one time i had a bad stop at a dicks sporting goods. i was staging like 400-500 dollar golf clubs inside fold-up camping chairs, purchasing the chairs and then returning the chairs. that particular day, i got ran up on in the parking lot but i had no merchandise on me, so i obviously just left despite having a encounter with management/lp. later that evening, a police officer shows up at my house because obvs they took my license plate number. i asked for proof, he didnt have any, so i told him to leave and he did. nothing ever came of it. i called the store a few days later, pretended to have lost my wallet in the aisle where i knew a golf club (still tagged) was and instantly revealed myself and talked a lot of shit. lol.... point being, sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. they have to follow certain protocols. even the police do.

i wouldnt have gone back in tbh.

I heard Australia is a free for all when it comes to retail goods especially clothes. You have nothing to worry about. You have to think about when do they notice the theft. 150 at a supermarket really isnt that much... getting over your own paranoia is a major key in becoming a successful shoplifter.

I had a police officer come to my house one time after I had a encounter with a over zealous employee at dicks sporting goods. I detagging golf clubs, stashing them, and coming back later to retrieve them and on one instance I picked up a tail. I obviously didnt have anything so I kinda split but pointed out the obvious and even mentioned it to the employee I dont have anything blah blah blah... So later that evening I get a vist. Obviously the employee took down my license plate and the cop came and said they had me on camera stealing. They didnt and I knew it so I asked him to leave. The cop left and I didnt get arrested. So moral of story no. Cops will lie as this one did but you dont have to go nowhere especially if it is after the fact.

worse comes to worse, you ditch the merchandise and split but like drshoplifter said you need to make the commitment to make it out no matter what. if you get locked in what are you going to do?? at least you can flee if you make it outside and the chances of them getting you decreases the farther you get away obviously. it probably aint even worth the merchandise you got so just remember next time..

there is no one way as every method is essentially situational especially with shoplifting. sometimes a bag helps and nowadays the use of reusable bags is not uncommon so use that to your advantage. walmart has started making bags that clip onto the shopping cart that allows you to put goods into and i know most grocery stores have bags that are sectioned off for carrying out bottles of wine so use these things to your advantage as well.

im thinking, going in at night, unlocking the case and either taking it then and there or staging it and sending someone in later. it would be a complete burn so i would just take what i wanted and clear it out + wear a disguise of some sort. you can unlock these cylinder locks with a tool that is used to create copies of the internal pins of the lock, im figuring these stores are going to use the same lock and the same keys (i have noticed the same numbered lock at different stores). i think speed would be the issue here and how fast you could these slider cases open. i always check them when im instore and have found them unlocked before so its very possible.
