Police in Huntington, Ind., arrested a 34-year-old man accused of several instances of theft at an area Wal-Mart. Officials say Mark Tackett would order items online, pick them up at the store and then return with his receipt to steal an identical item; he's also suspected of return fraud, including one instance in which he reportedly tried to return several items before he paid for them. U.S. retailers lost about $14 billion to return fraud last year, according to NRF figures.
