I work in the clothing section of a big chain retailer. I did not witness this, as it happened before my shift.
There were several pairs of gloves that the tag had fallen off of. A coworker was using a hand scanner and printer to print off new tags. She sets the printer down for a moment to get something from the fitting room, but takes the hand scanner with her. When she returns, the printer is missing. There is a customer standing there, but she notices that he is acting odd.
She quietly tells her suspicions to a department manager. At this point, the customer takes off running, and chucks the printer under a clothing rack and runs out the door.
I’m not sure what he was planning on doing with that printer, because it only has a few very specific uses, and can only be used with the hand scanners.
