alabama, were evacuated after a
fire broke out in a warehouse, according to local news station WAFF.
Also on Monday, a fire that originated in a trash compactor
disrupted operations at an Amazon warehouse in the Staten Island borough
of New York City. The Staten Island facility voted to unionize earlier this
Amazon suspends at least 50 Staten Island union workers after protest over
Approximately 100 workers held a sit-down protest at the facility’s main
office, demanding to be sent home with pay. "They were saying ‘we
don’t feel safe, we don’t feel safe to work,'" Palmer explained.
The workers – who are suspended indefinitely as Amazon probes the incident
– were notified by email and phone that their security badges would be
unusable during the investigation. The number of
suspensions may increase over the coming days.
Warehouse workers at a separate facility near Albany will be voting in their
own union election next week.
Amazon workers hold walkouts on Prime Day in Georgia and Illinois
Protests took place at four Amazon warehouses
workers staged walkouts at four of the e-commerce giant's warehouses Tuesday,
making demands of the company as it launched its
second Prime Day of the year.
The first protest took place in the morning at the
retailer's Stone Mountain, Georgia, site, where workers marched
outside with signs in front of the building.
Amazon workers at two distribution centers in Joliet, Illinois, also held
walkouts over their lunch breaks on Tuesday.
The employees in Joliet were joined by Black Workers Matter Chicago, the
Teamsters union and other groups. At one point, the demonstrators blocked
trucks from entering the facility.
The small protests in Georgia and Illinois on Tuesday appear to be isolated. To
put the demonstrations in perspective.

Starbucks Ex-Manager Says to NLRB Judge in testimony - He Was Told to Punish
David Almond, who managed a series of Buffalo-area cafes, testified under oath
National Labor Relations Board judge in August that Starbucks higher-ups
listed names of employees the company had determined supported the union, and
told him to punish them. The transcript of Almond’s testimony was obtained by
Bloomberg through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Starbucks Workers United has filed labor board claims accusing the company of
illegally terminating more than 80 of its supporters,
including a prominent activist in the Buffalo region recently fired for
refusing to remove a suicide awareness pin.
Editor's Note: We haven't experienced this type of nationalized
activity since the 70's. Which is when I was starting my career in retail
security and worked thirteen union strikes. With the independent Teamsters, the
trucking industry nationwide, did a wild-cat walk out because of the Carter
administration's gas prices. With all the truckers nationwide joining in.
It was the scariest experience not just for me but for everyone. As people would
throw rocks from over passes at scab truck drivers, killing a number of them.
And hundreds of protestors blocking warehouse gates blocking trucks. While
security rode shot gun in the cabs during routes to stores and join a line at
the gates during the protests.
Not that that would happen again. But the unions are gaining steam as the
economic gaps widen and inflation continues.
Bottom line is LP has to be aware and have a plan at every retailer. -Gus

Castelli, 31, of Smithtown sold faux Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Dior, Ugg, and Louis

store, Linny’s Boutique in Plainview, officials said.
Nassau County detectives recovered 22 printing presses at the store that were
used to create “thousands of synthetic heat-sealed counterfeit labels,” which
Castelli would then attach to the cheap clothing items before jacking their

opposed the bill for its focus on online third-party marketplaces
(Amazon’s marketplace is by far the largest in the U.S.). The company also said
last spring that the bill favored “large brick-and-mortar retailers, at the
expense of small businesses that sell online, while doing nothing to prevent
fraud and abuse or hold bad actors accountable.”
By the fall, Amazon had thrown its support behind a modified House of
Representatives version of the bill. Yet
Amazon still knocked “big-box retailers like Walmart and Home Depot, and
their respective lobbying groups” for what it described as “push[ing]
legislation at the federal and state levels with the purported goal of
preventing the online sale of counterfeit items and stolen goods” but that
favored brick-and-mortar retail.

