The RAP team, Metro’s first planned effort to combat organized retail theft, has arrested 11 people and recovered nearly $12,000 of stolen merchandise since its debut shortly before Thanksgiving. The undercover operation formed after Las Vegas retailers told police organized theft was becoming a bigger problem — a point the National Retail Federation solidified with its 2011 Organized Retail Crime Survey.

One of the men had accidentally hit 911 on his cell and the police listener recorded the play by play and even had the police meet them at the store they were going to sell their loot. Both men were dumbfounded by how police knew exactly where they would be, not knowing one of them had pocket dialed 911 on his cellphone when they got into the SUV after the theft. When the pair pulled into a parking lot near the Video X-Change, they noticed a couple of squad cars. The next thing they knew, several officers, a couple with guns drawn, were yelling, "Police!
