They seized movies, video games, clothing, electronics, and even crayons, to name a few things.

They took forty crayons.

They took 40 crayons.

That's as many as four tens.

And that's terrible.

Both of the Targets in my area have anti theft gates at all the customer exit doors.

I wonder what method he used to get out of the store with a cart full of unpaid for merchandise.

Bathia_Mapes: I wonder what method he used to get out of the store with a cart full of unpaid for merchandise.


I was in a Kmart years ago and purchased a pallet load of goods. I walked from the front of the store to the rear of the store carrying one of the items after purchasing about 100 of them.

I was walking briskly through the storage space and did not see anybody verifying I had purchased my goods. If I were a dishonest person, I would have taken another pallet load.

Perhaps this guy was walking out the back door or a door that had a disabled alarm.

That's entirely possible. Or, since he used to be a Target employee, he used a door only employees have access to.

My spouse used to do loss prevention at the older local Target. She was absolutely, positively, forbidden from chasing people down. Someone tries to get out the door and doesn't stop? No chasing them down, someone might get hurt.

I also worked there briefly - not at the same time - in the stockroom. One day, I discovered a box that had a bunch of electronics in it, in a place it shouldn't have been in. After thinking about it the rest of my shift, I figured out how it was being used to steal stuff.

Being something of an idiot, and being fairly lawful in general, I reported this to the security team (since my manager could very well have been the one responsible for it in the first place). By the time I left two months later, jack shiat had been done about it.

Bathia_Mapes: That's entirely possible. Or, since he used to be a Target employee, he used a door only employees have access to.


The one I worked at didn't let the rank-and-file access via a door that bypassed the security gate. Yes, it was employee access only; no, it was still within the security gates.

I used to work at Target, but not in loss prevention. No, I had to clean the bathrooms, and that being the case, it wasn't hard to notice a couple of teenagers sneaking CDs into the stalls and unwrapping them to steal them from the store. Especially when they were talking to each other about it when they thought I was out of the bathroom.

I told loss prevention about it. They made a note of it.

Feeling kinda surly at teenagers in general at the time, I confronted them when they exited the bathroom -- calmly, not at all aggressively -- and suggested they return the CDs before they leave. I gave the opened CDs back to loss prevention.

They told my manager, and I got written up.

"Loss prevention" at Target, and most stores of that nature, is a complete misnomer. Their job is to record and monitor thefts, and then let the police do the actual prevention and apprehension. Despite the professional-looking uniforms and badges and, yes, even handguns they wear, they won't stop anybody from shoplifting anything. It's simply not in their job description.

Is there some method that would allow an employee to override/turn off the alarm on the anti theft gates? Because, at this point, that's the only thing I can think of. Or maybe a current employee was in cahoots with him, maybe deactivating security tags & the like so the alarm wouldn't trigger. Is that a possibility?

That's absolutely a possibility; of course, they could also have a completely different setup than we do here.

I'm really surprised it doesn't happen more often, what with all the 'don't confront shoplifters' policies all major stores seem to have.

And, of course, they factor 'shrink' into the price of the goods they sell.

What might be interesting is a speculative fiction story where companies get their prices, shelf tags, sales signs, etc. all completely computerized, and a back-end system that adjusts prices in Real Time. The protagonist goes into a store for an item, sees other people literally walking out the door with the same item, reports them, gets told the employees can't do anything about theft (except call the cops, who are all busy writing parking/speeding/etc tickets), and then has to pay more at the register to make up for the ones that were just stolen. All while the thieves get off scot free.

All the kitchen staff was standing around on the loading dock by the freezer.
A Merciless Benz backs up, guy in a suit gets out and starts removing cases of food items from the freezer and into the cars trunk.
Gets back in and takes off.

Mgmt was all upset. I pointed out that #1) it 100deg in the kitchen- the minimum wage staff is dead beat, doesn't speak english and doesn't want to confront a white man in a suit.

Thief was a restaurant consultant got hired and immediately began to destroy the clientele and all established business BUT he stopped the thefts. facepalm

Not surprising -- I never worked at Target but I worked at a chain bookstore (not Borders, if you're wondering) where people stole stuff constantly. You could stop people if they set the buzzer off and look through their bags but if they just kept on walking and ignored you there was nothing you could do. Basically all a thief had to do was ignore you and they were home free. Another problem with the security gates was that there were a lot of false alarms, for example, people wearing coats or other clothing where they'd never cut the security tags out.

I know a current LP at a Target. There are apparently tiers of LP officers. The lowest tier is pretty much restricted to "Sir/Ma'am, can you please stop?" while the highest tier actually CAN apprehend. The middle tier can apprehend in the store, but not in the parking lot (whereas the highest tier can so long as it doesn't get to the vehicle).

