Retail Theft

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) A federal grand jury has charged
seven people with selling nearly $8 million worth of stolen
merchandise from drug stores like Walgreens, Target, CVS and
Rite-Aid.

The charges follow a four-year investigation into organized
retail theft by several law enforcement agencies. Federal
prosecutors said Tuesday that the seven people charged either
worked for or sold stolen merchandise to South Florida-based
Pharmacare.

Authorities say the company operated a warehouse in
Sunrise where store labels and anti-theft devices were removed from
stolen items so they could be resold.

Those listed in the indictment are Duane Schneider, Nasir Khan,
Asif Khan, Michael Spencer, Edward Joseph Smith, James Edward Foy
and Michael Todd Dagnen.
