HAZEL PARK (WKZO) -- Five people are being charged for their involvement in what authorities say was a multimillion-dollar shoplifting ring headquartered in Hazel Park.

Detectives with the Oakland County Narcotics Enforcement Team began their investigation into a possible methamphetamine operation after they received reports of three women stealing cold medicines and other over-the-counter drugs from area stores. That investigation, though, led authorities to a warehouse near 8 Mile and Dequindre which contained more than three-million dollars worth of stolen merchandise from stores including Victoria's Secret, CVS and Walgreens.

Officials say the women would shoplift up to 15-thousand dollars worth of merchandise a day. The trio, along with two men, have each been charged with organized retail crime and receiving and concealing stolen property.
