ORC ring leader & eBay seller skips bail and disappears in Clark County, WA.  A Clark County judge on Wednesday authorized a warrant for the arrest of a former Meals on Wheels board member who vanished after being charged with operating a sham business buying and selling fraudulently-obtained gift cards. Fred J. Engh, 30, was released May 31 on $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty to 55 charges. Engh is accused of leading a network of shoplifters who swiped merchandise from stores and then returned the items for store credit on a gift card. Then, the shoplifters allegedly sold the gift cards to Engh for about 40 percent to 75 percent of face value. He is accused of purchasing the goods, knowing that they were stolen, and selling them from his home on eBay for hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit. The organized shoplifting ring operated in Washington, Oregon and Nevada. Clark County sheriff’s detectives began investigating Engh in February after meeting with multiple retailers who provided information that Engh was inquiring into the value of hundreds of gift cards.
