Four fencing operations busted for selling stolen property from Kroger in Delhi Township, Ohio  A six month investigation led Delhi Township police to arrest the suspects who each face one count of receiving stolen property.

ORC Duo may be part of East Coast Ring - Hits Hollister store at WestGate Mall in Spartanburg, SC, last week  The Spartanburg Police Department on Friday released video surveillance footage from the shoplifting incident to the public in an attempt to identify those responsible. In the surveillance footage from inside Hollister, two individuals are seen entering the store and placing stacks of shirts into bags before walking out. Stephanie Hunt, district manager for asset protection, said the two are likely part of an organized retail crime ring that operates throughout the East Coast. Hunt met with police officers after reporting the incident. She said those involved in the ring are difficult to identify and arrest since they do not stay in one jurisdiction. The same group is likely responsible for shoplifting from the store about two years ago, she said. "We haven't been able to identify whether this crew is selling at flea markets or if they are traveling, or hitting the entire coastline," Hunt said.
