Civil Demand Action: Mass. Judge - Macy's collecting $500 shoplifting fines
improperly A Natick District Court judge said Macy's store security
guards act as unlicensed lawyers, collecting civil fines from accused
shoplifters without the benefit of appearing in court. Judge Douglas Stoddart,
who has twice ordered Macy's not to collect the $500 fines, said he was worried
that people felt like they were being forced to pay the fine and then were
arrested anyway. Stoddart had summoned an attorney for Macy's to appear in
Natick District Court on Tuesday to talk about the civil fines. A representative
from the state Attorney General's office also attended, but did not participate
in the proceedings.|
Stoddart said state law allows stores to civilly seek $500 from a shoplifter,
even if the person is convicted in criminal court and pays restitution. But, he
said, it does not allow stores to "coerce" the money immediately upon detention.
"They (shoplifters) were being told if they paid the $500 fine, they would not
be civilly sued in court and some said they were told they would not be
arrested. It was never designed for non-lawyers in the form of security officers
to act as lawyers in a very coercive manner," the judge said.
Stoddart said it is improper for store security to issue the fines, let alone
tell people they will not be arrested if they do so.
"I'm not sure if I have the legal authority to do what I'm doing, but I believe
I do have the power to right what's wrong," said Stoddart. "I don't think I'm
asking for much."
Daniel S. Field, a lawyer for Macy's, said he shared Stoddart's concern about
his "jurisdiction" over the fines, but understands the judge was worried.
Field said the law for the civil fine is meant to cut down on court cases,
rather than to force a small claims court proceeding for every shoplifting case.
"It's not to burden the court," Field said.
"You can't have a security guard in a closed room with a detained person
extorting money," Stoddart said.
Field said the law for the civil fine is meant to cut down on court cases,
rather than to force a small claims court proceeding for every shoplifting case.
Field said the statute about retail thefts that includes the $500 fine is
actually changing on Monday and he said the new statute is "pretty clear" it is
meant to be a "non-judicial" action.
Stoddart said his reading of the new statute does not change how it appears to
him. He said the new statute targets organized retail theft rings and does not
change the fact that civil claims have to be argued in court.
Stoddart on Tuesday did not make any ruling. He said as a "courtesy" to Field,
he would continue the hearing until April 22 to give Field and himself more time
to research the changes in the law.
Obama creates sanctions for cybercriminals
President Barack Obama has signed an executive order creating sanctions for
cybercriminals who engage in crimes against the U.S. from foreign locations. The
order allows the U.S. to impose sanctions on individuals who harm critical
infrastructure, damage computer systems, or steal trade secrets, and sensitive
information through cyberattacks based outside the U.S.
Here comes 1,743 Radio Shack - Sprint Stores - Lets hope they make it! Still
means over 2,000 store closures A bankruptcy judge has approved the
sale of more than 1,740 RadioShack stores to hedge fund Standard General,
preserving some 7,500 jobs. RadioShack's bankruptcy plan calls for Sprint, the
No. 3 U.S. wireless carrier, to operate dedicated "store within a store" shops
in most of the locations acquired by acquired by General Wireless, a newly
formed affiliate of Standard General LP. In addition to keeping close to half of
RadioShack's roughly 4,000 stores open, the deal also saves about 7.500 jobs and
the RadioShack name. chainstoreage.com
More Companies Block Employees From Filing Suits
CVS, Sears Holding Corp.'s Sears and Kmart units, Nordstrom Inc., Uber
Technologies Inc., and Halliburton Co. are among the large employers that
require or ask workers to waive their right to sue as a class. A Supreme Court
ruling is resulting in workers being asked to sign agreements that bar them from
joining class action suits. As employers try to stem the costs of lawsuits, more
companies are requiring workers to bring serious complaints to arbitration and
forbidding employees from participating in class actions. Drugstore chain CVS
Health Corp., which began an arbitration program for employees last year,
maintains that it is a faster and better way to resolve issues. "In general,
arbitration is less formal, more efficient and less time-consuming than the
traditional court process," CVS spokesman Michael DeAngelis said. "Employees who
choose to participate in the program have the ability to make the same claims
and recover the same remedies."
Pilot Flying J settles 4 rebate fraud cases
According to court records, National Retail Transportation Inc., Keystone
Freight Corp., Shoreline Transportation of Alabama Inc. and Osborn
Transportation Inc. all settled their lawsuits within the past four weeks. Three
trucking companies are still suing Pilot in federal court.
Wal-Mart Ratchets Up Pressure on Suppliers to Cut Prices
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is increasing the pressure on suppliers to cut the cost of
their products, in an effort to regain the mantle of low-price leader and turn
around its sluggish U.S. sales. Wal-Mart has long had a reputation for pressing
its suppliers to cut costs to help lower prices, but the retailer's new
leadership has embraced the concept with fresh vigor. With the growth of dollar
stores and other discounters, Wal-Mart is facing ever more competition on price,
which for many customers is the most important selling point.
Sears Holdings selling 254 stores to their own real estate investment trust for
$2.5B Sears Holding Corp. is forming a real estate investment trust
(REIT) called Seritage Growth Properties, which will purchase 254 Sears and
Kmart stores for more than $2.5 billion. Seritage will partially fund the
transaction through a public rights offering. Sears will continue to operate the
stores and lease them back from Seritage. The properties include both Sears
stores and stores Sears is leasing to other retailers.
stores and Best Buy in NYC slapped with fines under city's year-old paid sick
leave law Besides Best Buy and FedEx, Primo Cappuccino, American Girl
Cafe, Lismir Cards and the East Harlem Council for Human Services have all been
fined under the law, which guarantees time off for workers who become sick. Hit
hardest was FedEx, which city investigators walloped with $33,600 in fines after
a complaint filed by an employee triggered a broader inquiry into the courier
service last fall, officials said. The delivery service was also ordered to
credit sick leave to 165 employees across the city and pay $15,000 in
restitution to 30 employees affected under the law. A Best Buy on E. Forham Road
in the Bronx also failed to notify staffers about the law and illegally capped
sick leave hours, according to city inspectors. As a result, the
Minneapolis-based retailer agreed to pay a $525 fine and change sick leave
policies at New York branches, records show.
Two-thirds of consumers report problems using mobile-payment system Apple Pay at
checkout Almost half of users visited a store listed as an Apple Pay
merchant only to find they couldn't use the service because the location wasn't
actually accepting the system or wasn't ready to do so, according to the survey,
which drew about 3,000 respondents.

