I just thought I’d say something about this. A lot of people think they can steal all the time without ever getting caught. There are methods that if you follow to a t every time, you will never get caught, however everyone makes mistakes. Let’s say you have a 1 in 100 chance of making a mistake every time you shoplift. Well if you shoplift on 2 occasions then that turns into 2 in 100. 3 occasions, that’s 3 in 100. And so on. I know most people who get caught do so because they get too comfortable and get careless. But I just think this is something to consider. Also if your hitting the same stores. They will eventually start setting traps to try to catch you.
Edit: I always recommend finding a store with a GOOD blind spot, set up in a way where there are no places for lp to hide and watch you on foot. Hide your merchandise in that blind spot then pick it up a couple days later. If it’s a huge haul some lp will even watch it for the rest of the day if they see that you’ve staged the merchandise. The bigger the haul the longer you wait to pick it up.
