This is true.while I worked at the store I saw many people getting a free ride and it wasn't to the Policeman ball! lol My son works for friends of ours and one of their stores was robbed at gun point,due to the cameras in the shop the armed robber was caught and he received a free ride downtown :) Oh how I love happy endings!

Believe me there is more theft going on,not just shoplifting,there is employee theft,bad checks,counterfeiting,short change artists,people faking injuries then suing.These are a few things I could think of,but I'm sure there is more.Cameras in the stores are not only watching for shop lifters,they are also watching their employees.When I was still working in retail there was always a camera above overhead watching everything we did.I had no problem with that at all it was kind of nice knowing you would not get accused of wrong doing when it was someone else doing it.The friends my son works for put cameras in their store at my suggestion,he was having problems with employee theft.He has no problems with that any longer.He even has a monitor at home to watch what is going on at all times.Most people are good and honest in nature,but there are some that are not,they spoil it for the rest of us.

Pretty clever sign, and hopefully people will pay attention!!  They use the same type of sign around here for a free ride home from any bar in town that you leave and get into a car to drive home while under the influence.  Unfortunately, a lot of people disregard this sign, and we have had some very disturbing fatal accidents involving drunk drivers on the wrong side of the road.  Two years ago, a whole family was wiped out.  How sad!  We stay home.....we have been lucky enough to wake up the next morning....some are not so lucky!

I like that sign. I wish everyone that shopliftes would get caught.
Maybe the price of things would go down then. Most of the things
people shoplift are not a necessary thing. I think they must get
a thrill of some kind at not getting caught.

We have a police substation in our mall!!  There are still a few with 1/2 a brain cell that think they can get away with the old 5 finger discount.

It is amazing how many people who do not need to shoplift since they have money to purchase things still do it. I am amazed at those I think are good and honest taking things that they do not pay for. What about the people who take items home from work, pens, pencils, paper clips, pads. Those who take sweetners, salt and pepper, etc from restaurants. A friend of mine took a bread basket from the table and I was amazed at how quickly it disappeared. I never saw it happen! How to stop these petty thefts???Cry

One of my cousins did something that just floored me.This took place back in the 70's she drove a brown ford pinto,someone took her gas cap.Not too much time had passed and I noticed her gas cap was back on her car,I said I see you bought another gas cap and she said " No I found a car just like mine and I took their gas cap" I never felt the same about her again.
