  1. The shoplifters were aware of the store’s policy on theft. As the men walk towards the exit with carts full of items, an employee says, “No, I don’t think so.” However, the men are well aware that the staff is powerless to stop them and say as much. “Doesn’t it suck that you guys can’t do anything?” one of the men remarked before walking out.
  2. The men then load their cars up with all their stolen items. After they put it all in the vehicles, they drive away without incident.
  3. It’s clear this wasn’t their first time stealing. Andrew Sullivan, who witnessed the incident, told the Keizer Times: “I think these guys have done it before because they seemed to have a good system. One guy with the car and two guys with the carts. They knew no one was going to touch them.”
  4. Anyone with information on the men’s identities is being urged to contact police. The criminals need to be brought to justice, so anyone with information should hand it over to the authorities.
