New website targets crime by gangs, groups

Using a new secure website, retailers and law enforcement authorities will be able to post bulletins about organized retail theft, robberies, counterfeiting and related crimes and scams.
Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery says the site’s searchable database will enable authorities to spot patterns, connect cases and prevent additional crimes.
Michelle Ahlmer of the Arizona Retailers Associations says the website enables retailers who normally are competitors to cooperate with each other on a problem of mutual concern.
