Here’s a case of a shoplifter taking advantage of a store with no bottle security.
As the rain poured down outside, the shoplifter looked for a little something extra to take the bite out of the cold. Entering the store, he heads straight for the liquor aisle. Bottle security is nonexistent in this store and he knows it. Heading for the high end, top shelf bottles, he grabs two. Looking in all directions, he stuffs one in his waistband and the other in the inside pocket of his coat. He heads for the front of the store.
Later, two young males enter the store. In the liquor aisle, they point out the brands they like, paying special attention to the lack of bottle security. One of the males pulls out his cellphone. As he has the phone to his ear, he points to the top shelf and counts bottles. He hangs up. He and his partner leave the store. Minutes later, two females enter the liquor aisle pushing a shopping cart with a baby car seat cover by a blanket. Checking for any form of bottle lock, the females start removing the bottles of liquor pointed out by the two males. As each grabs a bottle without a bottle lock, they place them inside of the covered baby car seat. The two females take their fill of liquor, and head straight for the exit. Completing their deed in less than 3 minutes, the ladies take a large haul.
Attaching a simple bottle lock to many of these bottles could have prevented this store from losing thousands of dollars in liquor and provided better bottle security. This happened in a store where the manager/owner knew of the potential theft and was advised of the risk, yet chose to merchandise the items without any bottle lock. This wasn’t the first time these females were seen in the store, a stockroom associate claims to have seen the ladies earlier in the day and on several other times before.
