25. Not in all states. Certainly not in Kentucky.
I don't know about other states, but here simply concealing an item while in the store constitutes shoplifting. I saw dozens of people arrested for shoplifting while woring at a comic book/used CD store and none had left the building or made any attempt to do so.

According the security guard and the cops, they figure a person is much more likely to become violent or resist when detained outside a store or at the door and only a few steps from freedom so they encourage confronting them well within the confines of the store.
