Houston in top 10 cities for organized retail crime

Posted on June 6th, 2012 No Comments

Houston ranks in the top ten cities in the nation for organized retail theft, according to the National Retail Federation‘s Organized Retail Crime Survey.

The group describes organized retail crime as “theft/fraudulent activity conducted with the intent to convert illegally obtained merchandise, cargo, cash, or cash equivalent into financial gain (no personal use), typically through their online or offline sales.” The survey uncovered that 96% of retailers in the Houston area have experienced such crimes.

Other cities in the top ten include Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas.

Organized retail crime is just one type of theft that can result in serious criminal charges. If you are being accused of theft, contact the theft defense lawyers of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. at 713-222-0400.
