... by walk out but too scared to do it.

I have no problem stuffing small items in my pocket or up my sleeve at said store but an 80 dollar coat is too big to walk out with and i fear LP may be watching me through cameras while I'm in the clothing section. I know they're supposed to have the five steps but I also know that rules don't mean shit to them because if they're right it don't matter. They'll just say they had the five steps. I realize if they ever stop me i can just drop the merch and walk away but I don't want it to even come to that.

Any advice for how to boost my confidence? Sorry if I sound like a chicken to the pros but everyone starts small. I understand there's limited advice that can be given in my situation. At the bottom of it, either u have the balls to do it or you don't.

Your last sentence answers your own question. Walk in through one entrance, put on the jacket, rip off the tags and out them in the pocket, walk out the other exit. In and out within 3 min. Park at a different store or walk. You'll be fine.

I swear they put something on like an electronic tag that needs to be removed with a special tool or else any tampering sets alarm off

Mission Accomplished Folks!

Followed Undetectable's advice. Walked in through one entrance, tried the coat on, then put on my old coat on top of it. Old coat was big enough to completely cover it underneath. Ripped the tags, put them in my pocket, and walked out.

No one stopped me or followed me. Not that I could see.

You have a couple of options.

Pick up the coat, detag in a blind spot, and wear out of the store. If you dress to match the coat you want and act unsuspisciously, perhaps even buying a candy bar or something else that's cheap with cash.

Smash and grab- walk in, pick up the jacket, and walk out again. Don't stop walking no matter who calls out to you. Run if you need to.

Shopping cart walk out- fill up a cart to normal levels and do the same as before.

All of these options have the possibility of burning the store. Do you have access to a vehicle? Public transport would also help. You want to go to one that hasn't seen you in a long time (months) and you haven't used a credit card at.

This increases your chances of not being caught if LP tries to chase. Hide or remove your plates. Or walk from a few blocks away.

Sorry if any of this doesn't make sense, I had to write it quickly in between errands. Like undetectable said, it's not a big deal. Just be confident.

my best advice is play the part. walk around like your shopping and dont conceal anything if you dont conceal anything, for one your not gonna be looking around to see if anyone is watching so your gonna look less sketchy. and second the moment you conceal something they are able to call the cops and then you are gonna have a pig waiting for you out side. walk around and shop for your items you want and then you head for the doors like you own the shit and maybe be holding a receipt in your hand. if you are gonna conceal something dont do it untill you are seconds from walking out the door

It's already done bud! Read my post above from 10 days ago.

Just wore the coat under my old coat and walked out. That was it!

Do drugs. Mathamphetamatiks first for the insane confidence, followed with some benzitos to take the paranoid edge off.
