Missing Merchandise Sends Office Depot Investigators to OKC
Missing merchandise in stores across the country prompted an
investigation by Office Depot that ended up with an Oklahoma City arrest. Police say Office Depot was noticing items
not showing up in various stores in several states. They tracked the incomplete shipments to a
warehouse in Oklahoma City. That’s when store investigators put GPS
tracking devices on some of the most common missing items. The GPS led them to the home of a warehouse
Office Depot called Oklahoma City
police who arrested Roger Shrum, 44 of Oklahoma
City. Shrum is
facing an embezzlement charge after police recovered thousands of dollars worth
of merchandise from his parent’s garage.
Police say items in Shrum’s possession included, laptops, routers, hard
drives and office supplies like pens and erasers.
Fox 25 spoke with Shrum’s parents who say they had no idea
he was using their home to store the stolen items. They say he has lived with them for several years
but didn’t know he was involved in anything that would bring the police to their
home. His parents say they are worried
Shrum may be involved with drugs and dangerous people and they hope he’s now able
to get the help he needs.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the nation must do more than just remember its fallen heroes on Memorial Day.
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the country must care for the loved ones the fallen leave behind. He says the country must also make sure that all veterans receive the care and benefits they have earned.
Obama says that, above all, the armed forces must have the support needed to carry out their missions at home and abroad.
In the Republican address, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe thanks the nation for its prayers and support following Monday's deadly tornado in his home state. He recalls past natural and man-made disasters in Oklahoma and says that while the state was hard hit, "we're not knocked out."
