    This is the kind of junk you can expect to see in your email over the next few weeks, fol-lowing the recent alert regarding the Heart-bleed virus.

    We received this email to our news account. Close exami-nation of the email shows the From address to be [email protected] Com-puter geeks might have heard of ICQ.

    The Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce issued an alert on their Facebook page about a local shoplift-ing ring in our town.

    It has been brought to our atten-tion that there has been a shoplifting ring formed in Sooke by students from a local school, reads their alert. Apparently, a group of students are having a contest with their peers to see who can shoplift the most mer-chandise in Sooke then brag about it on Facebook.

    One local business that was recently hit was Peoples Drug Mart. Owner Ron Kumar told the Sooke News Mirror that he lost at least $400 in the past week.

    Kumar has several cameras installed in his store. Using social media to his advantage, he was able to identify several of the shoplifters. He anticipates identifying others.

    I caught a few, said Kumar, I intend to recover every cent of it.

    Kumar stressed that this is a great community. Sooke is generally a supportive community, he said. We have such a great community that we love to support. And, he noted, its not all youth. Its just a handful of

    kids doing it. The kids, who are gen-erally aged between 12 and 14, were very good at their distraction tech-niques, he noted. But they werent as good as his cameras.

    The dumb thing is that these kids are doing more harm to themselves. In a few years, points out Kumar, they will be looking for jobs in the community. Its a small town, and using social networking tools like Facebook and comparing them with the images returned from his in-store cameras, identification of these youth has been relatively easy. This small stupid little stint will cost them future employment opportunities.

    Kumars final words of advice?Its not worth it. Its absolutely not

    worth it. Sooke is a great community,

    Kumar stressed, and the businesses in it offer a lot of support, sponsoring sports and providing scholarships. Perhaps the kids should engage in a garbage-collecting competition, something