Rail union rejects deal brokered by White House, renewing possibility of U.S.
A union representing about 12,000 rail workers on Monday voted down a
tentative contract that was brokered by the White House last month ahead of

Cyber-Related Complaints Up 180%
Is the cyber insurance industry on the brink of collapse?
An industry that is too important to fail
suffered claims of almost $7 billion in 2021 and now looks to take the lead in
reducing client risk.
The cyber insurance industry, battered by a seemingly unending onslaught of
claims, is reaching a breaking point. According to the FBI’s latest Internet
Crime Report, cyber-related complaints have increased by more than 180% over
the last 5 years, resulting in $18.7 billion in losses.
Last year, some carriers ended up paying out more in claims than they received
from premiums. As a result, the industry is now demanding that customers reduce
their exposure or face steep price increases or quite possibly cancellations.
No longer optional
Survival of the cyber insurance industry is paramount. According to the National
Cyber Security Alliance, 60% of small to medium businesses (SMBs) fold within
six months of a cyberattack. The irony is that while SMBs cannot afford to
go without cyber insurance, many soon won’t be able to afford the insurance
Business owners and CEOs are feeling the seriousness of the situation when their
renewal letters arrive. Premiums – which increased by as much as 300% in 2021,
according to a report by Risk Placement Services Inc. – are expected to escalate
at an even more dramatic pace moving forward. At the same time, insurers are
adding exclusions, limiting coverage, and some are even exiting the market
In the past, almost all incidents were covered regardless of fault. Today, if a
company fails to properly train employees or demonstrates poor security hygiene
and gets hacked, its claim may be denied and future access to coverage could
also be in jeopardy.
Dramatic rise in attacks
The cyber insurance industry may have become a victim of its own success. As
insurers began to offer more coverage, businesses may not have felt the need to
be as vigilant in their defenses. Often, they would quickly pay ransomware
assuming they would be reimbursed. As a result, cybercriminals may have become
incentivized to target companies with cyber insurance policies in place.

because NSA has noticed them being exploited recently by "actors of concern with
sufficient capabilities to compromise and expand beyond the initial access to

Canada's Most Dangerous Cities Have Been Ranked
Canada's most dangerous cities aren't necessarily where you'd expect them

Taking the top spot in Canada is Surrey, B.C., which scored over 63 out
of 100 on the Crime Index and just 36.66 out of 100 on the safety scale. Also
listed within the top five most dangerous places in Canada are Lethbridge

cities based on levels of violent crime. It was Thompson (Manitoba) that took
the top spot on that ranking, followed by North Battleford (Saskatchewan),
Portage la Prairie (Manitoba), Prince Albert (Saskatchewan) and Quesnel (B.C.).
While big cities like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver are included in the
full lists, in both instances they score relatively well when it comes to

According to the most recent federal data on crime statistics across Canada,
Kelowna fares the worst when it comes to crime rates this year. CTV reports
that the B.C. city has a Crime Severity Index rating of 11,112 per 100,000
residents, which is the worst reported by Statistics Canada in 2022.
Like Numbeo's report, Lethbridge is also listed as one of the most dangerous
spots in Canada based on crime statistics. Overall though, it's clear that
no one spot is universally considered to be Canada's most dangerous place.
Canada Lawmakers Grapple with Same Crime Data
Confusion as U.S.
Which Kelowna mayoralty candidate is telling you the truth about crime and
is the crime capital of Canada,” Tom Dyas declared during a Kelowna
mayoralty forum Tuesday, Oct. 4, in a statement taken directly from news
headlines this year.
“I’m frustrated that we continue to use Kelowna as the crime capital of Canada
when it’s clearly not,” Mayor Colin Basran countered. He says Kelowna has the
14th highest crime rate in the province and 54th in Canada.
The problem with crime statistics is how they are tallied and categorized.
Statistics Canada, the source of Dyas’ ‘crime capital’ statement, showed earlier
this year Kelowna did indeed lead the country in crime statistics, but
that number isn’t for Kelowna alone. StatsCan uses a broader definition called
Census Metropolitan Area that, for Kelowna, includes the entire Central Okanagan.
Basran is isolating only the city he’s been responsible for, which is fair. But,
he’s wrong in saying it ranks number 14th in terms of crime rates in B.C.
cities. It actually ranks 17th among B.C. metropolitan police forces in
the Statistics Canada data.
And, just as a note, the city on its own also has a higher crime rate than the
region as a whole. Kelowna’s crime rate in 2021 was 14,363 crimes per 100,000
people versus 11,112 for the region. Kelowna, on its own, is 14th on that
list for municipal forces in B.C. with a rating of 141.9.

national police force, which was heavily criticized for using Clearview AI
software, has signed contracts to use multiple facial recognition tools. The
Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) revealed these details in documents
recently tabled in Parliament, though it says it has stopped using facial
recognition technology pending an internal review sparked by public outcry
The RCMP has been open about wanting to resume using facial recognition,
despite privacy concerns, but it has divulged little about the programs at its
Clearview AI stopped offering its services in Canada and suspended its
contract with the RCMP in July 2020, in response to a joint federal-provincial
privacy investigation. In February 2021, Canada’s federal privacy watchdog
declared that “what Clearview does is mass surveillance, and it is illegal.”
However, the RCMP seems to have used at least two other facial recognition
tools in addition to Clearview AI in its efforts to fight child sexual
exploitation and human trafficking, according to the documents, which were
provided in answer to a question from a Conservative member of Parliament.

