A New Focus for Criminals

Well, I still get amazed every now and then at the ingenuity of the criminal classes. A case came across my desk recently involving a very sophisticated interstate burglary/theft operation. What was unusual was what these thieves were stealing:

Contact lenses.

Just contact lenses. As in hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of them, apparently destined for ultimate sale overseas.

I can just imagine the prison conversation:
"Whatcha in for?"
"Robbery--you??"
"Contact lenses."
