Disney Thief

Just an observation that I couldn't quite believe. I was standing with a stroller in the Jewelers on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom on Monday 17th Dec. I noticed an older lady on a motability scooter pulling bags off the shelves and pulling the stuffing out. She moved around the shop and put 5/6 bags by her feet. She then moved to the corner and started stuffing them in disney world carrier bags. As soon as I realized what was happening, I alerted a cast member who chased her into the next shop. I can't believe how brazen this was.

same here - stood and watched once (serving others) when a "lady" came in ripped a pair of scissors from its package and walked out the door. Owner shouted after her and she just said - "prove it" - and walked off. Brass neck...

Nothing surprises me now...I worked in retail! Whilst in Magic Kingdom earlier in the month, I parked the buggy up by the Carousel...went on Mickeys Philharmagic... came back and someone had untied and stolen my granddaughters balloon!

I watched a young mum with a child in a buggy take alcohol gifts of the shelf at Debenhams then nipped behind an unmanned till and took the carrier bags to out them in And hung them off the pushchair . Mum and I where gobsmacked watching it all. I alerted the girl stacking the shelfs who got security . They tracked her through Meadowhall and she had done numerous shops . The more brazen the harder they are to notice apparently .

The tricks I've seen people pull recently is unbelievable, I'm just getting ready to go into work and I bet one of first things I'm told is to keep a watch out cos thief's have been in again... I've seen people brazenly load wheelchairs, prams, bags for life with stuff, I've found bags hidden under clothes cubes near to doors full of stuff picked up and squirrelled away from different departments over the store ready to grab later on, people swapping their shoes for shoes on sale is a regular one, my mum got really excited once in our store when she found a Debenhams cardigan and thought we had that department now, we don't someone had swapped their cardi for a different one we sold, I recently found an empty packet of shoe insoles hidden amongst picture frames... Gotta be tight to Nick a 2 pair of insoles lol.
Have to say though if someone in our store nicked a pair of scissors or knives I'd never challenge em, minimum wage isn't worth injury 😳

I've never worked in retail, but now I help in a charity shop each week. They even steal from there!
