Alright, this situation is very hard to imagine, but picture a shoplifter with a vacuum under his or her shirt Very funny,
right? Whether they have really big pockets or they own an invisibility cloak, the truth is this item is one of the most
stolen in America. Looks like nobody wants to use the old broom anymore.

2. Pregn@ncy Tests

Ok, if you think this through, it’s very predictable, but if you take the statistics into account, the +een m0m rate is very
alarming. The hypothesis is that most of these +eens don’t want to be discovered buying tests, so it seems like they
chose otherwise. Experts say that these thefts are a cultural issue. Let’s face it, nobody wants to point a finger.

3. KitchenAid mixers

How can anybody shoplift a KitchenAid mixer and can get away with it? The trick is that there are multiple in store
checkouts and the items are so large that no employee thinks you have stolen it. What an excellent clue, right?

4. Weight loss pills

List Of The Most Unusual Shoplifted Items


Besides weight loss, allergy pills are the most popular among the pharmaceutical shoplifters, and, rumor has it that
these thiefs are the most extreme ones. A man in Salem, Utah, for example, recently chose to hide sleeping pills in his
baby’s diapers. Let’s hope for her sake that there weren’t any other "surprises" in there, too. Seems just like that old
saying, ?Desperate times call for desperate measures.?

If you’ve been noticing a healthier, more youthful glow, a heavenly smell and soft, silky skin among the common
criminal population these days, it’s because more and more shoplifters are using their five-finger discount for the sake
of vanity. Health and beauty products consistently rank among the most sought-after stolen goods. The experts tell us
that shoplifters are as brand-conscious as any shop customer. ?L’Oréal, because it’s worth it??

6. Electric toothbrushes & replacement heads

List Of The Most Unusual Shoplifted Items


Shoplifters found out what dentists have long known. Dental hygiene is a lucrative business. These products are
compact, reasonably costly and can be sold for near-retail prices. Electric toothbrush heads are expensive and small,
making them another prime target. Also, the experts tell us that high-end dental products are a part of a much larger
industry, with many shoplifters going online to resell these items at discounted prices. So, is it not true that these
people are very concerned about their dental health?

7. Baby formula

List Of The Most Unusual Shoplifted Items


As unlikely as it may seem, baby formula is a mainstay on the perennial list of most shoplifted items. On the surface the
contradiction is striking — who would associate a food meant for infants with hoodie-wearing, calculating thieves?
However, shoplifters know that powdered milk is expensive. A can or bottle can last only a week or two depending on
whether it’s used as a premixed formula or powder alone, and how it’s used. (Many mothers use formula as a
supplement to breast feeding while others choose it as a baby’s main source of nourishment.) Or we can just assume
that there are a lot of very desperate mothers that don’t want their babies to starve.

8. Razors

List Of The Most Unusual Shoplifted Items


Razors are the bread and butter of thieves, both small- and big-time, and their theft is the bane of pharmacy and
department stores. Shoplifting razors (in particular the brand-name, expensive, and ever-evolving Mach series) is also
an international phenomenon. Add to this the fact that they’re also quite small in size and you’ve got an item that’s a
prime target for shoplifters.

We now know that these shoplifters are very tidy looking people who do not have growing beards, so that’s an
excellent clue to catch them. After all who can blame them? Razors are very expensive things for being so disposable,
right?

9. Designer clothing/denim

It is really hard to imagine, for an ordinary person like me, how these people have time to choose which clothing
would they would steal? Well, as the statistics show they do, and choose not only good clothes, but DESIGNER denim.
Sounds like a joke but believe me it’s not! It is really happening!

Well, a handbag is not difficult to steal, it’s pretty small and, besides, it sells really well on the internet if it’s made by a
designer. Then it sells itself. Besides, it is really not that easy to be a shoplifter, to ?make it work.? Well, after all we
have seen so far, it seems you’ve got to have excellent taste. What do you think?
