Shoplifting Up after Austin Plastic Bag Ban

A predictable, yet hilarious, example of the law of unintended consequences:

The Austin bag ban was implemented March 1st. FOX 7 asked Austin Police to compare citywide shoplifting incidents for the months of March, April and May and then compare them to the same time last year. March is the only month where there was no increase. In April there were 44 more incidents and 57 in May
