California Highway Patrol Officer Honored, arrest lead to Victoria's Secret ORC International theft ring
California Highway Patrol officer Gregory Barker is credited with making one of the biggest "busts" ever out of the agency's Stockton office. The officer - in his sixth year of service - pulled over an unlicensed male driver who had had a female companion with him. He noticed a number of metal lined purses in the back seat. After running a warrant check, he found out they were suspects in a string of shoplifting incidents at Victoria Secret stores. A check of the trunk revealed $10,000 worth of stolen Victoria Secret bras. Walker followed up with Victoria Secret loss prevention officers. The end result: The man he arrested was operating a "fake" Victoria Secrets store in Honduras and was stealing bras from California stores to stock his shelves. That's why his fellow officers rib him for making a "big bust."
