Former Pilot Flying J president & 7 other executives indicted on federal charges
for $56M rebate fraud scheme
The former president of Pilot Flying J, the $31 billion truck stop company run
by the family of Gov. Bill Haslam, has been indicted in connection to a rebate
In the latest round of indictments related to the Pilot investigation that
stretches back several years, former president Mark Hazelwood and seven other
high-ranking employees were indicted this month. Although the indictments
were publicly released Tuesday, sealed indictments were filed Feb. 3.
Pilot Owner and CEO Jimmy Haslam was not among those indicted. Haslam, who is
also the owner of the NFL's Cleveland Browns, has repeatedly denied any
knowledge of any problems.
Hazelwood faces charges of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and
witness tampering, according to an indictment filed in U.S. District court
in Knoxville. Other named defendants include Scott Wombold, John Freeman, Vicki
Borden, John Spiewak, Katy Bibbe, Heather Jones and Karen Mann. All at one point
worked for Pilot.
Before Tuesday's indictment, authorities argued that Freeman, the former
director and vice president of the direct sales division who's also known as
"Stick," was deeply involved in the rebate scheme, according to federal
authorities. His profanity-laced conversations and emails were previously
released in federal court documents.
Wombold, also known as "Scooter," was vice president of the direct sales
division. Borden was director of the direct sales division and direct supervisor
of Bibbe, Hones and Mann. Spiewak was a regional sales manager who worked
remotely from Ohio, according to the indictment.
Federal authorities accuse all eight of participating in "a scheme and
artifice to defraud certain interstate trucking companies and for obtaining
money from certain interstate trucking companies by means of materially
false and fraudulent pretenses, representatives and promises."
Federal authorities argue Pilot promised fuel rebates to trucking customers
but never actually paid them out, resulting in defrauding customers of
more than $56 million and a $92 million federal penalty. Ten former Pilot
employees have pleaded guilty to charges related to the rebate scheme.
Hazelwood’s compensation was tied to the profitability of diesel fuel
sales at the company, the indictment said. The indictment also states Hazelwood
contacted a former employee who was working with federal investigators "with the
intent to hinder, delay and prevent" that employee communicating with the FBI or
As a result of the ongoing investigation, Pilot paid tens of millions in
settlements to some of the trucking customers.

Fewer pharmacy robberies in Indy but problem has moved to 'soft targets'
The record number of pharmacy robberies in Indianapolis is dropping, but the
problem may be moving elsewhere. 154 robberies were reported at pharmacies in
Indianapolis in the first five months of 2015. Only 12 were reported In the last
quarter of the year. Police credit the dramatic decline to the arrest
of 40 people who investigators say were
responsible for more than 100 robberies.
"We started aggressively working with our federal partners, making good arrests.
And at that time, CVS and Walgreens were
targeted exclusively. So we formed some great partnerships with them,"
said Lt. Craig McCart, Metro Police Robbery.
The city continues to see a decline in robberies. Just ten in the first 38 days
of 2016, compared to 18 during the same time period in 2015.
But investigators say robbers have shifted
tactics and are going after pharmacies in large grocery chains and retail
One reason for the shift to the so-called
softer targets is that CVS and Walgreens are now hiring off-duty IMPD officers
"We're ready to get ahead of the new trend
and we'll work closely with all these chains as well, the Krogers, the Marshes
and the Meijers and do the same things we did before,"
Public Active Shooter Training Skyrockets

Virtually every day this year we're seeing local news groups reporting on the

shooter situations. With classes booked
and over flowing police departments are
literally inundated with requests and
standing room only in classes. Too many to
report on we felt it necessary to report on this national wave of concern and
There's been a continued push to teach the
"fighting back to save lives" approach as
was reported by a number of agencies and endorsed by DHS earlier this year and
we've seen well over a dozen police departments report on the huge increase in
attendees to these classes in the last two weeks.
Chipotle Meeting Outlines Food Safety to Workers and Message for Public
Sick Employees caused greatest number of illnesses in 2 stores
$10M commitment to farmers for new food safety programs
Chipotle Mexican Grill closed its more than 2,000 restaurants for four hours on
Monday to hold a "virtual" town hall meeting with its employees about steps it
said it was taking to improve food safety and regain consumers' trust.
"People will come back,"
Steve Ells, the company's founder and co-chief executive,
told more than
who were connected to Chipotle's Denver headquarters via video. The company
allowed a wire-service reporter and a reporter from Fast Company into the hourlong meeting, and it tweeted some statements made by its executives and
photos of them and employees.
It also posted a video clip on Periscope of Mr. Ells announcing a
$10 million program to help small farmers who are
Chipotle suppliers shoulder the costs of putting in place the company's new food
safety system, which will require them to do more rigorous testing.
Marketing experts applauded the company for its transparency about the meeting,
but said the company would need to do a lot more to win back the trust of
consumers. Chipotle has experienced six food safety failures involving norovirus,
salmonella and E. coli since July, with more than 500 customers reporting that
they fell ill afterward. Most of those illnesses were associated with two
outbreaks of norovirus.
The norovirus contaminations that caused
the greatest number of illnesses occurred in two stores, one in Simi Valley,
Calif., and one in Boston, and were introduced to the restaurants by sick
employees, said Monty Moran, the company's co-chief executive.
Since the outbreaks, the company has
instituted paid sick leave for employees in an effort to
encourage them to stay home
and has told employees they should report their
colleagues who come to work when they are sick.
"We all need to commit today not to let this happen again:
We must not allow employees to work when they are sick."
Mr. Moran said that a salmonella outbreak in Minnesota and
Wisconsin that sickened more than 60 people was
linked to chopped tomatoes.
Collaboration between Verisk's CargoNet & Law Enforcement Leads to Recoveries &
Verisk Analytics, a leading data analytics provider, has announced that the
Georgia Bureau of Investigation-along with other law enforcement agencies-has
used the investigative support and cargo theft database of Verisk's CargoNet®
business to facilitate the arrest of multiple cargo thieves responsible for
millions of dollars in cargo theft over the past several months. Those efforts
also included the shutdown of one of the
major cargo theft rings in North America.

