A Teenage Shoplifter speaks out: I stole thousands of dollars worth of magazines and underwear

OK what has the world come too – underwear and magazines? Is that worth it? I mean stealing undies?….. I used to steal French Vogues, Italian Vogues and Calvin Klein underwear. I was 15 or 16 when I started stealing the magazines and 17 or 18 when I started stealing the underwear. (I’m in my mid-20s now.) After I saw how easy it was to steal magazines, I started stealing underwear.
The underwear phase was literally an intense phase of a year where I just stole so many pairs of underwear that I haven’t had to buy a pair of underwear since.  Once I just walked out the Borders in the mall with French Vogue, Italian Vogue — each issue was something like $15. Every month it became a habit — I would go in and pick up the magazines and nothing ever happened. The alarm never went off. I got the shoplifting thrill. It was like, “I pulled this off, I should do more.”

For the underwear, I would go to Hex, which is now Macy’s. I would pick up six or seven boxes of Calvin Klein underwear — each pair was about $25 and came in its own box — go into the fitting room, put the underwear on top of my own, and walk out. So I would be wearing like six pairs of underwear. I would always take in seven or so pairs, but I would only steal five. After I came out of the fitting room, I’d put all seven boxes back on the shelves. I did this around once a month because I love underwear and it was easy.  Of course, I worried about getting caught all the time.

I would get so anxious walking out the door of the store wearing all those underwear. But I wasn’t stupid about my shoplifting — I would pay atteniton to the cameras, I would make sure there was absolutely no sensor or sticker in the underwear or even in the magazines. I was very meticulous about the whole process. But with all the precautions, I’d still be nervous about it.
