ORC Ring-leader gets 5 years in prison and ordered to pay $170,000 in restitution. 42 year-old Renton, WA., man who led an ORC ring of as many as 22 people hitting home improvement stores - Lowe's, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart was sentenced to 5 yr.'s in prison for shoplifting and forged documents to steal "significant" sums from the retailers. For example, members of the ring would steal items, such as expensive faucets, from Lowe’s stores by placing them in large boxes for sinks or toilets. The conspirators would leave the store paying only the lower price for the sink or toilet. In the ensuing weeks, members of the conspiracy would return the stolen items to different Lowe’s stores throughout Arizona, Oregon, California, Oklahoma and Washington in exchange for gift cards. Members of the conspiracy then sold the gift cards for cash. The ring caused more than $100,000 in losses to Lowe's. In order to return Lowe’s items without a receipt, the conspirators used altered drivers licenses – changing one letter in the name and license number – so that the stores fraud detection systems would not be triggered with the multiple returns.
