Interesting Robbery

A woman in USA was arrested for attempting to rob a department store. She allegedly picked up several high priced items and covered up the bar codes with stickers of other merchandise that were on sale in the store.  She paid only $3.70 for items worth more than $1,800.
 
She rang up these items in a self-checkout counter. Usually, the store detectives always keep an extra eye on self-checkout counters. A store detective stopped her before she could leave the building.
 
The bail for her is set for $3,000.
 
Here are some of the comments I read:
 
If you cannot afford it, don’t buy it. Don’t steal it.
 
I am so stupid I just paid $1800 for a cell phone that is worth only $3.70.
 
Did she put a cheaper sticker to get a $3000 bail amount (instead of a bigger bail amount)?
 
If she had stolen $1 billion, she would go scot free with a big reputation.
 
She did not steal anything. Just used creative discount.
 
The reality is this country has seriously stupid people.
 
Looks like this is the first time she was “caught”.
 
PS: There is a reason for writing this blog post. Stay tuned for my next blog post.

  1. She must be standing near the racks to change the stickers. Cameras?

    She is really creative!

    1. Thanks for your comments Megan. I liked your acting in the movie Transformers.

      Wal-Mart SUX. I agree. When you shoplifted $7 worth of lip gloss, you were only a kid. I am all for punishment for shoplifting. But banning you for life from Wal-Mart!! With the money you have now as a famous actress, you don’t need a cheap discount store like Wal-Mart.

  3. Stealing is stealing. If caught one needs to undergo the punishment. Even if they don't get punished immediately by law, they will eventually be punished by Karma, is what I think.

  8. Might be her first attempt.Not a trained burglar. Some people want to be well known either through infamy or through fame. she may be of that sort. But shoplifting is unpardonable.
