Last year, the D&D Daily gave you, for the first time ever, a four year study of publicly reported ORC Cases. We analyzed the numbers of every single ORC case that was reported on since 2012, and provided you with the number of cases, dollar amount reported from each year, and the top trends driving organized retail crime.
Now, we are going to give you a look at this first quarter in terms of how organized retail crime is projected to develop for the rest of 2016. Here is the Daily's breakdown of this year's Quarter 1, compared to first quarters over the past four years. So far, it looks close in numbers to last year's first quarter. Could this year beat out last year? We will have to wait and see.
So far in the first quarter of 2016, the Daily has reported 368 Cases with a total of 762 suspects, and over $208 million dollars reported.
The top 5 cases by dollar amount that the Daily has reported thus far are:
Leader of International, $200 Million Credit Card Fraud Scheme
Five Arrested in $1 Million+ Florida Cargo Theft Ring
'Shoulder surfing' husband gets prison in $600K Walmart Check Scam
Workers steal over $500,000 of Lobster Meat from Distribution Center
