I know one of these people for sure, and maybe two...although I've only met her a couple times. Funny how when you think you know someone, especially a family member... x.x And before anyone asks, no, I don't know where they live. I tend to not talk to family much.

i dont know why anyone would steal from kohls when they practically GIVE stuff away!(80% off on the clearance rack then you get to use a 30% off coupon on top of that).

But everyone voted for Obama so they could get government handouts and would no longer have to steal instead of work. What happened to the hope and change?

Countries like Turkey, for instance, do not have much of a theft or vioent crime rate to speak of, they have more problems with opium addiction but nowhere near our Country's. They simply will cut one of your hands off and leave one so you can do hard labor and not try to make a disability claim to the gov't. MAYBE since Franklin County does not consider it "habitual or serial theft" until it reaches 10, maybe the first offense they start with the first finger but after six, make sure to leave kinda a lobster claw for these thuglets so they still have their opposable thumb and forefinger and start taking a toe each time. I am being 'flip' of course--just as ridiculous as them waiting until it reaches beyond 10 thefts to actually start counting! I guess this would be a type of ghetto sesame street character rather than "The Count"!! Maybe Walmart needs to make a sign like banks have that says,'No Hoodies, weapons, etc., but have it say no rear hanging out, 8 times larger baggy pants hanging down to knees or cart-leaning, wide-screen rears to curb the ghettorats from stealing! THAT would hurt their bottom line though and probably write off as much theft each year as an average lower tier millionaire. Funny, the drug stores are now having to actually lock-up the baby formula powder like the cold medicine because although they get the stuff free through WIC, but they are multiplying as fast as unchecked baboon's at the zoo!

Excellent reporting. Why aren't the faces posted in every store so that all shoppers can help catch these people. I don't like paying higher prices because these serial shoplifters steal so much. Also stores should have to have surveillance cameras to aid in the prosecution efforts.

Why would they release the shop-lifters. Shouldn't they be put in jail or something?

Most greeters are 75 - 80 yrs. old. Hell, they can't remember what they had for lunch, much less remember what the person looked like.

What a bunch of CLASSY people. Nice photos! Come on Ohio. YOU are letting these people get away with this by not having stiffer punishments.

If you want them to stop, you need to make the consequences harsher. If you aren't going to do that, then STOP COMPLAINING.
