Target will one day cut back on three security. Walmart used to have good security like target and it saves money to make the cut, because security will only catch about 1 in 50 shoplifters even if they’re good.

just be very careful and treat it as if security is top notch. make a buster bag with either aluminum foil or faraday fabric. they both work just as well as each other so i choose the cheaper aluminum foil.

I really doubt they were into me. I did this at a time when I knew there was no one to watch the cameras, and in a location with no cameras visible. I took a GOOD look before and as I was bagging up. The lady saw me bypass the last point of sale with a full reusable bag and asked me to pay for it. It was full when I came in tho, and zipped up when I entered and attempted to leave.

Shoplifters use lots of methods. I showed you the one I use, the one your describing sounds like sleight of hand.

You should ask questions in r/lossprevention in reddit. Those guys will be happy to help you and you'll get a lot of answers in a short period of time compared to here. You work in a charity shop basically, and you need to protect it.

If you think you have a smart lifter who will dodge your cameras, my recommendation is to follow them on foot very carefully, unless you have no blind spots. Theyll use sleight of hand tricks to make you think they have dumped the item sometimes. But i haven't heard of that on this forum.

Staged items will be hidden in what the lifter thinks is a blind spot to cameras, or a low traffic area. They'll hide things either behind other items or under shelves in most cases.

If something doesn't look hidden its probably just an honest customer.

Tho most lifters are stupid and will load up right infront of the camera. They wont use this method.

little advice too. watch for staged items. thats about the most sophisticated and safest technique. put the item back if you see that. and ban the lifter from the store if your boss will let you. people who steal from a place like ross are scum, and you need to get them out of your store. Maybe even in jail depending on how much they have stolen.

Good tip. im really just worried about cams tho. Hidden ones that i cant see. I have only stolen wine so far and where i live police don't respond to petty theft like that. the store has to fill out an affidavit and go through a really complicated process so they just dont report it. lol
