i have this friend and he is quite idiot, he was shoplifting at a store and was caught and the store clerk escorted him to a back room. She proceeded to tell him that he was caught on camera and all this buncha' shit.
well right after giving him the spill she said she was going to the front to get the phone to call security.
when she turned her back my buddy jetted out the fire exit door in the back of the building. He made it to his car and out of the mall. He did not give the lady any information like his name etc.
He was worried about being caught on camera and all but i say he got away scott free? is their anyway he could still get in trouble? keep in mind this occurred 50 miles from his home in a diff town.
is he good haha?
If your friend does not go anywhere near that place for a long time he should be okay. Unless he made off with a Rolex, I seriously doubt the police will go to the trouble to track him down using his fingerprints and the video surveillance evidence.
But you are quite correct about your friend being a dumbass. Escaping might be the worst thing for him. The next time he may not get away so easily, especially if he escalates his behavior because he got away this time.
The guy sounds like trouble. Get a new friend. Thieves are scum.
If I want to pollute my system with malware, I'll do it the old fashioned way - Porn.
I wouldn't worry about it unless it was a valuable item, because most items aren't worth prosecuting over because it would cost more then to just let it go, also i have heard you aren't technially shoplifting until you exit the store.
i have heard that too rc7 but what he told me was he thought their was only one employee in the store but they were two. he figures the lady saw him blatantly stick it in his pocket haha..
and yeah.. it was like a 5 dollar item... so i wouldnt see the need in them pursuing it.. considering he didnt even make out with the item.
Dude don't worry about it- it's not even regulation for clerks to call security for a $5 item.
There's a number of sites with information about different stores (WalMart, for example) with different store policies (eg only security/asset protection being legally able to stop a shoplifter, only charging for stolen items over $25 or whatever) that may interest you.
Even if it was a store in your own town, there'd be no need to worry about it in the slightest (although I wouldn't recommend going back in the store for at least another year, depending on how big the store is)- even if you did steal a single rolex chances are cops wouldn't follow it up.
A town 50 miles away though? You don't have a problem at all.
Rather amateurish to get caught stealing a $5 item, however it was good that you had the balls to make a run for it (despite it not being required- you would've been slapped with a temporary store-ban and let go after they wasted your time).
Those company policies regarding theft is for the protection of employees.
I managed retail for years. And one of the companys i worked for would fire you if you even said hay stop to a theif.
You could not follow them or even try to get a plate #
no ones safety is worth whatever was stolen.
But that never stopped me. My supervisor trusted me so he told me to make sure and keep it off camera.
So be carefull there are people that say fuck policy.
And will chase you anyway.
Am I the only person wondering if his plate was caught on camera?? If it was then police would have grounds to arrest him for theft, and possibly resisting arrest.. If they do go that far then it would be pretty dang tough to come off as an upstanding citizen in court unless there is no in-store video of the event, and he's a damn good liar and can turn things around on her..
Your friend's risk/gain analysis seems a tad retarded though.. Does he spend all his money on lottery tickets?? Is that why he needs to risk arrest for $5 items??
Nah he wouldn't get resisting arrest for it, as it was just a shop attendant/asset protection that kept them in a room to grab security (ie they don't have the legal power to arrest him).

Certainly not worth their while.
Depending on where he lives, he may have been considered to be under a citizen's arrest.. Obviously he resisted that..
Yeah, He could still get in trouble, depending on the item. If it wasn't valuable then no. As long as he doesnt go around there again any time soon.
