Oakland County Million Dollar Theft Ring Busted

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - A narcotics team in Oakland County says they've arrested five people who stole over three million dollars of merchandise, taking up to 15-thousand dollars of items a day in the process.

Officials say five people ranging in age from 23 to 47 were involved in the retail fraud ring.

The narcotics enforcement team says it got a tip in February that the group was selling large amounts of pseudophedrine, possibly being used to make methamphetamine.

But officials say an investigation turned up a warehouse in Hazel Park with almost three million dollars of Victoria's Secret merchandise and other name-brand items.

They also found 75 thousand dollars of cash.

The narcotics enforcement team says the group was selling the stolen goods online.

All five people are due back in court later this month.
