Shoplifting ring hits Lowe's, distracts Managers and Loss Prevention at Returns Desk

There are 3 comments on the story from Jun 17, 2008, titled Shoplifting ring hits Lowe's, distracts Managers and Loss Prevention at Returns Desk. In it, reports that:

Two people were arrested in connection with shoplifting various items from the Lowe's on Route 23 North on Thursday afternoon. Borough police had responded to the store shortly after 2:30 p.m. on the report of shoplifting in progress and found one person had been detained by store personnel and other individuals involved had already left the store in vehicles or on foot. Lowe's officials told police a woman had entered the store and attempted to return chain saws. The transaction appeared suspicious, prompting the interest of store management and store loss prevention. While the woman was questioned, other people allegedly began loading carts with merchandise with one group leaving the store with gas grills that they began loading into a truck. Neil Smiley, 31, of Old Forge, Pa., and Jamey Mead, 29, of Reeders, Pa., were charged with shoplifting and taken to the Morris County jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.

Finally! It's reassuring to see that someone is doing their job! I think it has become common knowledge to too many thieves that Lowe's is the place to go...It's about time the culprits are getting caught! Keep up the good work!
