There are many different kinds of Theft charges in Denver, Arapahoe, and El Paso County. These include identity theft, embezzlement from an employer, fraud, and shoplifting. Today, we're going to take a look at shoplifters and how they are charged after taking items from stores across Colorado. I recently saw a video which illustrates just how clever shoplifters can be. Let's take a look:
Woman Hides TV Under Skirt: One Creative Shoplifter
In the video (see below), the woman expertly hides an entire television under her skirt. It all takes place in a matter of seconds (the video itself is only 14 seconds long).
The video of this woman is going viral across the world, as people applaud her incredible dexterity in hiding the TV. We're really not sure how she manages walking while hiding such a large box. Seeing this video begs the question: What would this woman be charged with if she had tried to steal the TV from a store in Douglas, Adams, or Jefferson County?
