Last month while working at my job in an overstock warehouse for a distributor, I stole several thousand dollars worth of new computers all at once. We have several buildings for housing different types of items, and we organize inventory based on accessibility and demand. We have color-code strips of tape that quickly designate which warehouse on the lot a pallet of product goes to. Of course everything is still barcoded, but the lift operators depend on the tape strips to quickly know which warehouse to move them too. I went through inventory and changed the tape color on some expensive tech pallets to yellow, which would place them in a warehouse that on that day had little to no traffic. I also printed some erroneous endpoint shipping codes and placed them over the originals. They get scanned every time a pallet enters another warehouse so they know where they're going. When product turns up missing it will be discovered that some pallets were set to be shipped to a wrong address. I had previously shut off the cameras in the warehouse the pallets went to. Later I loaded a rental van and drove them one by one to a storage container. I had to unpack the pallets and move the equipment by hand into storage because I didn't have a lift offsite. It took some planning and sweat work but I've calculated the theft at roughly $6800 wholesale. Retail would be a few times over that, but I can probably make 10k after they're all fenced.
