I feel like you'll get your picture on the news for lifting these. I just googled a little bit, using search terms like " <local grocery chain> Kitchen Aid Mixer" and "Home Goods <town> Kitchen Aid Mixer" and a ton of results from local news channels popped up like HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PERSON with their photo and everything. That shit makes me so nervous. : (

You got made and are lucky they didn't do anything beyond that. You're good for now, but I wouldn't go to this location or any location in this district/the surrounding area for awhile.

The REI nearest me seemed to have really intense camera coverage, and towers by the bathroom. Always lots of employees floating around too.

I've never lifted anything big, just small concealables that weren't tagged.

Did the return scam once but I'm not familiar enough with these stores to feel comfortable lifting anything of value in person.

Do they watch the cameras, does anyone know?

What happened? Were you just concealing at a really bad time when someone was walking by? I can't even tell you how much I've lifted from HL over the years. My friend's wedding decor was probably comprised of 80% free shit from HL. Absolutely one of the easiest stores, and I can't imagine how someone would get caught there if they're being careful. I mean, it happens...I always keep an eye on where employees and cameras are.
