- The number of shoplifting complaints in New York City surged to more than 63,000 last year — a 45% jump over the roughly 45,000 reported in 2021 and a nearly 275% jump compared to the mid-2000s, the statistics show.
- “People keep taking things and we can’t stop them,” one frustrated employee told The Post on Thursday inside a Lower Manhattan Target that was hit hundreds of times.
- “It’s a problem with all retail in the area. At some point, there won’t even be a store.”
