A brazen shoplifter picked the wrong target when she attempted to walk out of a women’s clothing boutique with an armful of merchandise and was met with physical resistance, as Tiger TV reports.

In a cell phone video of the altercation (see below), Abby Bullock, the owner of the Wanderlust By Abby shop in Baton Rouge, LA, is seen struggling with the thief to take back her merchandise.

“I got every single thing from her,” Bullock told the outlet. “It added up to be like $650 worth of stuff, which for big companies isn’t a big deal, but for a small business, it’s huge.”

Bullock called the incident a learning experience and said she has taught her employees how to handle shoplifters.

“I started this store from the back of my Forerunner, and it’s just grown, and I’ve put in so much work, so every little piece of this store is literally a part of me,” she said.
