I once shoplifted 5 bras - all under my clothes! They were so pretty and so expensive - and thank god they didn't have security tags.
i once stole but it was by accident i was waiting in a 7-eleven for a freind and when they came i just left with the slurpee i was planning on paying for.
When I was little I stole a container of glitter from the store. I pretended to tie my show and slipped it in my sock.
yes! a mascara at a dept store i know its bad but a was 14 years old
i steal all the time, hundreds of dollars worth.
When I was younger I would try on bras and keep the new ones on and put my old one in the box.Horrible, I know, but I was a kid, a punk one would say!lol
I did, I still do and I never got caught.
When I was a child, I once saw a small bar of soap carved in the shave of a small rose. I thought it looked really pretty. I picked it up and held it in my hand while I walked around the store with my mom. I didn't realize I still had the soap in my hand until we were driving away from the store. I was so scared that I hid it from my mom. The next time we visited that store, I put it back. *^_^*
I steal small things from my friends all the time. I don;t know why I do it. I ask to borrow it and just never give it back.
Do you mean have I ever shoplifted anything? No. I've never felt the need to do anything like that. Although when I was younger, 14, 15, 16, 17, I've been in stores where the proprietors have watched me like a hawk thinking that because I was a teenager I was likely to take something and not pay for it.I was once short changed at a store when I was 14 by a store owner who thought that I wouldn't notice but my mother noticed and we haven't been in that store since.
i stole a little box of condoms when i was 17 bcuz i was to embarassed to go to the counter and pay for them. luckily i didnt get caught.
I used to steal when I was 16,17,18,19,Then I reilized it is very wromg and making all prices go up even higher. But I did steal about $1500.00 of clothes and jewellery and make up weekly.It became addictive and I was so good at it I got the name "Five Finger Discount" It was hard to stop and remember , in life whatever you do will come back to you many times over!! Trust me !!I desirve it too.
i have never shoplifted beforei was always the one that was to scared to get caghtyes i got picked onbut when my friends got cuaght and they searched me and i had othingi was still allowed in the mall
My god, you people are stupid.
only once...i was 13...i was in love with corey hart...i went into the local Woolco and stole the album cover of his 45 'never surrender'...i left the 45 and just took the album cover...stayed on my bedroom wall for years!
im adicted to stealing sumtimes when i dont steal i get mad after cuz i cudof got it and i wud of had sumthing to wear the next day
I used to shoplift all the time and my friends would even have tricks on how to remove those ink tags. That was a long time ago and it was because we wouldn't have the money. Why does everything got to cost so much?
I never really shop lifted, but when eveyone was a kid they shoft lifted and maybe didn't know about it XD
ahahaha... grade 11, standing in line to pay for a chocolate bar, i got distracted and left with my friends. i realized when we got on the bus, and wanted to go back and pay for it, my friends told me it would be worse, and i never did get caught , but the place had posters of people they had caught on cam....
When I was 10 years old me and my bros and sis went to safeway all the time by ourselves as it was so close to our home and we would take candy out of the bulk bins and got away with it until one day when we left the store this man came after us and asked to see what we had in our pockets we were so scared I could hardly breathe. He brought us back to his office and told us that he was going to call the police on us if we didn't go home and tell our parents. So we agreed and when we got home we told them and we were grounded for three months. the guy who caught us said that he was going to call our parents later on, he never did and thats how he tricked us into telling our parents. Damn adults and their more advanced brains!!!!! LOL.
I was at the grovery store and I picked up and apple to buy, but it was so good I started eating it. At the cash I was planning on paying for it but it just...slipped my mind!
Yeah, I steal. It sucks. I steal out of greed and need. I'm a single mother with 2 kids. The pay doesn't go far enough, there's no child support and no boyfriend. I'm not justifying, believe me. I know it's wrong. I steal because I have to. Food, clothes, make-up; I can't afford it. I habitually steal to get by. And yes, I've been caught (3 times in 12 years), and all 3 times were recent because of better security measures. I would make an excellent store detective- I know all the tricks! But anyway, I steal from huge department stores and warehouse-type stores only, no little ones. This makes me feel better. Then after, I get to go home and look in the mirror, and be ashamed. Is it worth it? For my kids-yes and no. For myself-never. I would NOT do it if I had no kids. I curse my ex for putting me in this position. Ladies, be careful! If you DO get caught, they WILL embarrass and humiliate you. They WILL ask personal questions. You will squirm...I guarantee. I'm as tough as nails, and I squirm, and I cried (albeit afterwards). But still...NO it's a crappy bad-karma thing to do. Trust me. Get a man to buy it for you, whatever it is you want so bad, you're willing to steal for it. That's all. Peace out.
yes when i waz living on the streets it waz only for a week or so ..any wayz..i took food and tampons..from the A&P..but i feel bad about it now....
WHEN I WAS 6 I TOOK A LIPGLOSS AND THEN MY DAD WALKED OUT OF THE DOOR AND I BEEPED AT I DROPPED IT AND RAN TO MY DAD AND IT SEEMED THAT THE REGESTED LADY FROGOT TO PUT THE PRICE ON SOMETHIG. I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT SHOPLIFTING
When I was 5, I was shopping with my mom and my mom turned her back for a moment - I wanted to show her a pretty keychain and since she wasn't paying attention to me, I slipped it in my pocket so that when i got her attention again I could show her and she would buy it for me. Well, I got her attention when i got home and she told me she was going to drag me back have the policemen take me away for stealing. I had completely forgotten about the keychain in my pocket! That was scary for a 5 year old.. never did it again.
dear people who still shoplift a lot(like kendra), what goes around comes around & ur karma points r probaly in the minuses, u r screwed up.Get A Life.(& DONT steal it!)
When I was 14 I was hanging around at the mall. I stole a lipgloss [measly, I know] and now that I think about it, it wasn't really all that worth it - it sucked. I didn't get caught, but that wasn't the point.
I have never shop lifted. I once had a friend whos little sister would steal items from stores all the time though! She would steal candy, chocolate, gum. -Lame, I know! but we were ten, and she was nine. She never did get caught, then again how would I know? I haven't seen them in years. (I'm 14 now)
Used to when I was younger...heck, probably still would now if I didn't fear the consequences.
if I steal I'll usually buy something too, so I don't feel as bad :) :(
Yes, I shop lifted when I was 11 years old at Woolsworth. It was my girlfriends idea and we got caught. I never shop-lifted again. I am now 54 years old.
i am 76 Years old ,i never ever shoplifted anything and today i am glad about it ,i can look in the Mirror at myself and dont feel bad ,this is worth more to me than anything ,it's called selfrespect
Yes, I do it more than I like to admit. But, about a year ago I got caught. That was a real drag, I stole 2 mascaras,less then 25bucks. The cops were called and the security guard was even told by the cop that he didn't have to charge me but, he did anyway.I got 6 months probation and 15hrs community service. My 5 finger days are over now.
Yes and I got caught and court was such an embarrassing, humiliating and degrading experience, that it would never even cross my mind to do it again.
ATTENTION SHOPLIFTERS!!!!!I can't help but to wonder where your head is? I am part of a loss prevention team and would like to draw your attention to something...Just because you have not been caught that one time doesn't mean that you won't be the next time. Chances are that your behaviour was observed and recorded and they will be watching for you next time. Our words to live by "they'll be back" That kind of info and pics are shared with the team and everyone is then on the look out. Elvira....I feel for you that you are in a bad situation but there are plenty of ways that you can get assistnce for yourself and your children without shoplifting. Soon that petty shoplifing charge will become a little more serious if you get caugt enough times, then what about your kids?Kendra...I hope we meet someday
You may think you are good, but we are better. You may get away with it today, maybe even tomorrow, but one day you will get too greedy, too C***y and you will be arrested. You will be charged, you will have a criminal record. That means no good job, no travel outside the country, no loans from a bank, and respect from anyone who knows you.
I used to steal all the time when i was younger im guessing over 5000$ worth of crap useless crap then i got caught stealing 2$ worth of candy so now i have a criminal record i lost a 15$ an hour job because of my record it did come back and bite me in the butt so everyone else GROW UP
i stole a thong when i was 14 because my mom would get it for me hahah.
yup i shop lifted nail poilish when i was 14. years ago. i dont kno why, i geuss because i was sick of being such a good girl...haha(im rolling my eyes at my self)
I once sshop lifted in walmart Lol andd ardene styles i wtoel a ring and a lip stick thingy it was no big deal
ok the B*** whos telling everybody to sstop stealingg shut up sirisouly get a life its not that peoepl are pooor thats just what you do liek my friends rrich as hell but still steal its just somehitng to do without using money its alright gals Have fun stealing lmao
Once when I was about 10 years old me and my mother (who happend yo be very broke at the time!) went to nofrills and went grocery shopping... I have a candy bar worth 79 cents and I almost walked by with it! I totally forgot and ran to the register to pay for it:) The person tehre was pleased:P Also me and my mom (who was sngle) lived on about 22,000 a year! and never ever ever have we shoplifted and I am never in my life, not even if I don't have a penny, planning to shoplift because it is so pathetic!
i agree,shoplifting is pathetic.
When I was 6 or 7 I tried to steal a box of Jell-O at a grocery store. I was with my babysitter at the time, and she caught me and made me put it back.Just goes to show how bad of a shoplifter I could have been as an adult!
i shoplift silly little trinkets from claires and ardene because they're just really really easy to take from.. ALL THE TIME. seriously, they're remarkably easy. i walked into claires, tried on a headband, looked at myself in the mirror on the ceiling, decided i liked it, and walked out. stuff like that.
honestly wuts the gratification of stealing?!?!?! you ppl obviously have no self respect....i can see doing it the first time because of curiousity or peer pressure but doing it many times after because you just want to is stupid
It's the adrenaline rush. I'm in security and I still can't help it. Every time I do it, I risk my career. But it's an addiction. As is catching the other people who steal from my store.
I have never stolen except sumtimes when I work 9am to 9pm Ill take a piece of pizza from work and not pay.
OMG thank god i never got caught !!you know those stuffed toys called webkinz. well my daughter wanted one and i told her she couldn't get one so she mopped around for a while and then i did it i found one that she really like hid it in my hands and then i stole the secret code and ripped off the price tag and stuck the toy behind some books
No Never...Its just so wrong!
Yes. bubblegum, headbands,clothes,a pair of shoes,sunglasses,and a bracelet.mostly just small stuff but i won't do it again because karma caught up to me.
gina, your right about evlira but still if you got stuck in a situation like that you would be doing the same thing. I garuntee. So shut up!Hey Bill, dont brag about how good you are cause your not! So stopgood luck to all yeah guys ;)
Its actually become such an addiction!! i recently stole an $80 dress just because i liked it, but not enough to actually pay for it. and i stole a shirt the day before ($40) and it wasnt even for me. i seen it, and im like, oh wow, that is so (insert friends name here) and i grabbed it for her! my mom even knows about it, and says i wont stop until i get caught. which i really dont wana do! but.. its so worth it to have nice expensive clothes and not have to pay for it... eeek!
Really, some people who are sitting there cutting these people up for stealing... if you try to tell me what you've never stole anything in your life, u can bite my ass, cuz thats a lie. Never steal from locally owned stores, because those workers depend on it to live. but stores like walmart, or stores in the mall.. they are huge brands, and if u think about how much we give and give to society and the government, id say they owe us. and if we can outsmart them, then more power to us! we should be able to keep it, wear it and not feel guilty!
I use to work at Ardene's when I was younger and yeah it is easy to steal from there and get away with it. However, did you know that Ardene rewards their employees for catching theifs. I once got a 50 dollar bonus. I worry when people are so casual about stealing. I would find empty cases every day and its so defeating to think that moral and standards are so low for some people.If you think so low of yourself continue to steal I suppose but I do hope you get caught and charged.
I was a teenager and stupid. Received a criminal record (over 16) Received a pardon but it still haunts me to this day. Especially now! Did you know that the US is stopping people from entering the states even with a Canadian Pardon?Dear Blow it out your...You are a complete idiot if you think stealing from large corporations doesn't affect anyone. Who the hell do you think is going to pay for what you steal? It always gets charged back to the consumer. Usually with price increases. I bet when you shake your head, you can hear the rattle of your puny brain!
never shoplifted but i've empty enveloped the atm machines to get money a couple of times
im 14 and it was my very first time shoplifting. i stole a lip gloss. i guess it was just curiosity ? but i probably will never do it again becuz i feel guilty.
I can't belive that there's people out there who steal! Dont you people know sooner or later you will get caught and have this on your record? or is the dignty and self pride?
every morning wen i woke up i use to feel and have this tempting feeling about the good stuff i would have if i go to the mall.. all good perfumes.. lipsticks.. bras.. shirts.. night wears.. etc..but jus yesterday i got caught at zellers..thats not it.. i have been charged and god knows whats coming in the letter by civil court next week or so..i have been crying whole night.. and i am soo guilty that i feel like dying.. i am having tears and typing all this..i cant jus forget how that humiliated me .. by askin 1000z of questions.. takin my id and makin me sign all the paperz.. clicking my pic.. i some how managed..that they dont call for police as this was my 1st time.. but they still gave me a ticket ... i have a bad record and i cant get a good job, apply for immigration here in canada.. and i don think that wd be b4 atleast a pardon or guilty plead.. lets see wat happens.. this is a lesson for me ..i wil never steal again!
not a good thing to do
it is a a horrible thing when you get caught
There are absolutely people who have never stolen anything - I am one of them.To the person who puts empty envelopes in the ATM - eventually you will get caught and you will have no credit and the bank will freeze your deposits until verified, they will put a limit on how much money you can withdraw in a day and you can be charged with fraud - I know someone who was caught doing this.
I wouldn't even consider it today (I am 24 now) but back in highschool I would all the time. It was a really bad habit and we thought we were invincible. we would take hundreds of dollars worth of clothing from everywhere. we even had codes "is it expensive?" meant it had a security tag on it and not to take it. we would even ask the store clerks for empty bags and use them to fill up in other stores. we would grab designer perfume right from the sample bottles and walk right out with them easily. we would go to grocery stores at lunch and take whatever we wanted and bring it back to school. we would take hair dye, makeup, books everything. for over a year this went on. till finally i was caught in sears and charged as an adult because I had just turned 18. the only good part is my parents never found out. I have never stolen anything since.
When I worked at a major bookstore chain, I knew that the security system at the doors didn't work. I got a part-time job around Xmas when I was pretty broke and managed to steal all kinds of little gifts, including expensive chocolates, pretty teas and lotions and mini books which I used as Xmas presents. The first time was pretty exciting, and I wasn't sure what I'd do if I got caught, but I never did. I figured that it was fair considering how little they paid me. I haven't stolen anything since then but I think that has more to do with having a better paying job and a more interesting life now.
yes im addicted to shoplifting. I just got caught at walmart for using their bags to make it look like I paid for the products. needless to say the store manager was not happy when I told him I used their bags to steal. Im a stone faced person,but I cried when I was caught, only because they beat me at this game. I don't feel bad- so any of you who are without sin can cast the first stone...I dare you!
I shoplift all the time. It is addicting. I really enjoy the rush when I get a lot of stuff for nothing. I feel horrible all the time after the fact though. I look at myself and my children and think to myslef about all of the stolen stuff we are wearing. i am no small time. stove, clothes, all baby stuff including crib, parfumes ( this is a small list). The sad thing about it is, i feel ashamed once I get home. Not ashamed enough to take it back though. I kill groceriy stores. i will make out my grocery list and go grocery shoplifting. Because I am on a limited income has nothing to do wuth it. For those who say that they do it because they don't have a man or because they are simply in need. that is BS. You like the rush. Life's necessities are really not the hard to obtain. My children and I or my husband do not need for anything really. yet, I want my children to be in the best, I want my house to have the best, I want to be in the best and the latest. I actually consign my clothes and my children's. go figure. Their security tags do not stop me. I have been doing this for years, I have been caught 3 times over a 20 + years. Each one was avoidable. I don't want to do it anymore and I think that all the time but yet, I cant stop. For those that did it when they were young and quit....kudos. For those of you that nevr have, God bless....and those of you that were humiated enough to quit and not have the desire...I commend you. For those of you that are thinking about it....don't start. my background record has effected me and my family and that hurts. For those of you that do, i hope that you get the will power to quit and no longer have the desire. You will no longer have to look over your shoulder. I don't want to see anybpdy get in trouble, including my self.Loss prevention processes change everyday. There are new anti thft devices created everyday. You will get caught. beilieve it or not, my family and I go to church every Sunday if God is willing. I am always thinking about what I do or am about to do. It is living a double life. in the end, it is not fun.
When I was 11, I saw those cute little trident gum packs, where you can mix and match the flavors. It was sweet 'n sour strawberry, i wanted it so i put it in my pocket. i felt really bad because my mom later asked me if i wanted to buy something.
I stole a bunch, walmart, target, department stores... mostly. I was so good... had it down to a system, chatted up the security people on my way out with $500. stolen merchandise in my bag. One day, I walked into a store, took a bottle of perfume and some jewelry and was the same as ever... walked out and got busted. I did what I always did, and had been doing for years. just this one time and I got fined and charged. Amazing, still shocked about it. I will never do it again. I was good, and they knew it. YOU WILL GET CAUGHT!!! TRUST ME! I spoke with the cop about how I thought I was really good, he said I was... but it was still stealing, and there is nothing 'good' about it, so it's easy to catch.
