Shomrim Apprehend Shoplifter with $200 of Soap

A shoplifter was apprehended after walking out of the Empire Kosher supermarket with over $200 worth of soap.


An Empire Kosher store worker alerted his manager after he noticed a shopper loading items into her purse and other bags, together they kept an eye on her and once she walked out of the store without bothering to pay first, they called Shomrim and began chasing her.

The shoplifter, a woman in her 30’s, was quickly cornered by a large number of Shomrim volunteers as she attempted to take refuge inside of a Jewish families home.

When police arrived the manager showed the officers the items she took, which included soaps and cleansers with a retail value of over $200, all stuffed in two different bags and even a wheeled cart. She was promptly placed under arrest.

    Not meaning to make light of theft but is this story for real? Who needs $200 worth of soap? I recently bought $6 worth and that’ll last for months.

    that rented out 4 family house has been neglected by the landlord for years.

    notice the broken railing on the stairs and beaten up door.

    the lock has been broken for ages. thats why the thief was able to enter and hide.

    imagine being home alone with the baby and this happening was only matter of time.

      I lived there for 4 years. Indeed I told the landlord he’s asking for something to happen. Trying to talk to an Israeli landlord is like banging your head against the wall.
