When small business owners face massive losses of liquor at the hands of criminal theft rings, waiting for law enforcement to carry out and complete their investigation could potentially bankrupt the business. Even though gaining the partnership of local law enforcement will put a more permanent stop to the theft, bottle locks and liquor bottle security will help maintain the store’s profitability until the ring’s mastermind can be stopped.
Dissolving a crime ring is actually a fairly simple process. What hurts the small business is the amount of time it takes to come to fruition.
A task force sets up surveillance in a shop. They wait for the thieves to steal the liquor bottles, and then they are followed. The hope is that the shoplifters lead them directly to the buyers.
It will take several thefts and buys to establish a pattern. In the mean time, the business is out all of the liquor being stolen. In some cases, that liquor is held as evidence until the trial is completed. That could be several months, or even a few years before the business actually gets any of it’s product back.
By using bottle locks and liquor bottle security methods, you start to reduce the ease a shoplifter can get your merchandise out of the store. They will start to bypass your store as a target and go somewhere else that has lesser liquor bottle security.
