ORC Group from Texas Arrested in Box-Stuffing Shoplifting Scheme in W.Va. - have they hit your stores?  Four people are facing charges, accused of shoplifting from Walmart in Spencer. Nichols says they would take a large item in a box, take the item out, then fill it with smaller items like DVDs and clothes. In Thursday's bust, the group tried to shoplift nearly $1,400 worth of merchandise. However, they believe it was only one stop along a much larger path. There were multiple receipts from multiple stores, multiple Walmarts," Nichols said.

Montreal man pleads guilty to 56 offenses of credit card fraud - crown seeking 5 yr. prison sentence - organized crime gang involved  Nour-El-Dean Mouneimnen has been in custody since his March 7 arrest in Gander for the offenses, which occurred in Port Aux Basques, Bishop’s Falls, Grand Falls-Windsor, Corner Brook, and Gander over several weeks in February and March. The charges to which he pled guilty included 19 counts of possession of stolen credit card information, 18 counts of using stolen credit card information, 13 counts of impersonation, one count of conspiracy to commit fraud, one count of using a stolen credit card, one count of possessing a credit card writer for unlawful purposes, one count of laundering, and two counts of fraud. According to information presented in court, Mouneimnen obtained stolen credit card information from real people, mostly living in the United States, uploaded that information to blank cards, and then used those cards to buy prepaid credit cards, gift cards, as well as merchandise from businesses across the province. Crown prosecutor Karen O'Reilly told the court Thursday that Mouneimnen spent thousands of dollars using false and prepaid credit cards in stores across the province including grocery stores, clothing stores, restaurants, and jewelry stories. While in most cases, the stores and cardholders targeted were protected, four major credit card companies are out over $7,000 due to crimes committed by Mouneimnen. There were also packages sent between the accused and other parties during their period of activity, which O'Reilly said could point to an involvement in an organized crime group. (Source
