Loss Prevention Case of the Year Award: Barry Vaughn, area investigator, Old Navy. This award recognizes investigators whose work has made a significant impact on their companies, communities and industry. Vaughn is being recognized for his work uncovering a complex, multi-state scheme involving fraudulent debit card purchases worth more than $500,000. Several local, state and federal law enforcement officers from multiple agencies also played a role in the case. As a result, the individual convicted was sentenced to three years in prison.
