Officers from the Troy Police Department teamed up with the Michigan State Police Fraud Investigation Section to stop shoplifters on January 28th and 29th, 2020. The two day “blitz” resulted in 27 different charges related to retail crime.

The agencies partnered for the operation, recognizing that retail fraud suspects are often part of larger, organized crime rings that impact multiple jurisdictions. Loss prevention professionals from 13 different stores were also part of the effort.

Among multiple others, a 30 year old man from Detroit and a 30 year old woman from Detroit were arrested and charged with multiple counts of Retail Fraud 2nd degree. The suspects were observed stealing at Victoria’s Secret, Dick’s Sporting Goods, JCPenney and Bath and Body Works at Oakland Mall.

The suspects were arrested with $736.20 worth of stolen merchandise in their possession and were accompanied by the woman’s 7-year-old child. Child Protective Services was contacted in regards to the child. The case remains under investigation… MI Headlines
