$5 million theft ring in Washington D.C. area shut down: 7 members of 'Simple City Criminal Organization'  Federal and local law enforcement officials announced Thursday that they shut down a theft ring that netted $5 million through a series of carjackings, robberies and other crimes allegedly committed around the region since 2009. Seven members of the Simple City Criminal Organization were arrested Thursday after 140 federal and local law enforcement officers executed 11 search warrants in the alleged racketeering conspiracy. The group specialized in "hop-ins" - thefts that occur when someone leaves their keys in the car as it warms up or at a gas station, prosecutors allege. After stealing a car, members of the ring would use it to commit robberies or other crimes, authorities said. They would sell the cellphones, tablets and computers found in vehicles for a profit and use any credit cards, checkbooks or debit cards found to commit fraud, federal investigators charged.
