Retailers Scramble to Beef Up Security Amid Violence & Theft Surge

Retailers Ramp Up Holiday Safety Measures After Wave of Violence, Thefts
Several mall shootings this weekend have cast a shadow on the busy after-Thanksgiving rush to stores as some retailers across the country deal with flash mob robbery sprees that have put a damper on holiday cheer.

These shootings are coupled with six reported "smash-and-grab" thefts on Black Friday in the Los Angeles area. Police in Los Angeles were on a "city-wide tactical alert" Friday night due to these increased robberies, authorities said.

This string of rising crime has sparked concerns on how retailers are addressing the safety of its customers, employees, and merchandise as the holiday shopping season heats up.

Nordstrom, which has been heavily affected by these flash mob robberies is beefing up its security efforts. A Nordstrom spokesperson told FN in a statement that, "The safety of our employees and customers is always our top priority, and it's important to us that we create a store environment where everyone feels safe and welcome. Given recent incidents at our stores and incidents across the industry, we're heightening our in-store security presence and implementing additional protective measures to keep everyone safe."

To accomplish this, the Seattle-based retailer said it is "positioning security personnel inside and outside of our stores" and "working closely with mall security and law enforcement to anticipate and minimize risk." The spokesperson also noted that it has implemented enhanced training and protocols "designed to ensure all our teams feel prepared to respond in the event of a safety incident."

Another major department store chain that wished to remain anonymous as to not disclose specific security measures, told FN in a statement that it "deploys both visible and plain clothed security personnel in its locations" and "coordinates closely with mall security, local and national law enforcement agencies, in assessing risk and response." The retailer added that "we take these situations very seriously, as health and safety of our colleagues and customers are our top priority."

Over at New Jersey's American Dream mega-mall, a company representative told FN that the shopping center has added additional security and K9 units for the holiday season in result to current (crime) trends. The representative went on to state that the mall has a team that "collaborates with our retail partners on loss prevention" and have "implemented an extremely successful system" designed to identify shop lifting and prevent it while in progress. Additionally, American Dream also has a "partnership with law enforcement to stay informed on New Jersey/New York as well as national crime trends. The goal is always to stay informed in order to maintain a safe environment," the representative added. footwearnews.com

Surge of Armed Security at California Shopping Malls
Gov. Newsom Enlists CA Highway Patrol To Help Stop Smash & Grab Robberies
This holiday season the California Highway Patrol
will provide additional armed protection at major shopping malls across the state as retail robberies become more frequent and brazen. Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the state officers to increase patrols on freeways adjacent to busy California shopping centers and make stops at the malls.

The CHP's Organized Retail Crime Task Force plans to also help local law enforcement investigate retail crimes and recover stolen merchandise. Since 2019, the task force has made 240 arrests and recovered $18.9 million in stolen goods.

I don't feel safe anymore," said Jocelyn Quiroz. "We try not to go to San Francisco anymore because it doesn't make sense to go there right now."

Quiroz, who chose to shop on Monday at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, said she's more vigilant of her surroundings while shopping and picky about where she goes in the wake of the recent retail smash-and-grabs.

wave of robberies have spanned the entire Bay Area. San Francisco police made multiple arrests recently in a brazen smash-and-grab at the Louis Vuitton store. About 40 thieves stole hundreds of thousands of dollars in merchandise. An estimated 80 robbers ransacked a Nordstrom in Walnut Creek. Stores in Palo Alto, Concord and San Jose have also been recently hit.

In San Jose,
police and security stepped up patrols and stood at almost every doorway at Valley Fair mall and Santa Row for Black Friday shopping.

"Full stop, we want real accountability," Gov. Newsom said. "
We want people prosecuted and we want people to feel safe this holiday season." sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com

The Politics of Surging Retail Crime
Retail thefts ratchet up reformers' rhetoric
A series of seemingly orchestrated, stunningly brazen smash-and-grabs have hammered stores in the Bay Area and Los Angeles over the past few weeks, frightening retailers and putting elected officials on the defensive. A string of Thanksgiving weekend robberies in L.A. had authorities there on tactical alert, and Bay Area law enforcement fortified their presence outside shopping areas after people broke into several stores the prior weekend.

As images and accounts of
those crimes reverberated beyond California, local and statewide leaders have vowed to crack down. Last week we saw Gov. Gavin Newsom pledge he would seek an "exponentially" greater budget outlay to help cities and counties combat property crimes, offering an echo of the rhetoric of an earlier tough-on-crime era.

"I have no empathy, no sympathy for these kinds of criminal gangs and elements," the governor said, vowing to "make an example" of perpetrators and noting his own businesses have been hit multiple times. Earlier this year,
Newsom signed legislation reconstituting an organized theft task force.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed has similarly telegraphed toughness, launching an organized retail theft initiative of her own and
floating privately funded cash rewards for tips that help break up orchestrated theft rings. Last week Attorney General Rob Bonta and a collection of Bay Area district attorneys unveiled a collective effort to stymie organized retail theft - a push that notably had the endorsement of even reformists like San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin and Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton, as well as the support of the Prosecutors Alliance, a group these progressives formed as a counterweight to the more traditional California District Attorneys Association.

