Retail Profiling Lawsuits: Businesses Would Rather Lose Merchandise Than Detain Potential Shoplifters
Retailers lose $45 billion dollars annually to theft, about $10 billion of that to shoplifting. Yet the last thing stores may want to do is catch a thief.
The Rite Aid pharmacy chain has agreed to pay $500,000 to settle allegations that it failed to fully comply with rules about consulting with customers in California who receive new prescriptions.
A $20,000 reward was being offered for information leading to the conviction of two men who have conducted a series of armed robberies in San Leandro since the beginning of the year, according to police.
