The National Retail Federation asked 125 corporations which cities ranked highest for organised shoplifting — where people don’t just steal a single item, but take in bulk and rake in the profits. The areas share a common theme: large, national roadways that provide easy access to stores and a good escape route.
The cities are:
- Los Angeles
- New York City
- San Francisco
Here’s a graph from the NRF showing what happens once thieves get their hands on stolen items:
