Police Bust Suspected Shoplifting Ring

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police have busted what they say is a
resale racket to hawk stolen household goods at swap meets and
other places. Authorities say a raid last week on three storage sheds turned up $100,000 in stolen goods.

An inventory of what was found includes: more than 2,000 bottles
of shampoo, 447 deodorant sticks, at least 300 toilet paper rolls,
150 tequila bottles and 120 cans of baby formula.

Police say the goods were stolen over months from various
convenience stores, supermarkets and other retailers.

Authorities say about 30 thieves were involved and sold the
merchandise to ringleaders.

Police say the three suspected ringleaders have been arrested on
unrelated charges, but are expected to be charged for having the
stolen goods.
