Suncoast man defrauds a company of $200,000 over a 12-month period in a return-fraud scheme.
Francesco Abbruzzino, The Uncensored Report, LLC
The Economic Crimes Unit was created in October 2021 to combat the uptick in fraud and scams committed on our residents and businesses. One of their main focuses is organized retail crime or ORC.
ORC is a complex issue which requires detailed investigative experience and time investment to uncover. Just recently, the ECU completed a painstaking investigation for Lululemon that ultimately led to the arrest of 55-year-old Mark Tilley of Bradenton.
In this multistate investigation, our detectives found Tilley had defrauded the company of $200,000 over a 12-month period in a return-fraud scheme. This type of crime causes retail prices to increase which sooner or later fall on the consumer.
Thank you to the ECU detectives for bringing this case to a close!
