Hey guys, I'm planning on going interstate to another major metropolitan city to do a big lifting spree. I've been tight for cash over the past year and I've realized that I'm spending money on nonsense that I don't need to spend money on. My new philosophy is that if I can reasonably acquire items and resources that are going to aid my in achieving my goals without being caught I'm going to do that. Money is an incredibly valuable thing and I'm only going to spend it when I absolutely must.
I plan on spending a week in this city and just hitting as many stores as I can where I will be able to take possession of the items on my list from less valuable to more valuable as I come toward the end of the week. I'm not going to hit the same stores twice. At the end of the week I want to hit a couple of mid range (value) menswear stores and get my hands on a couple of slim fit suit jackets.
Now, stealing a $400-500 suit is an incredibly risky maneuver, what tips would you guys recommend? My plan was to walk into a store like p0l1t1x one day, try on the jackets, get a feel for the store, and stage the lift as much as I can. If I see an opportunity to move the jacket closer to the exit, I'll do that, if I can't do that, but I can remove some tags, I'll do that. As much staging as I can reasonably do.
I plan on coming in the following day, wearing a loosely put together disguise (some glasses, an inconspicuous hat), putting the suit jacket on, walking out and as soon as I'm out, sprinting like an Olympic athlete halfway across the city, until I'm absolutely sure and confident that nobody's watching me, and then going back to my hotel. The next day I'll post the lifted items back home and take what I can with my on the flight.
Any tips? Suggestions? Warnings?
