Organized retail crime syndicates are increasingly resorting to violence in their quest for ill-gotten gains.
According to the ninth annual Organized Retail Crime, or ORC, Survey to be released by the National Retail Federation today, 18.3 percent of in-store apprehensions in retail theft cases led to some level of violence by the suspects, up from 15.2 percent in last year’s study and just 13 percent in 2011.
