Mother & daughter ORC Duo to stand trial who stole over $120,000 in Green Bay  Gutierrez Carranza faces two retail theft counts, while Morales Bolanos faces two retail theft counts plus a receiving stolen property charge. According to police and the criminal complaint, the pair stole from multiple stores during a period of several years but only were arrested after a Cabela's employee noticed the two women walked into the fitting room with two jackets and walked out with only one. The criminal complaint says the stolen Cabela's merchandise totaled almost $3,000. The complaint also shows the two women allegedly stole clothing from multiple stores in the Fox River Mall in Grand Chute and Bay Park Square in Ashwaubenon. The largest amount totaled more than $25,000 from Abercrombie & Fitch in the Fox River Mall. Police say majority of the items that were stolen have been returned to the stores. A third suspect, Armando Martinez-Osorio, returns to court March 13 on a receiving stolen property count.

Retailer's Alert: Police hunt for ORC male suspect hitting Walmart store multiple times in Marble Falls, TX  "He is targeting electronics, car stereos and computers. It's not a terribly sophisticated method. He goes into the store and goes directly to the product he's after," Marble Falls Police Sgt. Tom Dillard said. "He removes the security devices, conceals the device in another stolen item - a bag of some kind - and heads out the door." The loss prevention department of the store compiled surveillance video, which apparently identified the suspect, on Jan. 26, 29, Feb. 6 and Feb. 22. He appears to be a white male, in his 20s or 30s, average height, trim build, short brown hair with heavy eyebrows. Contact the Marble Falls Police Department with tips about the crime. Call the Hill Country Crime Stoppers at 1-866-756-TIPS to leave an anonymous tip and be eligible for a $2,000 reward.

Cincinnati Police arrest man connected to Stolen LensCrafters' merchandise  Cincinnati Police Department's Intelligence Unit has a Metropolitan Sewer District engineer under investigation Monday tonight after walking him out of MSD's headquarters on Feb. 12. The employee, Greg Doherty, has not been charged with a crime, but police continue investigating thousands of eBay sales connected to the city employee. A search warrant obtained by FOX19 shows investigators asked a county judge for a search warrant on Feb. 11 after agents tried to buy a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses from an eBay account registered to Doherty on Feb. 6. CPD agents created an eBay account and email address in order to purchase the glasses, the warrant states. Agents paid $117.50 and won the glasses at auction, according to the warrant. On Feb. 10, agents said Doherty canceled the sale. On the same day, agents said Doherty removed all other glasses from his site. The agent who swore the warrant out wrote, "It is believed the suspect removed the remaining glasses of [sic] his website to avoid detection by law enforcement." A FOX19 review of Doherty's eBay account shows 2,120 separate feedback comments in a little more than a year. It took 11 days for FOX19 to obtain the search warrant in the Doherty case. In it, agents accuse the MSD engineer of selling name brand sunglasses on his eBay site. Some of the glasses, according to the warrant, were "missing items" from the LensCrafters store in Western Hills.

St. Charles, IL smoke shop robbers attempted to sell $4,000 of pipes on Facebook  Armed with a knife and a handgun, two men robbed a St. Charles shop owner of two water pipes worth $4,000 and attempted to sell them on Facebook, police said. A recently released search warrant provides details of the crime, which occurred Jan. 4 inside a smoke shop in the 1500 block of East Main Street. Weeks later, two men from St. Charles were charged with committing the robbery after a Facebook message helped seal the case against them, police said.

Three Men Charged in Walmart Theft Conspiracy in Warren Co, VA  According to investigators with the Warren County Sheriff's Office, if it hadn't been for suspicious employees at a Walmart in Front Royal, three men might have gotten away with thousands of dollars of stolen merchandise. One man was identified as Christopher Miller. The store called police after Miller allegedly loaded a cart up with more than $3,000 in items. Deputies stopped him before he made it out of the store. "At the same time there was a vehicle that had been circling that was leaving the area. Two other deputies stopped the vehicle and spoke with them," added Sgt. Henry. Police said both were working with Miller. All three men were charged with conspiracy to commit grand larceny, but their charges don't end there. "When they stopped the vehicle they observed what appeared to be brand new merchandise in the back of the vehicle in the back of a truck," said Sgt. Henry. Thanks to the Walmart employees, not only was a robbery prevented, but another Walmart robbery was solved. Deputies said they recovered thousands of dollars worth of merchandise stolen from a Walmart in Dayton, Virginia, out of the back of the getaway truck.
