Authorities arrested several suspects accused of operating a retail theft ring accused of stealing more than $100,000.
According to police, a total of eight people from Washington County were arrested. Investigators said each person had a defined role.
Police told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that the group would steal items and then return them to the store for refunds.
According to the criminal complaint, Heather Dillon, Stacey Lyle and Richard Rogers would steal the items and the others would return them for gift cards. The gift cards would then be sold.
The complaint said in one month, the group made 75 bogus returns totaling almost $15,000.
Investigators said it appears as if Marshalls department stores in various counties were the main targets for the thefts, and the most popular store was Marshalls in Cranberry Township.
“We know they have hit other stores. These guys are from Washington County, and they’ve been all over the place,” Cranberry Township Police Sgt. Chuck Mascellino said.
Authorities said the suspects are cooperating and naming other stores they targeted.