I just got caught for shoplifting at sears..i definatly only did it because of peer pressure. i will never do it asgain though. i got arrested and charged and now i have to go to court. So if u dont think u will get caught u will trust me.
Shoplifting is never a good thing. No matter what the intention is; it doesn't benefit the manufacturers or yourself.For those addicted to shoplifting, I'm pretty disgusted. You're just screw ing up your future. Sure, small petty things aren't very big but as many people have stated, you WILL get too greedy some day and get caught.What comes around goes around. (And that song is addictive too XD).It's not worth it to steal lip gloss, be caught and then sent to jail. Not very good looking on that resume.And I would never EVER shoplift. Never even considered the possibility.
I am doing research for a speech class and came upon this site. First of all I am a 21-year-old college student who works for Sears retail store. I am telling everyone on here that they are insane for shoplifting. The avg. shoplifter spends the same amount of money as the avg. buyer. If ALL shoplifting would stop everyone could save 2,000 dollars due to the mark ups to count for the theft you all are doing. I hope all that think they are good come to my store cause I promise you WILL eventually get caught. Maybe not the first, second or third, BUT You will get caught. You can't keep doing wrong and getting away with it.
Ok for everyone who steals im with you its a hard habbit to break i know ive been caught three times and i still do it. I hope you can recover and stop soon thats all i can say. :)Hot Chick i totally agree with you!Bill you need to shut it. You think you are all high and mighty cause you catch people in the act, congrats look what you have done with your life you are working in a dept. store.gina you too i hope you look through to the other side and think about what people are goin through. or just keep your mouth closed.
ok this is so true, and im not lying...everytime i go into the dollar tree, i steal probably $50 worth like 20 snickers, auto treatment...the place has no alarm system so is an easy steal...im an addict, also everytime i go into a store like walmart i have to take something like auto accesories..i recently got a screwdriver set,an alan wrench set, maybe 10 key chains, and a lint brush..i once went into a hot topic, and drop-kicked someone in the face and grabbed there bag of clothes and "booked"..that was a rush...another time a soda machine was hassling me so i smashed the glass and grabbed about 15 bottles of vault...thats vandaism? not to me...then, i wanted some jewlry from sears so i dressed up like a female and grabbed all the watches/neckaces/braclets i can...finally last night i was watching shoplifting caught on tape, and i realized i wanted to go get some cigaretts at the store but had no money..and they keep them behind the counter, so i had my uncle buy me some, and ya ill bee back for more stories because i have a huge fetish for some candy right now! im off to dollar tree -bye
i feel so bad for shoplifting todayi dont know waht i was thinking!!lesson learnt: I WILL NEVER EVER DO THAT AGAIN
...Well..I stole today. I probably can't go back to the store I stole from, huh.
today i got caught at walmart shoplifting becuss my dad threatend me if i diddnt help him hed leave me. were both being charged. im soo scared. i mean, its my first offence, so i wont be arrested, but i dont want a record..im 18.
damm...notur fault...testify against him, he used u.
If you dont get caught walking out the door can they come after you a few weeks later?
if you dont get caught on the spot they cant get you once your off their property.
the LP are never ahead of the game. we are. with the right tools and right techniques ull never get caught. LPs have a list of rules or steps that must be met in order for them to make a stop, and if one isnt met they cant maek the stop, its pretty easy to make them miss one. dumba$$ LPs
I used to shoplift in 9th grade...mostly stuff from dollar stores and things like lipglosses, candy bars, etc.I was caught twice (2 stores--one time each). It was humiliating, and I learned my lesson. I didn't get arrested, but just getting caught by a sales associate and having people staring at you was bad enough. I was ashamed to say the least and they let me off with a warning but told me not to come back to the store until I was 18.I'm almost 22 now and never have done it since.Believe me, so not worth it.
i started stuffing my pockets with king size snickers from sam's club and i never got caught, did it about five times. stealing felt good, like i was balancing things out, taking from the rich corporate companies. then one day i was at a navarro and saw some gel pens and memo pads and thought "hmm, ill just take em, i dnt need to pay for them". i thought i was gnna get away w/ it, i was out the door, and then a man came up to me and told me to take out the pens and pad. i was with my parents, and i felt HORRIBLE. i shamed my dad over something so STUPID. agh! i dnt think ill b shoplifting ever again. fortunately the guy didnt call the police or anything. he showed me the video of me stealing. LAME.
i got caught shop lifting the first time was wen we were jus messin about wen me and a couple of mates decided to steal some cufflinks we got caguht and the police gave us a slap on the wrist the second time i dediced to up my game to colths so i decede to steal jeans got aways wiv a couple of times then i got caught and had the worst feeling and the emabrassment i brought on my self and my parents i never felt like ive let them down soo much before i wish i can go back and change my ways but now im a differnt person i would neva shop lift ever agen and too all those people who think its cleva and a good idea belive me it isnt u will reliase later on in life ..... peace
what happens after the second time u get caught stealing and go to court???? will u go 2 prison or county jail????since now its a petty theft with a prior....
yes when i was younger. I grew up in group homes and i nver had anything i need cuz we got 200 dollar in summer and spring for clothes and that was it. I stole shirts perfume, make-up tampon whatever but i did it to survive. Now i'm 19 i still steal but i'm buying something else too. Like if i spend 200 sollars in a store, ill steal a shirt or a pair of pants. I fugure the clothes are all S***ty made, and are made in sweatshops so the store has no right getting something made fo 7$ and charging 40 for it.the owe me.if somethindgs too expensive i'll steal it tp
Tonite Ive finished shoplifting. Ive been stealing alcohol from meijer in a shopping cart (over 400 dollars worth each time) for about a year. I also have been stealing clothes, jewelry, large merchandise (TVs, Computers, DVD players, Surround Sound Systems) and anything else you can imagine. I was on a roll... Ive only been caught once in two years. But I think it takes getting caught to realize how stupid something is. I was caught tonite stealing women's clothes from sears. My court date is this friday which is also the day I turn 18. This is grounds to say, "Sam, you are completely and fully screwed."Dont steal unless you are old and senile. please.
I got caught at a kohls for some stupid gift card.....I was arrested and charged and let out on bail and then when I went to court 3 days later I went to jail for 3 days because we lived in a small town........any where else I would have gotton a warning because it was a first time and under $80.00. Try explaing to your kids why mom isn't home for 3 days straight
me and galz do it all the time bled!!its sweeti get bare thingsmy 2 mateslizzie n abbiy got caught HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAAHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and they have 2 go 2 court and wil get dun bledso safe yehhdo itzz! while ure young and free blad! sweet as cherry pie!
I am not from the US... i am here as an exchange student/Nanny and i live with a nice hostfamily. I never had much but since im here i can go shopping and im having a great time and everything i've ever wanted... unfortunately i'm mad stupid!! I stole back in my homecoutry because i couldn'd afford anything even though i worked hard (pay rent, the exchange programm, driver licence etc.) So i swore to myself that once im in the US i would never do it again... i broke the promise to myself ... 3 days ago (mothersday) my hostfamily went to the movies in the mall and i offered to take the baby so they can all go together and i'll just walk around the mall. Well, i got caught at SEARS for stealing $90 worth of jewelery - all stupid things i didn't really need. I walked around the store and took the stuff out of the packaging and the tags off and put it in shelves as i walked by... i went to the dressing room and put it in my purse .. when i walked out and wanted to go into the next store a guy stopped me saying "hey miss, can i have that jewelery back that u took from sears" without respond i opened my purse and handet him the stuff. They brought me to the office and i was there for over an hour because i had to figure out what to do with the baby...when the officer came he went down to the theatre and stopped the movie to tell my Hostparents what i've done and so they would pick up the baby. I was put into hancuffs, they took my picture and fingerprinted me... my coutdate is in a week... I still don't know what to say to my hostparents except "I'm so sorry" Now i'm afraid i will get sent back for it..I don't know what to do , think or say... it was wrong all the time, not only when i got caught!!! My selfrespect is basicly non-existand... now when someone is nice to me i think that i really don't deserve it, they keep telling me they love me but i KNOW inside they are dissapointed and shocked... I don't know what to say...
I steal all the time. Usually just petty things like candy and drinks but sometimes i steal better things like movies or golf balls. I do it at the Wal-mart because i know they can afford it. they are corporate fat cats. i would never steal from a family businesss though, thats just plain wrong. I always fear getting caught but i know Wallyworld could care less. its an addiction, don't fall into its trap.
my friend tried peer pressuring me into stealing. the furthest i got was taking off the tags, but i put the stuff back. little did i know, when i wasn't with my friend, she put more stuff into her bag. so do you think i'll go to jail for taking the tags off, even though i put the stuff back? i have to go to court, but i don't want to go to jail.- sorry, i messed up the first time i posted this.
I STOLE 5 CARS AT A CAR WASH! LOL, no I'm joking, but still, why do you people steal? I mean seriously?
My friend and I stole $50 worth of stuff, and well... We're going to court tomorrowSo I have no idea what's going to happenWe learned our lessonIt was our first time and LAST time doing itHopefully the judge will be like "First offence, just $50, pay double what you took and court fee"I can only hope...
So if they catch you too late, follow you out the door, but you r already in your caar, driving off..... then you are safe unless you go back to that store?
i have. I got caught, now i have trouble finding jobs. I have a boyfriend in the UK whom i can't see without a visa. will take years i reckon. the shoplifting happened in 2002. i was underweight, depressed, and no where to turn. and a stupid mistake like that can ruin the rest of your life!
I've stolen petty things from big corporate stores. DON'T FEEL BAD. That $15 shirt you're buying was made by a sweat-shop worker who gets paid 5 cents an hour. F#ck them. They don't even feel a scratch in their profits from shoplifters. If you can get away with it- GOOD. Just DON'T FEEL BAD.
I steal from department stores like Winners and I don't feel bad at all. F*** them, they're a huge corporation that makes enough money anyways. And they're cheap on top of that paying all their employees minimum wage and not being able to hand out more hours or hire more staff. I would never steal from my friends or family or anything. Just the stores like the one above. And I don't feel the slightest bit guilty.
I agree with the posters above. F*** those stores, they make a sh!tload of money anyways. If you can get away with it then go for it. Not only are you getting S*** for free but you're also getting a rush out of this, its like your new F***kin heroin! Who needs drugs?
stealing is bad for you!!
does anyone know how to steal from hollister? like if they have sensor tags on every piece of clothing?
I've heard anti-shoplifting crusaders claim that retail stores compensate their employees for catching shoplifters. This couldn't be further from the truth. I've worked multiple (slave) retail jobs before I finished college, and either the employer didn't care about an employee's diligence in preventing theft, or the employer urged us not to approach shoplifters. This is a liability for the company, especially if the shoplifter decided to assault me in some way.But what I wanted to say overall, if you must shoplift, don't be stupid. Don't take items blatantly out in the open. Don't take items with a security tag (or you're a complete moron), don't leave evidence of your deed (hangers or tags in a fitting room) and most of all, don't discuss shoplifting within earshot of anybody when you're inside of or nearby the store.
I sometimes lift when im drunk, and i always feel terrible the next day, it usually testers, in store samples,bulk stuff or newspapers...I havnt been caught but i know my day will come..so im goin to commit myself to fighting my stupid impulses
urghhhdont ever shoplift. i learned my lesson. stole 4 shirts from macys. got caught. got arrested. mom was truely dissapointed. never ever do it it was so stupid. not worth the embarrasemnet ever.
i just got caught shoplifting... i was outside the store and the "security" employee grabbed my arm and tried to force me back in the store. i resisted because he was hurting me, so i tried to walk away and he kept grabbing me and yelling at me. so my friend came in and pushed him off of me and said "stop hurting her get your hands off of her!" he didnt. he attacked my friend and then chased me across the street into oncoming traffic. now at this point i'm not worried about being arrested for stealing, i'm just scared of this huge angry man chasing a young girl like me through a busy city area. so i kept screaming and crying while he chased me and finally i just dropped my bag of stolen MAKEUP and ran and then he called over a cop from the street and the cop grabbed me and twisted my arm around while i was still screaming for him to stop hurting me and i kept saying i was sorry and that i wouldn't run as long as he would stop twisting my arm. i was in so much pain. they handcuffed me and took me to jail. the cop kept making fun of me in the car. i just kept crying from being attacked by that huge man from the store. they kept me in a cell for 3 hours, full of piss and roaches, then let me out. the cop tripped my earlier so my shoe was broken, phone was dead, i was pretty much out in the middle of no where, completely freaked out. so now i have court on the 30th. i didn't know employees were allowed to try to bring you back in the store for shoplifting long after you've already left and then allowed to pursue you into oncoming traffic....? i can't stop having nightmares. nothing would make me happier right now than to die.
bee ... you can sue the store ... which store was it?
I'm 35. I've been shoplifting nearly all my life. It probably started when I was about 7 or 8 years old. I'd go to the corner store and steal candy. Eventually, I got caught and the cashier (probably the franchise owner), called my parents and I got into major trouble. When I was about 12, I shoplifted from a novelty toy store in the mall. What was really embarrassing was that the employee that came up to me turned out to be one of our neighbours! She let me give back the toy and leave the store, but I could never look at her again. I was too ashamed.For a while after that, I didn't do any shoplifting. Then, I started again. Never anything big or expensive. Then when I was about 20, shortly after moving away from home, I was quite short of money and stole out of necessity. Then, I got the "shoplifting bug" again and stole even when I didn't need to. Usually food, clothes and shoes. Once I filled up my gas tank in my car and drove away without paying.Then, it happened. I got caught. It was in a Safeway supermarket. I ate some cheap fruit bar candy thing and shoved the wrapper behind something on a shelf. I think I pocketed a few things, then went to pay for what was in my shopping cart. On the way out, I got stopped and taken into an office for what seemed like an hour-long interrogation over stealing $11 worth of merchandise. It was made even more embarrassing as some friends were waiting in the car for me. It was hard to make up an excuse as to what took me so long!Once again, being caught spooked me for a while. The worst I would do is eat bulk food in a supermarket - until one day an employee told me to stop doing that. A warning - lucky break!But did I stop? No. Oh, I stopped for a few years, but recently, got back into it. Being short on money, I'd go to department stores, grocery stores or corner stores and see things I wanted (but not really needed). As I was out of work and on a small, fixed income, I resorted to stealing candy and other junk food. I guess payback is a b**ch because now I've gained so much weight from all that stolen junk food!I haven't been caught for ages, but almost was. I was trying to steal some items from a grocery store. Went to the self-scan check-out and the store manager came over. I was freaked out and acted like I was drunk or on medication and didn't know what he was talking about. Somehow, I fooled him. My most recent shoplifting? Two days ago. About $3 worth of candy. I just can't stop. After reading all your stories and typing my own, it's made me realize, maybe I really do have a problem. I'd love to be able to stop shoplifting and don't want to get caught as the method of curing my disease. I don't have a criminal record and certainly don't want one, but if I keep this up, I might end up with one. Although, I've don't usually steal more than $10 worth of stuff at a time (although sometimes it's more, like shoes or a shirt worth $25), it's easily amounted to thousands of dollars worth over my 35 years on this earth.I don't even get that adrenaline rush anymore, probably because the items I steal are so cheap. Most people would be shocked to learn of my dirty little secret. None of my friends or family even suspects and I'd be crushed if they found out. I keep promising myself I won't shoplift, and sometimes go months or even a couple of years, then I'm back at it. How do I stop?
Oh, I forgot to mention... when I was in my teens and early 20's I stole quite a bit from work. When I worked in Canadian Tire, I stole what I could fit into my pocket. We also had a policy of "writing off" merchandise with severely damaged packaging, damaged or missing components. Sometimes I would intentionally "damage" something I wanted, but not to the point where it was unusable. Then it would be written off and I could take it home.They must have wised up to that, because the policy changed and all "write offs" had to be destroyed and could not be taken home by employees. I felt bad until I found out a fellow employee admitted to stealing far more expensive items. I got in his car and noticed a nice new stereo. He casually admitted he stole it from work! Of course, we can be sure that wasn't first, or last time, he stole from work.Then I worked at a small office supply store, before the advent of those big box stores. It was just so darned easy to steal merchandise and make copies, laminate things, etc, without being caught, that I did it quite often. When I was about 20, I worked at a 7-11 convenience store and got put on the night shift, alone. There were cameras, but I'd manage to take food to the back of the store and then hide it in my car when I went to take out the garbage. Back then, there was a display case for cigarettes on the counter. I'd steal a pack every once in a while for my roommate, who would sometimes give me a few dollars for them. The store was in a rather "down and out" neighbourhood and shoplifting by customers was a serious problem. One day, my boss told us that in the past week (or maybe it was the past month), after taking inventory, it was discovered that there was over $2000 in merchandise stolen. I remember thinking to myself, several hundred dollars worth was from me! I think the manager suspected but never actually came out and said anything. I quit and got a job at a video store.I figured at a video store, there wasn't as much opportunity to steal. But, I still found myself stealing movies, junk food and other merchandise. Then I discovered a way to steal money from the till. A loophole in the system, that I discovered by chance, made me aware of this, and am ashamed to say, I stole small amounts of money quite frequently. I usually justified this by saying to myself that since I didn't get paid a lot, this was a way to make up for it. But, I knew then, and know now, that it's wrong. Really, really wrong. I've since only worked in places where there was no merchandise or anything worth stealing. That seems to be the only way of controlling myself. But, even that is not foolproof. I've used company vehicles for personal use many times, saving me hundreds of dollars in gas, passing it on to my employer.The only job I didn't steal anything from was my last one. It was an office job. I suppose if I were so inclined, I could have stolen some pens or old computers, but they weren't appealing to me so I didn't. But if there were something nicer, and the opportunity was there, I'd probably have stolen.Aaaahhhh!!! How do I stop?
