It's a 15.99 knife, so it's not that big of a deal for them I assume. And it's not a Home Depot, it's a smaller chain, which I will avoid saying the name of for security reasons--but it's really funny because they don't have a scanner at the back entrance, where people from the mall walk in, but they do at the front of the store. Flawless design.

I like the knife a lot too. It's very sharp, looks like POWER, and isn't cheap. It closes fine if you know how to use a liner lock, but the only problem I have with it is opening it. I suppose liner locks aren't the type of knives to be a quick draw, but yeeah opening it isn't its best feature.

If they haven't recognized you in months you're probably safe. I wouldn't suggest going back to normal appearance for a couple of months. Right now, the only chances of you being caught are A. if you hand over your ID to purchase something and they recognize it as you, or B. if you're caught lifting again and the police ID you.

They're probably still going to care if they find out it's you. Purchasing something alongside stolen goods is a common tactic that lifters use, even if you didn't do that yourself. They handed you a permanent ban and I'm pretty sure that it can be upgraded to criminal trespassing or burglary if you're caught.

Just don't be stupid. Best of luck and happy lifting.

In my opinion it's safe if you remove all data that can be linked back to you including the EXIF data and any serial numbers that can be linked back to you. There is a very slim chance that the manager of the store you lifted at is going to just so happen to stumble across this exact forum, randomly click on a post and find that that's the exact items that went missing from their store. I'm willing to take my chances. But kids, just remember! Scrub your images before posting.

"So please, for your own safety, don't make haul posts." You have good reasoning to back yourself up, but this is a forum of 300 people. I am going to be very surprised if I can find someone of the same state on this forum, let alone the manager of a store I've visited.

Perhaps if we put instructions on how to remove EXIF data and look for traceable serial numbers we should be good.

They won't be looking out for you. Trust me, they're not going to be on the look out for anyone of your exact description, it would be too much work. You're only going to get in trouble if you're caught stealing or doing some illegal shit in the mall and the cops come.

Real nice. Wait but how did you steal a cooked chicken & it's still edible

or did you cook it

Fuck it, here's a protip: You can insert your link into the "URL" column when you submit and it's an easier way for people to access images

According to the Shoplifting Guide, they're not supposed to leave customers alone with merchandise, which explains why they are watching you.

If you take the gator tag off and are certain there's no other hidden tags anywhere, then you're golden. Take gator tag off, search for hidden tags, dispose of all tags and get out. It's probably not that easy though, so be aware of LP and dressing room counters, if you're going to take the dressing room method.

Also be aware that if you set off the alarms, employees cannot stop you just for the alarm. They may say come back but ignore them. The only way they can stop you is if they saw you conceal or steal, so be smart.

Best of luck and happy lifting!

Wrap a rubber band around the pin several times and keep twisting it off. If that doesn't work take 2 pliers, put them on each end of the tag and bend downwards. Pin should pop right off.
