MATTHEWS – The Matthews Police Department will implement an organized retail crime initiative in partnership with local stores from Nov. 29 to Dec. 29 called “Operation Santa Knows.”

Police will work with retail loss prevention to increase reporting, investigating and solving retail theft cases. The goal is to identify, charge and prosecute offenders responsible for such crimes as well as the criminal enterprises that fuel them.

In addition to being charged criminally, anyone apprehended in the operation will also be trespassed from the store.
