Exposed: Corporate Theft
NiB Case Study
Recently, NiB was hired to look into allegations that product and merchandise was being stolen from a Johannesburg plant of a multi-million Rand provider of consumer packaging and industrial products.
NiB provided stake out teams at the facility and eventually mobile surveillance teams to not only document and prove the theft was occurring, but also to work as liaisons with local law enforcement. The evidence obtained on video by NiB investigators of employee theft provided law enforcement with the proof they needed to apprehend the criminals.
This case was one of many cases worked by NiB over the years that involved employee theft at distribution centers and trucking companies throughout South Africa. Often, we find that it is a coordinated effort by employees working on the loading docks along with the drivers of the trucks to get the stolen merchandise away from the facility without being detected. It is difficult to prove the theft with stationary surveillance cameras alone. Through the use of mobile surveillance teams and gps tracking capabilities, NiB can assist your company in properly investigating theft issues and provide the proof required to apprehend and prosecute those involved.
