Other trick is to have a security tag on you when you come in, setting off the alarm. This way when you leave with your stolen merch and the alarm goes off you can say it went off when I came in.
Our solution to that is, if you set off the alarm coming in you will have eyes on you till you leave. I like to call it "aggressive customer service".
While I also love the "aggressive customer service" part, I wonder if the bolded part should be deleted. I am not a thief, so wouldn't have thought about this, but some of the dumbest criminals out there might not have thought of it as well.

Unless, of course, you want to encourage folks to hold up their "I am going to steal" sign as they walk in.
