What is Shoplifting?

According to the National Association of Shoplifting Prevention’s research, more than $13 billion worth of merchandise are stolen from retailers every year (which estimates to around $35 million per day). Furthermore, 1 in 11 Americans are probable to commit a theft at some point in their lives, but only 10 million individuals have been caught shoplifting in the last five years. In fact, according to NASP, only 1 in 48 shoplifters are caught, and only about 50% of them are turned over to police for prosecution. 


While the romanticized face of shoplifting is the starving child stealing something to eat, the reality is quite different. According to specialists, there is no such thing as a “typical” shoplifter. NASP states that both genders shoplift in approximately equal proportion. What is more, 1 in 4 shoplifters are underage. Among adult shoplifters, 55% say they started shoplifting in their teen years. Most of these people do not commit other types of crimes and which is even more surprising, they are exemplary citizens who obey the laws and pay their taxes. 


However, when it comes to the definition itself, shoplifting should be considered the theft of merchandise from a store or retail establishment without the knowledge of the seller and without paying for them. In certain cases, the intent to steal, along with an act in furtherance of that intent, can also result in criminal charges for shoplifting (or retail fraud). An act in furtherance of shoplifting might include:



However, a number of psychologists describe shoplifting as a pandemic and undoubtedly, theft is a scourge for our society and one of the global problems of our time.
