No. Being summer, the sod is a popular item so there is usually an associate(s) nearby. Same with the outdoor corral with the bigger trees, bushes and plants. There is usually an associate watching over that corral but not always! The trees especially are bulky and heavy, as is the sod, so I don’t think they except those to be high risk items.

I’ve taken both before, BUT, i “found” an employee vest left on a forklift and i was able to wear it and grab about 20 rolls of sod before a confused “coworker” asked if I was stationed outside? Basically, once you get the stuff in the truck, it’s yours.

For the love of all things holy, remove your license plates while doing the job. Also, do it during weekend days, not nights.

I went to HD and would go directly to the sod/chips and load my truck up with the thinking that if they came out I would tell them I was going in to pay after I knew how much I could load and thought thats how it was supposed to be. By the end of the day I had 6 truckloads of bark and did a 6000 sf house plus dudes business completely. Only on the very last load did they come out and I cleaned them out completely of bark. This was a couple years ago but I know you could easily do it today. You have plausible deniability.
