Walmart customers are slamming “out of line” anti-theft measures that make in-store shopping a “terrible experience.”

ONE SHOPPER has slammed Walmart for its “out-of-line” anti-theft measures on inexpensive items.

In a viral video, Tayla claims a clerk twice locked away a tube of mascara before she could buy it as the store continues to crack down on retail crime.

The angry customer recorded a video of herself in Walmart explaining the process she went through to buy cheap makeup.

“So I’m at Walmart because I get my mascara from here,” she said in a clip of hers in the beauty section.

“And they have the curls on the mascara.”

She panned the camera over rows of makeup hanging behind locks preventing shoppers from grabbing it.

“It’s no more than $10, so whatever,” she said.

Tayla caught the attention of a clerk who helped her get the affordable tube.

But instead of just handing her the mascara, she made the buyer wait and said, “I have to get you something,” Tayla said.

“Why did she give me that damn mascara in that box,” she said, holding up a plastic security device that encloses the beauty product.

“No one wants to steal that punk mascara.”

Walmart has cracked down on theft after CEO Doug McMillion spoke out in December about historic high levels of shoplifting.

He told CNBC, “If this is not corrected over time, prices will be higher and/or stores will close.”

Walmart and Target have resorted to storing items behind Plexiglas or locking goods in closets.

The US Sun previously reported that products ranging from pregnancy tests to socks are among the items that have been kept under wraps.

The policy has sparked anger among customers.

A California woman claimed the changes made it “impossible” to shop.

Taking to Twitter, she raged: “Everything is under lock and key like we’re all thieves.

“You’ll have to show a servant around to unlock the closet if you want eye shadow. Ridiculous.”

Another angry customer shared a picture showing underwear and socks being stored in a closet.

One shopper recalled going through a lot of trouble to buy makeup that cost $2, thanks to anti-theft measures.

Self-checkout systems at Walmart have also adapted to deter theft with high-tech cameras.

However, some employees have spoken out about the new technology, claiming it really doesn’t stop shoplifters.

Self-checkout theft methods like the “Switcheroo” and other new “terrible” methods are reportedly still common in many Walmart and Target locations, making retail crime still a major problem.

The US Sun reached out to Walmart for comment, but didn’t immediately respond.
