If you can't afford it, get a job and buy it! Now you look like fools because everyone in town knows that you are thieves!

What Is a person to do if they have no Job or money..Wal-Mart can afford a couple hundred dollar loss

This Dunsmuir character is certainly in the news for shoplifting often. Looks like her and her husband have a problem: http://tomsriver.patch.com/articles/husband-wife-indicted-on-shoplifting-charges
Get a life September 20, 2012 at 03:52 PM
Maybe you all should get a life and stop dwelling on other people.... You don't know the whole story...!!!!
Patricia Gleeson Matias September 20, 2012 at 03:53 PM
Do thief's get a pass because the store can afford a lost. So the paying people make up the losses.
Bill A Bong September 20, 2012 at 04:10 PM
Are some people really that ridiculous that they leave cars, sheds, bikes and even homes unlocked? And what about the morons that keep stealing from Walmart? So many get caught that you think some of them might get a hint. I know first hand how hard things are as I am in the same boat as most of these people, but damn! Is it worth leaving your kids without a home or parents to try and steal a few items?
. September 20, 2012 at 04:21 PM
What if they broke into you home and stole from you? Would you be so sympathetic. Having no job, does not give anyone the right to steal from any other person or store. These people are too embarrassed to go for assistance if they need it, and would rather have their names in the paper for theft.
ugottabkidding September 20, 2012 at 04:38 PM
Hey Get A Life don't need to know the "whole" story they broke the law by stealing from a store not once but on several occasions there scum as you must be form even sympathizing with these pukes!!!!! They run it for all of us who do work hard for what we want and can't even leave our homes for 5 mins to run and get a gallon of milk without worrying if we need to lock our door or not. Your a moron Get A life
jay September 20, 2012 at 04:40 PM
As I said before (previous posts) you will get caught in Walmart.
jay September 20, 2012 at 04:44 PM
To ugittabkudding. Well said !!!
Mike September 20, 2012 at 04:55 PM
Got caught stealing large amounts of merchandise twice . . . I don't need to know "the whole story". Seems like the entire area knows about these people, they seem to blame everyone but themselves. They only people who need to get a life are this couple, they need help.

I wonder how much time/money the Lacey Twp Police Department spends on Wal-Mart shoplifting offenses. With sending an officer to the store a few times a day and all time spent on paperwork, I would hope Lacey at least breaks even on this "ratable." You don't read about this happening at Kohls or Home Depot as often.
Laura E September 20, 2012 at 06:05 PM
@ Lobotomy...maybe Kohls and Home Depot's loss prevention unit isn't as great as Walmarts? Oh and I love how you make it a bad thing that Walmart catches shoplifters...*smh.
Get a life September 20, 2012 at 06:27 PM
Like I said don't believe everything you read..!!! Your the moran if you do...!!! Peace put not wasting my time..!
Chrisjewl September 20, 2012 at 06:50 PM
If u were poor and needed food for UR kids to me is different than just bn low life's stealing to maybe support a habit, or stealing is the habit. Either way stealing is wrong and is f'd up when these ppl don't care that ppl like my hubby WORKS his butt off to support his family never mind having to go shopping to find out prices went up cause of these who steal stupid stuff and now we, the hard working ppl, are the ones that have to pay for them bn idiots.................. Get a life & a job!¡!!!!!!!!!!!
PeopleAnnoyMe September 20, 2012 at 07:40 PM

I don't know what's worse in this area. The scumbags that continuously rob and steal or the idiots that come on the patch and blame everyone except the people committing the crimes. We can't blame Walmart, Kohls, Home Depot or any other business that may come here. Theses scumbags have been around all along but they were stealing from ShopRite, Ace Hardware and all the other mom and pop businesses around town that don't really have the means to deal with it. If they caught someone they'd just get the merchandise back and kick them them out. With the social media we have today these issues can be brought more to the forefront. I say to all the loss prevention people, keep up the great work and continue to catch these losers. Eventually the judge will get tired of seeing them and be forced to lock them up. These businesses pay hundreds of thousands in taxes and deserve to be able to protect their assets and utilize the Lacey Township Police whenever needed. Just face the facts. The area is growing and that means more people which means more businesses to accommodate them. Most of the people will be honest, law biding citizens but with those there will be some trash. Nothing we can do about it.
Piney Boy September 21, 2012 at 04:01 PM
It's totally clear that every post you make is to just aggravate people. You're definitely an amusing individual. I do have a question though. If you have a bigger, nicer, more expensive tv then me do I have the right to just come into your house and take it? If you could afford it then you could afford the loss no?
Piney Boy September 21, 2012 at 04:05 PM
If I'm not mistaking Walmart pays somewhere in the $300.000 range for taxes. I doubt very much they are taking up $300.000 worth of resources.
SweetVell September 23, 2012 at 05:23 AM
Its greatly amusing that these idiots are continuously trying to steal from Walmart. People are constantly getting caught and these scholars keep on trying, thinking that ’they’ won't get caught. I guess they really don't have a brain in that head of theirs. Whats even more amusing is the Pulitzer prize winners who go in and attempt to steal while they have drugs on them, its unreal, hahaha, no pity.
Penelope October 08, 2012 at 03:55 PM
my son-in-law works for a WalMart in another town as a loss prevention officer. They have cameras all over the store and a room filled with monitors and securtiy people watching your every move. If you so much as pick your nose, they will know. The reason so many try to steal is because they think they know how to do it better and not get caught. Kohl's and HOme Depot don't have the same security set up so you don't hear about all the shoplifting. And I agree with PIney Boy. Just because someone has and you have not, does not give you the right to steal it.
