With Black Friday in the books and Christmas right around the corner, retailers all over are gearing up for the busy holiday shopping season.  As more people come and go from local stores, the threat of commercial theft is a major concern for retailers and police. "Some people think 'oh I can get away with it' or 'I've gotten away with it several times,'” said APD Spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker.  “Well sooner or later, you will be caught, I guarantee it.” During the holiday season, statistics show that retail crime rates increase by 30%.  Just last year, the National Retail Federation reported that 95% of stores have been victimized by retail crime.
