Police say organized retail theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the country. Target 11 in Pittsburgh is investigating retail theft rings, after busting a ring of thieves in Center Township who were stealing DVDs and reselling them. Under a new state law, this type of crime is being recognized as more than just shoplifting and it's under this law that the ringleader from Center Township is being prosecuted. ORC is a $12 billion a year problem. Thieves are stealing some of the most popular brands on the market, Tide, Tylenol, even Crest White Strips. A new report found that 96% of stores nationwide say they've been a victim of organized retail theft. (source
