This week's cover story | Shoplifting in Chicago
Here's a sneak peek at what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:
- TOC contributing writer Marcia Froelke Coburn goes on a mock shoplifting trip with a woman who beats the sensors by stuffing items in a special bra, goes on a mall shoplifting sting with the State Attorney's office and spends time in a secret warehouse where Walgreens keeps loot the retail giant has nabbed back from thieves. The result: a fascintating report on the latest techniques shoplifters are using, and the new technology police are employing to combat them.
- When Spike TV starts airing local MMA fighter Pat Curran's bouts, his killer finishing move will surely make him a star. Not to mention his disarming good looks.
- TOC's associate photo editor Martha Williams tells the story of getting hopelessly lost searching for a tucked-away waterfall on her honeymoon in Vietnam. Not surprisingly, the photos are gorgeous.
