If I were to start stealing things from stores to save money, how would I go about it? Related question: If I were to begin selling things I stole from stores, how would I go about it?

Stealing stuff to sell, dumb idea. Why not just cut out the middle man and rob a bank and go straight to jail. Free place to live, free meals, education, gym and more gay sex you could even imagine.

Take shit from supermarkets. Walmart is fucking easy if you know what you're doing. Kmart can be pretty brutal, and is the only place I've ever gotten caught.

Try going around 1 AM, no one watches the cameras that time. The only thing you have to worry about is the greeter catching you, and usually they'll either not be paying attention or not even fucking be there at that time of night.

Dress nondescript. If you wear a hooded jacket don't have the hood up. Wear loose jeans but not too baggy. You may want a jacket that covers your back pockets so you can stick shit like toothbrushes and whatnot in your back pocket, but don't make it too large. The point is to make it NOT look like a thief.

Try to stick to smaller things. Kool-Aid packets, maybe a DVD if your pocket is big enough.

Go to the bathroom and quietly remove all the packaging, carrying a pocket knife or a razor blade can help tremendously. Flush fucking everything. You don't want to run the risk of setting off the security alarm.

In the event that you DO forget a security device, your best bet is to just keep walking. Greeters aren't allowed to leave the store. If it looks like a cop or security guy is coming after you, though, stick around. Try and bullshit them about forgetting you had it or something. They WILL take you to court over it but if you haven't left the building it's TECHNICALLY not illegal, assuming you haven't mutilated the product of course.

One neat trick you can successfully pull off during the day is try on a jacket or hat, and just go to another part of the store. Make sure there's no security devices, as usual. Don't remove the tags but try to tuck them in somewhere. Wander around for a bit, then leave out the opposite door from where you entered. The different greeter won't have seen you walk in and so won't recognize you, and therefore won't realize you're leaving with clothes you didn't enter with. And if they DO catch you you can just claim you forgot you were still wearing it from trying it on or goofing off or whatever.

Finally and most importantly, do NOT go into a store you're unfamiliar with to try and take things. Come in every couple of days and get used to the layout, and keep an eye out for camera placement. Most of Walmart's camera domes are fake and chances are there won't be anyone watching anyway, but better safe than sorry. NEVER linger around, do NOT pick something up and put it back down only to pick it back up repeatedly. If you see something you want and are unsure about it, pass it up and evaluate it elsewhere. Nothing is more suspicious than looking suspicious.

Good luck.

This is what I used to do when I didn't fancy paying for a litre bottle of vodka or whatever.

Go into a supermarket, the bigger and busier the better. Pick up my bottle of vodka (they used to cost about £10 then in the UK), select a cheap sandwich or something at the same time and casually walk up to the till and place the sandwich on the counter whilst still holding the bottle (making no attempt to conceal it).

Nearly every time, the shop assistant doesn't even bother to look at you and you pay for your sandwich and walk out whilst still holding your bottle.

This is the important part.

Make sure that you have enough money on you to pay for the stolen item because on the rare occasion that someone would question me, I'd just apologise profusely and make some shitty joke about 'forgetting my head if it wasn't screwed on' and then pay for the vodka as normal.

I have done this dozens of times and probably only had to pay for the bottle 2 or 3 times.

Don't do this if you are of a nervous disposition or can't feign confidence easily.

I'm not saying that this is a foolproof plan or even a good idea but it used to work well for me.

Some of the older Kmarts only have the giant dome cameras and those can be easy to avoid. They often use the white eas tags that they stick to the outside of merchandise and can be peeled off.

We used to use Lizzie bags to steal from high end department stores. Stealing sunglasses is huge if you can find a safe place. We used to rack shit at Oakley because my friend stole a key from behind the counter. You can also steal maxi-shears or similar wire cutters to cut off security devices. Leather can be a big score and once you've cut it away, just wear it the fuck out. Now you can go sell it or find another retailer that carries it, return it for store credit and you just bought some new gear. REIand the like have highend gear that rarely goes on sale. Look on their site and elsewhere to find compact items of high value and use the Lizzie bag method, though if you pocket it and buy some other trivial thing you can just leave and not stop when it goes off, later you can return the thing you bought with a reciept for your money back at another rei.

Food should just be walked out. Bring one of those reusable bags and fill that shit, but be quick about how you leave - don't take the beer run route straight from the back to the door. Walk behind some cashiers le you just left a line. Only do that at busy times.

Sell on craigslist sometimes, but diversify and use other sites like Amazon or eBay when selling a consistent product like "outdoor apparel"

Remember, almost all places have a policy that will keep a security guard from touching you but they can follow you if they feel safe (some will to be heros even if you could stab hm). You need to have an exit strategy that allows you to get out in 2 ways, so plan ahead and park our car facing the best way out where traffic won't be an issue, but also know the area so you can dip out in a non-obvious direction and call a friend or a cab.

Their is so much I cold learn you son, but my racking days are done.

Steal food, expensive food like meat and cheese, it is easy to sell for half price and you get a decent meal that day too. Put carrier bags in your shopping basket and as you walk round fill the bags with steaks n stuff, at a opportune moment take the bags and walk out. Do not be scruffy/dirty. Do not go anywhere near the alcohol shelves. Make sure store is as busy as possible. If you think they are onto you go put everything back and leave.

Yes, hold a TV remote up to a webcam and press a button. The little thingy will flash, and even though your pitiful human eyes can't see it, the advanced photonics of the camera will.

