Boosterbags are used for heavy shoplifting by all organized retail crime gangs. They use boosterbags in order to shield detection of security items e.g. Hard Tags and thereby the not activate the EAS alarm, when leaving the retail store with stolen goods.

Boosterbags, best way to shoplift!

Although boosterbags are the most common used tool, most retailers are unaware of the problem. The reason is that boosterbags are made by professional shoplifters and the actual theft does not leave any traces: No opened tags, no cut pins – only empty shelves and empty hangers!

What is a booster bag?

Shoplifting with boosterbags is a daily activity for organized retail crime gangs. Boosterbags can also be covered as many different types. Organized retail crime gangs are building the boosterbag very creatively; babystrollers with no babies, jackets, bags and regular clothes.

An effective tool!

The advantage of using a boosterbags for shoplifting, is that shoplifting will take less than 30 seconds. Furthermore no EAS system is able to detect a security tag inside a professional boosterbag and it takes only seconds to fill up the bag with expensive merchandise and walk undetected out of the store. Professional boosterbags look similar to any other retail bag from eg. Prada or Louis Vuitton. And to identify these boosterbags you need a metal detector!