I've just started shoplifting. I stole a cople of eyliners and lip gloss from a big brand. It felt good at the time. Now i just feel like a twat to be honest.
Hi im morgan.im only 13. i was with my sister and my best friend.she told us she would buy us stuff. and instead made us steal it. i know it was my chose or not, and i did. i got caught. know i have to write an apology letter. i am sorry for what i did. but, i need help writing this letter.please help..i need it by this thursday.
Yes i have and trust me it is not worth it. I shoplifted this measly $8 item because my friend told me to she said it was fun and kept telling me to do it and so i did and we both got caught and we had to pay $200 and had to do 8 hours of service. Its not worth it at all. If i could change what i did i would, it's stupid. Please don't do it!
ive recently picked up this habit(shop lifted 2 times, im already addicted =/)so far i havent been caught yet x] i've also stolen like.. idk over 200 bucks from my parents by now ;x like now.. everytime i go to the mall i always get an urge to steal stuff >.< klepto?? D:
I shoplifted today and was caught. I was given a warning and I had to sign papers saying that I would never go into this store again for the rest of my life. Not just the one, but any of them. I also had to sign a paper saying that I shoplifted. They gave me a warning saying that since I was going to the near-by college that I had a future and that I should take this to heart. I have and I hope that if anyone here thinks of stealing, you should think again and again. I wish I had.
My boyfriend made me steal some stuff, it was like $129 worth of stuff.. And I didn't want too but I did. I'm 16, and live in MI. They made me sign papers and the cops weren't called but they were going to charge me in a court date. I have a question.. Is it going to go on my record or what? Like at 18 my records get sealed anyways.. But I wanted to go into the Marines and go into NCIS.. Are my chances ruined now? I haven't had a court date or anything.. I'm really worried, 'cause its been over a month.. Please help me answer these questions..
OMG I JUST GOT CAUGHT THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, ALSO THE DAY AFTER MY BIRTHDAY. THEY CALLED THE COP AND I WAS LEFT WITH JUST A WARNING. BUT THIS WAS A BIG WAKE UP CALL. I DONT WANT TO DO IT AGAIN BUT I HONESTLY THINK ITS AN ADDICTION. IT JUST MAKES ME SO MAD TO KNOW THAT PEOPLE CAN GET THEIR STUFF FOR FREE AND I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT? WHY NOT JUST JOIN THE CROWD AND STEAL? I KNOW I KNOW ITS WRONG. I AM GOING TO TRY MY BEST TO STOP
I actually got caught today. I stole lots of things before but I was caught taking a small container of Orange Juice. How lame is that? It was soo embarrassing, and after reading everybodys stories I realize its just not worth it. I have to pay a fine now, but I'm just glad the cops weren't called. Now I gotta hope my family doesn't find out and I still have a clean record. I am scared straight!
Yeah I Shoplifted once , A lipgloss .. I did about a year ago .. but my concious still pains me.. I always think to myself.. stealing is stealing whcih makes me sick to my stomach I would take the lipgloss back , though my dog got to it and put little holes in it I just wish I never did (steal it)
I'm fifteen years old and have been shoplifting for more than a year now. It started with small things, a pack of gum from 7-11 or whatever. Actually, it's still mostly small things. But...pretty much every single time i go into a convenience store I pick up something, or multiple things, withour paying for them. It is just so, so easy. I never feel guilt either, it's kind of a rush when I'm out and it's like "yeah! Free stuff!" I never have that much money and what I do have I don't want to spend on crappy little snacks and stuff. I take a lot of beauty products, too, because they're small but kinda expensive and I'm really self-conscious about the way I look and kind of feel like i need them, or I guess even deserve them.Today I was at the mall and I went into this little makeup store. I looked around for a while but all the stuff was really expensive, and I slipped a few things into my bag. I thought I did a pretty good job of it, no one stopped me or anything. I had already lifted things from other places in the same mall, that same day even, without feeling at all bad about it. I mean, they're corporate giants, they can afford it. But okay. Later, I was leaving the mall (my bag stuffed with stolen goods, I hadn't paid for anything that day), and I saw one of the employees from this store. I smiled at her and she smiled too, but then stopped me. She said something like, "Hey, I've been looking for you. We have you on camera taking some stuff from our store, and also from earlier this week. You can just give it back to me now and I won't call security."Of course I say yes and dig it out of my purse and give it to her. "I'm really sorry," I say as she walks away, and she turns and says "It's okay, just don't do it again."And then this huge wave of guilt hits me. It was horrible, I couldn't stop thinking about what a terrible person I was for taking all this S*** from all these places over all this time. And this lady was so, so nice to me for not calling security or anything. I almost started crying, she was so nice about this crappy thing that I did. I've probably shoplifted more than $200 worth of stuff accumulatively. Now I really want to stop but I'm not sure how. It just seems so much easier not to have to pay for stuff, and I'm really good at it. It just doesn't seem logical /not/ to do it, but now I'm feeling guilty about it and really want to stop.
got caught. don't do it. its not worth it.
jessie,well it depends on if its your first crime or not. it was for me and i got to choose between a diversion program and court. i chose the program and after 3 months its off my record. but if you go to court and loose, not only will you have to pay a fine and most likely do community service and junk, its on your record till you're 18
what the f. you all got off so easy.damn. the cops were called on my ass and they talked to me for an hour, my parents cried, im banned from scheels for a year, im grounded for 3 months, i got my license but i can't drive.marandoll, you suck. ha.just think about how you can't get caught. if i ever get tempted again im just gonna remember how much my life absolutly F***ing sucks right now
i just thought about shoplifting today, but only because a good friend of mine just told me that she shoplifts most of her clothes and never gets caught. i thought that i would be able to too but i cant because once i get started i probably wont be able to stop because im somewhat of a shopaholic...so imagine what it'd b like if i shoplifted. i would like having nice things and not have to pay for them but i really wouldnt be able to do that to people who actually have to pay more for the stuff because people shoplifted. i get that people are in difficult situations and they do have to shoplift sometimes..my friend's poor and thats the only reason why she does it. if she had money for clothes she would pay. i dont have a reason though, because i'm not poor and i do get money, so im not gonna start. (:
I've done it since I was in the single digits and at 18 now I still do it. And I love it, to be honest. Done more types of theft than most anyone in their early teens. I was caught once, when I was 13 foolishly trying to steal a cd from Target(the stupid part was, I stole it because it had a parental advisory sticker and I was afraid to try and buy it). The whole interrogation process was awful and embarassing. I didn't resist or anything and the bastards still decided to handcuff me to the seat. I really hate how high and mighty those LP fellows acted. Not to mention my parents being stuck with a F***ing $300 bill for a $15 cd. No record though, I wasn't taken down and fingerprinted or anything. Its stupid how many mistakes I made with that...I despise the way others look down on it though. Yes, its essentially wrong to take things that aren't yours, but I don't see what I do as immoral in the least bit. Hey, I even have moral standards over who I steal from. I steal from nothing but big companies (mainly walmart) because I know that the people at the top of these stores have more than enough money to last a lifetime. I don't care that the prices may increase due to theft; if anything you should get mad at the company for being so damned greedy. I understand perfectly how it can be addictive. A few days ago I had a strangely strong urge to steal something, part out of necessity and part because I wanted that feeling of success, that I defeated them. But I am no means addicted. If I wanted to stop, I would. But the main reason I steal is because money isn't easy to come by at this point in life. I live alone with my Mate, and her father is able to keep her financially set just fine. I moved out several years ago to live with her, but after my last visit to my parents they seem to have forgotten about me (we've had a bumpy life, so this isn't surprising- and I would'nt want to be a problem asking for money...) I'm sure plenty of you out there would love to say "just get a job!" but for one, where I live jobs are pretty tight. But moreso, not everyone was born with the same mental blueprint. The idea of being a slave to an hourly paycheck, working my life around a clock and a schedule, inable to go out and live life when I want because I have to go to be at work from 8 to 6, is appauling. I have plenty of ideas of how to make money, but none can be done overnight... Belive me, if I had the money to spend, I wouldn't be a theif. But even though my Mate has enough money for the both of us, I really want to be able to help out, by whatever means. The life of a theif always appealed to me. It just seems more interesting and rewarding than playing it by the rules like everyone else. Of course, in this day & age the consequences are often unfairly severe.I've recently been going over a complex and possibly effective idea to steal several hundred if not a couple thousand dollars worth from a certain store, and selling it online. I've been going over the web looking at all sorts of info, looking for tips that might help, looking at what might happen. Unfortunately for me, the risks outweigh the gain. Getting away with that much will put that theft up to felony level, and thats a little more serious than I'm comfortable with. A couple thousand would last us for a long time, but its just too risky. I've been trying to find a decent wholesaler/drop shipper or manufacturer to buy from so I could start an ebay store, but I've been getting frustrated trying to find anything at all. Thus, the thought of selling stolen goods floated through my mind. I wouldn't have to find a company to buy from, and would profit more and could surprize my mate with how much I was able to provide. But plan A has no risk of being tracked down and arrested...So I'll be staying away from large scale theft like that, but by no means will I stop stealing. Unless I make enough to where I don't want to save every dollar I find, I'll keep going. Don't count on me being caught any time soon though. Its as easy to NOT get caught as it is to get caught. You just have to really know what you're doing.
Damn that was a long post! Sorry if it rambles...Another thing I wanted to state was how ridiculous the whole legal system is. Just because someone stupidly tried taking something out of need or impulse, doesn't give the right to permanantly scar their record. The humiliation of getting caught should be more than enough to prevent most from doing it again. It just seems way to severe to take someones life out of their own hands and deprive it as they see fit over a simple mistake. ESPECIALLY if its a first offense. If they are caught multiple times or its of significant value, I can understand a moderate punishment. But what some people are saying, how they stole something worth $10 and have a humiliating experience and a permanent scar on their record for it is upsetting...Just thought I'd state that.-Your friendly internet stranger
Yeah I Shoplifted once , A lipgloss .. I did about a year ago .. but my concious still pains me.. I always think to myself.. stealing is stealing whcih makes me sick to my stomach I would take the lipgloss back , though my dog got to it and put little holes in it I just wish I never did (steal it) JessicaSunday, 02 November 2008 13:58 PM EST lol youre a little crazy to feel guilty over this for such a long time. wtf lol. but just think more.... if that really bothers you so much and you cant return it cause its damaged... how bout you go to the store , buy another lip gloss for 50 cents or whatever lulz. then go back to the store with the lipgloss you bought and put it back. it would be like you paid for the old one.... and then you can go on living without your conscious from THIS HORRIBLE THING YOU DID!!!!lolz rediculous but..... a solution
I just got caught today.at Hottopic.not exactly "caught"since I didnt take that thing with me.That girl (a girl that works there)found the ripped wrapper. and followed me around in the store.started yelling: I need help at the floor.then I pull out the stuffs...they found it ....and then I quickly walked out.the alarm was purposely ringing.then that girl told me : just so you know. you are not allowed in this store anymore........so does that mean I am banned from ALL Hottopic shops?or just that one.... I feel extremely stupid.that thing is just about 30bucks.EMBARRASSING...I feel so bad now...so plz dont rub it in....
wow... I can't believe how many people are addicted to shoplifting...Thank god I never did it. I would, however, steal if I REALLY wanted to. I just don't see the necessity in it. I have stolen from people (not like burglars, from my sister as revenge) but not stores. too much risk.
Well im 14 years old.I just stated stealing because once i was at target and i wanted this lip gloss,i got it,and got away with it.Ive probably stold,4 books,2 cd's,tons of mascara,chap stick,eye shadow,the big packs of gum,candy,chocolate,head phones,bateries(gutair hero hah),thongs,at the mall ive taken sun glasses,perfume,socks,rings(not expensive ones)& thats about it,now that ive seen some other stories with people stealing thousands of dollards worth of stuff,i dont feel so bad. Just over the weekend i got caught at Hollister for stealing perfume,bodywash,and a lipgloss. It was such a horrible feeling,i stole 57$ worth of stuff. They put me in handcuffs,and i had to walk out the mall with everyone looking at me. Now i am banned from going to Hollister&Ambrocrombie&fitch,my mother told me she got caught shoplifting at around my age,and was on probation&had to go to juvienile hall for about a month on sayurday&sunday. I might have to pay a fine of 500$,actually it will come out of my moms pocket,i might have to go to juvienile hall,im glad i got caught,it was a nasty habbit,but for my consequence i had to take down all my twilight posters,no ipod,no phone,no friends,no life. The worst thing is i lost all my families trust,imagining letting your mom down,i get decent grades,and everyone thought i was a good girl.which i am,i just made a stupid decision. Now i will never shoplift again,ever. I got arrested& i have to go to court. My life is going downhill,ive done some stuff that i never thought i would do,i feel like i have no respect for myself. Now im changing,sadly i just took my moms car while she was at work&i crashed it into a stopsign,it was hella funny hah,luckliy i didnt get caught,my fun days are over,cause im all about having fun,and breaking the rules,i just effed up around with the law. Shoplifting is addicting,like i said im glad i got caught cause i was getting tired f having a guilty conscious,its really not worth it. I will be getting the papers for my court dates probably this week, i was scared to death cause i have never been placed in handcuffs.I am so dissapointed in myself.Shoplifters you will get caught eventually,so be careful&think ahead of whawt your doing &dont eff up your life.peace:O
one day i went to target with my best friend. We went in looked around, she tried on some clothes, and left. When i got back to my car she started pulling a whole bunch of S*** out. clothes, jewelry, shades, shoes galore. and i was completely jealous. terrible i know, but i was jealous she got all this cool stuff and i didn't. Needless to say i got into it pretty quick. All the goods. Clothes, hats, bras, jewelry, shoes, purses, the works. i was addicted. It got to where i was stealing things that i didn't even want or need. Last week i went into dillards (a place i visited A LOT) and was caught shoplifting a 118$ purse. im banned from every dillards for the rest of my life, i was arrested, escorted to the cop car outside, and went to jail. My mom bailed me out for 115$ and my court date is in April. I've never gone through as much depression as i am now. im 17 and will go to college next year and this will probably be on my permanent record. all for a purse i didn't even care for. Honestly, those of you who have started, you probably won't stop until your caught. maybe you wont even stop then. But im vowing to never do it again. and i hope you will do the same.good luck.
okay i'm 17, going to be 18 in two months.it has been one month since i got caught.heres the story.i was trying to take a necklace that was 12 dollars(stupid, i know). i took off the tag, but i never put it in my pocket, i just had it hidden in my hand.A lady at the store gave me some funny looks, i was about to just put it back and leave, when she came up and told me to give her what was in my hand.long story short, the county hasn't contacted me yet, but court papers were filled.i'm banned from the mall for one year.I'm hoping to get into juvenile diversion, so its not on my record.(i'm trying to go into nursing).two questions,does the fact that i never put it in my bag change anything?and two,is it normal for it to take over a month for the county to get any file on me?anything constructive would help.and yes, i'm done with this & it's my first offense.
sorry that was a long post but one more question.i already do a lot of community service, but if communtiy service was given as a punishment, would the services I already do go towards the punishment?thanks in advance
1. Conceals the merchandise upon his or her person or in another manner; or2. Removes or causes the removal of merchandise from the mercantile establishment or beyond the last station for payment;3. Alters, transfers or removes any price marking affixed to the merchandise; or4. Transfers the merchandise from one container to another; or5. Causes the cash register or other sales recording device to reflect less than the merchant's stated price for the merchandise; or6. Removes a shopping cart from the premises of the mercantile establishment. Those are the criterias (for some states)therefore because you removed the tag and concealed it will still be charged as shoplifting
during the summer I was on vacation visiting my aunt and uncle, and when we went to the mall i decided i could get away with taking a few shirts. I didnt think that the tags would set off the alarm, but they did. My uncle and aunt were nowhere in sight so i was forced to stay in the store where they phoned the cops and had them question me. It was the worst feeling ever, and nothing could compare to the guilt i felt for betraying my families trust and me and my dumb descisions. I still feel guilty for doing it and thank god i didn't get arrested or sent to court but I think the emotional pain is enough, as I know this is something I will never ever do again. People who shoplift, Stop. You're only gonna get burned, and after that was it really worth it? The stuff you took will only make you feel guilty. Hopefully you guys can stop, and if your addicted to it get help because theres always someone who can help you.
oh yeah, and for people who say those companies don't feel a 'dent'? Did you know stores lose 11.8 BILLION $$ a year over shoplifting? and that lose makes the price even more expensive for people who do pay?
if i need something and can't afford it and can't wait for it until i have the money, sometimes i will steal. i stole shampoo once in college when i had no money to buy any. i didn't pick the most expensive one on the shelf, just what i needed. when i was a single mom living on food stamps and had no money, a few times i would steal tampons because you can't buy them with food stamps. i have stolen otc medicines from the store when my kids were sick and it cost more money than i had. when i got a job that required a uniform and i did not have the money to pay for it, i stole the items i needed. the most petty thing i have ever stolen was makeup for my older daughter. she needed foundation, i was broke and it was humiliating to admit to her that i didn't have twelve bucks for a stupid foundation, so i stole it. i have never been caught, and i try not to be greedy about it - only taking what i need, and not taking the most expensive item on the display, and not taking from small businesses but only from huge chain stores. i have never told anyone about this.
