Pickpockets paradise

Seems like the cameras are monitoring the shelves to see who picks up and puts back what and then assumes they walk out and are happy to pay for it. All very well till some ne're-do-wells realize the cameras are not monitoring them pinching stuff from other peoples trolleys.

Almost as hopeless as letting you buy watermelons at the self-checkout and not figuring out that it's a case of vodka and not a watermelon you've just put on the scales.
