I just started shoplifting. I'll explain myself a bit and then add questions i have.
So i visted r/shoplifting a bit. I was the type of person in awe of how people did it. Some hauls were simply massive. But myself never stole a thing my whole life. Not one. Recently we've been put through the ringer financially. I was gonna explain how i started lifting but that was really long haha. Im not good at short and sweet.
Basically i stole socks for my son. And this second tome yesterday i stole some newborn mittems, a onesie (not om a hanger) a sippy cup and some forks. Well the first time was quick and simple and sucessful. My son has a diaper bag its basically just a kids backpack. I put them in there went to the bathroom tl change him and threw away the tags.
The second time didn't go so well. The cup was harder to slip in my bag. People walked by twice when trying to put stuff in my bag. I did it once in front of a camera (an over head one mind you) i tried to take the tags off in the bathroom and the sippy cup tag was loud and so i left it on there. So i didn't feel it went sucessfully. I left with the items but am scared people saw me.
Naturally becuase i have a child im scared of getting caught but its nice to get him new things when i can afford them.
So basically with my method bieng put items in cart. Put them in bag. Go to bathroom take tags off. Whats the best way to do this? Im worried about bieng caught by cameras even though i try to go to blind spots. And im worried about people finding the tags in the bathroom and like upping security or something? So far i've only lifted frkm walmart.
Also whats the best places to lift from? I've been considering trying my local salvation army. (Yeah i'm a shit person) and other stores. But i have no odea what level of security or the level of care thier employees have.
Any advice much appreciated. If im doing it wrong or could be doing it better i'd love to know. Right now im only stealing for my son. But eventually would love to move up to stealing shoes for him. And one day clothes for me and shoes for me if i get good enough. I was thinking with shoes for him i could bring a knife in my bag to cut the tags off? Anyways sorry im not a great writer.