I've never shoplifted and kept the items. I lift big money items and then sell them. I'm considering getting a group of other pros together but the risk would elevate. I make an above average living off of it.Some of the comments on here are pretty bad. I believe one woman claimed she stole makeup but then tried to make herself the victim by saying she only "did it for her kids". You steal makeup for your kids?Amateur stealing is pointless...all these things you truly never really needed, but stole out of pure thrill and boredom. *shrug* Cant say I've ever been there, but I double majored in psych and philosophy so I know the general "why".ps. Tip for amateurs (aka. 14 year old girls with side cut bangs): line your purse with aluminum foil instead of wasting time peeling tricky bar codes off. It blocks the sensors at the exits from reading them so the alarms wont go off.
i got busted today trying to steal, the shop lady saw me trying to open some chocolates and put them in my bag i didn't end up going through with it but she found me and screamed at me and threw me out of the store it was the most embarrassing and humiliating thing ever. i cant get over it,keeps replaying in my head. i completely deserved it though. i learned my lesson i will never steal again .i consider myself pretty lucky that the cops weren't called and its not going on my record.don't shoplift its not worth it i see that now that i got caught. if i could take it all back i would
i steal clothes from high street shops its easy but my mates got caught but i still havent stopped and i love it because i constantly have new nice clothes. just to impress girls reallyme and my mates used 2 make days out of it and get excited but now we jus go out nd decide 2 do it when we are in the store and who knows westfield in sheperds bush i have robbed 13 of their stores hahaha
about a month ago i was caught shoplifting from sears.. yeah SEARS dunt know why i tried but just wanted to get shoes for my brother myself and my friend..i only had a 20 so i thought i could justify their prices.. by stealing .. yeah .. -_-" we walked out the door thought we made it .. when a guy opened the door behind us and said we need you to come back inside .. as an act of desperation .. i took off my backpack with all the shoes and i ran..i stopped after a 10 feet or so realizing.. that it was useless to run especially since my friend was already being held by them .. i stopped and started walking back and the other security guard grabbed me by my shirt and was rough and yeah.. they brought us back .. i was glad we didnt have to walk through the mall .. luckily there werent alot of people at the sears to see us being dragged into their security station..we later realized that they saw my friend drop a box in an area where cameras were pointed while .. they didnt see where i was .. but yeah ...all because i ran.. instead of being handeled with sears.. police were called ... and we were put into handcuffs .. worst feeling u can ever get .. it was horrible .. im just glad i got caught .. if i got away i might have tried it again.. i thank God because .. i heard if i was to run a couple more feet into the parking lot i would have been.. a felon.. and wouldve been charged alot more ... its been a month since then ..and all ive gotten is a fine from sears..nothing else.. they told us to call for the court date.. if we dont receive it after paying .. its been 3 weeks since we've payed.. i dont know if they would drop the case or its just taking long to process the case.. i just .. wanna know .. what will happen?.. i suggest to those who have not gotten caught yet to stop while ur ahead.. its not worth the shame .. and agony i've faced.. its definetly not worth it..
i have never done it and don't thing that it's worthy at all. but i've a question for those who said they weren't caught in the moment of doing it and that they stole expensive stuff in big corporate stores. what if the store counts what they should have in the shop and they notice that there has been i big loss in the day? don't they look through the security cams for the day and find it out? is it posible that you get caught afterwards? i'm kind of thinking that the police can just turn up in your place a few days/weeks later and say "hey, we caught you"or once the people get out of the shop with the stolen stuff, without getting on the alarm, they are safe?wouldn't you be worried about this?
yes i shoplift for my friend that he`s gonna pay me half price of whatever i steal just to buy medecine for my ailing parent i got caught outside the department store two guys 200lbs 6'2" each try to beat the hell out of me i dont have recource but to fight back, by the way i`m 7 degree black belt send those guys to the hospital both got broken jaws 6 pairs of teeth fell.and the stuff i stole. cops came ask me what happen i said i just tried to defend myself spend a night in jail for using unarmed weapon by the way i`m only 5'5' IM NOT PROUD OF WHAT IVE DONE BUT YOU GUYS DONT UNDER ESTIMATE YOUR OPPONENT PEACE!
What is wrong with you people? How could you act so stupid? You may think it's just 'shoplifting' but it's stealing. And stealing is wrong. Stores don't just put their merchandise out for you to take it. Have you no morals? It's ridiculous, rich or poor, that you steal and can still look at yourselves in the mirror. The fact you can name all the items and when and why you took it just goes to show how big of a deal it is. I work in retail and we have no sympathy for shoplifters. How would YOU like it if I stole your wallet? You probably wouldn't care anyway since you don't need money for things, you just steal.It really is a damn shame you people think it's okay to take what's not rightfully yours. For those who have commented and steal, Karma will get you. There are consequences. You may not get caught today, or tommorow, or ever, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT. EVER.Those of us who don't steal have something you'll never have: SELF RESPECT AND A SENSE OF RIGHT AND WRONG.
I shoplift quite often. Cosmetics, clothes...I'm looking to upgrade to shoes. I don't see it as shameful or embarassing in the least. I still respect myself. There's a whole stigma surrounding shoplifting, and that doesn't apply to me. It doesn't even make sense to me. I know what is right and what is wrong, and you know what, it doesn't bother me. I'm not a freak. This nonchalant attitude of mine? Ask anyone who shoptlifts regularly and you'll see that they probably have it too. See, loss prevention agents say stealing is immoral and wrong and it will make it so we have to jack up prices and make it worse for everyone. Well then, you sit on your high and mighty throne of righteousness and I'll sit on mine. You don't bother me really so I'm just going to keep doing what I do.
i've never stole in my life until I was 13 which averge age when some people start to steal.I needed the money, i needed to buy stuff. I heard one of my classmate steal from this store in J-TOWN Dr.Grips and sold them for $4 each.so I decided to steal because it sounded so easy. when i went there, it was a little stationary store, no alarms, no detectors, just some security camera at the back.So I got some dr. grip and put it in my purse. Believe it or not, the Dr. Grip (japan series) was $11.50 each and heck no, i won't waste that much for it. Started selling them at school, it was a hit. Many people "pre-ordered" from me and I earned at least $30 total in 1.5 weeks. So I occasionally twice a week, i would shoplift ONLY from that store but was chickened out so I only stole 1-2 at a time. That guy who also steals it went there frequently and was suS***ious by the employees that they followed him around, he still manage to steal it and stuff it in his tucked shirt. This was my 4th time shoplifting and I didn't get caught because my friends didn't know i shoplift went there with me and they bought hella stuff. But it's like a rush, excitement, a ADDICTION! I freaked out and i want to stop, but i needed the money. sooner or later, i would be suS***ious too because i always got there. I pledge to stop, I don't want a bad record, i want to secure my trust. I liked that store but i stole from it. I don't feel this much addiction now but I have stole $44+ dollars worth of stuff and i feel bad. i had to stop sooner or later or i'll get caught.

I intend to pickpocket when the tourists flood in for the 2010 olympics. I know it makes the prices rise, etc. I care about myself more than other people... I don't believe in karma, though it's a nice fantasy, people getting punished for doing 'bad'... Morals are opinions, and vary from person to person. I'm not going to stop shoplifting from fear of Karma, but I may some day stop from fear of getting caught.
im so scared i live in the uk and got caught shplifting for the 3rd time will i go prison
Ive been shoplifting for over a year and at first I feel great, then I get home, look at everything I took, and Im so ashamed.. I dont even remember stealing half the things I did. I always shoplift at the mall, exept for the occasion mascara or something from k-mart. at hollister and abercrombie, I cut off tags and put the clothes into the bags for stuff I actually did pay for. then i hide the tags in the pockets of a pair of jeans or something for some really confused person to find. haha. little things like earrings from claires are so easy.. and the sephora by where i live has zero security tags or anything, just cameras that watch you and people on your back every second of your vist. but all i need to do is scan the cieling to find a blind spot. Ive become very skilled, observed the average shopped and learned to speak like them, act like them, be them.The guilt I live with is indescribable. I go to church every sunday, and I pray everyday and ask for help to WANT to stop. becuase I dont. its a struggle for me everyday. I know its wrong, I know I need to stop.. but its just so nice to get complimented on the way you smell for a $70 vera wang tester. its the most amazing feeling to get your style admired, its the greatest feeling ever to have a completely perfect-looking complexion from expensive cosmetics.. Ive been caught once, on the second time I ever stole, and i talked my way out of it. it was for a pair of earrings at hot topic that still had a hidden tag on them. now i just take the earrings off the thick cardboard. I didnt get in any trouble, I did set off an alarm, but i played it off complete surprised, offered to show them my purse, and even though it was full of stolen things, they didnt know. they saw a pair of claires earrings and said "oh, it must have been those." and let me go. I try to never steal from that hot topic anymore becuase I feel im forever in debt to them. I wake up, look in the mirror, and Im so ashamed of what I see. I see a disgusting, horrible shoplifter who's ruining the lives of all the poor people who work so very hard for every penny. Im a criminal. Im dirt. Im worse than dirt. and every single cute pair of earrings that sit in my drawer are screaming out at me. every hollister shirt with a little hole that ive sewed up is screaming out at me. every zumiez shirt that somebody forgot to put a tag on but I saw with my skilled eyes are calling out to me. every worker who works at any store ever and asks me if I need help, seeing if they can do me right is screaming out to me. if youve never shopplifted, dont start. if you have but its still in your control, stop NOW. if youve been caught and stopped altogether, I admire you more than you know. The world is full of wicked people, and its the worst feeling in the world to suddenly realize.. you're one of them. I owe society so much debt for this. I AM FOURTEEN YEARS OLD. but dont hold that against me. Ive realized I have a problem, and one day, I will stop. I want to work in the medical field, but my dreams might blow back up in my face if I get in enough trouble. what university wants a dirty shoplifter? my family has no money, but thats no excuse for what I do. im so ashamed. Very few people know of what I do. my sister actually helps me. but she always preeches to me. she tells me that even though what im doing is wrong, she loves me and she doesnt want anything to happen to me. she tells me to stop everyday. she tells me the concequences, she tells me she loves me. and it hurts so bad everyday.
both my parents died before i was 17 and its been pretty tough. ive been ill with a disease for about 3 years now and the system is so F*CKED that its hard for me to get on disability because you need a doctor to write you a recommendation, and i CANT AFFORD a doctor because i cant work, im MOSTLY bed ridden, but there are some "good days" where i can get up and do things for a few hours in one day, which happens like once every 2 weeks, and i garuntee you, a "good day" to me, if you felt how i felt on my good day, youd be in emergency room thinking you are dying, ive just grown used to it. anyway, its hard being a girl who is getting married who cant bring something to the table, or afford to lavish herself with anything such as shoes or makeup or a new outfit, and i dont want my fiance to pay for everything he already pays for my meds and food, why should i ask him to pay for things i "want" too? so yeah me and my best friend steal a lot because she too is in the same boat. i know its wrong and i ask God to forgive me, but even more i ask God to make me well again because believe me i would work day and night if i could, i envy people who can. ive applied for "medi-caid" or whatevr its called and it has been such a SLOW process so i litterally do all i can. so you LP people need to really catch the BAD guys who are supporting a drug habit, but really?how about this, do you feel good about yourself say when.....a year ago the california fires put people out of their houses so they had to all cluster to a shelter at the stadium where the radio and TV stations were asking for donations of blankets and pillowcases and medicines such as baby tylenol, tylenol, toothbrushes and other needs that these people had, and me and my best friend went to wal-mart and stole all those items and donated them all to those people, or how about when i feel bad at my fiances life because he works hard to pay for my medicine and food and things i need so i want to do something nice and steal him a tshirt or body soap he uses or anything like that just to say "thank you....."you really feel good about yourself for wanting to bust someone like that?F you. seriously.ive never ever been addicted to drugs but ive known people who are, and yea its not fair that they steal but what about my case? do you know what its like to be in ER 45 times in the past TWO YEARS??? or throw up 2 out of 3 meals a day? or not be able to stand up for long periods of time without blacking out? i NEED to steal, i need food i need medicine and i need an eyeliner here and there to still be able to feel good about myself in some sort of way if my body doesnt feel great. the cops are more heartfelt than you LP people, i think you are all pieces of S*** and you should PICK YOUR BATTLES. if a guy comes in and steals a DVD player and hes a thug and is cussing you out when you catch him, but all means hes a scumbag, but if someone is f*cked by the government and cant get medical help to get cured and needs to steal food, or a sweater for the winter, or items to donate to fire victims, and you call people like me scum? then get a freaking life, seriously. you are NO better than a "rent-a-cop" who are given a flashlight and feel authority. get off your high horse and catch VIOLENT criminals committing VIOLENT crimes.
omggg!!!i will never shoplift ever again!my 1st and last!first im not living at my parents house anymore....i move in w/ my boyfriend.im 18 years old.i don't work...im only a high school student.and just last month...in feb...my boyfriend and i went to the mall...just to 'let time go by'....i had no intention to shoplift...he had maybe like 10 bucks...and dat was only for food...we went to the mall to 'window shop'...so different from shoplifting...omgggg.so when we where about to go to the last store to window shop...i was like taking some clothes to try on...omgg i wanted those clothes...but had no money.i tempting to just take them.and guess what???i did.but.theres always a but.on our way out. i stop at the bathroom because i wasn't feeling well...i was bleeding...thinking it was my period...but not.(at the time i was worrying about being pregnant)(it was not planned..things happen.)-anywayssome cops who were dress like 'normal pple'...stop my boyfriend...while i was in the bathroom....i over heard that.when i got out.we were both taken to this room.there were securities every where...and every one was like writting report down.omgg...never have i been through all of that...bullS***.the value of the things that i stole came up to $300.now....i have to go to court.i don't even have money.i don't have a lawyer...to know what my rights are.im 18 years old.i have no support.i do regret what i did....i do feel ashamed...im sorry.we all deserve 2nd chance.im one of those pple who u would never think i would do such thing.i was surprise about myself...after.
im so scared i live in the uk and got caught shplifting for the 3rd time the last 2 times i got fines will i go prison this time im so scared can someone answer my question plz????????????
i'm a 14 year old girl who's just started to shoplift. shall i tell you why? yes, ridiculous reason: i don't have the money to fit in. haha. i said it. i want to dress like my friends do and now i finally can.the hilarious thing is, all my beautiful rich friends shoplift when they don't even need to. but i understand why. adrenaline rush feels so good when no one notices you :-)first thing i stole was a cardigan from primark. i tried it on and then picked up some jeans and (without taking it off) went into the changing rooms and ripped the tag off, put the cardy in my bag, said the jeans didnt fit and walked out. my friend taught me how to just drop it in my bag and go.since then i've stolen necklaces, bracelets, rings, headbands, perfume testers, foundation, mascara, eyeliner, jumpers, tshirts, hairspray, clearasil, lip gloss, pants, a bra, hair products, hair dye and occasionally food. like a bottle or can of coke and a chocolate bar or bag of crisps. for some reason i'm more scared to do that than steal clothes and stuff!:) "ps. Tip for amateurs (aka. 14 year old girls with side cut bangs): line your purse with aluminum foil instead of wasting time peeling tricky bar codes off. It blocks the sensors at the exits from reading them so the alarms wont go off."heh. thanks. i may try this - but not without research onto whether it actually works ;) and cute- i am 14 and have side bangs. love it.judge me if you like. i couldn't care less. yeah, i'll get caught one day, and then maybe i'll stop. so all you people who think you're better than me gtf off your high horse :D.
all my purses are big, but i keep them empty and go into stores and shoplift. i used to work at an electronics store, and i took one of their magnetic things and carry it in my purse, so now i can take the security cases off of CDs and DVDs. i mostly steal clothes and makeup, though. i steal the sample perfumes and cosmetics that stores set out, which technically you can't even legally get arrested for. when there are those small security things screwed into clothes, i sometimes carry around a small pair of scissors and sN*** off the fabric. it's relatively easy to sew it back up once you get it home, on certain fabrics.for books, (which i also steal a lot) i think those are easiest. i just scratch my fingernail hard over the security scanner and flip through the pages to make sure there aren't any other hidden security things that will set off the alarms.one time i entered a book-store with an empty looking purse and when i was leaving it definitely looked noticeably fuller. an employee stopped me, but i just shrugged and casually showed him the 3 books i had stolen. i said they were for school, which i was going to right now. he probably didn't believe me but knew he didn't have sufficient proof against me.also i often go to expensive couture stores on weekends when they're really busy and ask to try something on. of course all the dressing rooms will be full, and i'll insist that i HAVE to try something on now, or i'll have to leave because i don't have enough time. while doing this, i always make sure that i have one of the most expensive items in the store in my hand, so the sales associate figures it is better to cut some slack rather than lose a potential high-paying buyer. a lot of times, she will allow me to change in the back room, where there is plenty of stuff to steal. every time i steal i'm really afraid of getting caught, no matter how many times i do it. i have plenty of money, so i keep telling myself to stop, but i'm really good and about 90% of the time it's so easy, that i just can't.i know that if i ever get caught it'd be the most awful thing ever - but i don't think i'll be able to stop myself nonetheless.
i was at the grocery store this morning...i bought bananas and i decided to take a refill for my Airfreshener....wich its worth $4 dollars...i was at the parking lot when a girl approached me and told me i was under arrest for theft....she took me to her office and called the manager..the manager told me that what i did was stupid and that he wasnt gonna call the cops...they made a copy of my drivers licence and made me sign a paper...i was banned from the store...my question is...what now.?am i off the hook? is my name going to show up in some database? im freaking out about this...it was my first time and believe me...My Last..
