How much do shoplifters steal...


In the case of Gene Bunch shoplifting cost retailers a whole "bunch". The 39 year old Tulsa native was arrested for shoplifting $2,385.52 worth of merchandise from six different retailers. He is currently on parole after serving over two years in prison for shoplifting. Stacy Gene Bunch is a well known shoplifter int the Tulsa area for good reason. He has cost local business people thousands and possibly tens of thousands of dollars. He was caught stealing over $2,000, which makes you wonder how much he has stolen that is not known. My guess would be at least ten times that amount. The math in this case makes the need for a security tag system obvious. One shoplifter fresh out of prison for retail related crimes immediately went back to stealing and cost local merchants thousands. Having a visible security tag system in many cases will be enough to send criminals like Bunch looking for another venue to shoplift. Why steal from a store with a Sensormatic or Checkpoint system when there are other retailers that are more vulnerable. The Gene Bunch's of the world are always looking for the easiest target. Having a retail security tag system makes a store less likely to be shoplifted from.

I am currently enrolled in the bachelors degree from Criminal Justice. A few weeks back we took a field trip to a secondhand store and observed loss prevention measures. It is amazing how much people are willing to steal. Not so much the amount to steal, but the amount of desire in themselves they have to steal.

EPG Security Group’s Uniformed Security Services are the most visible due to the nature in which they are deployed. Our Officers regularly interact with the public at large and need to be held to a higher degree of professionalism.
