Photos: Here's What Aurora Did to These Twenty Shoplifters

More photos below.
Black Friday marks the official start of the holiday shopping season -- and presumably also the holiday shoplifting season. With that in mind, the Aurora Police Department is sending a simple seasonal message: "Shoplift in Aurora and go to jail!" Those are the first words in a new APD Facebook post stressing that shoplifters in Aurora are frequently booked into the city's detention center, rather than receiving a summons and being released. A note adds that some of those convicted of the crime even had their vehicles seized.
