Lake, FL: Bed, Bath & Beyond manager accused of stealing $11,000 of merchandise,
reselling it on eBay
The investigation was initiated when Bed, Bath & Beyond's cyber security and
investigative unit noticed eBay sales that were suspicious in that items were
being sold from its product line. The eBay account from which the items were
being sold was linked to the manager of the store at Village Crossroads shopping
center, 33-year-old Jamie Lynn Deske of Lady Lake. A subsequent undercover
purchase showed that the merchandise associated with Deske's eBay account
matched the serial number of a product from the local Bed, Bath & Beyond store.
On Feb. 3, a corporate representative of Bed, Bath & Beyond confronted Deske at
work and she admitted taking more than $11,000 in merchandise from the store
between January 2014 and January 2016.

York City: Teams of thieves that target high-end ice cream, threatens City's
Thieves lifted hundreds of cartons of Häagen-Dazs worth more than $1,000 from
two Duane Reade stores within minutes of each other on Saturday, police said,
pointing to the possibility of some kind of organized dairy theft ring. Two
suspects snagged 66 containers of Häagen-Dazs valued at $375.54 from a
refrigerated display case at a midtown Duane Reade and walked out of one store
at 10:45 a.m. Just a few minutes later, at about 10:51 a.m., two suspects stole
224 containers of the same brand valued at $712.32 from another Duane Reade in
the same area, police said. It's unclear whether it was the same two suspects in
both stores, but there were other Duane Reade thefts involving Häagen-Dazs last
fall. Police did arrest a suspect this week who had been allegedly working with
a crew of younger men to steal ice cream as well.