victim, the victim's insurance company, and law enforcement," added Cannon. "CargoNet's
assistance allowed our supervisors and case managers to reallocate precious
investigative resources to other pressing tasks."
Sears Holdings to accelerate closure of unprofitable stores
Reducing expenses by $550M to $650M
A combined 7.1% same store sales decline at Sear and Kmart stores in the fourth
quarter has parent company Sears Holdings vowing to undertake a wide range
expense reduction and cash generating moves, including
more store closings and asset sales.
Sears Holdings preannounced weak fourth quarter sales results and an anticipated
net loss of between $525 million and $625 million ahead of its earnings release
scheduled for Feb. 25. Same store sales declined 7.2% and 6.9% at Kmart and
Sears domestic stores, respectively. The company said it expects fourth quarter
revenues to total $7.3 billion and full year revenues to reach $25.1 billion.
Sears Holdings indicated that pretty much
everything is on the table when it comes
to improving liquidity and reducing expenses. For example, the company said it
would accelerate the closing of unprofitable stores, including, but not limited
to, roughly 50 stores expected to close in
the next few months and suggested Tuesday that it may raise that number.
In 2016, Sears Holdings' plans call for the a
reduction in expenses between $550 million to
$650 million following 2015 expense
reductions in the range of $765 million to $790 million. In addition to the
expense actions and store closing, Sears Holdings said it is
targeting at least $300 million of other asset
sales during the first half of the year in
addition to ongoing efforts to possibly
sell the Sears Auto Business.
The company added that it is evaluating overall staffing levels but stopped
short of announcing layoffs.
Lowe's Human Resources Managers OT Wage Suit Opt-Ins Can Stay, On Two Conditions
A New York federal magistrate
on Monday said several human resources managers who opted in to a proposed wage
class action against Lowe's that was denied conditional certification can stay
in the case, but only under two conditions that move the burden from the
retailer to the employees suing it.
Lowe's Home Center LLC employees Cynthia Augustyniak and Denise Giambrone filed
suit against the home improvement giant in New York state court in April 2014,
alleging the company and its top executives conspired to misclassify its
human resources managers and withhold overtime
wages while forcing them to work more than 40 hours each week.

What makes a "Superboss" - Uncompromising vision - self-confidence & surrounding
yourself with world-class talent
Like all superbosses, Ralph Lauren had an
uncompromising vision, in his case about
what American fashion should look like.
But with that self-confidence came the ability to hire world-class talent.
"The more talent, the brighter his light shined and he was always aware
that it was him first in that it was his concept and his business; he always had
the confidence to know that. But he did always want the best talent he could
What people sometimes miss about self-confidence is that as long as you
don't let it take control of you
and shut down every other voice, it actually
empowers you to take chances and to surround
yourself with the absolute best people. It is insecurity that dooms leaders to
fear star talent, even though chief
executive officers and entrepreneurs have the most to gain by bringing on the
Superbosses instill a sense of confidence
in their people, that they are the ones
who can accomplish great things. Part 2 tomorrow.

