Branko Bogdanov the $7 million shoplifting suspects to remain jailed
Federal judge in Chicago says the head of a suburban family accused of shoplifting $7 million in goods must remain behind bars after deeming him a flight risk. The ruling came Monday at a detention hearing for a father, mother and daughter accused of going on regular excursions nationwide to steal. Prosecutor Renato Mariotti says Branko Bogdanov claims he's $28,000 in debt. But Mariotti says Bogdanov actually owns a $1.3 million Northbrook home and 12 vehicles, including a 2003 Chevy Corvette. Mariotti also told the court the 58-year-old emigrated in 1973 from the former Yugoslavia and is in the U.S. illegally. The judge didn't immediately rule on the detention of the mother and daughter. All three are charged with interstate transportation of stolen property. They haven't entered pleas. (Source
