As for the customers who presented the worthless coupons, the investigation is ongoing. Police said they believe there were many people involved and they haven't been able to identify everyone.

He's charged with organized retail theft for allegedly stealing and re-selling more than $13,000 worth of items from stores including Target. Police said Duarte's ring of thieves made off with handbags from DSW Shoe Warehouse and bridesmaid's and party dresses from David's Bridal. (Source

One of Scotland's ORC professionals brags about how Christmas orders kept her busy and how she can remove all types of security tags and get around most security. 'It is getting harder to maintain standards and keep regular customers happy but I can normally get round the system. The knack is to go very early in the morning before all the security guards are on duty and when the sales staff are still setting up. They just don't notice what is going on. On a good day I can get away with around pounds 300 ($465) worth of stuff.' and she goes three times a week. (Source
