Cleveland ORC Ring identified
A retail theft ring operating out of Cleveland is believed to be responsible for stealing more than $45,000 since January from Marshalls stores in Western Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio.  More than $22,000 has been taken from Marshalls stores in Cranberry, Monroeville, Robinson, Ross and near Aspinwall according to information in a criminal complaint filed by the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation's Western Pennsylvania Task Force.  The task force filed charges on Thursday against Santina Green, also known as Erica Ray, 37, of Bedford, Ohio, and Michael Gross, 37, of Cleveland, state police said.  Green and Gross will be arraigned before District Judge David Kovach in Cranberry.  A criminal complaint identifies 11 other people as members of the ring and state police said more arrests will be made.  All those identified are residents of the Cleveland area.  The complaint states that members of the group would place lower price tags on items, including rugs and styling irons, at one Marshalls store and make a purchase.  They would then replace the original, higher price tag and go to another Marshalls store and return the item for the original cost, the complaint states.  Green is believed responsible for obtaining 38 refunds for nearly $7,000, including $3,400 in Pennsylvania, the complaint states.  Gross is accused of receiving three refunds for nearly $500.
