San Antonio, TX: Three arrested in $50,000 Organized Retail Theft ring
More than $50,000 worth of stolen merchandise was recovered Tuesday after police arrested three people accused of leading that property crime ring. Sgt. Daniel Anders with the San Antonio Police Department said the fencing interdiction team had been following the crew in action for a few months and Tuesday afternoon, the team arrested three people for organized retail crime. The suspects are two women, one 50 years old and one 20 years old, and a 46-year-old man.
