A Wolf in Sheep's clothing? "The Lone Granny Gang" ORC Thief & former Department of Justice employee is a financial fraud specialist  A 66-year-old Salem, Ore., woman who retired from the state Department of Justice's financial fraud section hitting Safeway stores on at least 17 occasions and stealing Rogaine, razors and other health and beauty merchandise, and selling it on Amazon's site or under the moniker "eaglecap2" on eBay. Informants made purchases from the sites, and the packages sent to them identified Armstrong as the seller on the shipping labels. In one e-mail communication with a buyer, Armstrong wrote that she buys low and sells high: "It's the American way, thank God," she wrote. Also advertised on her sites were DVDs, toys and children's books, but the best-selling item appeared to be Rogaine. Stores targeted were in Salem, Keizer, Albany, Lebanon and Sweet Home, investigators said. When law enforcement raided her Salem home with a search warrant Thursday, they seized several computers. One was on at the time, and investigators said they discovered a recent Google search on it: "Find my nearest Safeway.'' Armstrong was previously convicted of first-degree theft in Marion County in November 2012. Can you imagine the gifts under her Christmas tree. What a "Lone Granny Gang." (Source
