Roseville, CA Police and NCORCA fight organized crime and promote safe shopping environments  Hundreds of retail loss-prevention experts and law enforcement representatives from throughout northern California are meeting in Roseville today to discuss fraud, shoplifting, and other organized retail crimes that drive up costs for businesses and customers alike. In 2011, the Roseville Police Department helped start the Northern California Organized Retail Crime Association (NCORCA). The organization has grown to 270 members, including retail loss-prevention professionals and law enforcement agencies from the Sacramento Valley to the Oregon border. The members share information regularly about organized shoplifting crews, robbery series, and frequent or emerging fraud schemes. Roseville Police volunteer Al Moody has been the coordinator for the association since its inception. NCORCA's annual symposium meets from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Wednesday, September 24, at the Maidu Community Center, 1550 Maidu Drive in Roseville. Featured speakers include Roseville Police Chief Daniel Hahn; Placer County District Attorney Scott Owen; Robert Hill of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration; Special Agent Anitra Chiles of the USDA, who will talk about food stamp fraud; Wes Drone of the FBI on cybercrimes; and Greg Brumley and Paul LeBlanc of OuterWall and CoinStar.

Feds bust fraud ring responsible for theft of U.S. Treasury checks in Atlanta
A federal grand jury has indicted 19 people accused in a scheme to steal and cash U.S. Treasury checks and to use fraudulently obtained credit cards. The U.S. attorney's office in Atlanta says between June 2012 and September 2014 the defendants worked together to steal the checks from various sources, including the U.S. mail. According to a 62-count federal indictment, the suspects stole the checks from agencies such as the U.S. Postal Service, IRS and Social Security Administration, and then cashed them. Investigators said the checks were issued to people entitled to refunds, social security, disability payments and pension benefits. The checks ranged from several hundred dollars to more than $110,000. The indictment says the conspirators created fake IDs to cash the checks at banks, as well as stores such as Walmart, Kroger and Publix. It also said the suspects fraudulently obtained credit cards and used them to buy thousands of dollars of merchandise. (Source
