Shoplifters hit Los Angeles area TJ Maxx, casually leave store carrying heap of stolen goods

Cities across California are reporting an uptick in shoplifting crimes
By Emma Colton | Fox News

Two men in a Los Angeles suburb were seen on camera brazenly leaving a TJ Maxx store with their arms full of shoplifted items.


"They didnít even run out, they walked out," Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Jerretta Sandoz told CBS LA of the incident. "And so, thatís sending a message that we, the criminals, are winning."


The video was recently filmed at a TJ Maxx in Granada Hills and shows two men leaving the store with their arms packed with clothing and other items, with one of the men carrying a large duffle bag that appears to be full of items.

"That looks great," one man comments in the video as the men walk by.

The LAPD is investigating the incident, but neither of the men have been charged or arrested.

"The employees at TJ Maxx have been told that, in these specific circumstances, itís not worth it for you to go and physically attack, physically stop people that are walking out with this inventory," criminal defense attorney Alexandra Kazarian said of why many employees donít confront shoplifters. "Because these businesses have insurance."

"People who are stealing giant, giant tote bags, giant backpacks worth of inventory are not getting the same benefit of the people that are stealing food and clothing for their children," she said.

Sandoz, who serves as vice president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, said she blames the incident on Prop 47, a 2014 referendum that lowered criminal sentences on crimes such as shoplifting.

"If theyíre caught, theyíre probably given the equivalent of a traffic ticket," she told CBS LA. "So itís not taken seriously."

"If you let these criminals think that they can go in and steal merchandise and steal things, what happens when someone tries to stop them," Sandoz added.

Shoplifting isnít unique to Los Angeles, as other cities in the state are reporting an increase.

Business owners and security officials in San Francisco, for example, are decrying the "lawlessness" in the city over shoplifting.

"This is really bad. Iíve been in the Bay area 20 years, Iíve never seen this," a local security guard, J.C. Hernandez, told Fox News.

"Itís just lawlessness," he added. "People are just openly coming in and stealing stuff."

San Francisco Police Department spokesman Robert Rueca added that shoplifters aren't stealing "one or two items that someone might need to get by."

"Our investigations have shown that there are organized fences where people are selling these products that they steal," he said.

And remember the dolt in the White House said this.

The fact of the matter is that what's happened is that we're in a situation now where there are so many people who are in jail and shouldn't be in jail. The whole means by which this should change is to ó the model has to change,Ē he said, adding: ďNobody should be in jail for a nonviolent crime.Ē

They've been doing this all over the country for years. They walk into a home improvement store grab a chainsaw and walk out, employees get fired if they confront them unless loss prevention. Cops get called is all. Recovery and conviction rstes are super low. Eventually stores will hire armed gaurds but they're a bunch of pussies afraid of all these libtard fukin judges awarding money cause somebody got detained sothe stores just write the losses off. Criminals win either way.
When i was little you'd get an ass beating for shoplifting.. Now they hold the door for you.

Singapore has one of the lowest crime rates in the non Muslim world. They cane people for minor crimes and have a fast track to the hangman for violent crimes and drug crimes.

Their jails are run like boot camp. You step out of line once and the world comes down on your head. Recidivism is very low.

I lived in LA back in the day when drivers were rude AF. Once a few folks got shot on the 405 for their antics, everybody became lovey-dovey. Not suggesting a solution, just mentioning an observation.

An armed society is a polite society.

Demise of all major societies start when you centralize power and then reward people and businesses for bad life choices.

Don't confront them as the business has insurance. Right, insurance companies aren't stupid, won't be long before the shops can't afford loss insurance. Then what excuse will they use?

You are literally statistically more likely to get struck by lightning in Dubai, than you are to be mugged on the Metro, and it almost thunderstorms in Dubai.

What do you think their law enforcement is like?
