    Man steals penis pump from sex shop, owner posts security cam pic of thief in store

    A Wellington sex store owner is defending his "name and shame" tactics after posting a photo of a man, suspected of shoplifting a penis pump, in his shop window.


    The Erox Lifestyle Centre, on the corner of Vivian and Cuba streets, has caught the eye of passers-by for not the usual reasons after staff put up the photo. A security footage photo features a man who allegedly put the $109.95 sex aid under his hoodie and left the shop without paying. A note above the photo says: "When will he pay for the penis pump he stole?"

    Auckland-based Erox director John Frew said he was fed up with shoplifting from his nine North Island stores and the recently employed tactic had resulted in several people returning to pay for stolen items.

    Shoplifting was usually reported to police, but he had found that unless the thief was instantly recognised by officers, cases were not followed up.

    "Shoplifting tends to be at the bottom of the priority list for police. All I want is the man who accidently put the penis pump up his jumper and left the store to come back and pay for it."

    Mugshots of suspected shoplifters were also posted online. The company's website featured security photos of another five people who allegedly took items from other stores.

    Mr Frew said security cameras had only recently been installed in his two Wellington shops and the alleged penis pump thief was the capital's first to grace his wanted list.

    Wellington lawyer John Edwards, who specialises in privacy law, said the tactic was risky and delved into a grey area of law. The man in the photo could possibly sue for defamation. "Mind you, truth is complete defence against defamation, so if this guy has taken the penis pump then it is unlikely to stand up in court."

    Using security footage to deter shoplifting pushed privacy boundaries but was defendable, he said.

    Consumers Institute chief executive David Russell said if the retailer correctly identified the shoplifter then that person was "fair game".

    I wish more stores would come up with plans like this. Including better cameras.

    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    it is a good idea. bet he will not steal any more penis pumps from that store.


    "A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
    Ben

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

    You said it - A lot of the camera footage I see on the news is garbage - I don't know how a jury, or even the perp's own mother, could ID a suspect from some of those images
