SFPD bust grocery store shoplifting ring hitting CVS, Target, Safeway, Walgreens
San Francisco police busted a big shoplifting ring this week, but not one that deals in electronics or clothes. This network steals and resells shampoo, conditioner, razor blades, batteries and the like. Police confiscated $100,000 worth of disposable razors and $40,000 worth of batteries. These thieves were after everyday items they could sell for a quick profit. Police say the ringleader would put out a daily shopping list to a network of thieves from San Francisco to Walnut Creek and Alamo. They'd shoplift the goods item by item. The goods were stolen from CVS, Target, Safeway and Walgreens stores. Police say Thai would pay cash, then re-sell them to a Mission District flea market and stores. Police called in executives for the victimized stores. They scanned the goods and figured out the whole cache is worth $300,000 - $400,000 retail. (Source

Theft ring hitting Hastings Entertainment with check fraud in Wichita Falls  A woman arrested recently, Juanita Marie Springmeyer, 28, also known as Juanita Hardy, was charged with forgery after allegedly passing a check written for more than $1,200 to Hastings Entertainment Store on May 6.

She also was arrested in January with nine others in what the Wichita County Sheriff’s Office and WFPD believed to be a burglary and drug ring. Spragins said he believes the thefts started at the end of April and the criminals are taking anything of value, specifically checkbooks, identification cards and credit and debit cards. They are maxing them out as fast as they can, Spragins said. Anyone who thinks they may have been a victim of this theft ring is urged to contact the Wichita Falls Police Department and make a report as soon as possible at 940-761-7792. (Source
