Foley, Alabama Police working to curb creative shoplifting; legislation on booster bags  It's no secret that Foley has become a shopping destination in the last several years. Recent additions like Academy Sports add to the already bustling Tanger Outlets and other shopping centers dotting the city. But with attractive merchandise comes people with sticky fingers looking for something free and that's where these so-call "booster bags" come into play. "Anybody that works in the retail business for any amount of time is going to find or come up on one of these at some point in their career," Captain David White said. White said that the bags have been an issue for some time, but there has been an increase in their usage in recent years. "If you possess one of these, you possess it because you're trying to do something illegal. I mean, there's no reason for anybody to have this without wanting to shoplift something," White said.
