Scott and Connie's Thief Tales(01:47)
At a bustling gourmet grocery store in New York, Scott and Connie prove that sometimes the least suspicious-looking people can make off with enough merchandise to leave their client in a real pickle.
To find security flaws in a family-owned grocery store in an affluent Long Island, N.Y., town, Scott and Connie pose as locals to see how much food they can openly consume and conceal without being stopped. After feasting in the aisles, they decide to see if they can push a full cart of groceries right past the unsuspecting cashiers without paying for them.
At an iconic candy store in New York's Lower East Side, shoplifting happens by the handful every day and the father and son owners don't think it's so sweet. But when Scott and Connie find colorful ways to distract the staff, their clients see for themselves how quickly small items can add up to much bigger losses.
At the largest liquor store in the state of New Jersey, profits are being guzzled as fast as the booze. But it takes some particularly brazen shoplifters to show Scott and Connie how intoxicatingly serious the problem is at this discount alcohol store.
