Warehouse thefts quickly turn in to ORC arrests Fountain, Colorado – In October 2011, the Loss Prevention Department’s ORC team at King Soopers, a Denver based grocery division operated by The Kroger Co., initiated an ORC investigation at their Fountain, Colorado, warehouse. The warehouse and product is owned by King Soopers, but is operated by a 3rd party logistic company. The ORC team became aware of over $200,000 in losses at the company’s warehouse. Partnering with Fountain Police Department and Pueblo Police Department Narcotics Unit, nine (9) search warrants were executed. The investigation revealed 2 warehouse employees, and others, devised a scheme to steal high valued ORC products from the warehouse and sell over $200,000 of these products online. It was discovered the group established an eBay account to fence these products. EBay’s PROACT team was instrumental in working with law enforcement and ORC investigators and provided a detailed report of the group’s online activity. To date, 3 individuals, Robert Manzanares, Nicholas Rodriguez and Joseph Martinez, have been arrested for the theft which so far is valued in excess of $500,000. The investigation continues and additional arrests are expected. (source  Contributor Denny Dansak, Corporate Manager, Organized Retail Crime, The Kroger Co.

"We believe they are stealing to order,'' said Hastings Senior Sergeant Stuart Fleming. They are a particular echelon, groups of male and female offenders, who are using this highly organized approach to it. "Groups between three and five or six, with vehicles, target the items they are interested in and are able to dispose of pretty readily." This type of shoplifting is on the increase and people targeting shops like this is getting more prolific. (Source
