I shop at a Walgreens and there is a man who’s been around for about a year. He walks in and I have seen him walk out with a 6 pack of beer and even put batteries in his pocket and walk out. Tall, skinny black guy with sunglasses and a cap. Most of the products in the store are locked up because of this and you have to ask somebody to unlock it. It’s sad that this is what we’ve come to because of some who should be locked up forever.
