when I was young My Mama told me never take anything that dosen't belong to you. it seems some of you didn't hear that one. Celebrity shoplifters such as Winona Ryder and Lindsay Lohan seem to confirm that shoplifting is a woman’s crime. However, a Columbia University study found that men shoplift more than women. And don’t think that people are shoplifting out of need. People shoplift what they want. According to the National Retail Federation, the most-shoplifted items in the United States include:
Chewing gum
Red Bull energy drinks
Dyson vacuums
Weight-loss drug Alli
Bumble and Bumble hair products
Cover Girl cosmetics
Crest Whitestrips

This makes the average shoplifter look like an over-caffeinated, pain-pill-popping neat freak obsessed with his or hair, teeth and skin – not someone trying to provide for their hungry family.
