Shocking videos have laid bare America’s $100billion-per-year shoplifting crisis, with brazen thieves strolling out of stores including Home Depot and Ross Dress for Less with their arms full of stolen goods.
Surveillance footage shows a gang of crooks wearing masks wheeling shopping carts loaded with valuable products out of a Home Depot store in New York.
Another clip showed shoplifters loading up duffel bags and backpacks with perfumes and colognes from a Ross store in Colorado.
The National Retail Federation said that the scourge – which grew worse during the pandemic – cost the industry almost $100billion in 2022.
One Ross Dress for Less manager has said that thieves are targeting her Colorado store up to four times a day.