i worked in a retail store i stole my assistant managers credit card and bought something out of it i dun knw what i was thinking i got caught she din't call the police and fired me of course AND I NEVER EVER DID THAT AGAIN I WAS REALLY STUPID I KNW but they told me how this thing won't show up on my record because i will oviously look for another job but i don't know iif they were telling the truth
i just started shoplifting in january i got caught yesterday i cried my eyes not knowing if i would get arrested.. Luckily i didnt but i stilled learned my lesson and i will never steal again and now i have to 100 and find the money to pay.. All i have to say is if you dont get caught you eventually will
yesterday i shop lifted at my local walmart. i go there with my mom dad and whole family numerous times. well yesterday we went and i stole this eyeliner. idk y i did it. my mom gave me my sister and brother 40 dollors to buy catliter and other S***. but that didnt stop me, i still did it. and yesterday wasnt the first time i stole, ive done it alot of times. anyways, i got caught yesterday. i had never been so scared in my life. the lady showed the package of eyeliner i had opened and said either i give it back to her or go to the station. so being the retard i am, i said " no i dropped it in the makeup isle" she grabbed my arm and almost grabbed my into the store to show her, but my brother stopped her and said " if you took it, i wont tell mommy and daddy, just give it back to her." and then i just gave it back to her. she told me never to come back to the store. now im paranoid as all hell. i fell like killing myself cuz what do i tell my parents when they say lets go to wallmart. or when i need to do school supply shopping or anything in that case. WHAT DO I DO? ive never felt so guilty in my life and embarrassed. idk what to do anymore, and you guys probably think im a punk or a P*** but im so confused so someone help me please!
yesterday i stole a max factor under eye concelerdidnt get caught eitherwas worth it, its really goodgo steal one people!
look a few posts up the the name:needs help.that was me.thankfully i didn't get officially charged with anything.but i do have a criminal history (which can be expunged in 2 years) but no criminal record which means only the police can see that i have a history, not employers or schools.I was really worried to be charged as an adult because I was 3 months away from turning 18 at the time, and I got into a diversion class, which meant it didn't go on my record.This class was 2 days before I turned 18.I was 2 days away from having a criminal record.For those who think they won't get caught, you will at some point.No, I'm not about to preach that shoplifting is this horrible and immoral thing, but it is illegal, which means there are consequences.be smart, ok?
i made a post a while ago, idk if anyone read it. but anyways writing on here helps so imma speak my mind. now that i think about what i did and what happened i came to realize that i was taking it way to hard on myself. the only reason i did it was because my parents have been struggling with bills for our huge house and paying for two kids in college and me and my other sister in highschool. and yea my parents have good jobs(nunrse and engineer) but they were still struggleing so i think i got use to not getting anything anymore, so i put everything on me and said i would provide for myself. if i could go back and not do it, of course i wouldnt have stolen. but what happened, happened and i learned a valuable lesson that not everything is as bad as it seems and that with everything i do in life, there will be a consiquence. for anyones who wondering i havent set a single foot into walmart since then, idk i guess im to afraid of getting caught buying something and getting arresested idk. anyways i still havent told my parents, and probably never will. all i can do is thank god for giving me a second chance, and also thank him for giving me awesome siblings who can keep a secret and help me but most importantly forgiving me and my past mistake for all these years. FOR ANYONE WHO STILL STEALS! stop it now! u may think ur not going to get caught but i kno the system now. everytime u steal THEY SEE U. ur probably stealing things worth 4 or 3 dollars. they wait untill u steal enough things to add up so when they catch u and u go to court they have a bigger case againsnt u and then u'll for sure get a record! so all i can say is stop stealing, there are different ways out! think about the consiquences and if that little piece that u cant afford or just feel like stealing is worth it. u dont always need what you want, S*** u dont always need what u THINK u need. be smart, god is love!
Well, today, I stole some fingernail polish at Claires. Not smart- I know. I kind of just wanted to experiment I guess? All my friends have done it, and I don't have money for things. I regret it, and am not proud of it. But I have something free, so I guess it's all good. lol
well i got caught, and is going to court, so what do i need to do? i got no records, and is 22 O.o the stuff is worth 33, funny thing is i spend 98 dollar there >.>
aw well, it my first time, i could just get a fine and a warning >.> since it only 33 worth tsks, we'll see.
i started last year i think. but now, every time i go into a store i don't feel right unless i steal something. if i don't steal something i'll feel regret. i have money, but both my parents lost their jobs so they can't buy anything for me. and i am really tired of paying for everything. but i don't take big things. it started off as things less than a dollar. but today i took something that was worth more than five dollars. i was at victoria's secret and wanted to take a thong with no tag, but i didn't. but i'm stuck in a rut and i know that i need to stop cuz i don't want to lose scholarships to college. i just can't stop tho.
I have shoplifted a lot i'm only 14 so i really never have money. I NEVER got caught until last week I went with my friend and we BOTH took eyeliner and the guy was questioning her and bitch turned to me and she is a good liar who usually never steals and i am an shoplifter who is horrible at lying. So I got caught and she still has her eyeliner -.- They said they are going to send me a ticket but I haven't gotten it yet. so idk..
Oh yeah I have a question.. the eyeliner was only 4 dollars but i was wondering does anyone know how much the ticket might be?
the worst feeling in the world is to get caught stealing. i have been caught today and believe me when i say i was embarrassed. and not only was i stealing i was stealing from my job. in the past year i have stolen over 40,000 dollars worth of stuff. yes it is addicting but i was also doing becuase of finacial problems. this is my first time getting caught so i dont know whats going to happen. the cops were really nice to me and let me go home today. i know a court date is coming and i may serve time in jail. karma is a bi#%$ and it came back to me. i feel sorry i did it, and i told them that. so please people stop stealing as it will come back to you one way or another. please pray for me as i need it.
I steal, and I want to stop but I can't. I'm scared of getting caught, but I think that's the only thing that was cure my addiction...
that would cure*

my friends mom had a doctors appointment so she dropped me and my friend off at the mall and i had my HUGE cheerleading bag and we stole garters, thigh high socks from deb and some really hawt panties from wet seal and today we are going to steal from hot topic :)
i stole for the last time today....so help me God..
shoplifting gives u such a good feeling you have no idea! but when you know you can get away with it you keep stealing bigger and better things and get caught. thats what happened to me. im 14 and me and my friends would go to the mall a couple weekends and steal a couple things. once we got good and knew we could get away with it we went on a spree. stealing hundreds of stuff, designer clothes, perfume, jewlery. until we got caught at this one store because we werent secretive enough and the lady caught us. we got taken back to the back of the store and she took what we stole. we lied to her saying we stole nothing else from any other stores (NEVER LIE WHEN U GET CAUGHT NEVER EVER) she called the cops, the cops came and saw that all together we stole over 1000 dollars. all with holes from cutting the sensors off. they hand cuffed us and shoved us out of the mall. most humilitaing night of my life. we now have a criminal record and they dont seal them anymore. our parents hate us. its terrible. and worst of all, what we actually bought we threw the recetes out. so they took everything we bought too. this was just last night. i guess i was just thinking " society steals from us so why not just steal back from them?"well. youre gonnna get caught one day. we've learned our lesson and im never doing this again. you don't stop until your caught.
I got caught stealing a sweatshirt at sears a few months ago. I was really high and I don't know why I thought I could have walked out with it so obviously. I would've gotten away with it if my friend had just pulled out of the parking lot sooner. Some dickhole came up to the car and confronted me about it. My friend had stolen some bras too but they didn't even know and I couldve told them but i didnt. I had to wait for an hour in the office not knowing what was going to happen to me. They ended up calling the cops and I was arrested. It was so embarrassing because people saw me handcuffed in the back of a police car. Its not fair because my friends steal hundreds of dollars worth of stuff and never get caught and the one time i steal I get caught. They still steal today and it makes me mad because I cant because im too scared now. I wish I was better at it but I guess im not. I feel so stupid.
Today..i stole a shirt from goodwill. I went into the dressing room, actually meaning to try some clothes on and i just stuffed one in my bag. I didn't get caught, and now i have the urge to do it again!! Help me?! I don't want to become a shoplifter but when you do it, you feel so nervous/excited and when it's over you feel like you've done an extreme dare or whatever..it's lame, and not too good. Atleast that's what i think..dang.
Rachel, i understand what you're saying. But you just gotta FORGET ABOUT IT! :D
I stole an item only worth $25, got caught, was VERY embarrassing! luckily the cops only gave me a fine. The store banned me for life, have my name + picture in thier computer system. I will NEVER EVER shop lift again! my only concern: if I shoplifted a few other items in other stores in that mall, could they charge me for those? is there a collection of data out there? I am so paranoid I am losing sleep over this.NEVER STEAL: not worth it, trust me! I was an idiot!
I got caught stealing a pair of shoes. Stupid!? yes, the stupidest thing I have ever done in my life. I thought the shoes were too expensive and thought I did not deserve to spend that amount of money on me.I used to complain about my life before. But since I got caught shoplifting, I realize that it wasn't that bad before. I have to support my family. My mother doesn't work and I have a disabled bother. I don't have kids but I have to support my mother, my little sister and my disabled bother. I am terrified with the idea that I will lose my job or lose the ability to get another job. I have a great job now. I make enough to support my family. I don't know why I decided to steal. It was stupid and I have been regreting it every day since it happened. I can't sleep, eat and can hardly concentrate at work. I'm so afraid.If there is anybody out there thinking about shoplifting, don't do it! trust me! you can detroy your life in minutes.
Gave it a try in highschool the odd time but once I started working it made me appreciate the value of things much more!
Im Twelve and i shoplifted, it was my first time and it was my friends birthday. I Wanted to get her a card and some sweets but i remembered i left all my money at home.. I Didnt think and slipped a toblerone and a card in my bag and left. I got caught they just asked to give it back, i did and left. I havent been in there since and im too scared to because they might call the police. They didnt say anything else when i passed the goods back to them and im not sure really what to do. If my parents ever found out i would be dead. Seriously, dont EVER shoplift, regarding to what ever your mates say, because, if you do get caught youll feel go guilty youll just want to give the store back £100,000 . Its not a nice feeling when you get caught, i felt so sickand i was shaking. Just dont be idiots.
i got caught stealing from kohl's.! :(huge mistakeee.. && i recieved a letter stating i must pay $325. && officer gave me a date to appear in court.. i dnt know what to expect i havent recieve a courtesy noticee....
Im reading through these comments and I really cant believe my eyes.lol I was caught shoplifting at Walmart...when I was about 28 and I always did shoplift. Like some ppl say its and addiction..a rush and it was until the day I was caught. It was and eye opener for me. Its embarressing, humiliating..ahh I wanted to crawl in a hole and dye. I had to go to court if was my first and only offence and I had a clean record. Ppl I can only say from experience it changes your life in so many ways and effects your family. I recently applied for nursing ..and guess what..I need a Criminal record check done. I had to tell my partner ...its like a nasty rollercoaster ride that never ends and in order to get off you have a pay a hefty pardon fee..To the ppl that still are shoplifting..get help..you deserve it..and to the ppl who have learnt there lesson ..pat on the back ...Keep your past in the past and keep looking ahead.
yeah. i have.never been caughthundreds of dollars worthi know its stupid. i know its not meant as a game.but i do it cause i want to
I'm 15, almost 16. I got caught at Walmart when I was in the third grade because I stupidly dropped the items (disposable camera, camera film - don't ask..) on the floor infront of 2 guys who just so happened to work there. I was so young and so scared that I never attempted to shoplift again. Honestly, shoplifting never crossed my mind after that..Until just a few months ago, I found out that one of my friends shoplifts. She told me how she did it, all the tricks, everything. All of a sudden I got the urge to start shoplifting again. I started off with cheap drugstore makeup to expensive makeup and perfume from Sephora. I'm always so scared to get caught again but I LOVE getting all this free stuff. Then I had a dream of me getting caught. My guilty conscience came back. I couldn't steal anymore. Speaking of, that same friend that got me hooked onto shoplifting again, invited me to the Eaton Centre tomorrow and I KNOW she's gonna shoplift like crazy. I just don['t know what I'M going to end up doing. God help me.
I love this forum by the way. Keep 'em coming, ladies. Share your stories! :)
ok well im 14 and i used 2 shoplift A LOT! like scince i was 10 i think. then i was in sams werehouse and i stole some pens and this lady caught me and took me 2 my dad to tell him. Luickily she didn't call the police or anything. i haven't stolen anything scince then, but then we were at the store one day and i rly wanted ponytails and i asked my sister if i cud borrow a dollar or 2, but then i remebered tht she wrked rly hard 2 earn the money so i took it, but then i put it bak,but then i rly needed them so i took it, n when i used 2 take something i wud not feel guilty at all but now i feel HORRIBLE! and im glad i do, i shoud;ve jst left them there, so were going bak 2 the store on friday and im going 2 secretly return the ponytails and actually buy some wiith my own money! so now i can not wait 4 friday! wish me luck.o btw if u think shoplifting is right ur wrong, u may be saving money, but ur commiting a crime every single time u do it, its like killing somebody but less intense so plx tell someone, my parents and i had a long dissucsion about my habit and i was sober and i still am because i got tht guilty feeling, so now im kind of cured. i jst need 2 get more self-control
Kaay so you know what they say about getting caught when you get too greedy? Yeah well, my friend got caught last friday at Garage. She took shorts, tops, etc. As soon as we walked out, this LP lady approached her and asked, "So, are you gonna put back the stuff you took?" My friend panicked and said, "Yeah.." Then the lady asked her to show where she put the clothing back. She didn't believe her so she told a girl that worked there to call security. The LP lady was swearing at my friend, saying things like, "YOU FCKING THEIF! YOU KNOW PEOPLE HAVE TO WORK HARD TO EARN MONEY? YOU SHOULD GET A FCKING JOB." Are they even allowed to curse?? Well after that, the lady searched her bag and found everything she took from previous stores, and the security walked with her to the stores to give everything back and apologize to the store owners. She's now banned from that mall for a year. Sucks though. We just had to be more careful. My friend got let off really easily.. no charges were pressed, no police were called, all that happened is that she's banned from that specific mall for a year.. which we only go to once a year anyways. Now we just gotta watch our backs and take smaller items. :)
Oh by the way, there were three of us. My two friends took stuff (I didn't), but only one got caught. When the LP lady apprached my friend, she didn't try to hold me back, so I just left, texted my other friend to find out where she is, and left. The friend that got caught texted us telling us to get out of the mall, because security was looking for us. I thought you could only "catch us" if someone actually saw us TAKE somthing, PUT IT in our bags, and LEAVE? That LP lady only saw one of us, so technically, she can't assume the rest of us took stuff. She can't touch us. She was such a biiiiitch :@
These Comments Have Really Helped With My Project For SchoolThanks All =]]P.S I Got A + ! :D
I'm addicting to shoplifting, not gonna lie. I'm not poor, but I'm not wealthy. I don't need anything I steal. But I want it and my mom won't buy it for me. Sometimes I feel bad asking her for stuff, so instead I just steal it. I've stolen loads of makeup, jewelry, underwear, petty things.One time I stole something that was fifty cents cause I didn't feel like waiting in line to pay for it.I've never gotten caught and I never feel bad.But I think I'm going to stop, seriously, because these stories effectively scared the S*** out of me.
i have stolen alot in my life but now i think im goin to quit because i got caught and now im goin to court.i got caught stealing a ring a small ass ring for 10 dollaz.and wen security guard took me into their lil office a tryied to run but than got caught.and police were called it ugly steallin.ma friends used to tell me that stealling is not good i just listen and they next day i find something i like i take it til i got caught and now going to court man i dont know if im goin to continue eyy
Over the last few years from 2005 to 2009, I have stolen many things from many different stores. It started out with the small things like "Chocolate Bars" and that type of thing, and as the months when by I became more aggressive.You become more brave after every time you get away with out being caught.After years of steeling thousands of dollars you start to think you'll never get caught.And today I finally got caught,But as it was my first offence, they let me off with a warning. And I did not get criminal record or go to court. However I am banned from the store for 1 year. They said if I ever get caught again, I will be charged and it will go on my permanent criminal record for life.I think in someway I wanted to get caught, because I would have never stopped otherwise. I'm done shoplifting now, done forever.My advice for you all, in the end someday you'll get caught, and on that day think of me :)
I shoplifted stuff n gat caught :P it suck'ed
To all of you who have said you haven't been caught, or those who have been caught and continue: Quit while your ahead. EVERYONE eventually gets caught.
i got caught :(
i'm 15 years old, i just recently started to shoplift. my friend got me into it, once she told me she used to do it, she got caught..i started with nailpolish. and i would be greedy too. i'd take 4 or 5 at a time, never been caught. once i figured out clothes were possible, it's been my latest obsession..i've done research on how to remove security tags & everything, i don't really mind the occasional hole in the shirt. i've been stealing from american apparel lately, about 3 shirts a skirt and a sweater. then i thought it "S***e it up" a little and try delias. i put the shirt in my bag and just kept looking around. all the sudden the ladies came up to me, "where is that red shirt you had?" i panicked. i said i put it back. i still had the hanger in my hand. they said "can you please show us?" i went and i just picked up the same shirt. since there's always doubles. they said okay and let me go. needless to say i'm NEVER going back into that store! i want to steal so bad, the thought of MORE clothes seems amazing. the friend that i previously talked about has juicy couture sweaters, $130...all hers. about 5 of them! victoria secrets panties & thongs, she stole converse. only been caught once. i wish i was her. i just want a bunch of clothes and then i'll stop. i want juicy sweaters and underwear. i know i may seem like a follower but it's so tempting...not to mention my parents ask me where i got that shirt, guys do you have any suggestions that i can say, like "it's a friends" ? idk.HELP
I like to steal expensive clothes and it's a hobby now. I haven't stolen anything until the past year. I don't know why. I was always a church girl and all I did was be a youth leader and then all of a sudden I lost my faith.Two years later, I am trying to do well in school and I get depressed and lonely up at my campus and see pretty clothes that might take me out of my depression... so I took 1 thing and it scared the crap out of me. I met someone though, who taught me how to steal even better... they were guys.. who just did it for fun and knew how to do it without being scared.I started to be fearless and steal expensive clothing and I just got caught this week. For stealing more than 2000 dollar worth because it was all designer clothes, marc jacobs, etc. I went to the police station and i got a misdemeanor. i have to go to court. i sat in the little jail they had at the station and i left knownig that i wouldn have to come back home to go to court many times and be in the ARD program to pay fines or do community service or something else maybe. And then be on 1 year probation I believe. Was it worth it?Well, let me just tell you shoplift girls out there.... just don't get caught. be really careful or you're gonna be like me and have probation and after probation if i ever do something wrong in the future, its jail. that's not good. but hey, if u wanna screw over the society and the corporate world, i'm totally with you. hit me up.
