Hoover, AL: Police focusing on issue of Shoplifting; Releasing a series of information on social media  Captain Gregg Rector says with Hoover being one of the biggest shopping areas in the state, shoplifting is always a concern for businesses and police. "Probably one of the primary reasons behind the shoplifting we see in our city is individuals that are funding drug habits and it's been that way for quite some time now," Rector points out. Rector also says larger retailers typically have the most success in dealing with shoplifting cases because of their ability to afford security cameras and loss prevention. The Hoover PD plans to post shoplifting-related information on its Facebook page throughout the week, including pictures of those caught in the act.
