Brothers accused of burglaries across NJ, Pennsauken break-in nets $203K
Two Pennsylvania brothers are accused of staging sophisticated burglaries at businesses across New Jersey, including a Pennsauken break-in that netted $203,000. Jose Medina, 38, of Lancaster and Eliezer Medina, 36, of Ronks allegedly traveled from Lancaster County to burglarize at least three stores in New Jersey between November 2013 and August 2014, federal authorities said Friday. Investigators alleged the brothers or accomplices would typically visit stores in advance of burglaries, taping over security cameras and putting magnets on door sensors to disable alarms. They said the burglars, wearing masks, gloves and hooded clothing, would strike after the business had closed. The intruders would cut emergency exit doors to enter the store, then used pry bars and drilling tools to crack the safe. After spending several hours in each store, the brothers would drive to Pennsylvania or New York, according to a criminal complaint.

The suspect, Guy Washington, picked out a $151.42 Graco baby car seat from the Walmart at Interstate 35 and Slaughter Lane and returned it for a store gift card, the warrant said.

Scotland Yard wages war on 200 cyber crime gangs in London
Scotland Yard is battling more than 200 organized crime groups engaged in cyber fraud in London, police revealed today. A new Met cyber taskforce is investigating plots ranging from online dating fraud to mortgage scams involving million pound properties. Police say they are facing an overwhelming caseload of around 54,000 reports of cyber fraud in the capital each year - but admit the crime is still hugely under-reported. Detective Chief Superintendent Jayne Snelgrove, the head of the Met's new cyber crime and fraud unit codenamed Falcon, said officers were in the early stages of around 18 investigations. These ranged from online retail and auction site frauds to courier scams and investment frauds. So far, the squad - which was launched in October - has made more than 100 arrests and detectives were targeting a number of organized crime groups engaged in cyber fraud. Police believe more than 200 gangs from around the world are targeting London using the Internet, though the figure changes constantly. DCS Snelgrove says many gangs are operating in different countries and a number of Falcon's inquiries span the United States, parts of Europe and Russia.
