The Week in CE Retail Crime
A 34-year-old man was arrested at a Phoenix-area Circuit City earlier this week and charged with attempting to steal a laptop, headphones, and a power cord. The Arizona Republic reported that the man was caught in a store restroom having placed the computer in his waistband. The twist was that the man had not stolen the items from the store’s inventory, but rather from the office of its manager. The suspect was also charged with providing a false name and drivers’ license to police.
