Shoplifting cases increase around the holidays

The holiday shopping season is in full swing and this year experts say shoplifting is on the rise.

The National Association of Shoplifting Prevention says one in eleven people are expected to go into a store and leave without paying.

This could result in a 119-billion dollar loss to retailers this year.

You may be surprised by the top five items people are stealing.

The list includes:
• Gillette Mach Four Razor Blades,
• iPhone 4
• Power tools
• Expensive liquor.
• Choice cuts of meat, mainly Filet Mignon.
