Now imagine yourself as a loss prevention employee and not some regular store level employee. Someone who is trained to watch for concealment, no matter what it gets concealed into. Trust me, if someone were to walk in with a pizza box, I'm gonna watch them as that is something that doesn't normally happen.

LOL. the 5 steps isnt a law. Its a "guideline". As former LP I can't tell you how many times I caught people on just 4 steps. If lifters are willing to break the rules, so is LP. It's just an unfortunate fact of the game.

They do this from time to time depending on the dollar amount and what agreement the seller has with amazon. Usually low dollar stuff.

If you used your card, most likely they may and try to case build against you. That's at least what I used to do and what my bosses had me do in these situations. They can put your card number into the surveillance system and instantly see every transaction and associated video that with with it.

Former alarm tech here. This is so much wrong with this.

  1. Telephone lines are rarely used now for security monitoring. Fire alarm, yes...security no. Most of these are cellular and internet
  2. Communicator Supervision - Most professionally installed system supervise the alarm communicator (device that transmits signals). If this device is tampered with, alarm will sound.
  3. Additional supervision - Most systems have Frequency Jamming supervision. Very common on Honeywell, DSC, Interlogix, DMP and Qolsys systems. If the system detects the frequency is being jammed, it will try to send a signal to the central alarm station, but even if it doesn't reach it, if the system is armed, it will go into alarm and make noise to let everyone within earshot that something is up.
  4. Clearly this is a thinly veilled attempt to bu these "Jammers" Which probably don't even work, and the site selling them was created in 2020 and very sketch.

Probably not a good idea IMO. Most schools, if not all have some sort of camera system and all have alarm systems which are monitored remotely. Most schools use Bosch alarm systems (ive installed several in schools and government buildings over the years). These usually only have a keypad that will beep when the alarm is triggered, so unless you're near it, you probably wont hear it and cops could already be on their way.

Most security systems have a battery backup. They also report when power is lost and when the battery is running low, so people will know that power has been cut and will send someone to restore it, usually before the battery backup runs out. I know this because ive installed and works on these systems. They are hard to beat.

All this basically says is they will still arrest you and then issue you a citation and court date. You basically wont spend the night in jail but you will still be charged.

There really arent any "Parts" on an iphone, except the battery and maybe the screen. Plus if you steal one the IMEI will be locked and phone wont be able to be used. You have an expensive paper weight instead. Also stealing them out of peoples hands isnt cool, do it from a store instead, but then again, they will just block the IMEI