I've been shoplifting for as long as I can remember. I have done both outright stealing, as well as price tag switching. I'm sure I've stolen thousands and thousands of dollars worth of stuff over the time I've shoplifted, and have never been caught. Today though will be my last time ever, since I was nearly caught. I'm living proof that shoplifters can be absolutely anyone. I'm a mom of a three year old girl, and am actually married to a man who works in loss prevention. If he ever knew what I've been doing, I think I'd die. That would be why it stops today. I never actually got caught, but I got taken to customer service at the store I was in to "verify" the price of the item I had already paid for. I was never accused of anything, but of course, I knew that they knew. I count my blessings that they just let it go, I went to customer service and I paid the difference and then they let me go on my way. I'd be a fool to keep doing it....if this isn't enough of a wake up call, then what will be? I'm being given a second chance, and I'm promising myself (and my little girl) that I will NEVER EVER shoplift again. It is an addiction, and I truly believe that you won't quit until you have a brush like this, or actually get caught. The more you do it, the more brave you get. I don't do it because I can't afford the stuff-I just realize now what kind of a problem it really is. You can quit on your own- you don't need a shrink, you just need to get caught, or almost caught. That's probably the best therapy out there for this problem. It takes all kinds- I'm a well educated middle class citizen, and definitely don't fit the profile of a shoplifter. None the less, I'm sure they've been onto me for a long time, and are just waiting to nab me. But they won't get me now- since it stops here. I hope everyone else will read this and realize it really isn't worth it, and you might not be as lucky as me to just have it brushed under the rug without a big deal made. I should really go back to the store and hug the LP person who dealt with me- they didn't embarrass me in anyway when really they had every right to. I'm the one with the problem, and no one else is to blame. So stop today... you can do it with your own will power!
im now seventeen.ive shoplifted lots and lots of stuff....underwear, pants(i tried on one that had no magnet thing and just simply walked out of the store), perfume, mj bracelet(its was intense), shoes, clothes,makeup,wallet, books..huge departm. stores where there arent a lot of people are best for shoplifting. esp. in the mornings-but what i do is: i buy one or few things i really need at a store and i shoplift some more stuff so the workers dont get suS***ious-now im like an expert at it, - i never got caught. i felt so bad the first time- but i just cant stop now. its really an addiction. its fun. its like my biggest secret, nobody knows about it. i do want to stop though, i dont know how.
Who hasnt shoplifted before? I've done it, gotten caught, did it more and more and more. Mainly money...because i'd rather the money then anything else but...thats just me...but no. I want to stop...its a bad habit that you grow and it really SUCKS!
yeah, I did two days ago and got caught and now I'm caught up in a huge lie with my parents about it, tonight's the night I figure out if my plan works out, hopefully.. and I'm a teen and everyone has done it at least once so it really bothered me when the woman who arrested me like flipped on me cause she probably did it once too and it was a goddamn mascara from walmart. I'm banned for a year lmfao.
Yes, I was caught even though I didn't intend to take anything and I got the full treatment, handcuffs and all, except for jail and criminal charges. (Thankfully.) Well, if you want to read about what happened to me, go to allexperts.com, click on "Alphabetical", go to "Private Investigations and Security", then look for a question I posted to Andrew a few days ago. Too long to describe here. I found out there's a lot of wrong information out there about what store security can or can't do to you. As Andrew explained to me, they have reasonable grounds for suS***ion and they can legally and forcibly - believe me - take you prisoner. All that stuff about having to follow steps where they see you hide something are policies some stores have to make sure they don't get sued for "bad" stops. A lot of stores, like the one I got caught at - are much more hard ass. Plus, even if you don't have anything on you, if they "detain" you there are no grounds to sue as long as they had "reasonable grounds" to think you stole something and as long as they don't go over the top on the use of force part when they grab you. I'm just glad I didn't fight with the lady who grabbed me. She could have legally kicked my butt in self defense if I had.
Just posted last comment. Don't know why but the word "suS***ion" came out screwed up.
Dang, it misspelled it again. It must think that the word for "suspecting" somebody is porn or something. Go figure.
yes I shoplifted as a teen and have no regrets. I didn't as an adult as I had too much to risk. I would be horrified if my kid did it, but I feel no remorse or regret for what I did .A grate essay to read is " why i love to shoplift from big corporations " by anonymous . google it .what will blow your mind however is that I am loss prevention manager. I arrest shoplifters every day.
LPWow. You're right, the last line did blow my mind. Does it bother you when you bust someone for doing something you did?If you're interested maybe you could read the story of what happened to me. It is too long to describe here, butyou can find it this way: go to allexperts.com, click on "Alphabetical", then "P", and go to "Private Investigations and Personal Security", then look for a question I posted to Andrew on August 25, 2009 under "Shoplifting". It was a pretty traumatic experience.I already have Andrew's opinion but I would like to hear yours if you would. I am also wondering if you think I could have handled the whole thing better. Looking back on it I kinda think I made matters worth with the security guard by trying to explain that I didn't intend to steal anything.
me and my friend are 16 and got caught stealing at sears yesterday, earrings and a bracelet. it was stupid and now i feel so scummy and disappointed with myself. i also disappointed my parents and i wish this never happened. We have court soon and idk wahts going to happen. im nervous and i will NEVER do that again. its dumb, and if i would have gotten away with that, iw ould have felt so guitly.
I've been stealing for years,and yes I know its wrong ,but it stops today I got caught that not a good feeling. it comes a time when you have to stop. I know its fun and you get alot of free stuff but it always finds in you in the end.
i stole a number of years until one day i got caught..the end.. F*** mall cops. all i can say to anyone who thinks stealing is a rush and fun think again..for stealing a 2 dollar item, ended up costing me 2500 dollars total and thats to be put on probation, which i violated so its going to be more then that. PEOPLE ITS NOT WORTH IT it will RUIN your life. this will haunt me for the rest of my life, i feel no meaning in life anymore b/c i feel my career is going to be gone and that im in school for no reason b.c i wont be able to get a job.
im 13. i got caught yesterday me n my friend took about 4 things each. worst experience of my life . thankfully i dont have to go to court but i cant go in any woolworths owned store (including Big W which is where we stole from) until im 18. it was makeup and so stupid we were just walking out and the beepers didnt go off when some lady came and run up to us and said have you payed for the things in your bag. we said no got took to a room at the back of the store. she talked to us and searched our bags. after an hour the poilice came and gave us a lecture and we had a formal letter saying we cant go into these stores. our parents came and picked us up and now they dont trust me. i regret it and wish i could trun back time =(
I remember going to the mall and I was in the mood for shoplifting so I stole 3 shirts from zumies all I had to do was pull the price tag off, and my friend had to distract the cashier so I could walk away then I stole from steve and berrys and got 5 shirts then I stole from hot topic and got some makeup =]
I would steal anything i could get my hands on, at the Mall like Jewely/ pants/ Candny etc...And got caught last week for it! now i have to go to Court!
I don't shoplift. But I dress diffrently like a "emo/Scene" kid so I get watched all the time..It really bugs me so it makes me wanna steal S***
i did the something and i can not sleep i dont know what to do i shoplift at sears and i got cough i never don anything like this ever i dont know what happen to me and i take perfume i walk out and guy came i was so afraid. they tuk me there office take my id and made me sign. after few minute Police came and give me ticket and i have to pay 100$ that is no problem but what im afraid of is, is that gonna come in my record if yes then im gonna die i can not face my self. Im realy depress i just can not do anything day n night im thing of what i have do. i can not face to god to i realy need help can anyone help me plz...i fill like dieing.
I have, and I got caught today, I was so lucky the police weren't called, I would have got it on my permanent record and it would have really affected my future. My parents are so angry and are sitting downstairs right now. Its like a blessing in disguise though, it's really shocked me, and now I will NEVER EVER do anything like this ever again. Not even anything like skipping out on a train ticket or something. I'm so ashamed. It's true that they say people don't realise what they have until it's gone.
I started to shoplfit this year 2009, and it got so addicting I would take make up and never got caught. Sooner or later I started to take clothes and jewelry and usually I don't even bring my wallet with me anymore! But of course i know one day i will get caught, which hoepfully I will stop by the time 2010 comes around!
Well, you can tell the shoplifters are just SO incredibly intelligent by their grammar and spelling skills. u hv funn steelin!
Im a shoplifter. I've stolen countless times. And yet, I can look myself in the eyes and know everything is worth it. Just because I'm not spoiled doesn't mean I shouldn't live a lesser life. To me its a game; me against the millionaires. And I always win. I have no regrets, no qualms, and no fears, besides being caught. When I think of what a bad person I am, I smile... and laugh. But I'm definatly not crazy, its just the way of life I've chosen to live. Fellow shoplifters; kudos comrades. I hope you never get caught.
I've been shoplifting since i was a little kid. Usually just gum and stuff when i was grocery shopping with my parents. I moved up to movies and clothes now and just last year went to electronics such as ipods and the like. I'm 18 and I've never been caught, but i've had close calls, i took off the electrical tag but didnt realize there was also a soft tag on it and i forgot to take it off, so the alarm went off, but i just held up my arms and turned around and everything and the lady in the store said it happens all the time. For about 2 years now ive been lifting professionally, doing jobs for people and such, and i've moved up in price ranges, first it was like american eagle stuff, now its to up to highclass expensive Ed Hardy, Gucci, Armani and things like that, and i get mass amounts of money, i have a legitimate job that i dont steal from, but lifting i make at least $1500 a week
I'm 22 and I do it. I've never been caught. I think only 1 in 40 shoplifters get caught. and usually it's kids and girls. lps are bullies for the most part, and will usually just call the cops if you aren't a 14 year old girl. i dont think it's "wrong" because that is subjective, but i sometimes feel too old to be doing it. i've stolen stuff with other people paying me to do it, but now i mainly just steal things i need like food, clothes, and books. i will NOT get caught unless its by the cops. i park a long way away and will fight lps. there is no way i could even begin to remember all the times i've shoplifted. Its an every day thing. i dont have a job so...
yes i have i do ALOT 2 last week i went on a spree, i stole a pair of shoes, from wallmart two bikes, 5 redbulls, 2 monsters, 2 rockstars, gum an ipod, 3 5hour energys, a shirt, jeans, some chocholate bars, a hatchet , a 71/2 inch knife, 22 lighters and a belt. im going to do it again today
I am professional shoplifter. I do it 8 years. I took merchandises from all stores more that 1 million dollars for this years. I was cough only 3 times. I now how works security people and security systems. I have income - welfare only, but I have all better. I have best eat, best clothes, best toys for my kids. I did it and I will be do it.
Caught shoplifting a few days ago in SEARS. wtf...Normally, I don't even go to that S***ty store...So, I dont really know wtf I was thinking..I saw like pretty stuffs...I started jacking them..putting them in my bag, and then it got so outta control..im just taking off tags...and concealing them in another bag in the store...I totally forgot that theres so many black balls on the ceiling watching me...yah I was caught...that guy's voice is still ringing in my ears,"we got her we got her!!" yah so eff me. Then I realized that I took about 600 something worth of stuffs...damn.Im only 16..they called the police, guardian came. signed papers, but I never got a citation or ticket or whatever u call it from the police..He told my guardian that the letter will come in a couple months telling me to go to court...geez...stupid, never gonna do it again..FML..what r they gonna do? BTW it was in California. DONT SHOPLIFT. U'LL KNOW HOW I FEEL WHEN ONE DAY U R CAUGHT.:"(
I think I might be addicted to shoplifting, I never really realized it until one of my friends I had actually got caught with in the past told me. I started reading about it on the computer and I think I really might be.I started when I was about 16, bc me and my boyfriend were in hollister bc I had just gotten paid and I wanted to get some clothes, apparently he didnt have any money (we had just started dating) and he was like you know, you should steal this for me. I was like nooo, i have never done that and he said yeah well my ex use to do it for me all the time and you know that makes you feel bad unless you've been with them for awhile so I started thinking about it & I agreed to do it. After that, we started going all the time and doing it, he never would though.(that should have told me something right then when he wouldnt do it)and I would go in there with a huge A&F bag and it was be huge when I came out with stuff sometimes hanging out. I didnt get caught the first time until about a year after I started, I was in Abercrombie and I stole 3 polos, jeans and a beanie for my boyfriend, and i got away the first time I left & I went bak in there for I dont know what and when I left the guy followed me up to buckle and watched me and I showed my friend what I had got, and walking bak down the hall he stopped me and pulled me over to the store and he said he wanted bak all the stuff so I gave it to him and he didnt charge me, he just told me not to come bak..that didnt stop me, i kept on. Then one day I was in walmart with one of my friends and she was like I want this key chain and i was like okay, and by this time I had stolen tons of stupid stuff, like mouth wash, tooth brush, tooth paste, hairspray.. just anything and everything and the one thing they caught me stealing was that key chain .. and I was walking out and they came up to me and said where is this? and i was like ummm right here and i put it in my pocket ..idk why i didnt put it in my bag but it was a good thing i didnt, bc thas where all the other stuff was.. but I gave it to her and she was like do you have anything in your bag? and I said No (even though I did) and she held up something i was gonna steal but didnt, and she said wheres this at? and i said i threw it down out there bc I knew you guys saw me get that keychain and she said where? and I told her where and she told one of the workers to go look, and I was like "you can look in my bag if you want." and she said no, i dont know why but I believe you. and she was like why were you going to steal this, it was only $1? and I said it wasnt for me, it was for the other girl I was with and she said oh well didnt she have a dollar and I said I guess not bc she ask me to steal it for her. and she well im not going to ban you from walmart bc it was only a dollar, but if u come bak in here and try to steal and we will be watching you bc I always remember a face, and we catch you stealing something I will charge you, and you will be banned from walmart and I said okay and that was it. then I quit for a little while, but I started bak up about 6 months later and I was with one of my friends and it was the day before christmas and I didnt have any money left to get my dad anything so we went in jcpenny and I stole 3 ties for him and a coffee warmer and my friend stole 5 pairs of panties and they caught us. They said they profiled me by my bag, bc they watch for people with big bags like that, bc they are usually the ones that steal and told me they had been watching from the moment i went to the bathroom when I first came in til I left. I got charged that time, went to court, got put on probation and had to pay $600 in fines and a expongement fee bc I work at a elementary school plus the probation offier, and I swore after that i would NEVER steal again and I didnt for about 8months, then I went to Kohls and wanted some shoes and a shirt, tried that & got caught, didnt get charged tho. I stopped for awhile, but picked it bak up here recently & I was in the same walmart i got caught in 2 yrs ago and got caught, with my 4month old baby girl and got charged, what i had was total 68 something. I told my boss, the principal and she said if I got charged it was put on my record and I couldnt get it exponged I would lose my job and there would be no need for me to go to school to be a teacher because no where would allow me to teach at their school system with that on my record. Im suppose to start school this summer as well. When I got charged last time, it was in a different county so I dont know if i would be able to get another expongement since i got one before but its in a different county? if anyone knows this, would you please tell me. Ive worried myself to death over this
i was in the 8th grade wen i started shoplifting . i never even thought bout commiting such crime until my more experienced friend introduced me to it . after that , i passed my knowledge to my more innocent friends & they started as well . ohh how life was sweet . i did it because well clothes , makeup , acessories are expensive & also that big corporations are just so fcken greedy . well one day i went to walmart with a friend & we decided to get some discounts . we were stoopid , our bags were stuffed with random S*** & needless to say , we got caught . that was the only timne ive ever gotten caught . the security ppl were fcken jerks , they were mocking us & laughing . anyways , they said they were gonna call the cops but instead they just told us to call our parents . see i didnt give a fuhk & the tears didnt come out till i called my momma . the thing was my momma believed in good old fashioned asian parenting & she was christian as well , so wen i got home the beating started . not just that day , but a whole dam week & not to mention her reminding me every now and then of my mistake . i had to pay like a $150 fine & i was banned from the store . i stopped discounting for awhile , but i recently started again . i didnt want to , but you have no idea how tempting it is everytime i go to the mall . i know if i get caught again imma get beaten half to death , but its an addiction . the idea of the mall being your closet , picking & choosing what so ever you is well , like a dream come true . i dnt know what to do , i cant stop .
i started when i was with my friend at the time who was a bad influence. she stole many things but i only stole earrings and a braclet. i felt guilty but not enough to stop me. i would make my brothers take me to the mall and then we would split up, and i would go to places like aeropostale and take camis. i would slip them under my clothes and take of the censor. another thing is i took makeup, like eyeliner. i stole a shirt and a cami from hollister. i told myself i would only ever take small tank tops, but then buy something to make up for it. one day, i had stolen a shirt from hollister and i wore it. my mom didnt recognize it and made me tell her where i got it and show her the reciept. of course i didnt have one and i felt so bad that i got it off my chest and it made me feel better. i wont do it again. my mom said she will donate it to charity because i wore it, but we have to go to hollister and apologize & pay for it. i dont want to, its embarrassing :/ ive learned my lesson though. it was addicting, but once you have a wake up call you realize what it could turn into.
i have stolen many things. from underwear underneath my clothes to clothing iteams to makeup. im 14 and i know its bad but it feels so good to walk out of a store knowing u didnt pay for it. but afterwards sometimes i feel guilty. its a bad habbit to form.
