Okay, I think the Tide Pod Challenge has gotten out of hand.

I guess they had to find the one thing that didn't come out in the wash

Put on my running shoes
And I filled up a cart
In a store in the land of the delta blues
Because shoplifting is my art

Dollar Gen'ral
Won't you just let me thieve
Yeah I've grabbed up some detergent
But I'm dirty as a boy can be

Now I'm running in Memphis
I'm running with all these police on my heels
Running in Memphis
But do I really steal the way I steal

This is going to be for a prank, and probably a public one

Maybe if Dollar General put more than two employees in a store for a shift, they would have less shoplifting. But keeping employees overwhelmed and underpaid is DG's bread and butter.

So stealing laundry detergent is a thing again? Years ago they busted a guy here with his garage full of what he stole from stores and a wad of cash. He was selling it at swap meets and doing pretty well for himself.

It's a perfect fungible good. You can tell if it's been diluted, it doesn't spoil, and has no serial numbers. Plus, it gets used up.

800 Street value? At 5/kg that's still 160 boxes. How? In their pants?

Actually, well known brands, and in particular, Tide, are very marketable commodities. Tide is a well known target for professional shoplifters, because it's very easy to sell.

Now i picture a guy in a trenchcoat on a corner going "Psst. Want to buy laundry soap? I got the good stuff." Like a cartoon drug deal.

In the late '10s you could buy drugs from the dealer on 5th between Spring and Main in downtown LA with Tide. He's probably still there

Lots of BBQ sauce to get out of clothes after Memphis in May.

It was a good money making venture for the guy IIRC, he and an accomplice would walk into a grocery store with a couple carts, load them up with Tide (it was his favorite to swipe) and just walk out. He would sell it at flea markets for about 50% of the store price and still made out.

In the time it took that "crime" to transpire, American bosses stole an incalculable number of dollars in wages from their employees.
Millions are stolen every day, while the 1% owned media wanks and blares about shoplifting.
Steal more.

Baby formula was a hot item too, when the stores had it.