It's basically a clusterfark of liability. After hearing how that particular Target does it, and knowing that there's only 1 (maybe 2) who are high enough to actually use physical force to apprehend, as long as you run for it and they don't catch you or write down your plate, you're home free.

While I worked at Target, one of our neighboring stores had a group of guys come in, grab carts, go to the electronics section, grab the display TVs and walk right out.

Perhaps, but sometimes stores neglect to deactivate or remove security tags. I had this happen to me about 5 years ago after I bought a wallet from Target. This particular store had two main exits. One that led to the parking lot, the other to the shopping mall. I used the latter exit & the alarm on the anti theft gate triggered. A clerk came over, I showed her my receipt & she told me to go on through to the mall. About a week later I was back at the mall and when I walked through the anti theft gates into Target, the alarm went off. Another clerks walks over, I tell her I haven't purchased anything yet, not even from any of the other stores. We're both puzzled, but since I obviously was entering, not leaving the store & had no merchandise, there's nothing security could do.

About two months later I was cleaning out my wallet, pulling out old receipts & the like & found a small magnetized card in an unused portion of the wallet. Apparently it was caused the alarm to trigger everytime I entered or left Target.

That's clever as hell, but the receipt ain't how they get ya. It's the eye in the sky ya gotta watch out for. Tape showing first purchase and attempted theft... bam! Nailed. Tell your "buddy" not to use a credit card.

Works in just about any large store. As a matter of corporate-wide policy for most retail chains, nobody in the store is supposed to actually DO anything to stop a person, save call security or the police. Since a lot of stores may not have active LP at all times, and I'm sure the local PD will come RUSHING if they hear that there's some horrible criminal with the gall to steal a CANDY BAR from the store... just keep walking, they won't do anything to you save ban you from entering the store (maybe).

A few years ago I kept setting off those alarms in stores, (and getting waved through) and finally in one of them I got fed up and after some experimentation (hold my coat in the field, OK, it's something in the coat..) figured out that it was the tag on the storage packet for a pair of clip-on sunglasses that cost maybe $10..

I have a purse that I totally paid for that seems to set off those security gates at some stores. For example, the alarm will sound at CVS but not Target. Go figure.

Used to happen at the store I used to work for all the time.

Not a big deal.

75 year old greeter once chased someone out and the guy threatened to stab her.

Usually what we would do is follow you out and write down your license plate.

Someone once stole a large TV and could not get it into his car. The box would not fit. So I just stood there and wrote down the plate. He had to take it out of the box to get it into his car and I wonder if he noticed me laughing at him. The police caught him a short time later.

geoduck42: A few years ago I kept setting off those alarms in stores...


I got sick of no one reacting whether it was a false alarm or not. So now I just keep walking. Don't even break stride. Don't let them check my bag or receipt on the way out either. Ain't got time for that.

Was in a store a while back when a hot chick walked out ahead of me and set off a false alarm. She turned around and had a panicked look on her face. Again without breaking stride, I leaned toward her as I walked by and quietly said 'run for it!'. She broke into a big smile and eventually walked out.

Yep. Had a problem when I was still living in Springfield, Oregon. If I checked out books or movies from the public library then went to the Fred Meyer store afterwards, their security alarm would go off when I entered the store. Didn't happen at any other stores. I was told by Fred Meyer security that there was a possibilty that the security gates at both the library and Fred Meyer were set at the same frequencies.

Back when I worked at Target (not loss prevention) the people in uniform guarding the door couldn't do anything to actually stop theft except scare kids into leaving the stuff behind. Their bosses could detain thieves, for a long time their bosses only worked the day shift.
 
2011-10-28 02:00:08 AM
I despise thieves normally. But Target shoplifters are known to donate 10% of their profits to worthy local causes that benefit our communities.

They're a slightly classier variety of crimal than what Wal Mart has to offer.
 
2011-10-28 02:01:26 AM
I was in a Target several years back minding my own business, shoplifting the old fashioned way, when a guy in a banana suit came running through yelling "Help! Help! He's going to eat me!" Shortly followed by a guy in a gorilla suit.
They ran the length of the whole store and the fat, stunned "security" guards were so comical in their pursuit, that they were near me at the front of the store running further into it as the guys ran out the door practically right behind them... one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
True gorilla theater bro.

Walked out the gates. Those rentacops are about fifteen steps below the dregs I used to work for. When I was fresh out of Disney loss prevention and my eye was still good for shoplifters, I used to go through Target and see if I could spot the thieves. There were always at least three or four on any given day, but the "Target loss prevention" never saw them, or if they did, never bothered to stop them.

