Swiping consoles/laptops at Walmart.

Submitted by SaddestGirlNA in Shoplifting (edited )

Alright, I posted a while back about wanting to lift electronics from my local Walmart. I'm homeless and desperately need to flip some stuff for cash.

Since my last post, I've scoped these out and confirmed that they are 8 pin locks and so I'll need an 8 pin tubular lockpick. I also know that loss prevention works at this store late at night since some (less experienced) friends have been caught there after 10pm.

How much should an 8 pin tubular lockpick run me? Where can I find one for the cheapest? What time of day would be best for casually unlocking these cabinets and making off with laptops or consoles?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

It may be better for you to steal smaller things tho and sell. because after doing something this big you wont be able to go back to the store. they may even post your picture on the news to try to catch you. and if you cant go back to the store you cant keep making money off them.

Yeah, I wouldn't consider something this big if I wasn't going to leave the area really soon.

What smaller things would you recommend?

Headphones. Tools are good too. Where I live I post things on facebook market place for half its price and they go the same day. I live in dfw tho which is a huge metroplex.

I hope one day to find a safe way to get behind counters, when I do I'll post it.

I think it’s a 7 pin. It has 1-8 numbers in writing but if you count the pins it’s 7. They’re cheap. 10 bucks. I would go when it’s busy and dump the goods somewhere so you can steal them later. If they stop you when you leave, the most they can do is ban you at most stores. Obviously you left without taking anything so if they charged you with theft it probably wouldn’t hold up in court. Try to do the lock picking part when there’s at least 2 other suspicious looking people in the store who are likely stealing.

If there’s just one camera that can see the locked cabinet. A lot of times you can put a large item in the cart to block the view of you picking the lock. And go on a busy weekend evening. At about 8 or 9. It will be packed with customers but lacking in employees because of the time of day. I’ve even been there after 10 and it was super busy with pretty much no employees. Which would be even better than going at 8 or 9 if it’s busy.

if you attempt to open it, or damaged it just a little, but hid it someplace in the store, they can charge you with vandalism instead.

Great advice as always. Thanks! You're right, it had 1-8 written on it, but I didn't count the actual pins. I'd just assumed.

Wish me luck.

seems risky to try to steal something that expensive, theres a much higher risk in getting caught. this can be considered burglary since you are using a lockpick.