Retailers' heavy handed fraud prevention leads to loss of sales
Online retailers battling with fraud prevention are losing out on genuine sales
by treating their customers like criminals, according to a new report by
ThreatMetrix. While the cost of online orders lost to fraud is said to be around
2.92 billion pounds, ThreatMetrix says that retailers could be losing out on an
ever greater sum by employing fraud protection services that can't identify
genuine customers. According to the report, titled 'Are You Treating Your
Customers Like Criminals', authentication protocols and password prompts which
cause basket abandonment could be as much as ten times more costly than fraud.
As Biz Report notes, the task of identifying genuine and loyal customers has
become all the more difficult in the wake of rising mobile sales, with systems
unable to identify customers across multiple devices. With over 30% of all
transactions attributed to mobile and 40% of new customer accounts being created
on smartphones and tablets, tracing and securing the customer's device is
tougher than ever. "A new approach is needed to create a frictionless online
customer experiences. Instead of pouring budget into manual checks to stop
legitimate customers falling into fraud filters, retailers need to adopt a
single platform that provides comprehensive context-based authentication and
personal recognition," says ThreatMetrix. "
Mobile, mobile-only, mobile apps, smartphones: Enough said
Online and mobile measurement firm comScore Inc.'s newly released "U.S. Digital
Future in Focus 2015" annual report makes one thing perfectly clear: mobile.
For example, the comScore report, which compares December 2014 with December
2013, shows that:
● 75% of U.S. mobile phone users own smartphones, the key to anywhere/anytime
Internet access. 53% of those smartphones accessing the Internet are Android,
42% are Apple Inc. iPhones (iOS), and 5% use other mobile operating systems.
● The percentage of Internet users who go online via multiple devices has never
been higher: 75%.
● 52% of all digital time-web, apps, desktop, tablet, smartphone, wearable-is
spent within a mobile app.
So what does all of this mean for online retailing? Total U.S. retail digital
commerce grew 14% in 2014: Desktop e-commerce increased 13% while mobile
commerce jumped 28%, comScore finds. Although mobile commerce is growing at more
than twice the rate of desktop e-commerce, there still is a significant mobile
monetization gap, comScore says. As retailers continue to remove "friction" in
the mobile shopping process, especially mobile checkout, mobile sales will
accelerate, comScore says.
The number of global online shoppers will grow 50%

