Defense questions witness credibility in $500,000 Theft Ring case in Las Vegas  Defense lawyers launched an opening-day offensive on Tuesday against the government’s chief witness in the federal trial of three Cuban immigrants charged with stealing drugs and high-quality merchandise from delivery vans and warehouses around the Las Vegas Valley. The witness, Yordani Corona Del Toro struck a deal with federal prosecutors in the case to escape a sentence of life in prison in Nevada as a habitual criminal. Assistant U.S. Attorney Christina Brown told the jury that Del Toro spent six months working undercover with FBI agents and Las Vegas police to break up the theft ring in 2013. During that time, the informant secretly recorded conversations with the defendants and helped them plan the robbery and kidnapping of a delivery van driver under the watchful eyes of FBI agents, Brown said. Members of the theft ring are alleged to have conducted surveillance at retailers around the valley to determine delivery patterns. Once a delivery truck was identified, members followed the truck to a warehouse where the merchandise was stored. Torches were used to cut holes in metal garage-style doors to enter the warehouses and steal the goods, which were loaded into waiting vehicles, authorities alleged FBI agents assigned to an organized crime squad linked the ring to the Oct. 15, 2012, warehouse theft of $573,756 in exclusive Coach merchandise, including purses, in southeast Las Vegas.

Walmart Loss prevention employees prevent $1,000-plus theft in Lancaster County, PA  A man and a woman were behind bars this week after a Loss Prevention agent caught them trying to make off with over $1,000 in goods. Both 26-year-old Columbia resident Amanda L. Clawson and 35-year-old Michael S. Eisenhart, of Lancaster, were charged with felony retail theft Monday after East Lampeter Township police were called to the store. Loss prevention first noticed Eisenhart wheeling a shopping cart full of outdoor camping and fishing equipment up to the front doors of the store on video surveillance at about 4:21 p.m. Eisenhart then left the cart, but, a short time later, Clawson walked and pushed the cart outside and up to a vehicle where Eisenhart was waiting for her. When police arrived a short time later to take the two into custody, officers learned that both Eisenhart and Clawson were wanted on bench warrants for separate previous offenses. (Source
