Since you are posting this in social sciences, I will assume that you are thinking about preventing the behavior from a societal view, as opposed to loss prevention. People steal for a variety of reasons. Sometimes there are psychological reasons a person steals, such as feelings of inadequacy or an addicton to the rush, known as kleptomania. Some people steal because they want things they cannot afford to buy, whether necessities or luxuries.
