Just like hunters wait for hunting season, shoplifters are priming themselves for their time of year.  The holidays!  A new study conducted by Ad Week shows that 1 in 11 folks, shopping at any store, leaves with at least one item that they didn't pay for.  They also found that the" art of shoplifting" is up by 6% this year.

If those stats are correct, retailers could lose around...... $119-billion dollars of merchandise this year alone!

So, who's shoplifting? - About 75% of the shoplifters are adults with jobs.
