San Antonio international theft ring member racks up new ORC charges  Police tacked on another criminal charge against a San Antonio woman who is a suspected member of an international retail-theft ring. Piedad Perez, 32, was booked on another charge of organized retail theft. Perez had already been arrested on Wednesday, August 28, on a similar charge. According to police, Perez was involved in a San Antonio-based theft network that stole from well-known retail stores, then fenced the stolen goods on the internet. Investigators said the organization was peddling goods in Canada, Colombia, Australia, Mexico and the United States. SAPD and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security also arrested Eva Salazar, Christian Salazar, Emily Garcia and Cassandra Arenas in connection with the theft ring. Police said the Salazars were seen taking the stolen items to Perez's house. Investigators said Perez had an Ebay account that was used to sell the goods. (Source
