LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas police have busted what they say is a resale racket to hawk stolen household goods at swap meets and other places.
Authorities say a raid last week on three storage sheds turned up $100,000 in stolen goods.
An inventory of what was found includes: more than 2,000 bottles of shampoo, 447 deodorant sticks, at least 300 toilet paper rolls, 150 tequila bottles and 120 cans of baby formula.
Police say the goods were stolen over months from various convenience stores, supermarkets and other retailers.
Authorities say about 30 thieves were involved and sold the merchandise to ringleaders.
Police say the three suspected ringleaders have been arrested on unrelated charges, but are expected to be charged for having the stolen goods.
