Two Men Try To Steal From The Wrong Shopkeeper - Watch What She Does

When most people see a shoplifter, they call the police or let their boss know. When someone is stealing, you never know what else they are capable of. What if they have a weapon or start lashing out with physical violence? One female shop assistant did not think of the consequences when she went after two shoplifters.

Two shoplifters entered a K-market shop in Helsinki, Finland, thinking they could steal a few cases of beer. When they were trying to exit the store, the shop assistant approached them and let them know shoplifting was a crime. Unmoved by her words, they continued to leave. In reaction, the shop assistant pepper sprayed both the men. She even grabbed one by his shirt and pulled him back into the store. She was not going to let them get away. The other man stood there stuck in his tracks, watching the remarkable scene.

Police and paramedics arrived quickly as pepper spray does not just immediately immobilize and temporarily blind victims but it also causes lasting pain. The security footage of the incident was posted online by Satu Kytola, the shop owner. It quickly went viral.

According to him his employees have used pepper spray on other thieves who have attempted to rob them. He said, "We have no other mode of operation to be able to intervene. Police resources are small and the penalties are insignificant."

According to Loss Prevention Media, "The annual retail crime survey put forth by the British Retail Consortium reports that the costs of retail crime in the UK reached £613 million (~ $763 million USD) in 2015. Theft by customers reportedly accounts for nearly 83 percent of that cost, with an average value of goods stolen climbing to nearly £325 (~ $404) per incident."

It is reported in the United States, over 13 billion dollars worth of goods are shoplifted every year. Furthermore, more than 1 in 11 people will shoplift at some point in their lives.
