“Gotcha!” has never been so satisfying, as brazen shoplifters are Caught Red Handed this December on beTV. This provocative, caught-on-video series features fed-up store owners who enlist the help of professional “loss prevention agents” to take down shoplifters attempting to rob them blind. These bold bandits don’t realize that their every move is being watched as they execute their shoplifting acts. More outrageous than the crimes themselves are the criminals’ attempts to claim innocence – even in the face of video evidence. Caught Red Handed premieres on December 31 and will air from Monday to Thursday at 7:40pm.
