How many times have you been caught, charged, or arrested? What's your favorite store to go to? What's your typical method for lifting and how long do you spend in store? And finally, (if male), what do you use to allow for a bigger haul (equipment, bags, etc.) that would not arouse suspicion?

I have been “caught” several times, but the LP/AP didn’t have their steps and couldn’t really do anything.

I have never been arrested, but have been caught and charged with misdemeanor theft. It was dismissed in court.

I hit a lot of Walmart’s. That’s probably my main store, but I go everywhere from Target to Dillard’s.

Lifting method varies depending on what I’m getting and where. Sometimes I conceal, sometimes I walkout. Barcode swaps are good for bigger items but since I have to pay it makes the profit margin smaller.

My biggest hauls come from Walmart typically where I just use a fake receipt. The Walmart app allows you to view a receipt after purchase. I photoshop the image and then use a receipt printer to print the receipt. My printer is the same model Walmart uses, so it’s badically a replica. I also use Walmart receipt paper that I bought online through Craigslist from an employee.

Many people have been caught using that method at Wal-Mart and other stores. You're on camera while you remove merchandise from shelves and move to the returns area. Even if you're just doing walkouts, you're still on camera. Doesn't sound like it will end well for you.

People have been caught using any and every method. So that’s irrelevant. Walking into any store puts you on camera and lifting in a time where cameras exist is always a risk.

I understand what you're saying. If it's been working for you, more power to you, but obviously you know that there's a huge difference between using blind spots and just hoping that you won't be stopped after being surveilled while you're grabbing merchandise and attempting to walk out with a fake receipt.

My method is hiding merch in blind isles and picking up the next day. I’ve been lifting about 9 years, never caught but have noticed I was being watched and had to dump goods before. Walmart is my favorite store. I just use as little as I need for the haul. Usually a faraday bag taped to the inside of a baggy pair of shorts will do. You arouse sus by not being s normal shopper. If you have a bag and look like a thief, but they think your just shopping. They’ll only watch you for 5 minutes tops. Don’t walk fast but spend as little time in the store as possible.
