Hmmm I haven’t lifted anything too expensive. I usually lift necessities like food, school supplies, since I’m a college student lol. The best thing I have lifted was a Mercy Pop figure from GameStop. I really wanted it so bad considering the amount of time I play Mercy in Overwatch haha.
most expensive, were GBA, 100$ a pop, from best buys, before they started caging them. Most recent thing i stole was 10+years ago 80-90$ worth of mtg cards, it was around 15-20 packs, most of the time i would steal from 1-10 packs(only once a week). i used to target yugioh, however that game died years ago, and revived recently in a nerfed format, unplayable. ptgc is online now, so i steal those however most places have upped thier security, and some packs are always source tagged, though i often seen peoples haul including tons of packs, or special boxes.
The computer store (Canada Computers) had a checkout counter that they hold customer's chosen stuff so it could checkout quicker. It was a refurbished laptop so the package did not have an RFID chip, and only the tag. I ripped the tag off, tucked the laptop under my shirt and walked it out. I don't think I could pull this again anytime soon, they added at least 2 employees at the counter any given time.
I had a whole lifting ring going when I was a kid. I got a bunch of kids to lift and we stored everything in an abandoned building. But then one of the kids took everything and disappeared and we hunted him for years. The best things we got were videogames.
never good idea to steal with people, 1 always flakes out and greedy, i wouldve called the police on the kid out of spite, and said he stole all of it. I think wouldve been better if you divided the spoils immediately after stealing it.
Yeah. I was like 11.
1000 dollars of jewelry and clothing from Macy’s. I really ought to buck up and go for bigger stuff
Hmm, hard to say. I personally don't lift anything that is really expensive. Just things I need, which is mostly groceries. I have had some lovely food that I would never afford otherwise- smoked salmon, crab, nice bits of meat etc. I lift groceries every few days and it's literally helped me feed my family. I do hopefully have a new job lined up though, and I'm looking forward to being able to go and actually pay for a grocery shop without the stress of getting caught. With the method I use, I only get 1 bag full at a time, which means I have to go quite frequently and it's not ideal at all.
you go to the same shop each time?
I rotate between a few stores. I am certain none are any the wiser. I buy some low priced items like bread and milk etc
im always tempted to lift actual food from grocery stores, but im always in high shrink areas, so in neighborhoods and inner cities. so theres always legit security guards, not lp. since i give off that shoplifter looks, hoodies,baggy pants, backpack, i never try. the places i know they monitor the most in safeway, is the phamacy ,supplement, vitamin aisles.
$1 billion from the Bank of England :D
