Shoplifters target a popular record store in Ventura, Cal., where a music thief uses a secret device to rip CDs, another tries a scam involving discarded receipts and a third attempts to get his hands on rare vinyl records.
A wave of shoplifters hit a surf shop in Miami's South Beach neighborhood; two bikini bandits try to pull a dressing-room heist; and a would-be thief attempts to bag a watch by putting it into a bag of chips.
Operatives seek grab-and-dash thieves who are running wild at a Jersey City, N.J., department store, while a thief snatches a big-screen TV and a criminal stashes clothing in a wheelchair. Later, agents use a car that was left behind in a bungled getaway to try and trap a crook.
In the premiere of this reality series following security personnel as they keep tabs on shoplifters, the agents keep watch over a New Jersey department store, where a woman claims a pair of designer sunglasses fell into her milkshake and a 300-pound shopper is confronted about lifting lingerie.
