Behaviour to watch:
When honest customers shop, they generally look at items, checking for price and size. Shoplifters tend to look around the store for cameras and clerks — some even wear sunglasses to hide the fact they are not looking at merchandise.
Shoplifters may hide items in their sleeves, boots, or socks. They may be fidgeting with their cuffs, bending down to tie shoes laces more than once, hitching up their pants or rearranging their clothing. They tend to wear bulky or out-of-season clothing.
Groups of children or teenagers often loiter in front of a store, looking for security measures and how attentive the staff are.
