Just wanted to clarify a few things. At the place where I work, internals take priority over anything else. When I watch an employee for theft, I am not allowed to lose them for even a second during their shift. We can't fire them right away because we have to build a case and then wait for my supervisor to come down from corporate to interview and fire them. As for the item the shoplifter stole, it was secured in multiple ways, but he had brought wire cutters to cut the shelf cable and security device off of the item. He was in and out in just a few minutes and had a get-away driver waiting for him. He actually did this two more times getting the case value to about $1500, but thankfully the police found and arrested him ?

Where do you work where a customer can get away with easily stealing something that's $500? Depending on the size of the merchandise, most stores I know either lock up $500 merchandise if it's kept on the floor or they keep it in the back.

You should have stayed with the customer. If an employee is stealing and getting away with it then he will continue to steal. Also make sure you have proof before to accuse that person of stealing.

That's good, though for your co-worker, if you know for sure he's stealing at all, can't you just have him fired? I know at our store that's supposed to be the case.
