Major Sting Takes Down Multi-Million Dollar Retail Theft Ring; 19 Charged - Fencing operations busted - More arrests likely in Kentucky & Indiana  Armed with search warrants, local, state and federal authorities raid businesses in Evansville, Henderson and Newburgh. After a lengthy eight-month investigation, a total of 19 people face charges in connection with a multi-million dollar retail theft ring that targeted more than a dozen businesses in the Tri-State area. The tangled web was led by Michael Rupert and Kyle Hudson who would have other people steal goods from local stores and then sell those goods on Ebay, prosecutors said. Some of the stolen items included high-end vacuum cleaners, televisions, power tools and designer purses. Fifteen more people face local felony charges. The eight month investigation culminated with raids at the Newburgh and Henderson locations of 'Dealmakers.' Authorities also served a search warrant at Kyle's Cell Phone Accessories and iPhone Repair on Washington Avenue near Weinbach. According to the federal indictment, Hudson conducted some deals at the former Super Flea Market on South Kentucky. Hudson's family used to own the property, according to court records. It remains unclear whether any of the stolen goods were sold to flea market patrons when the business was still in operation. The investigation began when Evansville Police officers began looking into a series of thefts of high-end merchandise from local stores, including several stores at Eastland Mall. Officials say the crime ring is gang-related and several people will face gang-enhancement charges. (Source (Source

Russian Gang Amasses Over a Billion Internet Passwords
A Russian crime ring has amassed the largest known collection of stolen Internet credentials, including 1.2 billion user name and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses, security researchers say. The records, discovered by Hold Security, a firm in Milwaukee, include confidential material gathered from 420,000 websites, including household names, and small Internet sites. Hold Security has a history of uncovering significant hacks, including the theft last year of tens of millions of records from Adobe Systems. Hold Security would not name the victims, citing nondisclosure agreements and a reluctance to name companies whose sites remained vulnerable. At the request of The New York Times, a security expert not affiliated with Hold Security analyzed the database of stolen credentials and confirmed it was authentic. Another computer crime expert who had reviewed the data, but was not allowed to discuss it publicly, said some big companies were aware that their records were among the stolen information. (Source