If your store security doesn't have authority to stop & detain--or if your company hasn't got the balls to exercise their perfectly legal "shopkeeper's privilege"--you may as well not even have security, and just accept stock shrinkage as part of your annual lost profit.

used to work in home center--we locked the floor cleaners in one night, and when my manager let them out, the alarm kept going off--he finally "bumps" into one of the persons and felt something hard---turned out when we left, the lady takes her dress off and starts taping over a thousand dollars worth of merchandise to her---a router bit had a tag on the back---and thats how it went off.

was meeting with manager later that day and he is explaining all the details, and had a list of all items stolen----i asked him if he included the tape they took to wrap this stuff up---he pulls out the paperwork, and added all the tape they took.

*snerk*

I laugh at your misfortune cause the exact same thing happened to me with 2 main differences.

1. The little hidden security card set off EVERY alarm, not just at one store. Groceries, hardware, the mall...I couldn't go into half the buildings in town.
2. This went on for almost 6 months. At first it was funny, then annoying, then downright infuriating. I never did make the connection until - like you - I was cleaning out my wallet and there it was.

I had a friend that every month, almost like clockwork, would go to Wal-Mart, pick up a receipt off the ground in the parking lot, walk in, grab everything on the receipt from the shelves, then take it to customer service and return it for cash. He explained to me that if you avoid big ticket items and stick to the groceries and things without unique S/N's they wouldn't be able to tell if it was already sold or not. And he rotated stores around the city (Memphis). Never got caught to my knowledge, claims to have made more than $100k doin it.

I used to work at Target 20 years ago. It's amazing some of the stuff they steal.

2 days after Christmas a 9-yr-old kid tried to get out of there with $100 in baseball cards. He had $150 in his wallet and his well-dressed dad (who looked like a doctor or some pretty well-to-do person) was pissed. Mom just stared daggers into her son.

Then there was the time two women (mom/daughter) did the "stuff the two carts and run" but security (and 12 employees) put a stop to that. They offered the security guy $20 to forget the who thing (they had $2500 in VCRs, tapes, walkmans, and other early-90s electronic wizardy) but he kindly turned them down. Then they offered...themselves...did I mention this was a mom/daughter team?

Then there was the pregnant woman trying to get out the door with a couple of cameras she didn't pay for. I stumbled on the security guy struggling with her after I pulled carts in the lot. She kicked me in the groin as we put her in the security room.

Good times...good times...

One way of looking at that is that Target could give a shiat about the $0.53 all those CDs cost them wholesale, but they'd be really cheesed at having to settle with your estate's lawyers for seven figures when the teenage punks accidentally broke your neck trying to escape Target justice. Not very satisfying, but it makes sense from the corporate perspective.

I'm surprised the Target cops have guns. I'd bet anything they're not loaded, or that they're under orders never to use them in anything less than a terrorists-invade-Target-and-Jean-Claude-Van-Damme-who-is-shopping-for -a-Christmas-present-for-his-niece-is-pinned-down-in-sporting-goods-an d-needs-you-to-lay-down-covering-fire-so-he-can-get-to-the-air-rifles kind of situation.

The retail store I worked for before I got a real job did a study on automated checkouts. The study showed that there was an increase in theft that became essentially unpreventable with automated checkouts. But ultimately the company was ok with that, because they would save more money than what was stolen by eliminating the cashiers positions.

I didn't see what happened, but all the workers were running around telling each other that a Large Flat Screen TV was stolen.How did he get it out? The guy dressed up as a repairman, walked in, loaded it up and walked out. No one stopped him because everyone thought someone else had authorized him, after all, he had a name tag.

So everybody just watched him steal it. Guy had brass balls.

No matter where I work, this is the trend. Don't sneak. Don't hide. Don't run. Dress the part, wear a nametag, and act like you have every damned right to do precisely what your doing and no one will be the wiser. I used to work at themeparks over the summer so off duty people would come in through the back gates to see their friends sometimes, or give them "unofficial tours" or what not. If you act like you know what your doing 99 times out of a 100 no one is going to say a single word to you.

I knew a women (new window) who did the exact same thing and got away with it repeatedly. She would fill her cart with TVs, laptops, game consoles, other expensive shiat, and just ran out the door. Her big mistake was doing it at the same Walmart three times in three days .

Gah, this thread is making me depressed.

No incentive left in this country to be honest, is there?

Another reason they don't care so much about theft is that most of the real loss comes from employees. Why chase down someone dangerous when you can catch a bigger fish and you already have his home address on file?
