Yeah there are always motion sensors and the fact that, upon exiting, just opening the door will trigger police response.

I’ve “heard” its easy to hide in certain stores, getting the goods and getting out would take a lot of research and prep though. Thank god for human laziness and ineptitude sometimes.

It took me 3 attempts before pulling off a successful walkout at bb&b. I either left a cart by the door like an idiot or put everything back.

When I finally did do it, i scored over 1k in merch so it was worth it! I might try again soon, something about that place is nerve wracking.

I moved out of state and kept my old license plates. During big lifts I’ll park a block or two away and switch my back plates. (Dont use front plates). After a successful op, ill once again drive a few blocks and switch them back.

If I ever got pulled over during that 2 block drive id tell the officer someone stole my plates and tags, I called the dmv and I put my old ones on so i at least had something.

If you can get ahold of some out of state plates or forge a temp sticker then I’d suggest doing that.

I’m not sure if anyone else ever uses this method but i always work solo and when in the store I’ll follow another shopper, walk next to them or close behind and even make small talk. That way if being observed by camera, they will think that person(s) and I are together.

I’ve also used employees as a cover, decoy, distraction. I’ve literally concealed merch while flirting with a female employee. Approaching an employee and asking for an item location and then following them makes you look legit and gives you time to conceal. Or just chatting with them about a movie, game, or their job might throw off an LP who is watching on camera.

Using people as props during your lift works well, believe it or not. You just need to manipulate them a bit and work up the courage.

I can only speak for my university store and it was 50/50. There are a lot of variables to consider.

  • Depending when you go (beginning of term or time of day). Sometimes they are crowded with students or bored staff milling around.

  • Some stores are small, not a lot of room to ‘work’.

  • Some make you leave your backpack by the door, meaning hiding a thick textbook might be tough, or are you just taking a soda?

  • If you’re caught, campus security might be involved and your college career might be at risk.

Weigh your options, assess the risk, a 200 dollar textbook sucks, especially for one years use, but if it’s doable, then it might be worth it.

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!
