I was in K-Mart Tuesday and they arrested an elderly man for stealing something. I just wonder if it was food. If it had been, I would have bought it for him. I just saw them putting him in the back seat of the police car as I was coming out of the store.

I use to work as a in store detective/loss prevention. I was working in a store with another in store and they caught an old man stealing tylenol. They said this old man and his wife were in there all the time and brought Candy and cookies for the people who worked there at Christmas. It broke my heart. I offered to pay for the medicine if they would just let him go and tell him not to come back in but they wouldn't do it. They sent him out in handcuffs. I felt so sorry for the old man, he said he simply didn't have money to buy all the meds he needed. That didn't make it right just desperate.

what. have you tried to get in their dumpster? I don't care what they throw away, it still gives no one the right to steal from them. I hope they catch all the thieves and from what I hear walmart catches their share.

I do not shop at Wal Mart unless it is something I can't get anywhere else in town. One of these days when there is nowhere left to shop we are all going to be at their mercy. Their bargains, in the future are going to proved not to be bargains at all but rather deals with the Devil.

A few months ago, I went in Wal-Mart, late one night, to get a peach pie. They didn't have any, so I was going to leave. There was a man, woman and little baby going out the same time as me. Their cart was loaded down. As we were going through the alarm thing, it went off. We stepped to the side. The girl looked at me and said, "it's you that set the alarm off, give me your purse." I did. There wasn't anything in it that I hadn't gone into the store with. The girl turned really red and asked if I had a credit card, in my wallet, which I did. Then she saw my keyring and the remote to my vehicle. She says, "sometimes, credit cards and vehicle remotes make the alarm go off." She saw she had made me mad and told me to go on, then she turns to the family that came out as I did. I went to my vehicle and came on home. If the family didn't have anything, they didn't pay for, I bet she really made them mad, after looking at everything they had in their cart. She probably even had to frisk the little baby. I just wonder how many have gotten past her, that have actually stole something?

Oh, boo hoo....so you all are sympathetic with an old person they caught shoplifting..he's stll a thief and this was probably not his first time. I'm glad they parade thiefs through the store so everyone can see, it might make someone think twice.

you could have sued their ass. she was not sppose to look in/go through your purse. We could never even stop anybody unless the were out of the store and we watched them all the way through the store and knew where it was on them at and that it was defiantely there.

If "you" couldn't stop someone unless you watched them all through the store and knew where it was on them and that it defintely there: How can they stop you at the door and ask to see your receipt?

That was in response to concealment. The items were concealed under their clothes, in their purse. Not in plain view like in a cart or in a bag in their hand. Asking the lady to open her purse was an invasion of privacy.

Are you saying that you know that the reason the person shoplifted was because of being cold, hungry, and friendless? You need to work in loss prevention for 1 week and see the people that shoplift that have hundreds of dollars on them and they steal petty items. I have yet to see one that stole because of hunger or being in need of medicine.

I was in Ambercrombie during Christmas, this mexican stole some shirts, and as he went out the door the alarm went off, the salesgirl ran to the door, but she said I can't go after him, even though I saw him take them.

that once the thief is out side the doors there's nothing the bussiness it's self can do.. that the bussiness has to catch them while inside..its the police's problem once they leave the store..

Outside the store is where it is safe to catch them because inside the store they can say oh, I just forgot and stuck it in my pocket or I was going to pay for it ect.