Help Desk Gave Passcode to Hacker over Phone
DoJ and DHS Employee Details Exposed in Latest Hack
US officials have been left red-faced yet again after an anonymous hacker
claimed to have stolen the details of 29,000 government employees including
The breached data included phone numbers, email addresses and job titles for
20,000 Department of Justice employees and a further 9000 working for the
Department of Homeland Security, according to a report on Motherboard.
The hacker is said to have compromised the email account of a DoJ employee,
attempted to log-in to a departmental portal and then phoned up the help desk
when that failed. Instead of being asked for a token, or forced to go through
additional security, the hacker was given a passcode over the phone. From there
he could log-in remotely to the computer of the staffer whose email account he'd
hacked, according to the report.
The databases of government employee information were apparently accessible from
an intranet site.
Cyber Ratings Services Can Help Thwart Hackers
New generation of tools for assessing companies' "cyber hygiene" may lower the
risk of data breaches. A new generation of cyber ratings firms, led by BitSight
Technologies and SecurityScorecard, are becoming known for rating a company's
cyber hygiene in much the same way that Moody's and S&P set the standard by
which we understand their creditworthiness. These firms could have a profound
effect on how companies understand their own level of cybersecurity and decide
which vendors they wish to select and retain.
The new cyber ratings firms size up companies like a hacker would on a
continuous basis, in a non-invasive way. They offer a numerical, FICO-like
rating or a letter grade, much like the credit rating agencies employ.
Performance levels for any of these factors can instantly raise or lower a

Smart CCTV and the Internet of Things: 2016 trends and predications
As the evolution of the physical security industry has shown us, consumer and IT
technology has had a profound effect on driving innovation and change with the
security industry, HDTV, H264 compression and Power over Ethernet being notable
examples. With this in mind the Internet of Things is also set to have
profound ramifications on the security and video surveillance industry.
IoT will allow network cameras to think independently and make smart
decisions on their own. Imagine a mesh of network cameras that correspond
between each other to alert the next camera of a person or object entering
shortly from the left of a given scene. IoT-enabled cameras may also be able to
cover up for one of their peers being damaged or obstructed.
As enthralled as we are with the individual capabilities of IoT devices, in the
security world the more important aspect of this trend is how all the components
work together to solve a tangible challenge. First of all, IoT-based systems
must be easy to design, install, maintain and use. And one size does not fit
all. Read more of how IoT will impact the CCTV world. Written by Axis

Five Arrested in $1M+ Florida Cargo Theft Ring
Attorney General Pam Bondi today announced the arrests of five Miami-Dade County
residents in connection to an organized cargo theft ring. The arrests are the
result of an investigation by Attorney General Bondi's Office of Statewide
Prosecution, with the assistance of the Miami-Dade Police Department, Miami
Metropolitan Major Theft Task Force and the Florida Highway Patrol Commercial
Vehicle and Cargo Theft Task Force.
According to the investigation, the defendants typically traveled from
Miami-Dade County in a rental vehicle to search for tractor trailers they could
easily steal. Once the defendants stole both the cargo and trailers, they
returned to Miami to sell the stolen property on the black market.
The five members of this theft ring face charges related to seven different
cargo theft incidents in Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Orange, Palm Beach and
Polk Counties. The estimated loss of stolen property amounts to more than a
● Juan Carlos Almaguer, 42;
● Alcide Frahuela Casanova, 56;
● Cecilio Guillen, 45;
● Yanier Torres, 30; and
● Julio Vega, 53.
Each defendant faces charges including, but not limited to, conspiracy to commit
racketeering and multiple counts of grand theft cargo $50,000 or more, both
first-degree felonies. If convicted, the defendants each face up to 30 years in
prison per count of conspiracy to commit racketeering and grand theft cargo
$50,000 or more. Attorney General Bondi's Office of Statewide Prosecution will
prosecute the defendants.
face Bergen County charges in ID theft ring
Five residents of the Bronx, N.Y., have been charged in connection with
allegations that they are part of a ring that stole identities of people to
purchase thousands of dollars of iPhones in Bergen County and other locations,
authorities said in a news release Monday. Three of the accused were arrested
and charged on Friday following an investigation that began in November with an
arrest in Closter, and two others remain at large, Bergen Co. Pros. Grewal said.
Aimee Gonzalez had been arrested in Closter last year after she attempted to
purchase iPhones at a Verizon Wireless store, Grewal said. He said that
authorities had determined she was a member of "an organized identity theft
ring" that used "numerous stolen identities" to purchase tens of thousands of
dollars worth of iPhones in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
KY couple sold $100,000 of stolen gift cards
Police say a husband and wife sold more than $100,000 in stolen gift cards to
three pawn shops. LMPD officials tell us there's a ring of people linked to the
scheme that involved stealing merchandise from local retailers. Derek and
Esperanza Sines were arraigned Monday morning on charges of theft and engaging
in organized crime. From November of 2013 up until last month, police say the
pair stole merchandise from local businesses like Walmart, Target, and Meijer,
then returned the merchandise for gift cards. They then sold those gift cards to
pawn shops for less than their face value in exchange for cash. The stolen gift
cards were sold at two Easy Cash stores and J&M Pawn. Police say the Sines sold
more than 660 gift cards. Police say the pair didn't act alone. They believe at
least seven other people are in on the scheme.
