What To Do? – Prevent Shoplifting

One of my employees was talking to me about a shoplifting incident they saw, but they didn’t know what to do about it. She was watching a customer trying on different pairs of earrings and went over to offer her assistance.
The woman quickly said she didn’t need anything, turned around and left. My employee started to clean up the mess this customer left behind. We don’t have a real good inventory control system or EAS devices designed specifically for jewelry and accessories.
The woman had taken several pairs of earrings off the cards, and everything was in a jumble on the counter. As my employee sorted through everything, she noticed that there were two pairs of earrings missing, and the customer looked like she was wearing one of them.
It was a difficult position for my employee to be in. She was probably right in her suspicions that the customer had walked off with at least one if not two pairs of our earrings.
Because we didn’t actually see what happened from the beginning it was too hard to actually tell if this was just a repeat customer who had purchased the earrings previously, or if she did steal them.