Retailers Still Reeling from COVID - Now
Impacted by Hurricane
Hurricane Fiona Fallout Continues to Significantly Impact Atlantic Canada
Retailers Following Pandemic Challenges
has been over a week since hurricane Fiona hit Atlantic Canada and there are
still thousands of customers without power. As people are focused on
individual recovery, the
Canadian Federation of
Independent Businesses have said businesses now have to face their
reality and have a long way to go for recovery.
Fiona reached Atlantic Canada on September 23rd, causing power outages and
damages throughout the East Coast – leaving homes and businesses without
electricity for a few days or longer. Nova Scotia has also recently declared
a state of emergency for some areas that were heavily impacted to help with
“If you look at the state of businesses before Fiona hit, we still had 51
percent of our members not back to pre-pandemic levels, and we still have 65
percent of our members that have pandemic debts. So, for businesses right
now, it would not have been a pleasant hit. Some businesses have closed for an
additional week and after the last two and a half years, its hard for them and
will not be an easy situation for businesses to find themselves in,” says
“With many businesses not having electricity, the impact was direct – the
reality was they were just not able to operate,” says Gauthier. “Right now, I
think 98 percent is fully plugged back in. Realistically, businesses finding
themselves a long time without electricity has really hurt them and they are
just losing revenue.”
Canadian Retail Boosted by Workers Returning
Toronto Retail Seeing Robust Leasing Activity as Workers Return to Offices
retail report by commercial real estate firm
JLL says retail leasing
activity in Toronto should remain robust after a strong push in the second
quarter of this year.
Both enclosed and open-air Toronto retail properties have attracted new
concepts, with a special attention from first-to-market. Combining a dip in
Q1 and the subsequent rebound in Q2, on balance the first half of the year
remained on par with the first halves of 2021 and 2019, it said.
“Foot traffic is catching up, interest in in-store purchases remains high,
and pent-up demand for travel and services is leading to new openings,
especially restaurants. Many retailers and food-services operators have
concluded that this is a window of opportunity they shouldn’t miss, and some are
willing to absorb the current high construction costs ‒ even building entirely
new spaces ‒ in order to capitalize,” said JLL.
“Increasing demand for retail space, fewer available spaces, and rising
inflation and interest rates are among the primary contributors to the
acceleration of rents in Q2. Rates went up by seven per cent year-over-year,
which is in sync with the current inflation rate in Canada.

Ottawa: Frantic scene in plaza parking lot after 2 men fatally shot
men in their 20s were shot and killed in east Ottawa Wednesday night. Paramedics
said they were called to a shooting at the intersection of Tompkins Avenue and
Tenth Line Road in Orléans just before 9 p.m. Wednesday. Mussa Siddiqui, who
owns the nearby restaurant African BBQ House, said he walked over to the
Circle K in the same shopping plaza for a hot chocolate, only to re-emerge
onto a chaotic scene unfolding in the parking lot.
Siddiqui said when he stepped outside, he saw a man approaching the Circle K.
"He's like, 'I've been shot, I've been shot,' and he collapses on the floor,"
Siddiqui said. The restaurant owner and other witnesses, including a nurse,
rushed to the man's aid, Siddiqui said.
As Siddiqui ran back and forth from different stores to fetch items and warn his
neighbours that a shooting had happened, he noticed a car parked in the lot —
its passenger side door open and windshield wipers running. "And I noticed a
gentleman sitting in the front driver's side with his head up. And I figured at
that point that he probably is dead," Siddiqui said. "As soon as [police]
arrived, I told one of the officers ... 'Hey, there's a dead body over
(Update) Man convicted of shooting up Brampton strip mall is now on the run
A man convicted of spraying bullets into a Brampton strip mall as a ploy to
distract police from a smash-and-grab at a nearby jewellery store has
slipped away and is now on the run, CTV News has learned.
Peter Mitsakis, 32, was convicted on eight counts including reckless
discharge of a firearm for his role in the scheme to send police looking for an
active shooter instead of responding to the robbery, where a tow truck smashed
into the store.
Before he could be sentenced, Mitsakis took off his ankle monitoring bracelet
and disappeared, according to Ontario Superior Court Justice Andras Schreck.
Schreck didn’t let that stop him from sentencing Mitsakis to more than six years
in prison for his role in the scheme.