California's Democratic elected officials, like the electorate writ large, have been supporting policies to lessen criminal penalties while backing a new generation of reform-minded prosecutors.

Republican critics have been eager to point out that Democratic incumbents from Newsom on down largely supported
Proposition 47 - which downgraded property crime penalties - and opposed last year's law enforcement-backed Proposition 20, which specifically sought to create a specific new crime called "organized retail theft."

Those dynamics have already helped opponents of Boudin qualify
a June recall vote to oust the first-term San Francisco district attorney. politico.com

Massive LAPD Scandal Began with Gun Store Theft
How the theft of 44 firearms from an L.A. gun store exploded into an LAPD scandal
Duenas, manager of the gun store at the Los Angeles Police Academy, had been reprimanded over the years for tardiness and sloppy record keeping, but he never took time off, according to the memo. As the store's closing supervisor, he was there each night to lock up - and hand count the inventory.

Then, in February 2020, Duenas' bosses told him he had accrued the "maximum allowable leave hours" and had to take time off, prosecutors wrote in the memo. When he did, another manager finally made the startling discovery:
Boxes meant to have guns in them were actually empty.

The resulting investigation quickly led to Duenas' arrest. But it also
uncovered a larger scandal inside the LAPD: The clientele for Duenas' stolen weapons included cops.

LAPD and L.A. County District Attorney records and interviews by The Times show that what started out as a probe into Duenas has spiraled in the last year and a half, spurring
a cascade of allegations of criminal activity, misconduct and corruption on the part of officers and commanders.

There are also dueling claims by some of the accused officers that they have been scapegoated by overzealous investigators despite doing nothing wrong and being victims themselves - not only of Duenas' deception, but of
years of negligence on the part of the LAPD to ensure proper management of the gun store, which it directed officers to use.

That alleged neglect, according to a pending claim against the city from one officer, came despite the fact that the
LAPD was aware for years of "prior negligence and mismanagement issues related to the sale, tracking, and documentation of firearms and firearm transactions" by gun store personnel.

The case
raises red flags about the LAPD's oversight of the gun store and its ability to investigate its own officers. It also offers an eye-opening window into the gun culture within the LAPD and the degree to which LAPD officers are allegedly profiting off the sale of firearms - including "off roster" guns that police officers have special access to despite their being declared unsafe for commercial sale in the state.

Investigators alleged LAPD officers, including several who are still on the job,
knowingly purchased stolen weapons from Duenas, bought and sold much larger numbers of firearms in questionable ways, and dangerously stored loaded guns in places accessible to children, according to internal police records. latimes.com

Bail Reform Driving Violent Crime
Op-Ed: Deadly result of progressive arrogance on bail reform
It's hard to beat the arrogance of Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, who actually admitted back in 2007 that his
low-bail policies would someday see a beneficiary "go out and kill somebody." Though "it's guaranteed to happen," he argued, "it does not invalidate the overall approach."

Ouch. That has to be cold comfort to the survivors of the Dancing Grannies and others
slain in the attack on the Waukesha Christmas parade, including little Jackson Sparks.

Chisholm's concession that the
$1,000 cash bond given Darrell Brooks just days before Sunday's parade carnage was "inappropriately low" won't help, either.

But his arrogance is rivaled by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Carolyn Maloney and Jamie Raskin, who just wrote the five city district attorneys demanding answers on
"excessive bail" supposedly trapping innocents on Rikers.

The three congressfolk seem unaware that Rikers' population is at its lowest in decades (other than after the early releases when COVID hit) thanks to
criminal-justice reforms that rule out any chance of jail for most perps, as well as those same DAs' refusal to even prosecute many low-level crimes. Only (some of) the truly violent can be given high bail and remanded to Rikers.

As Bob McManus notes, "Darrell E. Brooks has become the latest face of
America's deranged campaign against reasonable law enforcement." AOC & Co. should consider that face - and those of his alleged victims - before posturing again. But they won't and never will. nypost.com

COVID Hot Spots Move North

Most Dangerous COVID Variant To Date?
World Health Org. warns of very high risk posed by the omicron variant
The World Health Organization is warning that the new omicron variant of the coronavirus poses a "very high" global risk because of the possibility that it spreads more easily and might resist vaccines and immunity in people who were infected with previous strains.

In a technical brief issued Sunday, the WHO warned its 194 member states that the new variant's numerous mutations "may confer immune escape potential and possibly transmissibility advantage," and as a result "the likelihood of potential further spread of omicron at the global level is high."

