Sadly, I have also had people steal fish. We caught one guy with bags of water in his trench coat. Another had taken a clown trigger which, unfortunately, didn't bite him in his leg before we caught him. Another got caught when the green bird wrasse, he stuck in a bag in his pants, jumped out at the register. People will do all kinds of crazy things and I can only imagine, with the prices of today's stock, it has only gotten worse. It's a sad state of affairs.

Agreed. But if you knew she had stolen before, why was she allowed back in?

That is truly disgusting. I'm not a fan of anyone stealing, I can see one doing it out of a need such as food, clothing, ect. But stealing out of want is crazy! Geez, have some self respect.

And I thought robbing a gas station for Mountain Dew was weird....... But seriously though, this really is surprising. Glad you still caught her in her car, good job! Ridgeland PD arrest man charged in robbery | Jasper County Sun Times

So we set up the camera system after the first incident because my boss was getting paranoid. We both knew she was the only one in between us seeing the coral and me leaving but there was no proof and we just couldn't imagine someone putting it in their bag. We didn't want to believe she stole.

This was just the final proof... We think the times before she was just taking small zoo frags. This time I had just finished re-organizing most of the corals so pretty much every frag rack had 5x5 displays so it would of been obvious if she yanked one. And she did and it was obvious haha.

You're right though, we should of just knew it was her and handled it then.
