New St. Paul police unit takes aim at booming retail theft rings
St. Paul Police Department is going after the criminals with a newly formed unit focused on catching the crooks and the resellers. It would be the first organized retail crime unit in Minnesota, police say. Sgt. Charles Anderson, who is heading the department’s one-year pilot, and who works in the Western District, first began to see a pattern when he was reviewing shoplifting reports. "I think we’re overdue in addressing this specific problem,” Anderson said. With the formation of the unit, Anderson and another officer will handle all of the city’s 1,300 shoplifting cases so that they can identify what’s just a minor theft and what’s an organized enterprise. The unit’s goals are to shut down fencing operations and put boosters behind bars. (Source
