Amazon Drivers Identified as Part of Major Theft Ring

The FBI says that they have identified at least two Amazon drivers that were involved in a massive theft ring in Washington.

The ring reportedly stole millions of dollars worth of goods over the past six years as two storefront businesses posing as pawn shops bought the goods from shoplifters, then had the items shipped to Amazon warehouses, where they were stored until sold online. The ringleader alone reportedly did at least $10 million in sales on Amazon since 2013.

The items included allergy medication, razors, electric toothbrushes and tools in their original packaging. Detectives also conducted undercover operations in which they sold new items in their original packaging to the shops, which accepted them no questions asked.