Is Physical Retail A Threat To Amazon?
Prosecutors Decline Theft Charges of $14,000 of Apple merchandise, Rex Chapman
To Call Kentucky Game The last time you saw Rex Chapman probably was
in this surveillance camera footage from September, showing the former NBA
shooting guard taking things off the shelves of a Scottsdale, AZ Apple store.
Police said Chapman never paid for those items; instead they said he sold the
more than $14,000 in stolen merchandise at a nearby pawn shop. Scottsdale police
arrested Chapman and charged him with nine counts of organized retail theft and
five counts of trafficking in stolen property. Police say former NBA player and
executive Rex Chapman is responsible for a string of thefts from an Apple Store
in Scottsdale. As police described it back in September, it sounded like a
fairly solid case. They've got video of him taking the items. Store employees
said he didn't pay for it. And people recognized Chapman from his playing days
with the Phoenix Suns. But yesterday Maricopa County prosecutors said they
weren't filing charges. Jerry Cobb, a spokesman for the Maricopa County
Attorney's Office, told WDRB News that after reviewing the case, prosecutors did
not file charges and have sent the case back to police for further
investigation. Cobb said no decision has been made on whether to charge Chapman.
Prosecutors have up to seven years in which to issue charges in a felony case,
he said. "We still need additional information before we make that decision,"
Cobb said. He declined to discuss specifics of the case. Chapman's lawyer
declined to comment, and a police spokesman told them that sending back a case
wasn't unusual. The only other hint as to what could have made prosecutors pull
the brakes comes later, when WDBO says that Chapman in September "began a 28-day
substance-abuse treatment program at The Brook Hospital in Louisville." All this
frees up Chapman to work the upcoming Final Four. Chapman, who played for
Kentucky, will be among the three people calling the Wildcats game for the Team
Stream on TNT.
Texas men accused of theft at Mount Pleasant, WI Best Buy; busted at Menomonee
Falls Best Buy Three Texas men are criminally charged, accused of
stealing video game items from a Best Buy store in Mount Pleasant, and they were
arrested at a Best Buy in Menomonee Falls. The following men each face a felony
charge of retail theft, intentionally taking more than $500 to $5,000 as party
to a crime: 26-year-old Jorge Palominos-Garcias, 26-year-old Marcelo Aranguiz-Raymond,
32-year-old Luis Valdes. On Monday, March 30th, shortly after 6:00 p.m., Mount
Pleasant police officers were dispatched to the Best Buy store on South Green
Bay Road in Mount Pleasant. There, they made contact with a Loss Prevention
specialist, who reported she had received an alert from staff at a Kenosha Best
Buy store regarding three men who had stolen merchandise. The Loss Prevention
officer at the Mount Pleasant store reviewed surveillance video and observed two
men enter the store at 3:11 p.m., with a third man entering at 3:12 p.m. The
pair of men who entered the store first, later identified as Aranguiz-Raymond
and Valdes headed for the store's gaming section and selected several gaming
units. They were then observed crouching down at the end of an aisle, concealing
products down their pant legs. The third man was then seen entering the gaming
area and concealing products down his pants, according to the complaint. The
Loss Prevention officer recovered the boxes that had contained the items that
were stolen, and found that inexpensive cable was placed inside them. The total
loss suffered was $1,549.97, police say. Mount Pleasant police received
information that three men were arrested in Menomonee Falls in connection with
the alleged Mount Pleasant theft - less than three hours later. A Menomonee
Falls police officer said the vehicle the men had been traveling in contained
multiple items that seemed to be brand new, including several Sony memory cards,
PlayStation games, cell phones and other items.

Nine juveniles accused of shoplifting from Academy Sports Rock Hill, SC
A group of nine children allegedly stole items from Academy Sports and Outdoors
in Rock Hill on Monday, police say. The children range in ages from 10 to 17,
according to a police report, and included five boys and four girls. A store
employee first noticed the theft Tuesday morning. He discovered the children had
entered the store around 6:45 the night before and began picking out
merchandise. They went in the bathroom and came out without the merchandise,
then left the store. The store employee told officers they probably hid the
merchandise on their bodies and then left the store without paying for it. They
all then got in a white SUV and left. The number and type of items stolen, as
well as their cost, was not available. xNine juveniles accused of shoplifting