I've never personally taken anything but, yesterday I was in Hot Topic with one of my friends. We walked out and she said "look at this shirt I just got." I was confused because we hadn't bought anything. She pulled out a shirt from her bag and said she had jsut taken it. I had been wanting a bracelet in there but was not willing to pay $7 for it. She got it for me by ripping the package off. We also went to fye and took a couple stickers. That's all I've ever done - even though I didn't actually take it. It still counts though I guess since I ended up with the stuff at the end. I don't really feel that bad but I couldn't imagine taking shirts and big things.
i stole endless crap with my mates, im 15 and have taken clothes jewlerry perfume makeup candy curling tongues bags and loadsa stuff aint been caught but a couple of days ago we were doin it then we went bak to my friends house to sort it out anyway she was also gettin rid of makeup so i said that colours good on me and she give it me so then we went again like 2 hours later and i walked through the door the beepers went off a crapped myself the women said are you comin in or goin out cus your settin the alarms of you silly cow i goes alright love i'll leave ive allready got what i need i found out the makeup my mate gave me (she paid for it from another shop) had the tag on and went off in the shop
To all the people out there , stealing is BAD .I've been caught once , yes .I can tell you it's not funny at all ,But looking at things in the another angle , stealing is really , really adicting .It's also scientific proven that stealing is addicting .Most teenager steal for thrill , while adult do as they have mental illness like depression .Do note this's not a joke .In singapore , asia , this is a very strict country , secrurity is hard to F*** with , and yup ,i steal almost anything mostly hair products .I'm always very happy when i manage to leave the store , But think again , Can you sleep without guilt , No . Continue to lie to yourself saying stealing doesn't affect you , i say it will .Even as i'm typinng , i tell you i was caught two years ago , and that i've not been stealing FOR A LONG TIME .But recently , i don't wtf is wrong with me , i took a pack of choco and stuff it in my bag , and have been taking again .I CANNOT controll myself .To all those people who're stealing , i tell you , Be careful , don't get caught .To all those who think we're stealing for rush or S***s , i tell you No .We're so addict it's F***ing hard to quit .I am ashame of stealing , but i can tell you i am an oppotunist , and that i'm also a pro-shoplifter .Be note that it is VERY hard to shoplife in singapore .A develop nation , all camera pointing at your face .AMEN .
god all you stupid 14 year olds who are freaked about stealing lipgloss no one gives a F***. i just started stealing again. its a hobby, i loveee shopping but my 8$ph job doesnt really let me buy everything i want, my money is spent on food and gas [im a college student sooo yeahh...] in fact i just ordered a tool to get sensors off clothes. to all you stupid little girls who steal and get caught: stealing is easy if you do some research and youre SMART about it. read up on lps and what they are told to look for [HINT: if you dont know what LP is you shouldnt be stealing...] i have done hours of research on stealing and am pretty good at it. just BE SMART and know who you are dealing with. if you get caught just give it back say youre sorry and as long as its not over 100$ worth they will prolly just give you a warning. happy "shopping"
has anyone shoplifted and had the cops visit you (like at your house) AFTER you left the store thinking you were safe?
ive only stolen once and it was just makeup not even 30 dollars worth... i am a little freaked though cause my friend stole to and she went back and saw cops there. but she stole way more things than i did. but guilt is freaking me out
I have stole a few things. 2 lego sets, an Ipod touch (asked the employee if I could pay up front, he just gave it to me, opened it up, took out the Itouch along with the cables, and put it in my pocket) 21 inch acer computer moniter (snuck it under the Wal Mart garden center gate), and batteries (I cant see paying $19.99 for 10 batteries)
well... i wouldn't say that i havent shoplifted before. But i dont think it's wrong. Some people gotta do it to survive. and if this was a perfect world, then there won't be any shoplifting.
No I have never shoplifted before and dont really plan on it ether. But i have alot of friends that do so if they peer presure me I still dont think I will do it.
It is a sin to steal. Repent of your ways by changing your behaviour before you get caught and before you completely lose your soul to the Evil One. Choose a more proactive hobby.Joy
I got caught recently at Zellers but I wasn't charged and got a caution (no record) and the police didn't come. They did say that I will get a civil recovery letter in the mail. I found several sites that I shouldn't pay this since it's over 500+ and it's a quasi-legal practice and that they've lost this case against someone and for a theft value of 20 in my case and for lower ones, it won't be cost-effective. Is this true? Does anybody have any experience with this?
I was kicked out of a sample sale today for trying to shoplift a pair of shoes. I finally realize that I have been stealing things to try to replace the loss of my daughter 1 year ago.I am ashamed, embarrassed and sad. I am going to talk about this with my psychiatrist and find a 12 step program.
i went to the mall with a friend of mine the other day. We went into claires and she tried to steal a pair of earrings. (I had no intent of stealing anything btw...) She took off the packaging and stuck it in a bin somewhere. She was going to BUY a headband from one of the shelves on the wall and when she reached up it fell out of her sleve! Neither of us noticed but, boy, the two Indian workers did! My friend kind of flipped out on the people saying that she "found them with no package on them" but they didn't buy it and it was scary but amusing to watch... so then we just poked around for a few minutes to make us look unsuS***ious and we left. We were sooo scared! We went into another store across the mall and she pulls out a keychain she took! Talk about and IDIOT! I was pretty mad at her... but it was funny! ♥cAr!sSa
Im in 8th grade and started shoplifting a few months ago because of my friend who introduced it to me, who was a VERY bad infulence by the way. At first i told myself i would only steal little things like eyeliner and makeup, but then it started to become bigger more expensive things like clothes from Hollister, Abercrombie, Hot Topic, jewerly, shoes, and whatever i thought i wanted. Hollister and Abercrombie i didnt feel so bad about because their prices are so high and their clothes are so cheap they deserve to be robbed. I wish i had never started to shoplift, but i only feel guilty for a little bit and then its a rush and im never bothered or guilty after that. But its become an addicting hobby for me now.
i stole heaps of things one day with a friend. we got caught in the last store we visteded. they took all the stuff form us. i lost the trust of my parents. i have now got a police record and if i wanted to join the police i couldnt.. i got away lightly. DO NOT DO THIS. please.
I shoplifted today and got caught about an hour and a half ago. I got a few items that I did pay for and as soon I stepped outside the store I heard a man's voice say " excuse mam, can you please come back in the store".At that moment my body went totally numb!! He then directed me to the back office where he had me sit down. He then asked me why I was shoplifting, I couldn't deny it! He then got my handbag and took out a toy(small one),3 bottles of liquor and sandals. All while me child was there! He took down my name , drivers license, address and debit card number(I don't know why they needed it) anways, he had me sign a civil demand notice , allowing me to pay for the items I took. So I'm gonna receive a letter in the next few weeks with the total amount. I only thank god, that no cops were called nor a picture was taken . I guess bcause he knew my son was with me!! As a consequence, I'm not allowed back into that store and if I do I will be arrested. This was a total wake up call for me! If u think u aren't going to get caught ...trust me , u willsooner or later! I will never do it again!
Never had. I was raised not steal or take anyones property. I guess it works I'm in my mid 50s
Can anyone tell me why they took down my social # and debit card # ? I'm in California . For the people who think they may never get caught just wait , someone will b watching ur every move when u least expect it... Bam!!! I'm telling you , it might even feel like someone just poured some ice cold water on your back!!!! I never ever want to feel that feeling ever again.
I stole something when I was 13.It was an accident though, technically and I wanted to bring it back but my mom told me that I'd just get in trouble even though I didn't mean no wrong.It was a bikini bottom. I was trying swimsuits on with my friend (bottom over my underwear, of course, it'd be gross if there was nothing under it.) and I must have forgot to take it off. Anyways I left and didn't realise I still had the bottom on until four hours after, after going to the bathroom while my parents went out and I was 'pet-sitting' the dog (he used to chew everything up) I called Mom right away, and I told her that I had forgotten, I was basically crying, I felt really bad. She didn't care because she knew me and she knew it was an accident. She told me not to bring it back, because the people would assume that I had actually stole it, and I had just felt guilty and brought it back. I ended up putting an extra $5 in the tip box though, haha :)
once i stold at sears and got caught and now i got court
I used to, but typically small things. Make-up, cheep rings and necklaces and such. But I stopped once I turned 18. Didn't want to risk getting caught once I could he charged as an adult ^^U
i have NEVER shoplifted and i dont want to.think about it, if you get a good job with a good pay, you could advance and get a better pay and have a good job them eventually you will have enough money to buy it instead of shoplift it! it can ruin your life if you get caught, it goes down on your records. you can pay fines and go to court or even jail. not worth it.
i shoplift evytime i go to the mall im 14y/o and i skip skool and go to the mall nd steal clothes shoes aand evythhing elseonly been caught 3 tirmes and got away with it without my parents fidin out :D
I went to aeropostale and stole 3 camis. I went in the changing room w/them in my purse and walked out w/ them under my sweater. I thought i would get caught and i burned them, and i never plan to steal again.
I steal all the time! And i feel really bad! i can't stop i swear! And seriously i can't really afford it. So when i steal stuff i don't really use them but when i Buy them i do. It's a waste of my time i know but i can't stop! i seriously need help! today i stole make-up from wal-mart panties from lasenza , more make-up from body shop! And...idk. It's really addicting and annoying. i KNOW i will get caught one day , and im trying to stop! i know i can too...i just need motavation!:P plus my friends always do it! I swear since the begging of highschool in oct. i started i swore i stole over $10,000 NO LIE.
never stolen anything...yet! im 14 though so ther is still time. I don't really care if other i don't know steal though. I mean hey it's bad but ther is plenty of other bad bulls*** other do anyway so wtf.
I used to shop lift a lot until I was caught today. I can say it was the scariest thing in the world. I was in a hurry and did a sloppy job of it...the worst part? The undercover LP looked right at me when I did it! He stopped my mom and me on my way out in front of everyone.He questioned me and made me feel like S***. I was so scared because I had shoplifted there before. I took a pair of shoes and put them in a different box to get them for my mom...big mistake.I'm paying $200 for shoes that were $50. And I'm over 18, which meant I was running a huge risk of being arrested but because I have no priors (which is technically true...) they're making me pay a fine. Not that I think they would send me to jail for trying to screw the store out of $20. I tried to save 20 bucks but I'm paying 200 now.I don't have the money have to borrow it from my brother who is on disability. How pathetic is that? I learned my lesson today. After being called a criminal (that just hurt...) it was a wake up call for me.
i just stole like m500 $ of stuff everytime i go to the mall colognes candy food condoms lighters clothes shoes
I stole once at a grocery store...It was $10 worth of makeup... My fathers friend was a security guard there and caught me on Camera... Told my Dad, and my Dad dealt with me...I never stole anything ever again.
14 years old and I got caught two weeks ago. It was terrifying!!! Just as I was leaving this guy stopped me and took me back to the security office. They asked a ton of questions and took a picture of me. I sat in the office for over an hour scared for my life! Finally the cops showed up and arrested me! This is my first offense and they put me in handcuffs and walked me out in front of everyone. My family is so upset with me and the cop said I might go to juvie for this . I got court in three days and am scared. Could I go to juvie for this? I will not shoplift again.
i have been shoplifting since i was 16, i'm 21 now, and I got caught for the first time in five years last month.i would steal entire carts worth of groceries on a regular basis from meijer. i also stole clothes, jewelry, make-up, shoes, just about everything from all sorts of other places. i once made $12 at Wal Mart by returning something that I had found a receipt for in the parking lot, and buying a bunch of groceries and things that still didn't total up to the thing that i had 'returned'.i got caught leaving meijer with $224 worth of groceries in my cart that i didn't pay for, i got fined a total of $500 from the court and the store, which is no where near the amount of things i've stolen in the past.i moved to a different state and i want to keep shoplifting, but i probably shouldn't. =/
i shoplifted a lipgloss when i was 17 just for curiosity ... and got caught:( i would never ever ever ever do it again.
I once stole from Claire's and got caught. The clerk called security and they banned me from the mall for a year and i am not allowed to go to any claire's stores ever again. But they wont know im not allowed since they didnt take a pic of me because im a minor. :) But i do regret doing this because my family was so disapointed in me and it's a heavy burden to carry because of the guilt.
Stores are so easy to steal from. It's kind of ridiculous. I don't steal every time I go to a store or anything, but I have taken things. The biggest thing I ever got was a shirt and I've only taken one shirt. I was pretty scared but did it anyways. Shirt, undies, books, bracelets. Things like that.
I started stealing when i was roughly 11 or 12, (when i started high school.) i got caught very soon after i started. and its only made me start to get smarter about it. and boy did i get smart doing it. never got caught after that. done it till i was about 16. i wouldnt steal petty stuff either, id get the stuff thats worth money. there was a time id go every weekend with my friend. each day we went together we would steal around 2000$ between us, this went on for about a year where we would get just as much as we could possibly think of,we stopped getting so much coz there was really nothing we didnt alredy have, had an endless supply of clothes so many we wouldnt even wear half of them. i stole christmas and birthday presents for evryone where family would wonder how i got the money. i stole makeup and beauty products-thousands of dollars worth. everyday after school id go and rack about 6 dvds and sell them to people to buy ciggarettes, smoke pot and alcohol.. now i am 20. have stopped it all b4 i turned 18. i work for all my money. i buy evrything i own now. and karma has really got me. i buy my new clothes all the time. and they alwayz go missing. and if karmas guna do this to me. the amount ive bought compared to what ive stole. my karma hasnt really even started. stealing is bad, but once u start doing it and your good and ur getting all this good stuff. its so addictive and hard to stop.
I shoplifted as a teenager a couple times then I stoped. Im 21 with a good job but i was tempted again and I did. Days later I did it again with some cologne got caught but ran. I droped my cell and was found now Ive been sentenced to 3 yrs. in prison cuz of my juvinile record. DONT FALL INTO TEMPTATION!!!
last week friend and I everyday at lunch we would go down to a local department store and steal chocolate bars and gum for ourselves and friends. didn't really think about shoplifting before but one day she told me she shop lifted there and then i asked her if she wanted to go with me at lunch the next day and we made a habit out of it. we even stole some clothes for my friends.i kinda feel bad stealing clothes cause its something you wear everyday (or often at least) unlike food which you eat the same day and it's gone.
I used to steal candy out of the bulk bins once or twice. But then I felt really bad, and I don't do it anymore.
I guess the moral of this site should be don't steal from sears.
well i shoplift jewlery nd sometimes cloth but i really want to jack a straightner nd some shoess its getting addicted i got caught one but i was 9 and my cusin forced me to do it..anyways i wanna stop buht i want to have things for free i mean it feels good.im not poor or anything buht i wanna make my money last:P...
To all those people that are still shoplifting, you should just stop. Really. Because you will get caught one day and if that day happens to be after your 18th birthday, you have no chance of wiping it off of your record. I got sucked into the shoplifting thing by my friends and I got caught. It was a pretty bad experience. I wasn't really freaked, I just felt numb, like I wasn't in my own body. I think, that getting caught and being forced to take a look at the consequences for shoplifting is something that needs to be done. If you never had to face the seriousness of what you did, then you'll never stop.
I got caught yesterday with 86$ worth of stolen merchandise. I am supposed to go on a trip in exactly one week (the 19th. When i was caught i was told i would get a card with my court date on it. For anyone who has gone through this, how long does it take to get my court date? And how soon will it be (as in will it be at least a month away?)
yeah makeup a few months ago and got caught.and i will never do somthing stupid like that again
When i as 12, I stole a toy...from inside a cereal box. Was at market with my dad, he was doing whatever, I as just wandering around. They had these 'toy story' key chains giveaways inside a box of Cheerios or something. I wanted it. Didn't want to ask dad, cause i think we already had cereal at home. So I waited until nobody was in the isle, opened the box, took the toy out
Today I tried shoplifting some lipstick (lipgloss, mascara, eyeliner). I put it into my bag, then walked to the bathroom and took everything out of the cases. When I walked out, and employee was there and she said that she didn't want to embarass me infront of my mom but she saw me take the makeup. I told her that I did and gave her it back, even got the cases out of the bathroom. I don't think she reported me, and I wasn't charged. I just gave it back, and told her thank you.I will never do it again! I think that people don't start feeling bad about shoplifting until they get caught. I have that woman at the store to thank for not turning me in. If I would have lied, that's what would have happened though. It is a lesson learned. It is only a mistake if you don't learn a lesson. I feel bad, but I thank the gods that they were looking out for me because it could have been ALOT worse.
