Fellas, forget about moralizing aspect, it's just a STRAIGHT UP STUPID thing to even ask, let alone attempt to do. First off it would be pretty much impossible for a regular customer to get to the back area, unless they had a gun or broke into the store while it's closed!! Also, if a lifter somehow did get to the back area, you'd have to take time and look what is in each bag. How would you even know where to find what you are looking for? It's completely ridiculous. You can see from his language and car hopping question that he is probably trolling and wants a reaction.

If this moronic poster was serious, the kind of theft he wants to know about would involve being an employee of a place/inside job which would give you access to back area prescriptions and people's cars. Most of us here who have lifted for a while know this, though. He probably needs to look for an employee theft site. haha

This is a post of the year candidate here. haha Just recently had a rainy day in the 60's where I'm at which means its cold enough to put on a jacket that is a bit bulky and bigger items for me to lift. Depending on the jacket, you have at least 4 or 5 pockets to conceal items into, instead of 2 or 3 that you'd have with pants or shorts. I don't have the ballz to lift with a backpack because I think it immediately draws attention to you from employees and LP, so the cold weather is when I can lift the most.

I've got a question for you guys, when you buy or lift jackets, do you check the pockets to see how easy it would be conceal items? A few months ago I bought a jacket from a thrift shop and was checking the pockets to see how good a particular jacket would be for concealing. I'm guessing a lot of you do that because it's best to plan out your methods of lifting beforehand. haha

The family probably stole large amount of items multiple times, Walmart was able to identify them and called the cops next time they entered Walmart. I don't think an undercover cop sting operation will be used for someone lifting alone which most of us seem to be. But it's good to know that this is possible at Walmart.

I just accept the fact that the summer time is a down period for me and just get things that are small enough to fit in my pants pockets, some of these items include candy bars, pens, batteries, medicines and small bottle items like soaps and sauces/condiments. I try to stock up on items that can fit into my coat pocket such as lotion, deodorant, toothpaste, fragrances, air-freshners, drain-o, mouthwash during the month of May because it's the last month where you will have days cold enough to where a coat. Thankfully, I lifted enough of those products to last until mid September when the weather starts getting cool again. lol

I don't have the balls to use a backpack like some of you. I guess if you use a backpack you can lift whatever you want year round and the weather is not an issue. I do use the self checkout to lift though, but I pretty much use it for items that are too big to conceal.
