More on the ORC activity in Pittsburgh - getting hit by multiple ORC gangs A group of middle-aged men ripping off stores up and down the East Coast, including here in Pittsburgh. And another group hit the Ross Park Mall Louis Vuitton store late last week. Five of them grabbed a bunch of very expensive purses and took off. Police believe they did the same thing in Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland. Another group hit the Best Buy store on McKnight Road a few months ago. Officials say they grabbed GPS devices and high-end calculators. They are working stores around the country, too. The transient aspect of the organized thieves makes them tough to catch. It’s also tough to work with the vendors. In the case at Louis Vuitton, they did not want to release the entire video of the thieves, fearing it would create copycats. In the case at Best Buy, they waited two months to release the video. Police believe in all likelihood the suspects, who know what they are doing, are long gone. (Source

More on London's West-end $1.6M high-speed motorcycle smash-and-grab ORC gang. This young crew would steal high-speed motorcycles and race through London, smashing and grabbing high-end merchandise from exclusive retailers. A teenage couple actually trained their friends and wore specific outfits which helped police finally apprehend them. After the thefts, they'd lead police on high-speed chases in London. They got away with over $1.6 million during their spree. Conducting over 50 robberies last year, they mostly stole handbags and computer equipment. The gang would arrive on the scene on up to four stolen motorbikes with two people on each, often using the bikes to smash stores’ windows. They armed themselves with sledgehammers and crowbars for some raids, while other times they claimed to be carrying knives and one passer-by was warned off with a handgun. However, after hitting a high-end designer connected to the Royal family, police launched an undercover operation that paid off. The ironic thing is that when they finally raided the home of the ringleader, they found his girlfriend had made him a cake decorated with a motorcycle bandit and purses. The ring leader was found guilty yesterday of two counts of robbery and cleared of three. Some of the crew pleaded guilty. Along with the exclusive retailers, they hit an Apple store as well and here's some pictures and a great video of that heist. (Source
