Parts of several Swedish cities are no-go areas for the "Polis", and the city of Malmö is inhabited largely by recent immigrants with little respect for Swedish law. See for example http://www.dailywire.com/news/12466/how-muslim-migration-made-malmo-sweden-crime-michael-qazvini
I seem to remember a criminal gang taking over a petrol station, locking the staff in the toilets, and running it on a cash only basis for several hours. They reduced the fuel cost to encourage people to fill up, and only took cash. Very similar to this.
Is shoplifting still a crime ............?
It was reported recently that the police would not do anything if the value of the item(s) stolen was less than £50. You can still get an awful lot of sweets for that amount, and now no criminal record - or even a slap on the wrist - for it.
