Bras Stolen from Scranton, PA Victoria's Secret
Scranton police are investigating a theft from a Victoria's Secret store in the city. They say it's similar to other thefts at Victoria's Secret outside Wilkes-Barre but so far, no one has been caught. Scranton police were called to the Victoria's Secret store inside The Mall at Steamtown Monday morning. Managers told them that sometime last week, a robber made off with 20 bras. Police are hoping to catch the robbers, but they may be limited in what they can do after that. That theft of 20 bras doesn't seem as unusual as it may have been several months ago.


Twin Cities ORCA to hold first annual conference
in Minneapolis on Aug. 3-4, 2015

In October 2014, a group of dedicated law enforcement, crime analysts, corporate fraud and loss prevention investigators, and prosecutors created the Twin Cities Organized Retail Crime Association (TCORCA), 501c4 nonprofit corporation, as a private/public partnership to fight Organized Retail Criminal Enterprises negatively affecting our businesses and communities in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, greater Minnesota, and the upper Midwest region. The creation of this Minnesota-based ORCA with ties to the 30+ other ORCAs in the U.S. will facilitate the ability to formalize information sharing and bring these types of criminal cases to prosecution in a more efficient, effective, and timely manner.

TCORCA will hold its first annual Twin Cities Organized Retail Crime Association Training and Conference at the Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West in Plymouth, Minnesota on August 3-4, 2015. The conference includes advanced training on numerous topics from subject matter experts across the country. Speakers include representation from federal, state, and local law enforcement officials, as well as dynamic leaders across the retail and financial services spectrum.
