So he jacked some TVs? Probably going to sell them on the black market?

His big brass balls must have been growing daily and started slowing him down.......

FTA: A telephone listing in his name was not in service.....

He needed the cash to pay his phone bill.

Look into his eyes and it's easy to see, one and one make two, two and one make three, it was destiny.

You know the way it was submitted, it sounded like he had some cool method to get these TVs.

I worked at a K-Mart in the Electronics department during the Christmas in the 80's, it was amazing what people would try to get away with. I had a guy leap over the counter and grab a boom box
and then he took off running through the store with a security guard in hot pursuit. The thief ran into the toy department and slid the boom-box onto a shelf while simultaneously standing up and acting for all the world like he was interested in the toys in front of him. The guard confronted him and the guy immediately began screaming racism because he had planned to pay for that item.
When asked why did he grab the unit, the guy said we were busy and since he was in a hurry he just grabbed the unit he wanted and planned to pay for it up front....

I once unscrewed a Kenwood car amp off the Circuit City wall and put it down my baggy pants and was somewhat concealed it with my sweatshirt and walked right out the door. I got away with it and the people working 2 weeks later were telling my friend of a story of how, and applauded the balls on "someone" to preform such an act. I was pretty good. Also stole a couple cars but never sold them, they were returned.

This isn't the greatest robbery in the world. This is a tribute to the greatest robbery in the world.

ever.

Clearly if the store staff was armed, this would never have happened.

If only he'd stopped at 4.

Greed is bad.

/should've stopped after 1

Sorry, I was actually going for something different in that post. I guess nobody noticed. Oh well, I'll do better next time.

That kind of stuff happens all the time at Walmarts and Targets.

My sister's boyfriend is a uniformed supervisor for Target's Loss Prevention services. His department deals with "push outs" on a daily basis. That's when folks fill up a cart with items and nonchalantly try to run out of the store with it with a vehicle waiting outside to get away. Or they try to push thousands of dollars of electronics, like those big screen TVs.
It's usually organized gangs of people that do this in a geographic area. They may "get away" with it a few times, but that's only because these people are stupid enough to do it several times either in the same store, or in several localized locations. The LP people are just waiting to collect enough evidence on these thieves by coordinating with other locations or even local non-chain stores so they can catch the perp and nail him or her with grand larceny charges.
I used to work in a small store in a busy mall in my area and we had 2 different groups of people from the same gang come thru our mall, hit up several stores, and within less than an hour, they boosted tens of thousands of dollars of stuff. From my store alone we had whole stacks of shirts and pants swiped off our front tables. We got our product back, thank goodness, but it was the mall security folks who had been on the lookout for these people for a while. They'd been doing this in a lot of area malls and the cops and security guys were just waiting for them to show up. Once all these dumbasses were arrested, we had a significant drop in theft and no-receipt fraudulent returns because apparently a lot of our losses were coming from this solitary group of individuals that were all rotting away in jail. Our theft number dropped significantly after that.

Came in to post something similar. I actually WAS a Target Loss Prevention Specialist (Sr. TPS for those who know the lingo). These kinds of things happen more often than you realize. People will come in and case the store and wait for whoever is standing at the door to go on break or have to deal w/another issue and walk right out the door. Often you don't realize it until a day or two later unless that particular item is one that receives a daily inventory count and then you have to go back and review the footage and by that time they have stolen two or three. Often local pawn shops are involved (one music store in Baltimore City has a list of items they want that is kept in a conspicuous place on the wall of a manager's office. People are brought back when they have multiple CDs or DVDs to sell and while the employee never specifically mentions the list they make it clear that those items are what get the most money. Within a few days all the big box stores in the area are seeing a run on those items) and it is decided to see how far the theft ring goes (inter-store communication tells us if other stores in the company are being hit, we shared video and still photos. Other companies often have a gentlemen's agreement to share intel as well, like we did with the Wal-Mart on the other side of the mall).

The comment upthread about the K-Mart situation is why we never stopped someone w/a cart full of merchandise until they passed all points of sale. And if they are armed you let them go and do not confront them at all (and when they come back you immediately call the local PD to make the apprehension).

/end not so cool story, bro
