What is the Crime of Possessing an Anti-Shoplifting Device?
Possession of an anti-shoplifting device is often linked to the crime of retail theft – commonly known as shoplifting, which is not a legal term.
An anti-shoplifting or inventory control device is anything that is designed, made, or modified to remove or defeat any device that detects shoplifting.
Retail theft is a crime that includes stealing merchandise, property, money, removing labels and product codes or price tags – or even taking a shopping cart – with the intent to deprive the merchant of the use, benefit or full retail value of the merchandise.

CONSEQUENCES OF POSSESSING AN ANTI-SHOPLIFTING DEVICE IN FORT LAUDERDALE
Possession of an anti-shoplifting device in South Florida is considered to be a very serious crime, making it vital to enlist the help of an experienced attorney in this situation. Possession of an anti-shoplifting device is an automatic felony which has its own severe consequences without the addition of another charge.
If the attempted stolen property is used with an anti-shoplifting device and valued at more than $750, then the crime is a form of grand theft (felony). If the stolen property is used with an anti-shoplifting device and valued at less than $750, then the crime is a form of petit theft (misdemeanor).
