made $10,000 a month
Hitting Safeway stores and selling on eBay

Woodburn, Oregon man, John Weisberg, using the nic
"myotherjob2001" made $10,000 a month hitting Safeway stores in Washington and Oregon stealing everything from Oil of Olay to teeth whitening stripes and selling it on eBay.  He made $50,000 in sales in the first five months of this year and he was captured on video tape 105 times in Safeway stores.  He shipped the merchandise across the country and after a seven month investigation by the FBI and retail investigators at Safeway, Target, and Woodburn police he was stopped.

A former Circuit City employee in California, John was caught stealing there, prosecuted and served a 30-day work program.  Selling merchandise for 55% of its retail value he built his business on eBay and was actually receiving "rave reviews" from buyers. Sometimes hitting multiple stores in a day, he worked the Interstate 5 corridor from Kelso and Longview, Wash. to Corvallis and Springfield, Ore.

Yesterday, he plead not guilty in U.S. District Court in Portland to a federal indictment and will be tried on Sept. 27.

Great job Safeway and Target of stopping this ORC criminal and ensuring they had enough evidence to obtain a federal indictment. While they could have stopped him earlier, they worked tirelessly on gathering enough evidence to make sure the punishment fits the crime. "We don't want it to be treated as petty theft," said Dan Floyd, spokesman for Safeway's Oregon and southwest Washington region.
