Around 15 males were seen to be taking headphones and other electronic equipment from stores in Chadstone, South Yarra, Carnegie and Highett on a busy Saturday night in November 2016. 

It’s likely that the Beats headphones were targeted as they are worth upwards of $400 a pair. Police inspector David Griffin has warned retailers to be vigilant saying “It’s certainly a message to Officeworks stores and other retail stores that stock this equipment that they might like to tighten their security.”

Witnesses told of the gang simply walking into the stores and ‘grabbing items at will before leaving the store cheering and lifting the items they’d stolen above their heads’.

In periods like school holidays and Christmas, retail outlets are crowded, staff are busy or distracted and this environment creates prime opportunities for thieves.


Retailers can increase staff numbers in these periods and provide additional training on retail security and what to do in the case of theft attempts however, having a visible deterrent like a retail security system combined with the J-plug Loop is a great way to ensure that stock doesn’t walk out the door.

There is one area however that many businesses loathe as it’s something that strikes at the heart of their business and costs Australian retailers over $2.5 billion dollars a year ( source ). What’s worse is that shrinkage seems to be on the rise with a 16% increase over the past two years (according to respondents from The Australia and New Zealand Retail Crime Survey 2019). When combined, both customer theft (shoplifting or shop stealing) and dishonest employees (internal theft) account for just under 80% of overall theft.
