A FORMER Lowe’s employee revealed that employees know when you’re stealing and there’s a special sign to let you know you’re being watched.
The woman shared the information on TikTok.
“You don’t just steal and leave and then you’re good,” she said explained.
“If they aren’t able to physically go out and catch you, they will watch on the monitors and create a file for you on a DVD,” she claimed.
“Every few days an officer would come and grab the DVD and take it to the police station,” Jessica continued.
“They would track her down and issue a warrant for her arrest,” she warned menacingly.
Jessica said shoppers should be cautious if they think they got away with shoplifting, as in most cases they didn’t get away.
“They know you do it, they watch you do it and then turn you in. boom,” Jessica joked.
A number of people stormed into the comments section.
“I used to work at Lowe’s too, crazy I saw people stealing,” one person commented.
“Okay, but what if you accidentally stole but put it back as soon as you realize it?” asked another.
According to a retail expert, shoplifting has become such a serious problem across the US that shoppers are facing significant price hikes.

Target’s CEO said, “We’re not the only ones seeing a trend that has only gotten worse over the past 12 to 18 months.”
