Fuel thieves using stolen credit cards busted in Naples, Fla.
Two men were arrested after being spotted going from gas station to gas station filling up large containers in the bed of their pick up trucks with diesel fuel. Police found out they were using stolen credit cards and the pair was arrested for transporting fuel illegally. The duo's arrest left Parker's team investigating something even bigger. "At the time, they were using several different credit cards to pay for the fuel. So, we're in the process, at this point, of seeing if those cards or those card numbers were issued to other people," Parker said. According to Parker, what happens a lot in Florida is criminals will buy diesel with stolen credit cards, then set up shop in a remote area. The criminals will sell the fuel for a fraction of the original cost. (Source

Suspect charged in series of violent heists at area Radio Shack stores in Detroit Fingerprints on duct tape helped federal agents nab a Radio Shack bandit who they charge was among a gang of robbers who went on a violent crime spree across metro Detroit, tying up employees and customers with cords at gunpoint, taping their eyes shut and stealing smartphones and bags of cash. Among the victims was a 14-year-old boy who was handcuffed to a metal chair. Today, two months after that ordeal, an indictment was handed down in U.S. District Court charging Walter Smith, 19, of Detroit, with robbing two Radio Shack stores in June — one in Royal Oak, the other in Royal Oak Township. The indictment was triggered by scraps of duct tape. (Source

Marshall’s Shoplifter hits Apopka, FL Police Officer with vehicle; arrested 40 times before  The Apopka Police Department says a Corporal was struck by a fleeing suspect’s vehicle Wednesday night. Officers say 29-year old Berinthia Ketierra Williams is charged with Attempted Homicide, Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding and Felony Retail Theft as well as other charges. Officials say around 7:00pm, Corporal Kenny Kaisera responded to theft call at the Marshall’s store on East Semoran Boulevard. Investigators say a Loss Prevention Officer recognized Williams as being part of a shoplifting ring and contacted law enforcement to respond when he observed her concealing merchandise. Officials say as Williams left the store the Loss Prevention Officer gave her description, the vehicle she was driving and her location in the parking lot to police dispatchers. Officers say Corporal Kaiser arrived first on scene and made contact with the suspect. Investigators say he gave her verbal commands to exit the vehicle but instead she lunged the car toward him several times, then accelerated away from Corporal Kaiser in reverse onto a curb and sidewalk. Officials say as Corporal Kaiser approached her vehicle she deliberately cut her wheels toward him and quickly accelerated forward, striking him with the front center of her car. Kaiser rolled onto the hood and struck the windshield. Williams continued to accelerate through the parking lot. Corporal Kaiser fell from the vehicle as the vehicle fled. (Source

Logan County, OH Grand jury indicts pair for 39 counts of ID theft
Two African nationals was each the subject of 40-count indictments handed up this week by a Logan County grand jury. Isaac Weah, 23, and Mamadou Abda Ba, 25, both previously of Columbus, have been charged with 39 counts of identity fraud, and a single count of illegal use of supplemental nutrition benefits, each fifth-degree felonies. One of the suspects entered the Russells Point Village Pantry and attempted to buy a carton of cigarettes, only to have the transaction fail five times with five different gift cards. The manager provided law enforcement with an accurate description of the vehicle and license plate number, which led to the traffic stop and arrests. Police and Ohio Highway Patrol stopped the duo. A search of the car turned up 40 prepaid cards in plain view and under the dashboard. An agent from the Columbus office of the U.S. Secret Service examined the cards, finding all but four had been re-encoded with stolen account information. (Source
