Shoplifting ring used heroin addicts and eBay

Proving once again that ebay, drugs, and crime go hand in hand.

Shoplifting ring used heroin addicts and eBay

ALTOONA, Pa. Pennsylvania's top prosecutor says authorities have broken up a pair of shoplifting rings.

He says the rings' masterminds paid heroin addicts to rob retail stores around Altoona. They then allegedly used the online auction site eBay to resell the stolen goods.

The four people involved face dozens of charges, including conspiracy, retail theft and criminal solicitation.

Attorney General Tom Corbett says "the defendants took advantage of the desperation of local drug addicts." While the addicts were paid as much as two-thousand dollars a day, Corbett says they "got sicker and stores were pushed to the brink of closing."

One local sports store reported losses of up to 139-thousand dollars a year.
