Business makes examples of thieves

Posted: Updated:

A store in Beaumont's Parkdale Mall is making customers think twice about stealing.

Precious Times sells dresses and formal wear for events like proms and pageants. A closer look around the store shows surveillance photos of people accused of shoplifting.

The store has been in business for about five years. Assistant Manager Jazmin Castillo said the owner has been placing pictures of thieves around the store for almost as long as it's been open.

She said it has been effective in discouraging people from stealing. The store does give thieves a chance to redeem themselves and have their pictures removed.

The owner is willing to work out a payment plan.

However, as long as merchandise is not paid for the picture will remain posted.
