Caught Red Handed is an American reality television series that portrays reenactments of shoplifting crimes on truTV that debuted on November 5, 2012.

Premise[edit]

Caught Red Handed takes a close look at the daily life of loss-prevention agents as they apprehend shoplifting suspects.[1] In May 2012, the producers issued a casting call for actors to portray shoplifters on the show.[2] At the end of each show, the credits reveal that the show consists of "reenactments inspired by true events."[3][4][5]
