Are Backpacks Sus?

Submitted by RedBullBandit in Shoplifting

My friend and I are going to be going to my local convenience store later this week (no cameras or anything), and I am going to use a backpack to conceal at least $25 worth of red bull. Do they always think people with backpacks are stealing?

No. About 1 in 10 people with backpacks steal. It’s an initial red flag, but if they think your just shopping they’ll move on and watch someone else. Shoplifters give multiple signs usually

Better off wearing a cargo short and stuffing them in the pant.

No. But if you're going to do a convenience store be very careful because it's a small store and they may have cameras in every corner. Ever seen Gas Station Encounters?

Love GSE, but this is a wawa, actually just stole a can of red bull using the waistband method, nobody thought twice about me walking out without buying anything.

Ohhh, okay, I thought you were hitting up a typical convenience store. Well, if that's how the store is, you shouldn't be seen as suspicious, just for a backpack. Act like a customer, and don't look up at the counter.

local convenience stores the employees are much more wary of your prescence, they often look for people with backpacks an easy red flags. best place to steal are stores near schools, then they know your a student and less likely to follow you.

Honestly if your goal is just the Res Bull your far better off and it's way less risky to simply wear a backpack into Walmart load up red bull there and leave cause also if you do it at Walmart and Say only take 10 each trip and nothing else even if LP sees you he may not stop or just verbally warn you since it's a small $ amount and it's a food/drink product. You could just get the same amount over the course of 2 days.

Then since you're such a bigshot you must not remember much about how it's still very possible that walmart will call the police if the LP is a dickhead and it's better to just try and not get caught the first time instead of walking in and out of the store buying nothing two days in a row.
