Antonio ORC ring - Two now face charges |
A suspect identified as 45-year-old Juan Ybarra has become the second person to
face charges in what San Antonio police now are calling an organized theft ring.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, it involved people stealing
merchandise from a local sporting goods business and selling it on the internet.
The affidavit stated that Ybarra and another suspect were questioned after the
arrest of a third person last week, and admitted to working with him to steal
and re-sell the goods. Police said Ybarra would enlist the help of the second
suspect to act as a lookout while he carried merchandise out of Team Express,
the affidavit stated. On Jan. 28, a third person -- Rule Castillo-Chavez, 21 --
was arrested on a theft charge for allegedly taking merchandise from the same
business and selling it on an eBay account that was registered in his name.
Ybarra, meanwhile, faces a charge of organized retail theft. Although the
affidavit does not mention their relationship to the business, it appears all
three suspects either worked there or had intimate knowledge of its operation.

ORC ring hitting Kroger stores - carts loaded with beef jerky, candy, and
laundry detergent in Marion, OH Three central Ohio police agencies
have a beef with whoever's been stealing thousands of dollars worth of jerky
from local grocery stores. Hitting Kroger stores for $1,300 worth of beef jerky,
candy, and laundry detergent one man has been arrested. Holton also noted that
crimes involving detergent pods, candy and beef jerky are fairly common in the
area. The items are frequently resold at a "mom and pop" convenience store or
gas station, he said, particularly due to beef jerky's high markup. Two other
cases similar to the Worthington incident occurred at Kroger stores in Orange
Township and Dublin six days later. When he followed the man, he saw three other
people putting the items into a car. The loss-prevention officer grabbed the
cart and requested that one of the men follow him back into the store, but all
four men entered the vehicle and drove away. The next day, Delaware County
Sheriff's deputies responded to a call about a similar incident about 10:30 p.m.
In their report, officers noted that Kroger staff members said they had heard
about the Dublin incident the night before. This time, three male suspects left
the store at 6417 Columbus Pike with $920 worth of beef jerky, $989 worth of
laundry detergent and $366 worth of candy -- in total, $2,275 worth of
merchandise. Sheriff's reports list three potential known suspects in the case
from Marion and Lewis Center.
