Whenever I use an Aldi or Lidl there is generally no one on the tills or 1 person on 1 till, no one else near that end of the shop at all, to be able to steal this much I guess it was a similar situation.

I've been in that store when a guy walked out with his arms full of goods and it took the young girl on the till to challenge him. He said he had a receipt and walked out in a hurry. The security guard didn't bat an eyelid. Not the best candidate you want guarding your store.
