I got caught stealing from target, but they let me go?

I got caught stealing at target today at 10:30ish pm the worker asked me quickly to see a “receipt” obviously since I didn’t buy it I didn’t have one he said “make it easy” give me the shirt so I handed him the shirt and nails and Ben he said “you can go” and then I said “thank you” he didn’t take down any information, but I’m sure they took a pic of my license plate from the parking lot. Do you think the police will come to my house or will I get away with it this one time. IM NEVER GOING TO STEAL AGAIN I was scared so bad I will never shoplift again if I can’t afford something than I won’t get it. Have any of you shoplifted and got caught :(?

  • I have never shoplifted purposely although I have come out of shops without having paid for them because my daughters used to put stuff in their pushchairs when they were little. I always took them back though even if I didn't find them until I got home.

    As for you, if the guy has let you go without calling the police then I would guess there would be no further action on this occasion. But don't be surprised if you're not welcome in the shop again!

  • Once You LEAVE the Store... NO MORE.
    Never mind all of that, How can you even Think of Showing your face ibn Target again?
    It's like me today for example. I am using my other bank because I cannot face the representative my roomie yelled at to in the background on the other night.

  • I've gotten caught shoplifting, and many other things but that was a warning, they would usually hold you in the security room ask for you info search you up, maybe put some kind of scratch on your record and make you pay for it then take the item, but what you got was a warning and a very nice guy for giving it to you

  • I think they left you off. But you're probably banned from the store. Or at least on a watch list.

    Im glad you have repented. It's not worth getting criminal charges over.

    • Totally agree with you DEF not worth it and quit dumb now that I’ve been caught. I’m very great full they let me off and I will not be taking that lightly I’ll forever be great-full and I’ll never do it again.

    • You're lucky you didn't make a dumber mistake some people go down the wrong path and get caught for drugs or for example an 18 year old hooking up with a 16 year old and it follows them for life. If you ever serve jail time for an extended amount of time you're likely to never truly get out because the resitivism rates are so high.

    • I'm glad that you got a pass.

  • It's mostly because it wasn't a huge deal, no need to get the police involved. I once stole a bag of chocolate chips, didn't get caught though

  • I got caught stealing when I was like 10 and became a ward of the state until I was 18. What seemed like a small mistake made by a stupid kid pretty well ruined my entire childhood. So I'd say you got off lucky, just be grateful they didn't call the police and be sure you never do it again.

    • I’LL NEVER SHOPLIFT AGAIN IN MY LIFE I’m very great-full he didn’t do anything and let me go I was ready to get arrested as soon as he asked to see my receipt 🤧

    • Well, like I said, you're lucky. I screwed up a major part of my life just by being a stupid kid. I certainly learned my lesson though, being jerked around by the system for 8 years ensured that.

  • They might already forget that by now. by the way, you are nice :)

    • I don’t think so! 😭 I’m scared they hate me and are going to use my license plate to send me a court date or have the police track me down.

    • Relax, they will not.
      by the way, you act like you forgot to pay or not?

    • No I was stealing a shirt cause I couldn’t afford one for my new job I deserve punishment

  • You didn't actually take anything so they wouldn't have called the police.
