Not If You Grab Them Before They Run!

, , , , | Legal | January 11, 2021

The discount store I manage is open very late at night. This sometimes invites transient activity and shoplifting, as fewer employees work at night than during the day. While we do have loss prevention or security around, this doesn’t deter some people.

Tonight it’s been rough. We’ve had four counts of shoplifting activity so far. Two of them have been grab-and-runs right out the door, while the other two were successfully recovered. My security and I are talking about the last one when we notice more customers acting suspicious and determine this will be the fifth time tonight.

Security: “If we have three grab-and-runs tonight, am I fired?”
