INDIANAPOLIS, Ind - When 41-year-old William Allen allegedly shot Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer Eric Rosenbaum two weeks ago, Allen was already being investigated for multiple thefts at retail stores in at least two counties.
Investigators believe Allen, who already had criminal history in four states, was making money through organized retail crime, or ORC.
“When you are stealing product and making profit,” said Lowe’s Regional Security Director, Matt Thompson.
Thompson oversees security and asset protection at 36 Lowe’s stores in Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. [More]
