'Shameless' shoplifters target charity shops


Charity shops are being targeted by thieves stealing goods being sold to raise money for causes.

BBC Inside Out has uncovered shoplifters stealing from charity shops in more than 24 national and local charities operating in the Midlands.

Inside Out took shop security expert Ed Dunne and reformed thief Adrian Mason to Wolverhampton's Compton Hospice shop which is losing hundreds of pounds a week.

They look at how shoplifters are getting away with theft and give the charity shop a security 'makeover'.

Inside Out West Midlands is broadcast on Monday, 28 January on BBC One at 19:30 and nationwide on the iPlayer for seven days thereafter.
