It is essentially a business enterprise," said Rich Mellor, vice president of loss prevention with the federation.

"The new trend is disturbing in that these thieves are now making better return on their time stealing merchandise," said Richard Mellor, the vice president of loss prevention for the National Retail Federation.
Mellor said that thieves can get as much as 90 percent of full retail value, plus sales tax, thanks to gift card fraud, as opposed to a small percentage when selling the items to a fence - a person who acts as a channel for stolen goods.

said Rich Mellor, the federation's vice president of loss prevention.
The tougher state laws help, said Mellor of the National Retail Federation. But the patchwork of state-by-state laws motivates thieves to cross state lines in search of less severe punishment should they get caught. With Indiana being surrounded by states with organized retail crime laws, criminals in the Midwest could be drawn to the Hoosier state. "The criminals are very quick to hop state lines," Mellor said. "For example, I'm in the Washington, D.C., area, and Virginia and Maryland are all so close. They'll jump across into Virginia, where they're home free with the stuff they stole in D.C. or Maryland." The National Retail Federation has been lobbying for organized retail crime to be defined as a federal crime with appropriate sentencing guidelines. "We've been advocating for a number of years, so the federal lawmakers are tuned into it ,and they know how serious it is," Mellor said.
