An undercover police task force has busted a more than one million dollar shoplifting ring that targeted discount retail stores along I-75.
57 men and women were arrested on a total of 116 theft and other assorted felony and misdemeanor charges. The six-week investigation by police departments in several communities, also included sheriff departments in Fayette and Clinton counties.
Authorities claim 60% of those arrested could be described as individuals who make their living or supplement their income by stealing or fencing stolen items at flea markets, pawn shops and on the internet.