It says that the risk to vulnerable populations - especially in countries with low vaccination rates - could be "substantial." npr.org

Omicron Variant 'Days Away' From Hitting NYC
NYC reinstitutes mask advisory 'at all times' indoors regardless of vax status

New York City has not identified any cases of omicron so far, according to outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio and Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi.

New York City on Monday issued an advisory strongly recommending that everyone wear masks indoors in public places at all times regardless of vaccination status, amid concern about the new, highly mutated strain of the coronavirus named omicron.

"There are no omicron cases here in New York City at this moment. It is very likely there will be, but there are no cases at this moment," de Blasio said during the update. "Our entire focus once again is going to be on vaccination. Based on everything we know, vaccination is crucial to any strategy for addressing omicron."

Chokshi said it will probably be a matter of days before omicron is detected in New York City. He said the city has a strong surveillance system that can rapidly identify omicron when it arrives. cnbc.com

LA Vaccine Mandate Enforcement Begins
Los Angeles Now Enforcing Indoor Covid Vaccine Mandate At Movie Theaters, Restaurants, Gyms; Rule Among Nation's Strictest
Los Angeles today began enforcing an ordinance requiring Angelenos patronizing indoor restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and recreational facilities, personal care establishments and some city buildings to show proof of full vaccination against Covid-19. Business owners are expected to monitor compliance.

The law went into effect on Nov. 8, but enforcement begins today after a grace period. The Department of Building and Safety can issue administrative citations to businesses that violate the ordinance. The citations will include a $1,000 fine for a second violation, $2,000 fine for a third violation and a $5,000 fine for a fourth and subsequent violations. It is unclear how aggressive enforcement officials will be.

Penalties were uncommon during last winter's more expansive business shutdowns. Two of the more intransigent local businesses met varying fates at the hands of city and county officials. Burbank-area restaurant Tinhorn Flats was forced to shut down after its permits were revoked, its doors padlocked and one of its owners arrested. Popular Agoura Hills-area restaurant Cronies, which remained open throughout the pandemic, received only $9,999 in fines.

The city's so-called SafePassLA ordinance is one of the strictest mandates of its kind in the nation, requiring people over the age of 12 to show proof of vaccination at several indoor public spaces. deadline.com

California City Refuses to Obey COVID Mandates
To protest COVID mandates, CA town declared itself a 'constitutional republic'
For Oroville Vice Mayor Scott Thomson, the father of two young boys, Gov. Gavin Newsom's mandate requiring schoolchildren to be vaccinated against COVID-19 was the final straw. He believed the government had no right to tell him what to put into his, or his children's, bodies. Many of his constituents agreed when it came to pandemic mandates.

And so, he came up with a grandiose, headline-grabbing nom de guerre for his small Northern California city. Oroville declared itself a constitutional republic. A place where the local leaders pledge to fight mandates they say go too far.

"Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens," read the declaration passed this month by the City Council.

For some, the declaration was a stand for freedom. But others in town saw it as a reckless tantrum amid an ongoing pandemic that has killed more than 73,000 Californians. Butte County, population about 220,000, has one of the state's lowest vaccination rates. As of Saturday, 47% of its residents were fully vaccinated, compared with 64% of all Californians.

Butte County's largest hospital, the 298-bed Enloe Medical Center in Chico, has averaged 26 COVID-19 patients over the last week - more than all but one hospital in Los Angeles County, home to 10 million people. yahoo.com

More European Countries Consider Vaccine Mandate for Entire Population
Making Covid-19 vaccines mandatory was once unthinkable. But European countries are showing it can work
Earlier this month, Austria took a step once unthinkable for a Western democracy: It announced that Covid-19 vaccinations would become compulsory for its entire population.

Austria's tough new measures were unveiled before the announcement of the discovery of the Omicron variant late last week, which triggered fears that the winter Covid-19 wave could be more brutal than previously thought. The news of the variant could push more countries to harden their approach, pivoting from voluntary to mandatory measures in a last-ditch effort to get shots in arms.

"It is a drastic measure. I would have preferred to go another way. But if one year in having the vaccine, of having national campaigns, of having media explaining again and again what this is about, that we have such a high degree of insecurity, of people believing in fake news ... we have a necessity to take this drastic step," Schallenberg added.

Countries elsewhere are starting to consider similarly drastic measures to persuade more people to get shots, despite criticisms that low vaccination rates made them unrealistic and would deprive millions from earning a livelihood. cnn.com

Supply Chain Crisis Updates

RILA Sends Letter to Biden
Retailers offer White House supply chain recommendations
The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) sent a letter to President Biden offering short term and long-term recommendations for additional actions the administration should take to further alleviate existing bottlenecks in our supply chains.

