Organized Theft a Huge Problem in Chicago

According to statistics, Chicago is among the 10 U.S. cities with the highest number of organized theft reports. These reports include gang thefts from retail outlets, as well as thefts that occur in order to help street gangs. As retailers and police increase their efforts to deal with this type of organized stealing, anyone charged with such an offense will want to consult with a Chicago theft lawyer as soon as possible.

 

The Chicago Police Department, as well as area retailers, have committed to giving more focused attention to the struggle with such theft while admitting that it is difficult, at times, to assess. If store personnel and area law enforcement look for retail theft, organized or not, they will likely see it. Sometimes what they see will be the actual theft they are looking for. However, there is a chance that they will sometimes see theft that is not really there, because theft is what they are trying to find. In those instances when authorities see only what they expect to see, it’s important that the accused get legal representation from a lawyer before agreeing to talk to police or any other officials.

 

Regardless of whether or not you have been accused in Chicago of organized retail crime, retail theft, or any other form of stealing, the prosecution will have a whole retinue of law enforcement, store personnel, investigators, and lawyers available to try to prove the case against you. However, you also can have access to the same kind of expertise when you hire Chicago theft lawyer Andrew M. Weisberg to represent you. Consult with experienced theft lawyer Weisberg in Chicago today to determine how to best proceed with your case.
