Fishers, (Indiana) – Another extensive investigation has led to the arrest of an Indianapolis man suspected of shoplifting from several large retail businesses across Indiana including Fishers.
This retail shoplifting investigation began in March of 2019 after it was determined an individual was shoplifting at several area “big box” stores in Fishers. With the assistance of area retailers, state, local, and federal law enforcement partners Fishers police officers were able to develop a suspect. After several days of surveillance, officers were able to gather information and evidence leading to the arrest of this individual.
Further investigation revealed that since 2010 this individual had been selling stolen merchandise thru his on-line E-Bay Business Account and he had customers from all over the world. Officers obtained a subpoena for E-Bay records and confirmed this individual had received payments in excess of 1.1 million dollars since 2010.