In the short term the letter notes:

"We appreciate the administration's recent actions to unfurl the existing disruptions, including the creation of the Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force and the Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy. It is our hope the administration will continue the same forward-thinking action to facilitate a few additional short-term steps to continue to restore the semblance of fluidity especially in southern California. These include addressing restrictive appointment system requirements that disadvantage frontline truckers and contribute to chassis and container dislocation, increasing the ability for the efficient return of empty containers with unrestricted acceptance of empties, requiring ocean carriers to accelerate evacuation of the tens of thousands of empty containers clogging the ports, and finally, helping ports address the root causes of import container dwell.

To avert an ongoing cycle of congestion in the longer term the letter states:

To "ensure that U.S ports remain globally competitive, some essential steps are clear: targeted investment is needed for infrastructure modernization; address systemic operational challenges in major U.S. ports; and enable data sharing and interoperability to facilitate end-to-end visibility. As primary users of ports and freight infrastructure, shippers should play a role in helping determine effective targeting of funds. The administration should also continue to strengthen protections for American importers and exporters and bolster the Federal Maritime Commission's work providing oversight of foreign-owned ocean carriers, alliances, and terminal operators--sending the message that fair and open supply chains are essential to the American economy."

The president met with retailers to discuss the outlook for holiday shopping amidst the supply chain disruptions. RILA members Best Buy, CVS, Food Lion, Kroger, Qurate Retail Group, and Walmart are participating in the meeting.  rila.org

Retail Leaders Meet with Biden at the White House
Major retailers tell Biden shelves are stocked for holiday season

The Washington, DC meeting with retail execs, and Biden's remarks, are intended to reassure Americans anxious about the lingering coronavirus pandemic and its impact on the economy.

President Joe Biden said his administration has made strides toward relieving U.S. supply-chain disruptions, as he met Monday with the leaders of major retailers including Walmart Inc. who assured him they have ample inventories for the holiday season.

The meeting, and Biden's remarks, were intended to reassure Americans anxious about the lingering pandemic and its impact on the economy. Polls indicate a majority of voters believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, despite reduced unemployment and growing economic output under Biden.

"We've seen some progress" in tackling logjams at ports, Biden told the business leaders who gathered at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. He said his administration's discussions with port companies and labor unions have contributed to a 40% decrease in the number of containers sitting at docks for eight days or longer.

The CEOs of Best Buy, Food Lion, Samsung North America, Qurate Retail Group, Todos Supermarket, Etsy, Mattel and Kroger were scheduled to attend in person, while Walmart CEO Doug McMillon and CVS CEO Karen Lynch made virtual appearances.

"I want to hear from each of you about what you're seeing this holiday season," Biden told them. "How well prepared are you to have products you need on your shelves? And how you've innovated and hired to overcome the supply chain challenges and keep workers safe from Covid-19 so that American people can have a holiday season they've been long hoping for."

Biden postponed a speech on supply-chain troubles and the economy planned for Monday afternoon in order to ensure he had enough time with the retail CEOs, a White House official said. He'll deliver the speech on Wednesday instead. aljazeera.com  nytimes.com

Walmart: 51% Improvement in Southern CA Port Flow; 26% Nationally
Walmart CEO says Biden supply chain push is easing bottlenecks
Walmart Inc. Chief Executive Doug McMillon on Monday hailed the Biden administration's efforts to ease supply chain bottlenecks as the holiday season gets underway, noting the decision to extend port hours was having a positive impact on the flow of goods.

"We are seeing progress. The port and transit delays are improving," McMillon told President Joe Biden during a White House meeting with CEOs to discuss supply chain issues.

"Because of what you all did to help with overnight hours, and because of the team's work to reroute to other ports, to extend our lead times, and have other creative solutions, we have seen an increase in throughput over the last four weeks of about 26% nationally in terms of getting containers through ports," he said, joining the meeting virtually.

McMillon added that Walmart had noticed a 51% improvement in flow through Southern California ports, a big help for key holiday categories like toys.

Biden, who is wrestling with U.S. inflation that recently hit a 31-year high, has taken measures to try to break supply chain logjams, including unclogging ports and expanding trucker hours. reuters.com

Retail Supply Chain Investigation
FTC probes major retailers' profit margins in supply chain investigation
The Federal Trade Commission is asking Amazon, Walmart and seven other retailers and wholesalers for internal documents, as a part of a newly launched investigation into supply chain disruptions.

The FTC said Monday that it's looking into supply chain bottlenecks that have plagued companies large and small since the coronavirus pandemic began. As part of its investigation, major companies are being asked to surrender what would normally be considered proprietary data. Each has 45 days to respond, the FTC said.

"Supply chain disruptions are upending the provision and delivery of a wide array of goods, ranging from computer chips and medicines to meat and lumber," FTC Chair Lina Khan said in a statement Monday.

Khan added that the FTC will also examine whether supply chain issues are adding to rising consumer prices or encouraging companies to engage in anticompetitive practices.

