The Ingenuity That Is Shown by
the Woman Thief
The Satchel With a False Bottom and
the Slit In the Dress Near the Belt
Some Schemes Successful Because cf
Their Very Simplicity
As uiiMiLioiis as they are ingenious
aiv tlic tricks of the modern shoplift
ers declare store detectives It keeps
the detectives tmsy to get on to the
de vires of the men and women who
live ly their wits in stealing from
stores For tricks that are canny few
classes ot criminals it is said ai
proach them
The method of stealing by using the
satchel with a false bottom Is one of
t ho cleverest of the tricks
Well disguised tho shoplifter enters
a store Her eyes run over the coun
ters She perceives the object she
wants usually something small and
valuable sometimes a purse a custom
er has left lying on rlie counter
Over the object the shoplifter places
her satchel Pretending to delve into
the satchel to extract a purse or hand
kerchief the thief lifts a false huttom
in the bag reaches under it draws in
side the desired article adjusts the
false bottom closes the satchel and
walks away
Rut this is only one of many clever
ruses employed declared a detective
the other day The women especially
arc ingenious Their dress of course
belps them
One of the methods of stealing is
for the shoplifter to have a slit in her
dress near the belt As she stands near
the counter she can deftly seize the
article desired be it a piece of lace
or costly fabric or a bit of jewelry
and slip It into the skirt The folds of
the skirt are voluminous and conceal
the thing stolen-
Some tricks are successful because
of their simplicity A fashionably
dressed woman may walk into the
clothing department look over coat
suits pick up one fold it neatly up
place it under her coat and walk
If she is detected she will indig
nantly declare that she bought the suit
some time before and that she has
brought it back to be altered
Or a woman her hands glittering
with rings and dressed in the latest
style may walk into the store some
winter day She wears only a rich
coat of dark fabric
In the coat department she will ask
to see some fur lined coats Oh she is
very particular and tries on one after
another Other customers come up and
the saleslady gets busy with them
while madam is trying to suit hersejf
While the saleslady is turned she
puts on one of the richest sable trim
med coats turns on her heel and
walks away Perhaps the salesgirl
may not notice the loss until there is
an account of stock
Each month from fifty to sixty ar
rests are made in the average large
department store The detectives must
be extremely careful for a false charge
would precipitate a suit for damages
which would mean many thousands
Certain departments hold especial
lures for shoplifters The jewelry de
partment is invariably guarded When
the furs come in we have sleuths who
keep their eyes open for the woman
who likes to take a fur to the window
to examine it then running for the
door the woman with the false skirt
and the woman who puts a fur on and
audaciously walks away
Although the sales departments and
the detective departments work to
gether there exists between them a
spirit of justifiable rivalry If a de
tective perceives some one getting
away with goods it casts discredit on
the person behind the counter from
which the goods were stolen There
fore the sales folk keep an alert watch
for shoplifters
One might imagine that goods are
dumped pellmell on the counters of
the big stores As a matter of fact the
efficient saleslady will have everything
so arranged thai she will notice the
disappearance of an article almost im
If a saleswoman suspects a person
she immediately notifies the head de
tective If it is a woman i woman
detective is usually put on the job It
is said store managers usually find
women more efficient than men
Few arrests are ever made in rhp
stores as an arrest gives only unde
sirable publicity The detective usual
ly follows suspected prrsuns from the
store and arrests him r her outside
It is said that arrests tor shoplifting
in New York exceeii iu a rear In
that city a full lecntn of ati shop
lifters eauulu are scti t tin- Itetail
Dry Coeds assnriaiiun which in -turn
distribute the infoi iu m the va
rious members
Only by com eriei aition and with
hiirhly organized 7s detectives
tan the stores eope with the ingenious
The detective system of the bij
stores however N now so perfect
that it is dangerous to attempt shop
lifting Even the cleverest shoplifter
faces a louujail term in the pursuit of
her nefarious work
More than that if a shoplifter for
any reason should escape paying the
penalty of crime in one city she may
not be so fortunate in another De
scriptions of all suspected persons are
sent out broadcast and arrest in an
other city may mean a jail term even
though the thief may have escaped
punishment previously Philadelphia
