National and State Law Enforcement agencies create ORC taskforce in Florida.  South Florida has become a mecca for shoplifting. So much so that federal and local law enforcement agencies have joined forces to deal with organized retail crime. On Tuesday members of the task force showed off thousands of dollars in recovered goods. They said shoplifting has become a structured, big business for organized crime. “We have seen instances where rings drop off individuals at various stores, transport them from store to store to store, where they steal merchandise which is collected at the end of the day. It is then passed off to a ‘fence’ to be resold,” said Special Agent Alysa Erichs with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations. In Florida alone, the state loses an estimated $150 million in sales tax to shoplifting. (Source