Nike Cracks Down Online
on Resellers & Fraudsters
Nike Moves to Crimp Resellers and Might Cancel Orders Made Using Bots
Sneaker giant adds restocking fees and account suspensions as possible
penalties for shoppers who buy goods with the intent to flip them
In a sweeping update to its rules for U.S. shoppers this month, the sneaker
giant said it could cancel orders placed with automated ordering software
or technology on its website or apps.
The company also said it could charge restocking fees, decline to issue
refunds or suspend the accounts of people it determines are buying its
shoes, apparel or other items with
the intent to resell them.
Nike previously prohibited the purchase of products for resale but the update
expands the company’s restriction and what it might do in response. Its rules
also banned purchases deemed to be fraudulent but didn’t explicitly mention the
use of software, known as bots.
Uber - Back in the FTC's Crosshairs - Right
After One Conviction
FTC probing accusations Uber has been bilking ‘Rewards’ customers: sources
August, Uber said that beginning Nov. 1 it will scrap Uber Rewards — a
program launched in 2018 that uses a free, points-based system to dole
out perks like complimentary rides and discounted food deliveries — to focus on
its paid subscription service, Uber One.
The Federal Trade Commission, however, has launched an informal investigation
into complaints that Uber is making it difficult to redeem Uber Rewards
points ahead of expiration.
By the end of the month the agency could announce a more formal investigation
into Uber ending its perk program, a source close to the FTC told the Post.
“The feds have been playing close attention to Uber — from the continued
hacks that risk consumers’ personal information to this scam-like rewards
program nonsense,” a source close to the FTC added. “Bottom line is that
there’s an Uber ‘pool’ of problems the company is facing internally.”
While it’s not clear how much money Uber could save by ending the program
without properly paying out points, people close to the
FTC believe it could be in the millions.
Holiday Prime Day shoppers seek smaller-ticket items on first day
$7.5M ORC Fencing Ring Busted
Wilmette, IL: $7.5M In Stolen Items Found In Bust Of Interstate Fencing Ring
said an investigation into a pattern of shoplifting at local businesses led to
the discovery of a coast-to-coast fencing ring trading in merchandise stolen
from Chicago area retailers. Last week, investigators executed a dozen search
warrants in Chicagoland — including locations in Chicago, Cicero, Oak Lawn and
Bolingbrook — and three in Southern California, police said. They discovered
$7.5 million worth of stolen items as well as other evidence of what
Wilmette police described as a "sophisticated criminal enterprise."
Police found 126 pallets loaded with about 278,000 individual stolen items,
according to Cmdr. Michael Robinson. Robinson said the investigation began last
fall, but the fencing ring had been in operation since at least 2020, if not
earlier. "Basically, all our retailers were experiencing the same crime
pattern," Robinson said. "The same offenders, these professional retail theft
boosters, that were just going around stealing an incredible amount of products
and selling them down in Chicago."
After stealing over-the-counter products like allergy medication and tooth
whitening strips, usually more than $1,000 worth a time, shoplifters would bring
the stolen goods to storefronts in Chicago and sell it to members of the fencing
ring for pennies on the dollar, police said. "In New York, it was being sold
to third-party distributors which would then put it back in the supply chain,"
he said. "So some of these major retailers were actually buying some of their
stolen product back inadvertently."
The other half were sold by a trio of Southern California men using
e-commerce platforms. Early in the investigation, police linked thefts at
Wilmette Walgreens, CVS and Mariano's stores to similar incidents in Shorewood,
which led to a cooperative investigation between both departments and eight
recent arrests — five in Illinois and three in California — on Will County
charges related to the fencing ring, according to police.
Chicago police assisted with undercover operations at the storefront locations,
according to Wilmette police. The investigation was also assisted by Homeland
Security Investigations, the Chicago Highway Patrol's organized retail theft
task force, the Will County State's Attorney's Office and Police Assistance Team
and the Illinois Departments of Revenue and State Police. Police said the
probe was also aided by representatives of Walgreens, Target and the retail
crime units of CVS and Kroger's.
