He had no clue that grin and the grip he had on those medicine bottles were all caught on camera in one of the Mid-South's most sophisticated retail crime-fighting networks: the Kroger/Shelby County Sheriff's ALERT crime-fighting network. Kroger's cameras captured Harris taking between $700 and $1,000 of medicine over three visits. According to Kendall Neal of the Regional Organized Crime Information Center (ROCIC) in Nashville, between the two-year periods 2008-10 and 2011-13, retail theft cases increased 2.3 percent statewide in Tennessee. But between those same periods, in areas of Tennessee with crime-fighting partnerships like the Kroger/Shelby County Sheriff ALERT team, retail theft dropped an average of nearly eight percent.
