They have LP. Plainclothes are roving around. I've lifted around $2000 in furniture from them in 3 trips. The second time I was spotted by LP and I saw them since they were pretty obvious by that time. I ditched and did a costume change, came back hours later and got the rest of my stuff They also use some kind of software system with their cameras to detect fraudulent behavior, much like Target does.

Expensive stuff. Like $800-$1000 stuff I could afford to buy but prefer to keep the money. I have $2000 worth of Hue lights in my house. Expensive electronics whenever I see the opportunity. I lift almost all consumables at home, those $300 grocery shopping trips per week add up so I just lift majority of it.

If I'm boosting then whatever is expensive but not commonly stolen so it's low risk. Ive been making $2000 a month off a certain home improvement product that's low theft but very easily sold.

I will always lift stuff when I see a window of opportunity. That's how I got a Dyson heat/cool circulator, and vacuum. Wasn't spider wrapped, and store was super busy with no one near the doors.

After deferred is over it will be sealed or rather non disclosed. The beauty of municipal and alot of government careers are once you're in you don't go through any more background checks. I've been promoted twice since my most recent charge and they dont do background on internals. I'll be in my same organization until I retire so I'm sitting pretty.

You can still make it go away. I've had 4 separate misdemeanor offenses all separated by a couple years. Never spent a day in jail, all are expunged now. My background checks are clear, I have a municipal career and still have it even with my current charge that I'm on deferred adjudication for right now. I still lift and do walkouts. The justice system just aims to make money through fines and fees, if you're in jail you can't make them money just cost them. Same for getting charges expunged, it makes them money through administration fees.

Walking out is a total commitment. You need to know exactly what you want and be prepared with a new looking receipt hidden on your person. You want to be quick but not look hurried and be well dressed or appropriate to the store you're at.

Walkouts are my preferred method. But yes do not stop for anyone. Be aware of what's going on around you but don't be suspicious. Once you have your chosen goods get out and don't look back or stop. Helps to have a fake plate on your vehicle too... Once you get away stick to back roads in case PD is enroute and looking for your vehicle. I do $1000 walkouts so that's a real concern for me.

It doesn't work. They will transfer you all over, you have to get a police report and then they will call to verify it to the actual department through records. So it kind of works but not worth the hassle.

They call the agency to verify them now. People have apparently been trying to impersonate officers on the phone to verify bogus reports so now they call the station and speak with the records clerk to authenticate. So it's getting harder and harder.

I started due to a situation at work. We were scraping by, then she got laid off and we were really bad off. Fortunately I ended up switching careers and making more than enough to support us on my salary alone. She knew I had started lifting and was totally against it. Once we got back on good footing she was even more against it, especially since we could afford everything I was getting.

Not she just doesn't want to hear or know about anything and she gets upset when random stuff just appears. She's also learned not to mention she likes something she sees at a store since it will usually appear at home within the next few days.

For myself I grew to enjoy having all the stuff I want, and what she wants without paying for it.

To save money. I can afford everything I lift. I just like having all the nice stuff I have knowing I didn't pay for it. I also gift some of it.

Occasionally I boost to pad out my retirement account more.
