    I don’t understand why people think they can get items that don’t belong to them. Where is Jesus in their life?

    $500 is a lot of liquor when it’s cheap . How can one be distracted enough to let someone walk out the door with that much liquor . Sounds fishy to me

    Never saw that in The Hive…. that’s because the employees are always watching the customers asking if they need help. The fact that they stole $500 worth of liquor by “distracting” the worker….how? Unless there was a gun held to their head, there’s no reason for this. Boddles needs to do better. This is in a well lit parking lot, that’s very busy as well. Soooooo….something sounds really fishy here.

    This happens in liquor stores a lot. Anybody that doesn’t understand this doesn’t have a clue about shoplifting. Store needs to add a camera behind the cashier facing the customers.

    How in the world did they get to that much? They must have gotten the employee in the back of the store or something. Geezz.

    Those pictures look like they were taken from a camera from behind the counter and cashier with a front on picture of the 2 men. There is always a way for a thief to steal.
