Michigan State Police needs help identifying ORC ring in Bay and Saginaw counties  Michigan State Police is asking for the public's help in identifying between four and six suspects accused of fraud. "Tens of thousands of dollars." That's how much money Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser said a ring of thieves scammed from local stores. "They're buying Visa gift cards and loading the cards to the maximum amount and they're doing so in a fraudulent manner," Lt. Kaiser said. While Lt. Kaiser said he cannot tell TV5 exactly how the thieves are defrauding stores until a security mechanism is put in place statewide, he did tell us the scam artists are targeting larger retail stores in Bay County and the Saginaw area. As for the suspects, MSP is on the hunt for three or four females and one or two male accomplices. MSP said the theft ring is using two getaway vehicles when committing the frauds. Lt. Kaiser hopes Mid-Michigan will lead MSP to the suspects and, therefore, put an end to the scam.
