have you ever dealt with a shop lifter?

I am a manager in a departmental store and we keep getting people who are afflicted the the malady of shop lifting. Despite having close cirtcuit TV, it still becomes difficult to catch them at times. The other day a whenthe sweeper was clenign up he found a pair of old worn slippers lying in one of the cartons on the slipper rack. Sure enough a new pair of slippers was missing. someone just tried out the new one and walked out with it an dplaced th opld pair in the carton. How do you deal with such people? if they get caught, they start behaving as though they ar very ill and start fainting and falling all over the place.

I guess, you just have to tell them that it is not right stealing since it is part of the ten commandments not to steal. Thus, it's wrong though the person is fainting and stuff.

what always amazed me they always got mad at you. i worked in convenience stores for awhile years back & we had to put up w/alot of shoplifing there. you call the police & that was always the last we heard of it. i bet it's alot worse now that economy is so bad. just be careful.nothing in that store is worth u getting hurt over. i use to get so mad but i was alot younger then . i'm glad i don't have to deal w/thatanymore.
