Tallahassee, FL: Massive Shoplifting Ring busted, targeted nearly 100 Grocery Stores  A massive shoplifting ring targeting North and Central Florida grocery stores has been busted. Attorney General Pam Bondi and Marion County Sheriff Chris Blair announced the arrests of five suspects Thursday. According to arrest warrants, the suspects stole more than $50,000 worth of beauty, dental care, medical and other products from Publix and Winn-Dixie stores and then sold the items on eBay. "This unsophisticated, yet massive effort to sell stolen goods online has produced strong evidence for my statewide prosecutors to bring charges against these individuals in connection with shoplifting products from nearly 100 Florida grocery stores," said Bondi. Each time, between $100 to $1,400 worth of products was allegedly stolen including whitening dental strips, electronic toothbrushes, shaving razors, allergy medicines, batteries and more. Most of the shoplifting occurred in June and July of this year. After identifying the suspects, undercover detectives were able to track eBay user identification information to determine that items being sold through the suspects' eBay accounts matched the items stolen from the grocery stores.

Kalamazoo Co Undersheriff Paul Matyas says the crimes have been occurring since 2012. The thieves focus on Interstate 94, also hitting restaurants in Indiana and Illinois. Deputies say the thieves are targeting people who put their purses on the back of their chairs, and when you're not paying attention, that's when they reach in and make off with your wallet. "Right after they get that, they go to the nearest big box store and they use the credit card as quickly as they can and then they just take the purse and pitch it out the window," said Matyas.
