why you go back? why not another apple store for phone repair? Also you can easily played it off, oh last week i wasnt hear, you can easily make lies to throw him off. And say "im going to somewhere for better service and just leave the store",

Depends on which targets, super targets are generally newly built so have much higher end security equipment with more lp on the floor. in addition these targets will have at leas 1-2 lps patrolling the stores, not neccesarily the whole store continuously for the shifts, they may concentrate in an area, like if there is a back entrance, with self-checkout they will most likely be there, but be aware that they can patrol and suddenly show up in the aisles your in. Also take note that they will have a lp stationed at a security camera monitor(that lets you see 9-12 cameras at once, and yes their cameras are PTZ, and is able to track you throughout the store, i have caught a glimpse of those monitors as i was leaving and multiple times i always see it zoom in, enlarge, track me or someone throughout the store. Also the security monitor can just zero in one person at a time, like the whole screen is just one camera so they can see the shoplifter in greater detail. for these LP that are stationed at a podium, the target will move them around the store, hidden in certain areas so would-be shoplifters cant tell where they are all the time. Sometimes podiums are unattended.

Alot of times target will not be guarding thier front entrances at these stores, especially if its not really busy, you still cant be complacent. The smaller targets are usually super targets. but the full-sized mall ones or standalone ones are usually renovated into a supertarget, if not all of them already. I used to go for Mall targets because multiple entrances actually prevents lp from covering the store effectively. Some people will say the busier the store the more lp will be monitoring the floor, its probably true, but its also less likely they will notice you as well.

targets with multiple levels and entrances attached to indoor mall is probably the best place to lift stuff.

the best time to go is at the beginning of the semesters, where they will be tons of people buying books and stuff so i would imagine it would be a good time to steal if you can, or if you cant afford books just take a picture of each page, i know its annoying but its better than paying hundreds for a book you will only use a semester. they have higher end electronics like laptops, tvs, or apple products but those are usually secured like in apple store.

for books you might want to try finding the pdf versions if there is any online, or on torrent sites.

i agree they throw away most of the food anyways, whole food does donate, but i dont know how much and if they do, i often seen most of thier products never get bought and they always restock with the newest ones, very quickly. of course i know they try to avoid lawsuits if they made some someone sick from eating thier food.

some people think you are fabricating, because of how overdramatic your description of the event is. if you just got a slap on the wrist, take it as a blessing you dint get charged, if i dint get charged i wouldve continued lifting, and used this an experience that i can avoid in the future. I got caught at target in early 2000s but i stole about a week later from another large chain and got caught again, but wasnt charged. at target i was arrested, because i got greedy and decided to help myself to same kind of items, also i wouldve gotten a slap on the wrist if my parents knew where i was and i wouldve gotten picked up, well i dint stop lifting from target however, because i thought it was unfair that they stopped me and dint stop a black or white male, who also activated the security towers. Supertargets are probably the ones you want to avoid, the newly built ones. The older targets with a mall or multiple mall entrances are probably the best one to steal. whats wierd is that you brought everything you stole from your house, i wouldve denied all those previous things, they can still literally charge you with more stuff.

depends on which targets, SUper-targets which are the brand news ones or recently renovated to include supermarket items like produce have upgrading security devices and more lp to watch ppl. Also high shrink areas encourages lp to follow, as i notice at an open mall they have lp patrolling the stores, in addition they usually have well place security cam podium where 1 lp just watches the cameras.

i was confused why did op decide to go back almost immediately stealing, once you steal from a store, dont come back for at least a week, more if you stole merchandise that are in excess of several hundred. even if they were watching you they cant do anything, unless you went back to the premises to steal more.

fatpacks are just to noticible to be stolen, i would stick to booster packs, 2 methods, either walkout and cause the towers to beep. or you can find a blindspot and try to open the packs physically, of course this is noisey and cumbersome, this is a surefire way to know if the packs are source tag, or bring an aluminim foil bag lining your pockets or reusable.

i have tempted fat packs, but they are very bulky, awkward and cumbersome. i think you should stick to booster packs. the problem now is that these new booster packs are source tag with rfid, so its impossible to feel the packs for the security tags like with the magnetic strips. unless you want to use an aluminum foil, your running the risk of activating the towers. at my mall target i used to go to had 2 levels, with mall entrances, there is one of the entrance where i can slip out in between the towers. at walmart the trading cards packs are usually on one aisle/at the front registers.

i actually was surprised they started source tagging alot of them, in the 2009, up until that time they never tagged it even once, and i was able to lift like no tommorow. the new booster packs with the new design are the ones usually source tagged though. for yugioh and mtg, i used to open the packaging in a blindspot and put it in my pocket, pokemon tgc have the same packaging, and its randomly source tagged. mind you this was from a notorious target i always lift from, in my opinion the mall targets were the easiest.

buying something usually brings down the suspicion of any employee, or lp, but not always. if you are walking out with a large amount of items like we see on youtube, your gonna be noticed by the lp, or they will contact the pd to say "this person stole x amount of goods, be on the look out". if its like small items its possible, but if your items have security devices i would not tempt that.

i have medi-caid version in the states, and one appointment took like 2.5months to get, its not as bad as uk, but its pretty bad if you got a unknown progressive symptom to wait that long, even if you get to the appointment, you can easily wait 4+hours for an interning doctor/doctor to see you.

looks like your lifting on impulse and opportunity. impulse is a literally wierd, it will cloud your judgment and cause mistakes. if you are planning to lift, scope out stores first, look for LP and blindspot placements, also be aware of cameras an any person suspicious following you.

what are you looking for, to lift large amount of stuff. You can actually get into the store without a membership, by claiming return, cant find someone you were with in the store,,,,etc. I have stolen there and got caught once in there(as a teen). It might involve you buying something, buy something where you can hide small items in, like otc meds, scissors or batteries.

if you meant prescription drugs, they would need your insurance card, ID, and you cant literally go behind the pharmacy counter without the employee knowing. you also wouldnt know which drugs are which since your not a pharmacist or pharmacy tech.
