ORC ring leader who hit 70 Home Depots in New Jersey & New York admits to over $100,000 in theft - more information on this case - The investigation determined that Suarez led a ring that committed thefts at multiple Home Depot stores per day, stealing hundreds of dollars in merchandise by "under-ringing" items through self-checkout areas, Chiesa said. Three additional members of the ring pleaded guilty earlier this month and face jail time, while one member of the group remains at large, he said. Targeting approximately 70 Home Depot stores primarily in New Jersey, but also in New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, the ring members allegedly stole items that were relatively expensive from the Home Depot stores by going through the self-checkout areas and not properly scanning the items, Chiesa said. Group members allegedly used various tactics to hide their "under-ringing" activity in the self-checkout area from security cameras and employees, including the use of a second ring member to distract store employees, he said. The ring members, who are from Central and South America, were based in Hudson County. (Source
