Facebook page leads police to phone theft ring in San Juan, TX; tied to 2 Cricket store burglaries  Four men were formally charged Saturday with stealing dozens of cell phones and selling them via Facebook, police said. San Juan police last week arrested members of the cell phone burglary ring in two separate stings, police said Saturday. Officers alongside the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Adrian Segovia, 18; Guiovanni Ibarra, 18; Julio Lara, 19; and Luis Lara, 23, on multiple counts of burglary and engaging in organized criminal activity, San Juan Police Chief Juan Gonzalez said. Gonzalez said the four men were arrested in two separate buyback stings in which undercover officers purchased stolen cell phones. Investigators learned of the group after receiving information about a Facebook page called "La pulga online" that was used to sell stolen cell phones. Police said the men stole the cell phones in two separate burglaries, the first on Oct. 3 at the Cricket Wireless Store, 1618 N. "I" Road, and Tuesday at Cricket Wireless Store, 1201 N. Raul Longoria Road, both in San Juan. Gonzalez said in total, the men made off with 65 cell phones and $500 cash.

Columbia, MO Police working with ORC Investigator preparing for Black Friday
With the Christmas season just around the corner, police in Maury County are preparing for one of the most common holiday crimes: shoplifting. So far in 2014, shoplifting incidents in Columbia have been reduced by 20 percent compared to last year, Columbia police Lt. Joey Gideon said Friday. But, he said, shoplifting does tend to occur more often during the holiday season than during any other time of the year." After Black Friday, the stores start getting more crowded, and it's easier for shoplifters to go unnoticed," Gideon said. But shoplifting is not just a problem during holidays, Gideon said. He said Columbia sees hundreds of shoplifting incidents each year, but police are doing more to combat it than they did in the past." We did an analysis of this a couple of years ago," Gideon said. "We've started monitoring these shoplifting cases better. We've been able to develop suspects and make arrests on shoplifting that stores didn't catch at the time because we're reviewing video. Although at the lower spectrum of the seriousness of crime, it's a serious problem when you have so many (incidents)."
