ORC 'grab and run' thieves and fence in Houston get busted after two week run. Over a series of what Houston police called "grab and runs," Perry Jamah White, 32, and Diamond Matthew Nelson, 22, allegedly managed to steal 337 pairs of pants, 117 shirts and 14 pairs of shorts from various retail stores around the city in recent weeks. The merchandise was swiped from more than 20 stores and totaled more than $20,000. On Monday White and Nelson were charged with engaging in organized criminal activity, according to court records. Police also charged 35-year-old store owner Morris Jones Jr. with the same felony crime, accusing him of being the "fence" that bought and sold the stolen clothes. Police learned of the crimes after they were contacted by a manager for Stage Stores, a company that owns retail businesses such as Palais Royal. The manager showed officers surveillance videos of some of the "grab and runs" and provided them with the license plate of the getaway vehicle used in the crimes, court records state. With this evidence officers located White. He admitted to his role in the theft operation and led police to Nelson, who also allegedly admitted his involvement in the crimes. Court records state White also told police that the pair would sell the stolen goods to a man named "Big Boy," later identified as Jones, who ran a store called Fresh White Tees in west Houston. After executing a search warrant, police found clothes that matched the description provided by the manager and recovered about $30,000 worth of stolen merchandise at the store - most of which appeared to be provided by Nelson and White. None of the men have yet been arrested, according to court records. (Source

Second in Command of nation wide ID theft ring pleads guilty and tells all. For $5,000 to $7,000 customers got a legitimate Social Security card in someone else's name, escorted to various states to get out-of-state driver's licenses, open new bank accounts, and "build-up teams" would boost the credit scores associated with the identities allowing the customers to get credit cards and commit fraud. With 53 suspects arrested last year as a result of a multi-agency investigation triggered by a 2008 triple-murder, half of them have already plead guilty.
