If you were making your own list of who's naughty and nice, one caveat for nice might be "don't shoplift and be greedy."

It's what got four people arrested at Lenox Square on December 18th, after police said they were caught with nearly $15,000 worth of stolen goods on Dec. 18.

Off-duty Atlanta police officers were called about a shoplifting in progress at Victoria's Secret. The officers found two people outside the store and two people inside the store -- all four had large garment bags.

“It looked like they were coordinating with each other on some of the items they were taking and putting into their bags," said Atlanta Police Sgt. John Chafee.

There are a few interesting things to note here:

1. The bags they were carrying.

“Each of them had a large garment bag and those bags were lined with a metallic liner," Chafee explained.

The bags, called booster bags, are used to dupe a store's alarm system from triggering when someone tries to leave with a sensor still attached to an item. Law enforcement is familiar with booster bags.

"Typically, they wouldn’t stand out all that much but then they’ll line them with some sort of a metallic material that will block those sensors with interacting with the store security as they walk out.”