The FTC sent letters to Walmart, Amazon, Kroger, C&S Wholesale Grocers, Associated Wholesale Grocers, Procter & Gamble, Tyson Foods, McLane Co., and Kraft Heinz.

A McLane spokesman told CBS MoneyWatch Monday that the company hasn't received the FTC request yet but plans to fully comply. The other 8 companies did not immediately respond to a request from CBS MoneyWatch for comment. cbsnews.com

Supply-Chain Kinks Force Small Manufacturers to Scramble

$2.1M Walmart Shoplifting Lawsuit
Alabama woman awarded $2.1 million in Walmart shoplifting arrest lawsuit
A Mobile County jury today awarded $2.1 million in damages to a woman who sued Walmart over a 2016 incident where she was arrested for shoplifting and efforts to collect money from her to settle her charges. A lawsuit filed by Lesleigh Nurse alleged that in November 2016, Nurse was stopped when she attempted to exit a Walmart location with groceries she said she had already paid for.

Nurse said she had used a self-checkout line but the scanning device froze during the checkout and she needed an employee to assist her. However, Nurse said store employees did not accept her explanation, even though her husband and children were with her.

She was later arrested on warrants for shoplifting but her case was dismissed a year later for "want of prosecution," according to the lawsuit. Then in December 2016, according to her lawsuit, Nurse began receiving letters from a Florida law firm threatening to file a civil suit against her if she did not pay them $200, which was more than the amount of groceries she was accused of stealing. Nurse said Walmart had directed the firm to send the letters.

"The defendants have engaged in a pattern and practice of falsely accusing innocent Alabama citizens of shoplifting and thereafter attempting to collect money from the innocently accused," the suit contended.

"Walmart funds its asset protection department by intimidating those falsely accused of shoplifting out of making a claim against Walmart out of fear of protracted litigation against an almost limitlessly funded corporate giant."

According to court documents, the jury found in favor of Walmart on other claims of false arrest, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution and slander. WKRG reported that an expert testified Walmart and other major retailers routinely use the practice of settlements in states where laws allow it.

Testimony stated Walmart made hundreds of millions of dollars from the practice in a two-year period.
Defense attorneys for Walmart argued the practice is legal under Alabama law. A spokesman for Walmart said the company will be filing motions as it doesn't "believe the verdict is supported by the evidence and the damages awarded exceed what is allowed by law."

"We want our customers to have a safe, pleasant shopping experience in our stores. We take measures to help prevent, identify and appropriately handle instances of theft, which is a problem for all retailers that costs the overall U.S. economy tens of billions of dollars each year. We continue to believe our associates acted appropriately," the spokesman said. al.com

$10M Walmart Amputation Lawsuit
Florence County, SC: Jury awards $10 million to Florence woman who stepped on rusty nail at Walmart, needed amputation
A jury has awarded $10 million to a Florence County woman who sued Walmart after she needed multiple surgeries because of an infection that resulted from stepping on a rusty nail inside one of the company's stores in Florence, her lawyers said. The incident happened in June 2015 at the Walmart store on Beltline Drive in Florence, according to a news release from the Anastopoulo Law Firm, which represented April Jones.

According to the release, Jones had to have her right leg amputated above the knee following the incident. She has been in a wheelchair for six years, and the verdict will allow her to purchase a prosthetic and make her home more accessible, the law firm said.

A jury deliberated for about an hour and a half after hearing evidence in a five-day-long trial. According to the law firm, one of Walmart's experts testified during cross-examination that the nail was the cause of the injury. "The weakness of Walmart's case, among other things, was their failure to produce a video that they claim showed their conforming behavior to a company policy calling for employees to perform regular safety sweeps," the news release said. "No such evidence was presented for the duration of the five-day-long trial." wbtw.com

Record-Shattering Black Friday
CGP: Black Friday sales hit record $34.9 billion, boosted by Thanksgiving closures

Black Friday reclaimed its relevance as the key retail milestone on the way to Christmas.

Sales on Black Friday rose 12% to $34.9 billion, above the prior record of $31.2 billion set in pre-pandemic 2019, reported Customer Growth Partners, which has been tracking retail sales since 2001. Sales were up 18% from $29.7 billion in 2020.

According to CGP, the new Black Friday record was driven by three factors, starting with Thanksgiving Day store closures, which pushed demand back from Thursday evening to Friday. A host of retailers and malls shuttered their doors on the holiday similar to last year. Other factors boosting Black Friday sales were the declining online penetration of total sales and the ongoing rise in disposable personal income and spending.

CGP president Craig Johnson cautioned that despite the stellar Black Friday results the company's nationwide field team saw in malls and other venues, there are still 33 days left in the holiday shopping period. chainstoreage.com

Global Interpol Operation Nabs 1,000 Cybercriminals
Over 1,000 Individuals Arrested in Global Cybercrime-Fighting Operation

HAECHI-II initiative represents Interpol's stepped-up efforts to tackle the operators of financially motivated online scams and other cyberattacks.

