Rings: Inside Organized Retail Crime Raids
We used to call it shoplifting, but these days the foot
soldiers of retail crime rings are known as boosters.
Police even have an acronym for these operations: ORC,
which stands for Organized Retail Crime. Police say big
retail stores, from Walgreens to J.C. Penny, are getting

milk. According to the National Retail Federation, theft
can amount to annual losses as high as a $37 billion for
retail businesses. A MUST WATCH VIDEO
