Recently I read about a theft in my city from several businesses in a mall. There is one common factor among the victim stores – they did not have security tags on clothes. The suspect, female, was caught and arrested after an alert store employee noticed the woman leaving with merchandise and coming back in the store for more. When police searched the woman’s car, however, they found it full of merchandise that the suspect had stolen and taken to her car before returning for more. She had, essentially, successfully stolen those items and would have been able to get away with the crime if she had not been greedy and gone back for more.
Much of the merchandise stolen was from clothing stores. There was no clothing alarm or clothing security to alert store employees that the thefts were occurring. Because of the these stores lack of clothing security they suffered thousands of dollars of loss that was fortunately recovered – this time. And if the crime hadn’t been discovered while in progress…those thousands would be lost.
Had these stores been utilizing clothing security tag, they may not have even been targeted by this individual. Additionally, had this thief entered the stores with the intent to steal, she may have changed her mind when she realized that there were plenty of clothing security precautions in place including security tags on clothes. Once she was able to get in and out of these businesses successfully one time without drawing attention, it was fair game. When a clothing alarm and clothing security tags are used this is no easy task.
This tale of theft has a happy ending since the bad gal went to jail. But for every shoplifter apprehended there are many more that are successfully stealing from businesses. By protecting the clothing that you sell using clothing security tags, you’re making a minimal investment that can have magnificent rewards.