Law enforcement officials across
20 countries have arrested more than 1,000 individuals for various cyber-enabled financial crimes, including investment fraud, business email compromise (BEC) attacks, money laundering, and illegal online gambling.

arrests took place over a four-month period between June and September 2021; they were part of an Interpol-coordinated operation code-named HAECHI-II that was designed to curb online financial crimes. During the operation, Interpol officials piloted a new global stop-payment mechanism called the Anti-Money Laundering Rapid Response Protocol (ARRP), which allowed them to intercept and recover nearly $27 million in illicit funds from cybercrime operations.

HAECHI-II is the
second operation in a three-year effort to take down operators of certain types of financially motivated cybercrime, such as romance scams and illegal online gambling. Nations participating in the initiative include China, Japan, Korea, India, Spain, Thailand, Indonesia, Ireland, and Philippines.

Law Enforcement on a Tear

HAECHI-II represents the
stepped-up efforts that law enforcement agencies globally - led by Interpol - are putting into tackling a wide range of cybercrime. The efforts have yielded some significant results in recent months. These include the arrests of individuals believed responsible for tens of thousands of attacks involving the use of GandCrab and REvil/Sodinikobi ransomware families worldwide. The suspects are accused of demanding more than $225 million in these attacks over a period spanning four years.

similar Interpol operation resulted in the arrest of an individual suspected of participating in the massive supply chain attack on Kaseya, which resulted in ransomware being deployed on systems belonging to thousands of downstream customers of several managed service providers.

Another recent Interpol investigation led to the arrests of
six individuals thought to be the ringleaders of the Cl0p ransomware operation. The individuals are believed responsible for facilitating international transfers of more than $500 million linked to various ransomware attacks in recent years.

While such arrests are unlikely to do little to deter cybercrime in the short term, security experts have noted that they do demonstrate
the reach, willingness, and growing ability of international law-enforcement agencies to find and nab individuals associated with major cybercrime operations. Many have said that such global cooperation is essential for the fight against cybercrime to yield results. darkreading.com

Phishing Campaign Targets IKEA Employees
IKEA Email Systems Targeted in Cyberattack

Attackers are reportedly targeting IKEA employees in a phishing campaign that leverages stolen reply-chain emails.

IKEA is battling an ongoing cyberattack where threat actors are
targeting employees in internal phishing attacks using stolen reply-chain emails.

A reply-chain email attack is when threat actors steal legitimate corporate email and then reply to them with links to malicious documents that install malware on recipients' devices.

As the reply-chain emails are legitimate emails from a company and are
commonly sent from compromised email accounts and internal servers, recipients' will trust the email and be more likely to open the malicious documents.

In internal emails seen by BleepingComputer, IKEA is
warning employees of an ongoing reply-chain phishing cyber-attack targeting internal mailboxes. These emails are also being sent from other compromised IKEA organizations and business partners.

There is an ongoing cyber-attack that is targeting Inter IKEA mailboxes. Other IKEA organisations, suppliers, and business partners are compromised by the same attack and are further spreading malicious emails to persons in Inter IKEA," explained an internal email sent to IKEA employees and seen by BleepingComputer.

"This means that
the attack can come via email from someone that you work with, from any external organisation, and as a reply to an already ongoing conversations. It is therefore difficult to detect, for which we ask you to be extra cautious." bleepingcomputer.com

Human Error - Ransomware - Phishing
Most challenging security threats for CTOs
59% of CTOs still see human error as the main security threat to their business, alongside other prominent concerns such as ransomware (49%) and phishing (36%), a research from STX Next reveals.
Despite this recognition of risk, the findings suggest that more needs to be done to properly safeguard companies against dangers, with only
26% having a dedicated cybersecurity team in place and only 50% outsourcing cyber responsibilities.

Maciej Dziergwa, CEO at STX Next, said: "Our survey shows that, despite the inexorable rise of ransomware in the last couple of years, the biggest security concern in the minds of CTOs remains the potential impact of human error. This is understandable given that in order to be successful, many types of cyberattack rely on someone inadvertently clicking a link or downloading a file.

Dziergwa believes that to further shore up security capabilities,
businesses should look closely at how disaster recovery processes have been successfully implemented, and aim to replicate these approaches for cyber.

He added: "The strong presence of disaster recovery planning shows that organizations are doing well when it comes to the more all-encompassing, overarching responsibilities that ensure the business is resilient in the face of unexpected disruption.
The next step is for leaders to apply this approach to the more granular elements of cybersecurity, including anti-ransomware tools." helpnetsecurity.com

Customer Data Stolen?
Panasonic Hit in Data Breach

Tech firm reveals that data on one of its file servers was accessed by attackers.

