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

I think there is a reason they're called "Samples". I could be wrong, but i think its worthless. Cant be reset. They are made specifically for sample/demo purposes

Former LP here.

1st. You done messed up A-Aron

2nd. if LP has your "friends" stuff, then yes they can turn it over to PD and trespass you without you being there.

3rd. Trespassing is the least of your concerns.

4th. The act of running your car towards LP, whether you intended to hit them or not, is most likely aggravated attempted battery or assault, which is a felony in most states.

5th. Even though you did not participate in the theft, you can be charged with conspiracy because you knew that the theft was occurring and you chose not to do anything about it. Actually, you did quite the opposite. Conspiracy means they can charge YOU with everything your friend did as well and vice versa.

6th. It can take them a few days to file all these charges, especially if they're felonies.

7th. I had a similar situation happen. Lifter with a getaway driver that drove their car towards me, scared the shit outa me. As she was getting in she dropped her purse, containing her ID. I was PISSED as I thought I was going to get run over. I told the cops I wanted every single charge pressed against them. And they did. Multiple felonies.

8th. Kohls has a very similar camera system to what Target has. Which is very good. High definition cameras good. So the whole "they may not ID us from surveillance" scenario is probably not going to work in your favor.

9th. I would seriously get a lawyer

As former LP, yes we can detain you per state, and most states laws, with handcuffs, whether you like it or not. I worked for Target and they were hands on and i believe still are. Per our AP directive at the time we were allowed to use "The amount of physical force necessary in order to detain a suspect". I'm sure this has been amended slightly since then but probably not much. No ID? No problem, we'll let the cops sort that out. Stores I worked at prohibited us from searching, but if you failed to cough up the merchandise or provide ID, cops were being called 100% of the time. Also if the dollar amount was over $20, cops were getting called regardless.

IP cameras are High Definition, IP based (internet Protocol) cameras. Have more bells and whistles than your standard analog cameras. Can be monitoerd and recorded remotely. Target, Old Navy, Kohls, most walmarts, Dicks, and most malls and department stores have IP cameras now.

several ways really. First, we know that cops usually dont give a crap about low dollar stuff. SO what we would do is estanblish trends and patters with merchandise and known shoplifters. If we kept seeing a person in the store time and time again but they would never buy something, chances are somethings up. So then we would research video. See what we would find. We had reporting software were we could log and track various cases. Eventually we nail down a suspect and the various items they have taken along with the video evidence over days, weeks, month, etc. All that would go into a known theft suspect folder. Once they would reach that felony level, then police usually care more and put more effort into their investigations. So once its at or close to that felony level, we turn it over to police all while still collecting evidence and case building further. If we had plates, ID, or CC or Debit card info, we would turn that over right away so they can identify more quickly, whether or not it was at the felony level.

Keep in mind, walking out with 2 LARGE appliances is going to be a big red flag to anyone vigilant. Also how are you planning on loading up these large appliances? If you're going to be spending 5 minutes in the parking lot loading these up while cops have time to respond.........doesn't seem worth it to me IMO
