ORC female thief of designer purses in five cities busted in Rochester, N.Y.  The Rochester woman charged in a Milford designer purse theft and under investigation for several others in Oakland County has been identified as a suspect in a Washtenaw County case dating back almost two years. Laura Anne Pochmara, 37, who is charged with receiving and concealing stolen property over $1,000 and organized retail crime — as well as first-degree retail fraud — tied to a recent theft of around $2,200 in Vera Bradley purses from the Nana’s Niche and Corner store in Milford, could soon face charges as detectives have tied her to a 2012 shoplifting case at a Saline boutique called Pineapple House. More than $400 worth of items including five umbrellas, four handbags and a cosmetic case were stolen from Pineapple House, according to the police report. All stolen items were under the Vera Bradley brand. Milford investigators are working with police in South Lyon, Davison, Dexter, Saline and as far west as Kalamazoo on other incidents involving thefts of designer handbags, wallets and purses in those locations. Organized retail fraud, a five-year felony, has to do with operating a business with the purpose of stealing items and reselling them. Police reports indicated that Pochmara kept a journal with notes on the merchandise she had. She may have sold the stolen items on and eBay, would return some to retail locations for cash or store credit and would even sell them at discounted prices to acquaintances. In South Lyon, a similar incident was reported Jan. 31 at the Grand Trunke Home shop. Nine hipster purses and four wallets were stolen from the boutique on Pontiac Trail. Police are also investigating a Hallmark in Davison that was hit around the time of the previous thefts. (Source
