The Los Angeles Police Department is shutting down one of its most highly valued, specialized undercover units to cut costs and put more uniformed officers back on the street. The unit, designed for recovering stolen property and arresting thieves and fences, is credited with hundreds of arrests and millions of dollars in returned property. It also has a conviction rate nearing 100% because most of the cases it cracked were videotaped, authorities said.
