The Sheriff of Sacramento County has accused Target of obstructing efforts to prevent shoplifting, despite the store seeking assistance with rampant retail crime.

Target reportedly imposed strict rules on how deputies were allowed to arrest suspects, aiming to avoid negative press.

“We don’t tell big retail how to do their jobs, they shouldn’t tell us how to do ours,” Sheriff Jim Cooper posted. (Trending: Supreme Court Dismisses Case To Keep Trump Off Ballot)

“At the briefing, we were told by their head of regional security that we could not contact suspects inside the store; we could not handcuff suspects in the store; and if we arrested someone, they wanted us to process them outside… behind the store… in the rain,” the sheriff added, emphasizing that he couldn’t “can’t make this stuff up.”

“We were told they didn’t want to create a scene inside the store and have people film it and put it on social media. They didn’t want negative press. Unbelievable,” he went on.

The statement comes as a study by the National Retail Federation highlighted Sacramento as one of the top cities affected by organized retail crime.

The sheriff criticized Target for ignoring theft incidents, citing an example of a woman shoplifting body washes.

“Our deputies watched a lady on camera bring in her own shopping bags, go down the body wash isle [sic], and grab a bunch of Native body washes. Then she went to customer service and return them! Target chose to do nothing and simply let it happen,” he pressed.

“Yet somehow, locking up deodorant and raising prices on everyday items we need to survive is their best answer,” Cooper pressed.

Target has not yet responded to these allegations.
