Florida Deodorant Robin Hoods Steal 75 Sticks to Give to Smaller Stores

How Do You Steal 75 Sticks of Deodorant? Like This

Fort Pierce, FL, has its own deodorant-stealing "Robin Hoods" these days: shoplifters who steal huge amounts of personal care products from big chain drugstores and supermarkets to resell them at a much lower cost to mom-and-pop stores in the area. Recently, two women stole 75 sticks of Gillette and Secret deodorants from a Winn-Dixie, an amount with a total value of over $375. Apparently, some smaller stores are even soliciting people to steal this stuff, because deodorant is expensive and homegrown shops are struggling to stay afloat.

It's amazing that the women were able to get that much deodorant in their bags and then walk out of the store unnoticed, but it's also crazy and sad that things have reached a point economically where little stores are dependent on thievery for survival. What do you think about all this? And do you have any sympathy for the stores stocking these stolen products?

Amazing. I love whoever came up with 'Robin Hoods' because that is definitely a hood move. If I was piss broke I don't think I'd ever go to great lengths to steal something like deodorant. Maybe if I was bored and I already stole a week's worth of food. (I joke)

Seventy five!? Outrageous.

I forgot to mention that certain dollar stores in the city of Chicago even have the deodorant behind the counter. I mean that is downright tragic that they have to put some no name deodorant behind the counter. But I guess I can't speak on this since I spend at least five dollars for deodorant *shrugs*.

I'll tell you how I feel: absolutely disgusted. Speaking from my own experience at the mom and pop shops around me, they are grossly overpriced, some of the perishable products have expired when Iran freed those hostages when Carter left office, third world filthy, and they reek of cigarette smoke. I understand that undertaking a risky business in opening a store and they need to relieve the stress but d@mn I wonder if it is against city ordinance that smoking where you sell food is against the law.
