A Millville woman could be facing five years in prison after she admitted to running an organized shoplifting ring in South Jersey.Apparently, Chiara Pender and other members of the shoplifting ring would steal items, and return them for store credit in the form of gift cards.*

THEN, they would sell these gift cards to pawn shops. With this scheme, they were able to accumulate $20,000 in a matter of 6 months. Not too shabby in a short period of time, until they were caught of course.

Some of my favorite stores like, Marshall’s, Walmart, and Home Goods, were among the stores targeted. Although I could already imagine how my closet would look with $20,000 worth of merchandise -I wonder how this affected these South Jersey stores.

Chiara Pender pled guilty in Camden County Superior Court on Friday and is heading back for sentencing on May 26.

Have you worked in retail before? What exactly happens when someone shoplifts and does it directly affect employees?
