We say shoplifting, you probably picture a young girl standing at a clothing rack, glancing side-to-side, then slipping something small into her bag.
The fact is shoplifting is an offense committed by people from all walks of life. A congressional candidate recently accused of shoplifting 279 items from a Target store, for instance. She was allegedly caught attempting to take the merchandise from a store without paying for it. She now faces felony-level charges.
