5 Items Popular With Shoplifters


Popular Items On A Shoplifter's Grocery List

The shoplifters of today aren't necessarily looting diamond jewelry or high-end electronic products. They're looking for products that are compact, reasonably costly and can be sold for near-retail prices. Also, shoplifting of today is a much larger industry than you might think, with many shoplifters selling their products to other companies that then go online to resell these items at discounted prices. Many of the most commonly stolen products are perhaps some of the most everyday items you could imagine, far from those classic stereotypes we all call up when we think of retail theft.