Panasonic recently discovered that it had suffered a data breach in which
attackers were able to reach one of its file servers and pilfer data, the company announced late last week.

The tech firm said its network was breached on Nov. 11, 2021, and "some data" on the sever was exposed to the attackers.
Still unclear, however, is whether customer or other sensitive data was stolen in the attack.

"In addition to conducting its own investigation, Panasonic is currently working with a specialist third-party organization to
investigate the leak and determine if the breach involved customers' personal information and/or sensitive information related to social infrastructure," the company said in a press announcement.  darkreading.com

Cyber Monday Sales Drop for First Time Ever
Cyber Monday online sales drop 1.4% from last year to $10.7 billion, falling for the first time ever

Still, Adobe expects the entire holiday season will see record-breaking e-commerce activity, as shoppers spread out their dollars over more days.

Consumers logged online on Monday and spent $10.7 billion,
marking a 1.4% decrease from year-ago levels, according to data from Adobe Analytics.

This year's tally marks
the first time that Adobe has tracked a slowdown in spending on major shopping days. Adobe first began reporting on e-commerce in 2012, and it analyzes more than 1 trillion visits to retailers' websites.

Despite the slowdown,
Adobe expects the entire holiday season will see record-breaking e-commerce activity, as shoppers spread out their dollars over more days.

So far,
from Nov. 1 through Cyber Monday, consumers in the United States have spent $109.8 billion online, which is up 11.9% year over year, Adobe said. And on 22 of those days, consumers purchased more than $3 billion worth of goods, another new milestone, it said.

Adobe anticipates digital
sales from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31 will hit $207 billion, which would represent record gains of 10%.

Last Cyber Monday, retailers rang up $10.8 billion in sales on the web, as more people stayed home and avoided shopping in retailers' stores due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It marked a record day for e-commerce purchases in the U.S.

The slight deceleration in online spending follows a similar pattern that played out on Thanksgiving day and on Black Friday this year, as
shoppers appeared to have spread out their dollars onto more days rather than squeezing their shopping into "Cyber Week." Some of that behavior has been encouraged by retailers, including e-commerce behemoth Amazon, that have been touting Black Friday style deals since October. cnbc.com

Amazon Workers Get Another Chance at Unionizing
Labor board calls for revote at Amazon warehouse in Alabama in major victory for union

A hearing officer found that Amazon improperly pressured workers at its Bessemer, Ala., warehouse to oppose unionizing in the first election

Workers at an Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Ala., are going to get a second shot at unionizing, after a National Labor Relations Board official called for a revote after finding that the e-commerce giant improperly interfered in the first election.

It's a major victory for the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, which was vanquished in the first vote at the warehouse last spring, with workers rejecting unionization by more than 2 to 1. That union and others have been working to crack Amazon, now the United States' second-largest private employer, which employs nearly 1 million workers at its domestic warehouses.

Getting a second chance at organizing Bessemer workers is "a big deal" for the union, said Rebecca Givan, a labor studies professor at Rutgers University.

"It confirms what workers have been saying," Givan said, "that Amazon went too far."

The do-over will bring the high-profile campaign back to the warehouse, which opened in March 2020.

The NLRB's Atlanta region director, Lisa Y. Henderson, in her decision ripped Amazon's "flagrant disregard" for an agency procedure to make union elections free and fair. She expressed particular displeasure with the company's efforts to place an unmarked U.S. Postal Service mailbox in front of the warehouse just after voting started, writing that Amazon "essentially highjacked the process and gave a strong impression that it controlled the process." washingtonpost.com

Merchandise Trackers Help Nab Organized Theft Suspects
Los Angeles, CA: Lululemon Trackers On Clothing Lead to the Goods in $15K Heist
The recent string of mass shopliftings in retail, high-end and jewelry stores has corporations desperate for a way to stop thieves, and one new strategy seems to have done just that ... resulting in several arrests. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Lululemon Athletica has been putting tracking devices on store merchandise -- not necessarily to stop the theft from happening, but to recover lost goods after the crime takes place.

We're told as a result of the trackers, police were recently able to track down several women in a vehicle in Orange County, shortly after they'd hit a Lululemon store in Los Angeles. Cops recovered around $15,000 worth of stolen Lulu gear when they pulled over the vehicle ... along with another $5,000 in goods stolen from other stores in the area.

Santa Clara, CA: Shoe store hit by large group of thieves twice in less than a week
Police said Monday they are following up on leads after a shoe store in Santa Clara was hit twice in less than a week by a large group of burglars. During both incidents at the store in the 2000 block of El Camino Real, a group of 15-30 people forced their way indoors and stole shoes and clothing, Santa Clara police said. In the latest heist, the business was burglarized about 11:30 p.m. Sunday. Officers responding to a report of the burglary arrived to find several cars fleeing the scene in different directions. Last week, on Nov. 23, the same business was burglarized about 1:15 a.m. No injuries have been reported, police said, and no suspects have been arrested.

