Depends on store. I've historically been big on walkouts using a technique that is very tried and true. Won't give details because I don't want it getting foiled. I've recently in a one day binge nabbed $1700 worth of product in 8 items in one day.

Aside from that I'm also big on tag switching and self checkout failure to scan stuff.

Usually walkout is my go to though.

When there is a tag inside the box it is placed by the manufacturer hence why it is referred to as a source tag. Yes there are alot of electronics and high theft items that will be source tagged and have spider wrap.

Don't always count on people when they say certain companies don't source tag either. Anker for example predominantly sells on web based retailers so they don't source tag but I have recently seen they have an RFID sticker they put on the box that says something to the effect of brick and mortar retail tag. That RFID will set off the towers, unless you slice it.

I was going to mention the same thing. Always look up the busiest time of day, and some advanced scouting via the in store photos always helps. I usually do a recon visit a few days before a big lift though. Helps to read some reviews of the store too and pick up some names so you can chat with someone like you know them. I have literally walked out with a cart full of stuff while talking with an associate I had talked to previously in the store. He was just getting off his shift for the day.

I would really like to do this for a pair of $1500 boots from Boot Barn or something. That would be a good boost. They just use those pencil tags so a good stack of magnets concealed in a sleeve would make short work of that.

Probably have to buy a pair of $100 boots with cash just to take focus off.

I would just go to a different location but same store as my target. Get different barcodes ripped off a similar but significantly cheaper product then trim the barcode to fit the one on the item that I want. Put some double stick tape and go to the target location and place the barcode over the original one. Yes, avoid placing the items in the bagging area to avoid the scale flipping out on you. I usually only will approach the self checkout on when the attendant is occupied helping someone else, then quickly scan your items, pay in cash and leave.

It helps to discreetly observe the self checkout prior to approach to note if the attendant is focused on their job or a disinterested person. The focused ones will usually observe everyone and pay attention to their screen watching that what they see people scan matches what is scanned.

I also after scanning the items one by one will discreetly remove the fraudulent barcodes and try to dispose of them in a stealthy fashion.

They would match the serial number. So you could go to the store and make sure you put the serial off the box on your fake receipt. Still risky as LP would likely be watching a TV go through the store. But hey I've heard of plenty successful grab and runs with TVs so it's possible.

Unless you are making a receipt that would sincerely pass for the real thing I wouldn't bother. Just find a good looking receipt in the parking lot and use that. Never stop for a receipt checker just blather quickly about being in a rush or something about not consenting to searches of your property and keep walking.

Yep. Run. Never listen to LP. It pays to be prepared going in. Park far away from the store, or have a fake plate you can easily ditch once you get clear. Once you make it to vehicle GTFO off dodge and use back roads until you make it far enough away. I generally won't lift if I know they're hands on. I'm in this to get my loot, make my money, and not lose my 9-5.

I mostly lift big expensive stuff that I keep or give to people. I did find an item that is very expensive but a low theft item. Nabbed three via a walk out and ended up selling for $500. Plan on getting four more and selling them for a slightly high cost per unit. I generally don't boost. My lifting is to pad out my normal salary and is generally limited to household necessities.

But if I chose to I could easily do maybe $1500 a month being safe from LP and all.

Totally depends on the store. Also depends on you. Dress to fit the typical customer, know the layout of the store, helps if you can stage your chosen items so you can be quick and grab them and bolt. I've done several walkouts at hardware stores for an average of $500 each time. Biggest and bests were $1000 and $800. Helps to be strong to so if it's a large item you can get it in your vehicle in seconds and be outta there within a minute.

But then you'll get enhanced charges if you get caught with a weapon. I got caught once and the cop made a big deal about a cheap ceramic magnet I had forgotten in my pocket from doing an art project earlier in the day.

Most power tools are source tagged. That is they will have an EAS tag inside the tool itself not on the package. They also spider wrap majority as well depending on your area. Best bet is straight walkout but be alert of anyone watching you, or following you.

I've done $900 item walkouts at HD but you need to be ready for that kind of action.

Honestly to do a power tool at HD you need a booster bag, or just be prepared to book it out the door and don't look back.
