IF YOU DRIVE A CAR:
Park as far AWAY from the mall as possible to avoid external security cameras. You guys may THINK you’re safe as soon as you’re out of the mall, but that is simply not the case.
Numerous factors must be taken into account ahead of time. For example, if you are the type to pull risky hauls, may have been caught on camera one or numerous times and/or potentially have a case built against you, there is sufficient evidence of your crime. Mall cameras situated throughout hallways and in between stores are always being watched. If you take enough from a store? And you’re on camera, there is proof of your crime? All they have to do is use the mall cameras to trace you out of the mall, and if your license plate is on tape, you can be reported to the police and in danger. You all laugh at “rookies” who steal from stores and park right outside for their license plates to be photographed or taped. But you think it’s smarter to do at a mall? With security at every turn? And an even larger chance of cameras being everywhere? And then going back and forth to dump merchandise and build the case?
Just walk a bit further. I urge you.
