Holiday season means shoplifting season

The holiday shopping season is in full swing and this year experts say shoplifting is, predictably, on the rise. The National Association of Shoplifting Prevention says one in eleven people are expected to go into a store this year and leave without paying. This could result in a 119-billion dollar loss to retailers this year alone. You may be surprised by the top five items people are stealing. The list includes:

  • Gillette Mach Four Razor Blades
  • the iPhone 4
  • Power tools
  • Expensive liquor
  • Choice cuts of meat, namely filet mignon
