New Jersey Malls With Most Shoplifting Arrests
New Jersey is not only the most densely populated states in our nation, but it also one of the wealthiest states with some of the highest household incomes in the country. This equates to dozens of large malls and shopping centers throughout in New Jersey to handle the demand of our residents and nearby New York. However, all this comes with a price – as New Jersey also has some of the highest sales taxes and average cost of living in the U.S. With some much economic pressure also comes stress and sometimes even desperation which can sometimes lead good people to make bad choices. One of the most common criminal charges in New Jersey is shoplifting – which can involve anything from taking a piece of gum without paying for it to a large scale and organized retail theft ring involving tens of thousands of dollars worth of stolen merchandise.
For purposes of this section we will focus on certain malls and shopping centers that not only conduct a high volume of sales in New Jersey but also, from our experience, prosecute a high number of alleged shoplifters each year. The following shopping centers and malls are listed in no particular order.
