Where I'm at, it's the opposite - the older stores have tons of cameras and towers, while the newer stores are more lax.

I knew they had stickers on things like lotion, but I'm really glad I set off those towers BEFORE leaving, rather than while I was leaving. It was great that some other guy was walking in at the time, so if anyone had noticed, it would've looked like it was him.

Just for fun, I'd like to peel off a bunch of those stickers, and slap them on carts people are using, while they have their backs turned. Can you imagine those towers going off again and again. Lol, they'd probably call in a repairman to see wtf was happening.

Around here, Walmart would have video of you exiting, and the local cops would plaster your picture all over social media, asking for the public's help identifying you.

Make sure you park far enough away so that the cameras can't get a good look at your license plates. Some cameras are pretty hi-def, so slapping some mud over the plates wouldn't hurt.

Congrats on the haul, but be careful and don't get greedy.

I've never been to Kroger, but here's information from the shoplifting master list https://raddle.me/wiki/ShopliftingMasterList

Kroger: Decent LP, who often pose as shelf stockers, and will trail people who conceal merchandise. Kroger tends to case-build on known lifters. Cameras are monitored most of the time, but are sometimes turned off around closing time.One of the harder grocery stores.

I can't tell by your username if you're a girl. But if you are, pretending to check your makeup or whatever with a compact is a good excuse for looking into that mirror to see what or who is behind you.

Or if you're a guy, you can check out your guyliner and do the same thing - lol

That would work with the lotion, but most of the tagged items are things like phone accessories, with the tags inside. You really can't open the plastic packaging without making a hell of a racket, and the store is really small. Even if you take it to the bathroom, the staff room is right next to it, so they'd hear something being unwrapped. So I have to content myself with other, quieter items.

One old bitch greeter physically confronted me and wouldn't let me leave without seeing my receipt. I had never stolen anything in my life, and I kept asking her why she wanted to see my receipt. I finally showed it to her, and I complained to the manager about her hassling me when I had done nothing wrong. The manager didn't do shit about it.

That's when I decided to start stealing from Walmart. If you treat me like a thief, I'll act like one.

I've squashed cardboard boxes like this, too, but I never put them in a bag of any kind. Wear a loose top with slightly tight pants so nothing falls out, then shove the item into your pants. Then, if somebody wants to check your bag, purse, backpack, whatever, they won't find anything.
