Det. Hallman was the lead detective charged with investigating a large scale organized ring that was stealing high priced sunglasses from multiple locations of large chain store eyeglass retailer and selling them on EBAY. Once the subjects were identified several search warrants were executed leading to the recovery of over $58,000 in stolen merchandise.
Follow up investigation also revealed that the subjects had conducted approximately 2900 transactions on EBAY in a 13 month period resulting in $580,000 in stolen merchandise being sold to unsuspecting buyers. This case is now being prosecuted by the Statewide Prosecutor and five people are facing charges. It is for her actions on this case that Detective Hallman is being awarded an Exceptional Police Initiative Commendation.
