Don’t be to hard on boomers bro, I'm one and I’ve been in the game decades. There are do-gooders of every age, you just got bad luck this time.

Sorry for your situation, definitely use it as a learning experience. Never return to your car if you think you are being followed. Start walking down the street or if all else fails, drop the basket/item and keep walking. Return when the coast is clear or have a buddy come get your car, I've had to do that in the past...

Having someone to distract the clerk always helps. I have a bro who would go and ask for an item like a headlight for an 82 Toyota or something and ask if its in stock. They will check the computer of course and will have to go fetch it. (Make sure they have it, check online).

Basically get the clerk to walk to the back to check stock and be ready to walk out the door. Your buddy can then “forget his wallet” and leave. Depending on the store, staffing, time of day, etc, its not hard to do a walkout. Solo takes some guts because I see autozohne employees go out to the parking lot to assist customers often.

I have a super baggy pair of cargo pants, tight at the waist, baggy legs. I can fit two pairs of jeans, dress pants on underneath and its hard to tell.

I have to wear a long shirt or jacket to hide the fact my belt is at max and my pants are undone, but it works! You can of course wear a couple shirts out as well.

There is a large weather related factor of course. If it’s middle of summer, you will have to bag it, untag it, and do a walkout.

I worked at HD for about 2 years, about 15 years ago so I might be a little out of date. At that time we had plainclothes lp who usually worked as a pair, they would ask sometimes for us to approach a customer, etc. If there was a code, us drones didn’t know it?

An exact link to the exact magnet you bought would be perfect. I bought a magnet off eBay that was 16000gs or more and couldn’t get the turtle off in store.

I heard there is a way to puncture the speaker with a nail/hammer but am not sure? I’m a pro with magnets but I haven’t been able to beat the turtle yet... any advice on defeating the turtle would be welcome.

If I knew a store with a Cuck Norris LP/AP i’d definitely try this. Resist enough to where he overreacts and pile drives you into the cement.

Hopefully you will have sustained an injury, but if not, the moment they realize you were innocent and Norris went rogue, you can lawyer up!

More details please!

I’ve never lifted during Black Friday but have been in and out of a few stores, aside from also working retail during this sh*tshow.

The only thing I can add is that I noticed, especially in stores like T@rge, Wally, Breast bye, most emphasis is on electronics (obviously) areas like grocery are dead zones.

Point I’m trying to make is, use this to your advantage, lift simpler items in dead zones. My bad ass took a 1.68 Monster drink from the cooler, opened it, and drank it while I lifted a few action figures. If you are going for pricey items, electronics, you better git gud, have a fake/old receipt or something!

In the spirit of lifting, your best bet is to try to access a police vehicle. In the US most departments have a shotgun up front (locked) and sometimes an AR type rifle in the trunk. (Locked).

Every off-duty officer usually keeps weapons in their personal car. If you wait outside a station and tail a few officers to their homes... This is pure insanity of course but then again your asking for guns and explosives online...

I bought one and it’s hit or miss for me. I think I only successfully used it once, on the flat round ink tags at K0hl5. Got about 100 in clothes out of it so it paid for itself and then some!

Talk to me about credit card scams, I have the personal information of 4-5 people and want to open cards in each of their names. I’m not sure how to open accounts, use them online, etc. If you teach me, I’ll hook you up.

My Christmas miracle lift. A few days away from Christmas I was broke and due to falling on hard times had to pay bills instead of buying the kids gifts.

I went to T@rgat with a f- it attitude because I was desperate and ashamed that I failed my family. So I did a kamikaze mission, grabbed a cart, and proceeded to walk isle to isle filling the cart with everything from toys, electronics, clothes, even food for Christmas dinner.

With my head held high and zero fucks, I then walked out of the store and to the car, the cart was literally packed. I honestly didn’t care and I just went for it. A weird feeling, cause I felt no fear or hesitation.

To top it off, after shoveling everything in the trunk, I walked back into the store to self checkout, smiled at the clerk and told her my bag broke and asked if I could grab one... I of course grabbed 5 or 6. I parked a few blocks away and bagged the items. With the electronics, lego, etc, I estimated I grabbed well over 1000 that day.

I’ve never told my wife or anybody but it was my proudest and insane lift. I of course never went back..

They were my ‘go to’ for video games and blue rays. Over the course of 3-4 years and a dozen stores I liberated over 2 dozen games and a dozen or so blue rays sets.

With an S3 key I was in and out fast, but I knew my luck would run out. If their LP is as good as everyone says, they probably have a god tier profile on me and we’re waiting for the next time I grabbed 3 60 dollar games.

Glad I quit when I did.

Show me how to open the pataco turtle, commonly used at L0w3s and I’ll be impressed. A link to the correct magnet and I’ll be blown away!

I did a full cart walkout a few months ago and the last item I took was a rotisserie chicken. I even made sure to bag it separate in a paper bag (placed nicely next to the chickens). The minute the employees were distracted and no customers around I walked on out.

If I was you, I’d go big or go home. Instead of stressing over one chicken, fill up a cart or hand basket. It makes you look like your legitimately shopping and it’s worth your while.

I’m almost certain this channel is a parody. A gas station with its own website, Instagram, Twitter, and of course, YouTube with a million views per video.

The 1020p quality cameras and crack team of spec-ops cashiers are a dead giveaway. I wouldn’t be surprised if they hire locals to ‘lift’ then make their hilarious commentary while they edit each video.

Only thing to learn from these videos is making money on social media...from a gas station. I give them props though, it’s a good hustle.

I fuched up a lift at L0wes because I couldn’t get the green pataco alarm tags off, still researching that..

Anyways, I was so mad I went to m1chels and grabbed a 206 dollar cricket machine. They were stored in line near the register, so I wheeled up a cart, loaded one in, then wheeled it out entrance when no one was looking.

I can’t sell it to save my life! I thought they were popular damn it!

If you are in a place like Wally or T@rgat, go from electronics, to toys...to groceries. If some ‘random shopper’ follows you across the store, that’s a good giveaway.

Remember that they often work in teams, so there should be a couple obvious people that stand out. Walk around, shop, pick things up, set them down, watch their reactions.

Of course by that time you should know to abort mission, unless you are running interference for a partner 😉

T@rg@t used to be my ‘go to’ as far as video games. I could walk in, use an S3 key to grab 2 games out of the display cases and be out in 10 minutes or less.

My questions are, how does the electronics clerk or AP know the games are missing? I often see empty display cases when I go in and I wonder how long it takes for anyone to ask if they were sold or stolen?

Also, with empty video game display cases, when do you start watching video? How far back to you watch? When does case building start? Do you work with other stores nearby?

Do you print/post pictures of perps seen opening display cases with an S3? Lastly, how often does that happen?

Lol. Walk me through the process the second a clerk says “I put a game in the display case and now it’s gone but I never sold it?”

Research and Recon. Research starts by reading the wikis so generously provided by the fam here. There is a lot you can learn from other lifters, videos on YouTube, even from forums related to LP/AP. The security device manufacturers even have sites you can check out.

Recon is visiting the store(s) and checking the layout, staffing, blindspots, area of town, etc. I’ve noticed each store is always different, some don’t emphasize security as much as customer service. Learn what security devices they use and how to defeat them.

Lastly, know your own strengths and weaknesses. Can you do social engineering? Can you do slight of hand? Do you have the testicular fortitude to fill up a cart and walk out?
