For These Two Shoplifters, Crime Did Pay

USA Today had this story of a mother and son shoplifting team that managed to steal about $2 million dollars of goods taken from Toy's R Us stores in 27 states. 
Authorities alleged that the pair would shoplift using the "box stuffing" method that involves emptying the box of a cheaper item in the store and filling it with more expensive goods.

They would then pay the box's lower sticker price at checkout. 
Anyone who thinks organized retail theft is a minor crime is mistaken.
