ORC nic "myotherjob" eBay seller gets 1 year and one day in federal prison The professional shoplifter and "prolific booster" who hit Safeway over 105 times throughout Oregon and Safeway last year goes to federal prison. Just between January 2011 and July 2011, he pocketed $43,200, which represented a retail loss of at least $73,700, according to a court document. He's accused of pocketing merchandise from stores up and down the I-5 corridor, from Kelso and Longview, Wash., to Corvallis and Springfield, and averaged $10,000 a month in online sales of the stolen goods. The sentencing is the culmination of a seven-month joint investigation by the FBI, retail investigators for Safeway and Target, and Woodburn police. The federal case reveals the extensive problem retailers have combating large-scale theft, with professional thieves moving from state to state and striking multiple retailers. The annual loss to retailers nationwide is estimated at $30 billion. U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman ordered Weismiller to turn himself into authorities by April 26. He'll face three years of supervised release after completing his prison sentence, and must pay $20,961.97 in restitution. (Source

ORC? - Two Maryland men were arrested Saturday after fleeing a Kohl’s store in Exton carrying two Dyson vacuum cleaners valued at $1,200. Police are wondering if they've hit any of your stores? Steven Lee Cuniff, 40, of Perryville, Md., and James Joseph Quinn IV, 24, of Port Deposit, Md., were arrested by West Whiteland, PA., police. Further investigation revealed the suspects may be responsible for a similar theft in West Whiteland earlier this month as well as a theft from a Kohl’s store in Newark, Del. The men have extensive criminal records, and each admitted to stealing merchandise to support a heroin habit, according to police. Investigators say they will be checking with other law enforcement agencies throughout the region to determine whether Cuniff and Quinn may be responsible for thefts elsewhere. (Source
