Since the racial justice riots that erupted in the wake of George Floyd’s death over a year ago, major metropolitan areas have become hotbeds for shoplifting, frustrating many members of the local community.

A video posted recently on social media depicts two individuals pillaging a Lowe’s store in Oregon before nonchalantly walking out with expensive electrical wires.

Local resident Andrew Sullivan expressed his disgust with the lawlessness to the Keizer Times. “It was so blatant, that’s what riled me up. They were just strolling through the parking lot, just riding the carts,” he said.

The crime was committed in broad daylight on August 25, when the pair escorted thousands of dollars of electrical wire out of the store in shopping carts while employees stood by unable to intervene.

When employee attempted to ask the shoplifters to prove their purchases, the men ignored the request and hurried out the door. A second employee also tried to thwart them, saying “Hey don’t do this. It’s not worth it,” he said.

Sullivan suggested that the men were seasoned shoplifters banking on the workers being powerless to stop them, noting that a getaway car was already waiting outside the store front.