clerk pistol-whipped and kidnapped, two customers tied up in La Marque, TX
La Marque police are searching for a man who they say was involved with a
shooting and kidnapping of a store clerk. Investigators said a group of armed
men stormed into the Stacks Liquor store off of FM 1765 near the Gulf Freeway on
Monday. They are accused of using zip ties to tie up two female customers and
then kidnapping the store clerk. "There was the victim and two patrons inside
the store, those particular two patrons were tied up and the victim was
essentially kidnapped from the store," police Detective Shelby Samuelson said.
Once outside, the suspects tried stuffing the clerk into the trunk of a vehicle,
but that didn't work. "He was placed into the trunk of the car, and then moved
from the trunk of the car into the backseat of the car and left the location,"
Samuelson said. One of the suspects then shot the victim in the knee and they
took off in the car. Someone in the area saw what was going on and called
police. A short time later, an officer in the Texas City area spotted the car
and started chasing it. The victim was able to open the back door and roll out
of the moving vehicle. The suspects crashed a short distance away. Police said
the suspects crashed into a fence and then tried to swim across the Dickinson

officers on the Dare County Narcotics Task Force: Dare County Sheriff's Office,
Kill Devil Hills Police Department, Kitty Hawk Police Department and Nags Head

Jewelry Thieves snare $4 million in merchandise from Diamonds By Monet in Inland
Empire, CA; The burglars took their time Armed with power tools, they
sawed a neat hole in the roof and dropped down into a Temecula restaurant. On
the other side of the wall sat their target, Diamonds By Monet, which held a
safe full of gemstones and jewelry. Within four hours, the thieves had cleaned
out the safe, slipping away with more than 1,500 items with a retail value of
about $4 million. No alarms ever sounded and no one was the wiser until the
restaurant owner arrived to find the mess the next morning. "That's not just
guesswork. Sounds like they did some surveillance of the place before they hit
it," said Sgt. Dean Spivacke of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. "It
actually looks like a pretty sophisticated operation." Though similar burglaries
have happened in Temecula and around Southern California in the past, police
said this was the city's largest jewelry store heist in recent memory. Joe
Hattar, the store owner, said he is devastated by the loss, which wiped out his
inventory. His insurance won't begin to cover it.

Would-be shoplifter returns to Shopko with knife in Spokane Valley, WA
Deputies arrested a man accused of threatening Shopko employees with a knife
after they confronted him for trying to steal several items from the store
Saturday in Spokane Valley. The suspect, 22-year-old Brian M. Kenny, was
arrested and booked into jail on 1st Degree Robbery charges. A Loss Prevention
Officer at Shopko in Spokane Valley grabbed Kenny's cart when he noticed him
leave the store without paying, according to the Spokane Valley Sheriff's
Office. Deputies said Kenny ran away as the officer brought the cart back into

Rite Aid pharmacy in Newport, Maine Robbed twice in three days
Newport police are appealing to the public for help in identifying a woman and a
man who held up the same Rite Aid Pharmacy on Moosehead Trail on Sunday and
Tuesday, respectively. Police Chief Leonard MacDaid said the two robberies were
conducted in similar fashion, but no determination has been made about whether
they are related. In the first robbery, about 9 a.m. Sunday, a lone woman walked
into the store on Moosehead Trail, handed a note to a store employee and escaped
with drugs. In the second hold-up, a man entered the store about 4 p.m., handed
a note to an employee and also escaped with drugs. Police would not disclose
whether a threat of violence was made in either robbery, but no weapon was shown

'semi-innocent' of theft charges High Point detectives have been
keeping an eye on Qwandania McCrimmon for nearly a year. This week they charged
her with eight counts of identity theft, 11 counts of obtaining property by
false pretenses, and multiple felony and misdemeanor counts for using a computer
to commit a crime. McCrimmon is accused of filing taxes for people in the
community but keeping the refund money for herself. Police say her primary
method was to have victim's refund money on a "Net Spend" card and then change
the mailing address to her own or that of a friend. "She would use the card for
shopping," police explained in a press release. They said her second method was
to use the victim's private information to open a fraudulent bank account in
their name without consent. Then she would create passwords and security
questions to ensure she could access the accounts and withdraw money once the
refund was deposited, police said. "I am semi-innocent. I did some of it, I'm
not gonna lie. But the rest of it I didn't," McCrimmon told FOX8 on-camera
