Larceny on 34th Street: An In-Depth Look at Professional Shoplifting in One of the World's Largest Stores – A Memoir

By: David Rey

About the Book

What is Organized Retail Crime? What are professional shoplifters? Do people really pay their bills and raise their families using the proceeds they earn from shoplifting? What causes someone to choose shoplifting as a profession? Answers to these questions and more make for a compelling memoir, a story that is yet to be told. Professional Shoplifting by members of Organized Retail Crime is a craft, from using their own children and/or recruiting children on the street to their clever use of burglary tools which helps them facilitate these thefts, this is a rare kind of memoir. It is the author’s hope that Larceny on 34th Street: An In-Depth Look at Professional Shoplifting – A Memoir serves as any introductory piece that puts Organized Retail Crime in the public spotlight.

    Great book, a very interesting read. I had no idea what happens behind the scenes in a department store and how dangerous it can be. I'm looking forward to reading more from the author David Rey.
