Experts: Huggies Heist Sign Of Times

Item: Huggies heist sign of recession crime, experts say/Jody Lawrence-Turner, SR

More Info: On Saturday, the man started yelling “sorry” when a 28-year-old security guard stopped the two walking out of Safeway on Francis Avenue at North Monroe about 5:30 p.m. with Huggies in their cart, authorities said. Then the man punched the security guard, leaving a mark on his cheek, according to a Spokane County Sheriff’s Office press release. The security guard grabbed the man’s shirt to stop his escape, but the shirt ripped off, said Sgt. Dave Reagan. He ran from the area.

Question: If you saw someone shoplifting, would you report it to store employees?