I have stolen over I'd say $500-$1000 in items from Wal-Mart every year for the past 4 years. (Only 19) Ask me anything

Modern Mom 13/12/13(Fri)22:05 No. 1792 ID: 740f9c

If they do this and they ask you if you "want to come with us" you say "no thank you" and walk away. Ditch the items where they can't see you if possible. They do this to you in the store which means if you do have something on you, it's not stolen (since you're in a store). They *ask* you if you want to go with them because then you admit you're willing if you say yes to that question and they make you think you have to go with them. Legally, they can't just hold you in a small room against your will. I think security can keep you in the store while they get actual authorities, but they can't hold you against your will or make you go anywhere with them.

Really it's not worth getting busted for this so I guess know the place, know where the cameras are and be sure you're not being watched. Be crafty and know the law. I'd get a partner but the less people that know the better (since people will snitch if it gets them off the hook). Don't be dumb and steal something that will set an alarm off- i.e. electronic items. I believe bananas and other food does this at Walmart but I can't imagine you're trying to steal food to re-sell it.

If you're trying to sell stuff, hang on to it for as long as you can- but have a place to hide it. Don't leave it in your house or something and then let the cops in later. Stash it with a buddy if possible, I'd say at your storage but you could get busted if the police get a warrant- if you do put it in your storage have one of those round heavy-duty locks (the cut-proof ones). The actual selling, maybe on craigslist but if it was something valuable or something that was obviously stolen, you can get busted that way. If it's something untraceable (i.e. not a TV or an electronic device) take it to a pawn shop out of the area the next time you are away. Sell things to private buyers in person (people you know and trust). You could sell it online on sites like eBay as well, ship it out of the country if the opportunity comes.

These are just some basic tips that people tend to overlook. Mostly you'll have to improvise and use your common sense to get away with it.

Okay, I've practised shoplifting for years some time ago, and heres what you do:
1)Pockets suck. Sleeves go a long way for candy bars, markers, pencils, even cigars. The more constricting sleeves, the better. Don't however, let your loot stick out - the thicker the better.
2)Pockets suck. Anything larger goes in your pants, behind your belt - spray paint, boxes, bottles. Belt goes a long way. Would not work if you're skinny, for obvious reasons.
2-2)Don't put items, that you would feel uncomfortable with at your dick. Don't walk funny.
2-3)Work with one hand. If you really have to use both hands to shove a candy bar up your pants, like it often happens in tv shows, my son, you may happen to be retarded.
pre3)For both 1st and 2nd points I would like to thank my blazer jacket, which covers my crotch.
3)Find a blind spot from cameras and crew. Haul your loot and only then stuff it in your pants, silly.
4)Second time you go to a shop, have a look around, walk around, as if you were confused. If an employee as much as looks at you, get out.
5)Best to work in pairs. Alone you look so vulnerable and sneaky, two of you can cover each others backs, yet three people make a crowd, which is, of course, suspicious.
6)Keep multiple items in multiple locations. Even if someone busts your sleeve, you still have those beer bottles sitting on your dick, bubble gun in front right and back right pockets, and a pack of cigs in your coats inner pocket. Don't steal a lot of objects, though - you are saving, not living on your skill, Robin Hood.
7)Keep a cool head. Prepare yourself, experienced employees spot a jumpy guy - jumpy means trouble. Try to lift your own items, to see if you have chosen the right clothing.
8)Don't smoke before lift. POCKETS SUCK. Smoke after.

I was always afraid to steal from super markets because I assumed that the alarm would go off if I walked out the doors.

Those only work with items that have beepers. Often - liquor, brands clothing, electronics... Beepers are small plastic things attached to such certain products, to protect the most expensive ones from being lifted.

I call them beepers, because if you try to pass exit, exits gonna beep. Few products have RIFD chips on them, which, after purchase of such product, is removed by shops staff member. This video explains how to remove them in home field advantage (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqBkLXo-j940), yet RIFD devices can have any shape or size or whatever.

Don't get me wrong, I've no problem with you stealing shit. Just don't do it in my store.

go into the grocery store or anywhere where there is produce that gives bags with the little wire tristies. Always double bag your stuff and take two twisties. Sneak a few in your pocket and in no time you could sell the twisties at the metal yard by the pound, or on ebay. Also, take huge wads of toilet paper from public restrooms.

dont just steal shit then try sell it....steal to order. take a plastic bag with empty cornflake box with rag in the bottom to the store like you bought it in the last store. drop ordered toiletries, untagged booze, razor blades, meat etc into the empty box. buy something cheap then walk out.

if the store has wifi, log on and get the ip. later at starbucks try that ip on port 9000 etc or 23, 8080. you can often get into the dvr on the camera system. i can get a few shops near me and steer the cameras away from steal zones, one i can wipe selected days footage, copy an old one to that filename. then you can really take the piss and when they look for who took that 42" tv....well nobody did, its still there. manager then manager suspicion. lol

I don't steal but I work at a superstore and can tell you that most employers are not allowed to stop you and can lose their job if they do. I've had people walk into my store, grab TV's and walk out, knowing we can't do anything about it. Your main goal should be to not look suspicious at all, just wearing regular clothes and acting like youre shopping. If you want it to be easier, go to a store in a city that enforces a 'bring your own bag' law or something so they it is alot less weirder to just grab stuff and put it in your bag, then walk right past the registers and be done with it.

I have a jacket with a shell that has pockets on the interior that are inaccessible when zipped up. I can drop shit in there when no ones looking and then zip it up. If someone told me to empty my pockets nothing would be there, because its between the inside and the outside of my jacket.
