A few days ago, I read somewhere that there are a few pretty effective security/theft staffers available. In retail, nonetheless.

Check it out, Target.

Please show us

The closer video pictures of 6:47:42 to 45 PM.
He already had his hat pulled down as he approached the doors way back.

I have to ask where was Loss Prevention on this tale tale sign?

Understanding the AC can only publish what it gets from the RCSO. I once again have to ask, does our RCSO really want help? The provided Info is near totally useless, and is 8 days late in coming.

Using some Photo app's that I have.
It generally it "looks" to be a:
White Guy
29 to 35 years old
200+lbs
Upper body wide /heavy set
5'11" to 6'1"
(don't laugh) he looks to favor his left side or foot by the way he is leaning and bracing on the cart. If you have a walking issues you'll understand.

Note: 2 TVS which look to be SAMSUNG about 37" to 39" models. Plus there is some small stuff under the cart as well.

Does RCSO have any plans to release any useful info or the vehicle description?

How hard...

would it be to just have someone checking receipts for at least the large items, especially electronics, especially this time of year? TVs are very large boxes! How in the world could someone get away with that? Loss Prevention needs to get on the stick! May be alittle aggravating to the non-criminal, but at least it might deter a few thefts. Geez. Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Sam's has no problem checking receipts, 6 feet from the register!
