Many New Yorkers were stunned to see the cheapest canned meats and fish on grocery store shelves now in protective plastic containers.

Such containers, the key to which the cashier has, are difficult to open or break, and they are usually equipped with a chip that signals at the exit from the store that the goods have not been paid for, that is, stolen.

Typically, such containers sell expensive, popular trifles with thieves – razor blades, deodorants, medicines, portioned bottled alcohol.

But now canned food, the cost of which is $ 2-3 per can, is needed protection, reports NYP.

The owners and managers of the stores took this measure after they did not count large volumes of canned food. They believe that high inflation is pushing people to steal, due to which many are now unable to buy even the cheapest food.

In the first half of 2021, crime rates in New York rose in six of the seven major categories. Petty theft complaints in Manhattan are up 52% ​​from last year.
