Keep in mind this retailer has no LP training or team and stop was made by assocaites with no prior background or knowledge of six steps or any LP procedure. I call this just plain stupid!




    Hello group
    We own a small retail business in southern california. Shoplifting has been a problem for us-like many and yesterday we finally caught a juvenile shoplifter.
    My staff followed her out of our store, she went into another business and they asked her "we need to look in your bag, I think you stole from us" the girl handed over her bag and OUR $300 item was in her purse. My staff asked her to come back to our store and wait while we called the police.

    I was not there, but its my understanding that the police came, called the girls mother and mother came-in typical great NEW parenting, the girls mother said her daughter is an angel, would never do it again, never has had problems, and the icing on the cake "She goes to bible school" (PUKE).

    So I guess we have 30 days to press charges. We (there are 4 owners-2 husband and wife couples) feel like we should, but are kind of divided. We live in a small town (100k, small for so cal standards) and our store is VERY successful, not sure if this would be a good thing or bad for our credibility with town folk, etc...

    Thanks for your time, looking forward to some discussion...new to all this 'legal stuff' haha.
    Yes, it is definitely not smart and very risky. I would have a hard time saying stupid for people who own a small business and don't really know better. More ignorant than stupid.