New ORC Alliance Across California
San Joaquin County, CA: Prosecutors form alliance to combat surging Organized Retail Theft
While the Manteca Police Department has stepped up its active work to prevent organized retail theft by dedicating a detective to the burgeoning crime, it now looks like they're going to be getting help. Last week San Joaquin County District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar announced a partnership between Northern California prosecutors that will allow for better cooperation and communication across counties where the thefts are taking place. It's not uncommon for a group that is arrested for the crime - where they target specific items from stores and leave with large quantities of merchandise without paying in hopes of flipping it online quickly - to be found as suspects in a number of other similar crimes across a wide region.

In addition to San Joaquin County, the newly-formed
alliance will include Contra Costa, Alameda, San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, and Santa Clara Counties - covering a wide swath of Northern California that is home to more than 7 million people.

"Organized retail theft has adverse and costly impacts on business owners and consumers alike," San Joaquin County District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar said in a release about the cooperative effort. "Through a partnership with our neighboring counties, we will hold all parties accountable, including fencing rings and individuals who purchase stolen goods. "We commend Governor Newsom and Attorney General Bonta for taking organized retail theft seriously and we implore the community to report suspicious resell activity to assist law enforcement's efforts in tracking organized retail theft rings." The San Joaquin County District Attorney's office spearheaded the attempts at collaborating and bringing the affected parties to the table to work for a solution.

Seekonk, MA: Burglary suspect crashes car, dies after shootout with police
The Bristol County District Attorney's office is investigating a police-involved shooting in Seekonk that left the suspect dead.

While on scene officers found the male suspect in the parking lot of another business on Route 6 before he fled in a black Honda heading east. When the suspect approached the intersection of School Street, he lost control of the car, hit a curb, and rolled onto its passenger side off of the road, the DA's office said. Two Seekonk officers arrived at the crash and that's when the DA's office says the suspect opened fire on them with a 7.62-millimeter AK-47 model rifle. Officers then returned fire. wcvb.com

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

Albuquerque, NM: Business goes cashless after being robbed multiple times
Jocelyn Saul has been working at the Subway on Montano and Taylor Ranch Road since May. "I was afraid that he was going to pull the trigger," Saul said. Saul is talking about her first experience with a robbery, since working at Subway she has been a victim of three. "He had pulled out a gun, and then immediately he had told me to give him whatever I had in the register. So, my coworker, who was with me at the time, helped me do that and she helped me get into the register and give him all the money. He then proceeded to tell us to get on the ground while aiming the gun at us," said Saul.

Robberies are on an upward trend in Albuquerque, according to the Albuquerque Police Department's midyear report released in August the city has seen 748 robberies compared to 694 in 2020. "I feel like it's frightening to think that businesses all over are getting robbed and having money stolen from them having to go through these scary experiences," Saul said. Because of the robberies, the subway has now decided to go cashless. "We started taking no cash," Saul said. One customer eating at the Subway understands why the business has decided to make the change. "If they create an unsafe working environment by having cash, when they know that a barracuda or a shark is going to show up and be gone by the time the police arrive in half an hour. That they have to do something," said Kenny Sutton, a customer. But even with the new store policy, Saul said she still has had people try to rob the store. "I had one experience the other night. When I told them 'We did not have anything,' they asked, 'Are you serious?' And then they looked at me, looked at each other, grabbed our tip jar and ran," Saul said. The Subway isn't the only store that has made this change. The Family Dollar in the same shopping center has gone cashless. koat.com

Olympia, WA: Police Searching for Suspect in Capital Mall Armed Robbery Sunday Night

When store security tried to contact the man in the parking lot, he tossed the items to the ground and retrieved a handgun from a small blue sports car nearby, pointing it at the employees. Lower said the man left in the blue car before police arrived.

Suspect in Walnut Creek Nordstrom Flash Robbery Appears in Court
One of three suspects arrested in the violent flash robbery at Walnut Creek's Nordstrom appeared in court Monday. Business leaders say accountability is key in making sure shoppers feel safe this holiday season. "When we were walking up, I said we would be nervous if it was closer to closing time," said shopper Janet Wood. Shoppers said they can't forget the images in darkness where police said dozens of organized thieves raided Nordstrom on Nov. 20. Three suspects, Dana Dawson, Joshua Underwood and Rodney Robinson face charges including robbery and using force and fear against Nordstrom employees. In court, the prosecutor said Robinson had $2,000 of stolen Nordstrom merchandise.

NBC Bay Area spoke with Robinson's godfather Monday and he said he was hoping he'd be released but that didn't happen. The judge denied the request by the defense attorney. Instead, Robinson remains in custody, while two other suspects, who were released pending their court cases, will be arraigned Tuesday.

Miami, FL: Man With Baseball Bat Robs South Miami-Dade Dollar General Twice
