It's not unusual for law enforcement around the country to take similar approaches and charge chronic offenders with burglary or possession of burglary tools, said Richard Mellor, senior adviser for asset protection for the National Retail Federation.
"It's out of frustration of trying to keep these chronic offenders out of the premises," Mellor said. It's effective, he said, with people drawing jail time they wouldn't get if they had been charged with a lesser crime.
Though, Mellor said, "There are people who will come back sometimes after getting out of jail, and they can't stop themselves from stealing.
Organized retail crime in the United States is estimated to cost stores $30 billion to $35 billion a year in losses, Mellor said.
It trickles down to consumers when retailers raise prices to make up for the losses, Mellor said. And as stores put in safeguards to make items harder to steal, it can inconvenience lawful shoppers, he said.
