110 people involved in large retail theft ring that stole at least $750K, could be millions in merchandise, in West York, PA  Police announced Wednesday morning charges were filed against those involved after a roughly four-month investigation. Giuffrida headed a highly organized theft network active since 2009 whose activity started to branch out and grow in late 2011. "We believe it went up to a million (dollars) and that's just an estimate," he said. Ring members worked in crews of three to four people and targeted 92 businesses at more than 300 locations in five counties in Pennsylvania and two in Maryland, Kahley said. Each member of the crew had a particular role and targeted several stores in a week, making between $1,500 and $5,000 a day, according to Giuffrida's charging documents. One crew member would drive other members to a store where another member, dubbed a "booster," would steal an item. Another person, called a "refunder," would either return the item to the same store or have the driver go to another store where it was returned in exchange for gift cards, Kahley said. Of the 110 people who have been charged so far, about 90 percent are from York County. "We're anticipating filing charges against at least 18 more (people)," he said. (Source