Today I went to the shopping department store and I knew I was going to be shoplifting from this cheap store, they sold really cheap stuff such as mens cologne was six bucks. I knew because I shoplifted from there twice without getting caught.Today I went there and stole a glove, cologne, birthday card and walked out without getting caught. I went there second time and stole another cologne. The third time I went there I stole a cologne and put it in a plastic bag which I had, the worker there saw the bag and was waiting for me outside of the store. Then she said to me "Can I check your bag please??" I was really scared because I knew my bag and the plastic bag was filled with the stuff I stole....But I showed her and I was humiliated because there were a lot of people in the store and I was apologizing to the worker so badly ... This other worker was telling other worker to call the security but I was saying Please no I will pay for all these. Lucky they didn't call the police or the security. The total price of everything I stole is around 20-30 bucks... Cheap but not worth it...One of the most frightening moments of my life.. Don't shoplift. not worth it
hah, so i work at sears and truthfully its actually very easy to steal from the sears that i work at. the security tags dont make the beepers go off. and we dont have people checking the fitting rooms to see who goes in there and with what. im thinking about stealing from a maurices that i live near. they dont have beepers. and i would only take something without security tags. just put 2 or so shirts on under the one i already have on. hmm idk though.
really dudes don't steal. I mean like seriously you may not have much money but use the money you do have to go to school and get a job that pays well so you dont have to steal. and yes i have stolen once when i was six but i didnt know i was carrying it because i was asking my dad for a some candy and walked around with it and just walked out. I was so scared when i had in my hands drriving home. i showed my parents it and said it was an accedent and we went back and payed 79 cents and i havent stolen and I am now 14 years old with job that pays 50 bucks a week. but i save it up go shopping with like 150-200 bucks and pay for it all and then when i dont have money left over i leave without even LOOKING at stores so guys try not to shop lift and if you are embarrased to go back and pay for watever you stole. next you go back and BUY somthing (not steal) just put in the extra money for watever it was and say just keep the change and leave. it will be like you didnt steal since you payed for it.
No, but I think I'm about to.I had taken 2 of the same necklace up at the counter of a clothing store. I told the cashier I only wanted 1, but he didn't hear me and put both in the bag(and charged me for both).. I caught it and told him to please take 1 out, he did, but i didn't realize he hadn't taken the charge off.I walk out of the store before I realize I paid for 2 necklaces. THEN I go back, they said they'd give me a refund, but the manager took everything out of my bag (I had bought a lot of stuff) and repacked it and it's only after I got home that I realized THE NECKLACE WASN'T THERE. So I went from having paid for 2 and only having 1 to having paid for 1 and having none. What a ripoff.So I'm going in tomorrow and telling a manager. If they don't cooperate, I'll just take one. I know that's bad, but I'm not in the business of giving money away free to big companies.
I'm currently 13 and I love shoplifting. Im not going to lie. I know its bad, But I just have no conscience, my family used to be rich when I was little, so I never cared much and my brother got all the expensive things, not that I'm older and actually do want things, we have no money.So I started doing it, quited for a while since I felt really bad (when I was 9) now I'm back at it, and is going at it like crazy. Every "shopping" spree, I take about $50 worth of things, It's just so easy, and something to brag about. Not to mention all my clothes are under 5$ and makes me feel cheap.I know I'll probably regret it someday, when I'm older. But now? I can't think :/ All I want are things. I honestly hope I get caught once by a nice lady so I can stop. Sigh
i dont even steal.

i'm a religious person. i should never shoplifted. but i did, and i got caught..and the police came. they never pressed charges because i had never done it before, and i didn't put anything in my bag I just walked out with some stuff in my grocery bag.. not my purse. i got a warning and was banned from those chain of stores for a year. i wish i hadn't been so dumb.
When I was about 5 we were at Liz Claibourne and I was organizing the earrings. I couldn'tt find matched for two hoops, so I just took them. I feel terrible, but at the same time I laugh for doing something to stupid.
I really want to shop lift. I got 1 year left till Im 18 years old.. so hahaha yeahI feel the urge of just taking away things, we were VERY rich when I was young, now im 17, in 1st year college, and I really need to be in line with my friends, theyve got all the xpensive things and stuff.. I feel left out.
For everyone that says "Oh, these big fat cat corporations can afford it". Sure, the big people at the top of these corporations can afford it, but the companies still lose millions due to external theft, and it has to come out of somewhere. They take it out on the people who work in the stores. People just like you, not rich big-wigs, people trying to pay bills, raise a family, whatever. In the company I work for, if you earn a quarterly bonus in your store and your shrink % is above the company's shrink %, they take a portion of your bonus. Money that I EARNED HONESTLY, gets taken away from me because stupid f**ks like to shoplift because they get an adrenaline rush. So next time you think "Oh, I'll just steal $30 from this corporate chain because those big-wig f**ks at the top can afford it", remember that you're not 'putting it to the man'...you're taking from the clerk who is trying to make an honest living. Way to be a S***.
i once stole about 20 pounds of food from an asda in my local area,i gathered it all and put it in my bag and walked out. i now feel terrible and i have turned over a new leaf. never again, i have a hounest living now.
i steal and still do im scared because my cuzzins got cought but not me and when they go ot court im scared they mite snitch on me... i stold toys, a dsi charger, cds, silly bangs,fake cigaretts, and etc i feel guilty but i still do it
I shoplift from Dollarama every time I'm there. It's so easy and I probley jack around $80 each time. I also shoplift from Ardenes which is another easy hit but you still have to be careful because the employees are paid to deter shoplifters and I also shoplift from Stitches. =] I don't feel guilty ever and I'll continue to do so until I get caught.
i started stealing alot starting at the age of ten i got caught and thank god they let me off with a warning. for two years after that i struggled sleeping every night for about 2 years. abit later i started stealing makeup for from any store and candy from the dollar store and 7 eleven. for some reason i got really nervous the last time i did it and i brought the stuff back to the store. i'm am terrified that everybody will find out about my shoplifting past and that everybody will hate me. i need some advice!
Do you realize how embarrassing most of your stories are? I understand a lot of you are young and it’s easy to tell by your exaggerated stories, thanks for the laughs. But next time you decide to steal think is it worth it to get a criminal record? It might not seem like a big deal but when your friends are going on vacation and you are not allowed to leave your country because you stole a headband think is it worth it? When you go to apply for a job and they ask if you have a criminal record and you answer yes because of theft NO ONE WILL HIRE YOU! Think about that next time you go to steal, it doesn't matter what your lame excuse is ITS STILL WRONG criminally and morally.
I used to shoplift when I was in my early teens - candy and make-up mostly. I only did it for a year or two and I didn't like the guilty feeling that it gave me, so I haven't done it in 7-10 years :) I have a "friend" that has stolen from me numerous times, I'm at the point where I can't stand her anymore and I don't want my friends to feel that way about me. My brother has 2 children and uses that as an EXCUSE to steal as well because things are so expensive. Yes, LIFE IS EXPENSIVE, DEAL WITH IT. In my opinion the people who make themselves feel better by saying "I steal to live" are pathetic! If you can't afford yourself, what makes you think you can afford a child? Your child deserves a better life than that! They shouldn't have to live with mommy/daddy being in and out of jail all the time, when they can't get up and get a 2nd job if need be!
Does anyone know where to go if you have a problem with shoplifting? I mean help-wise .... I need it!
i was at walmart and i bought a cd adn when i was caring it around it started to vibrate (kinda) so i put it on the shelfand grabbed another one of the same cd .... i that considered shop lifting??
what are the concequences or chances of getting convicted of stealing Items in Purse, Bag even when the person did not try walking out the store with the items in illinois
ive shoplifted tons of times, but i got caught and now i never do it, its wrong and immature, i dont know why i ever did it, but i know one thing im never going to do it again.
sadly i have. i will never do it again . it makes people feel so bad about themselves . i recently did it and i was caught on camera . im not sure whats going to happen to me. im so scared and i will never do it again.
i used to steal. it started when i was trying to find a job and time after time i was rejected. after around the 30th interview i was blindly angry at the world and at god. i did it coz i had little money and i wanted the world to pay. i would feel guilty after a while and stop, fail another interview and the cycle continued for 2.5 years. i was eventually caught, stopped stealing and found a job soon after.i'm glad i was caught and would advise people to not start doing it. I always thought doing bad things means that you are a bad person but i've learned that you never know what a person is going through and you can't judge them
yes, once me and my dad went to home depot when i was about 6 or 7 and grabed a handfull of washers , dad found out when i showed him . did not know the concept of shoplifting duh.
I did it at sears. my senior year in highschool on the day of my prom. a necklace. I got caught and they were nice and didnt call the cops. but I did have to pay $250. it was the worst experience of my life. My b.f (of almost 4 years at the time) was so disappointed and angry and we almost broke up because of it. When i think about it (7 months later) i shudder and want to cry. I was and still am so ashamed. I can't go in there for 3 years (until june 2013). even after the 3 years are up i still probably wont go in there because i'm so embarrassed.
i guess i feel a little less lonely than i did at first, seeing everybody else's stories. i'm 22 and just graduated with a 4 year degree and this is the first year i'm trying to make it mostly on my own, financially. i started shoplifting a few months ago to try to help make ends meet, and after a lot of successes, i guess i got lazy.i got caught at meijer yesterday, with some cold and flu medicines and bandaids and stuff in my purse. the security lady stopped me at the door and took me into an office where she wrote up all kinds of papers describing what i had tried to take. she was actually really nice about it, i was so scared and nearly in tears. she called the police, and an officer came (who was also really nice) and wrote up a report. as this is my first offense, i think i'm going to end up REALLY REALLY lucky, they told me there's a program where i can pay a fine and do some community hours and in return NOT have this go on my permanent record. i was shoplifting mostly to make ends meet, and partly for the thrill of the success, but it's so stupid because it's so not worth it, i'm more than paying for what i tried to steal with the fines i'm sure i'll be charged. last night was sleepless and awful, i just kept imagining what it would be like to have to call home and tell my parents. i'm so grateful that my wake-up call isn't going to be more detrimental than some community hours and fines (dear God, i hope).i know times are tight, guys, for those of you who shoplift because of genuine financial stress, but please believe me, you don't want to live with the feelings and fear i have right now. if you get caught (and security equipment is getting better all the time), odds are good you'll be worse off financially than if you'd just bought the stuff. learn from my stupidity... and please please keep your fingers crossed that us first-time offenders are blessed with fines and community hours and NOT stains on our permanent records.
i shoplift all the time- wallmart, albertsons, target- you name it. true story: me and my friend LITTERALLY STOLE CHRISTMAS- we stole everything from christmas ornaments to canned snow to cake mix and christmas lights and candels. by xmas eve the house was looking absolutley gorgeous and to think we had stolen it all...XD
i stole from raleys me an my friends would go get food or drinks and just go sit in the cafe eat it and leave, im always a lil paranoid to get caught, its just so much easier to steal from actual peopl like pickpocketing or just searching peoples backpacks at school where theres not cameras all around you
I steal when I'm on holiday. They are usually very trusting and don't have cameras or keep an eye on you. Also they will never see you again so it's easier to get away with it.
i stoll money from some guys truck but i was only 10 and well he never noticed but i did get cought by my mom red handed and that was the worse day in my whole life
I shoplifted a few times out of necessity. I took some sheet sets and things for the bathroom from sears. I did it 3 times the fourth time I got caught. It was a real cry for help. Finally got the help I needed and moved on.
I got caught shoplifting, under 40 dollars. So far I've got a 325 dollar fine from the company I stole from.. and now I might lose my job and have to pay a grand for the college course I'm taking that my job is paying for. Oh ya not to mention, I havnt told my mom yet. Even tho I'm 19 and I live on my own she. Will still freak on me, same with the rest of the fam. But you know what, I did it. And I'm gonna deal with the consequences. Even if they are a little harsh
I stole a 50 dollar pair of headphones the other day. I went into the isle.. grabbed the package like I was going to buy it.. brought the package to another toy isle.. and set it in a hidden spot, left for a bit.. then came back again. I put my hands under the shelf where I put it, and quickly ripped the package apart, and left again. I returned, took the headphones out, brought them to the gardening center, (outdoors) and set them outside a small fence. I left the store, and grabbed them.. then I was on my way, 50 dollars richer. I probably would never do it again though. I mean, I didn't get caught this time.. but it's definitely not worth having a bad record.. when I could just save up from my job. Anyhow, good luck to all you kleptomaniacs :]
I lifted a carton of cigerettes for my husband. So we could buy a Black Forsest Cake, it was that or the smokes.So I lifted the smokes, and got my cake to.
Was caught stealing at Safeway for a total of less than $50. It was so absolutely and so incredibly humiliating and embarrassing. At the time I was extremely depressed, thinking that I am pregnant which could affect my studies significantly and a family member was in ICU. I even saw someone following me in the store suspiciously, I could put them back and walk away but I was so detached from the reality as if I am in a game of cat and mouse. The stuff that I took were not even needed and I did it right in front of the camera. Still don't know what I was thinking when I did such crime. I cried and cried and cried and knelt in front of them saying how sorry I am. I am a very ethical and educated person with a bright future that could be doomed in a matter of seconds. They took my IDs and let me go after I pleaded with them for half an hour and crying. I am supposed to get a civil demand letter and cannot imagine how to take money out of my account without my husband noticing which will be million times worst than what I have done. I wish to die and deeply and sincerely regret what I am committed. I woke up the other day seriously thinking that everything was just a nightmare and had to spend some time distinguishing between dream and reality. I SO regret and I am SO ashamed of what I have done. I just wish to die and if my husband becomes aware, divorce and disgrace would be nothing. I will set myself on fire in front of that store.
Cannot imagine how some individuals here are doing it with joy. Please consider getting help and Please stop ruining your future. It is so not worth it to live with humiliation and like me to sometimes thinking of committing suicide as a consequence of what has been done. I must learn how to live with this embarrassment that I have brought to myself and how to work in a highly trusting position when I have been proved guilty of dishonesty. Please think twice, I beg of you, please don't let temptation, depression, poverty, revenge from corporations or any other motives that you might have burns whatever you have worked hard for in front of your eyes. For those who steal groceries, remember we should live with 1/4 of what we eat, the other 3/4 goes to doctors in future. Please stop it and stop it now. I can relate to how miserable you'll be when you are being stopped one day that won't be too far.
OOk so I have been shoplifting numerous times in the last 6 months and never before did I ever do it. it becomes an addiction. Today ( I even hd money for it).I tried walking out of the store with a sandwich I didn't pay for... just like 10 x before.. what I didn't know a genteman was watching me and asked if I paid for it.. I said yes...and he ask for my reciept. I acted as if I forhot sumthing.... waked back down the isle picked up something else and paid for my sandwhich.... how fu#$%& obvious and embaressing..I'm glad this hppened cause I never want to feel that feeling again... good uck to al you shoplifters!! But I will never do this again. I couldn't imagine going to jail for something like this....
there was one of the vending machines in a school room with snacks in it. the kind you put coins in and turn, well i found a way to stick my arm all the way inside it and stole 3 honey buns, 2 twix bars, and 1 m and m. im not a kleptomaniac but it is fun having the sticky fever high.
You guys please don't steal my friend tells me all about stuff that she steals but I know some things cost a lot and you don't want to buy them . Well I have thought about it but there's no way in h**** that I'm gonna shop lift cause I know my friends and family would be very disappointed with me . I hope you guys quit you habits of stealing (:
i've lifted from my school bookstore a few times, a couple more from those sales where some stores put their clearance stuff outside. never been caught, no plan of stopping anytime soon.
I steal around $50 whenever I go in a drugstore. They are my favorite to hit. So easy and usually way understaffed. I take makeup, nail polish, lip balm, candy, lighters, knickknacks, whatever is small and easy to pocket and something I like. I have enough money to buy anything I would ever want at a drugstore type place but I feel sick if I go in without taking more than spending. I feel cheated even though they're getting cheated from my stealing. It's just so easy, and I'm damn good at it. Been stealing hard for the last year, same stores 5x (then I stop going there because they can compile evidence) and never been so much as stopped. I stole 2 nice nail polishes, 4 different good lip balms I'd been wanting, mascara, some other things too. I don't get a rush from it, I am just so greedy and I've had a hard life (not financially) so I feel cheated by society and stealing is my way of getting back. I've been taken from so much and not just stuff dealing with money so it's easy to justify.
Some of you need to realize that there are some serious trolls up there. For those who said you love shoplifting or you don't feel guilty, you're just in denial or you want to piss people off. I have shoplifted a lot, and it was so easy. But the remorse I feel now is overwhelming.
im sixteen years old, ive been in foster care for 5 years, and yes, i steal. i only steal cuz my foster parents never get me the things i need, like tampons, shampoo, underwear, jeans, shirts, the whole shabang. now i might be addicted to it, i try to stop cuz i no my luck is running out and they might be watching me, but i dont have anything. my fosterparents wont let me get a job, they dont give me money, nothing
jackola3.....i well and truley could not give a toss about feeling bad for stealing, i live in the uk and at the minute i havnt got a job...obviously you all may no that many foreigners take our jobs, leaving alot of us fighting for the same position in a job. its hard to even get a interview, nevermind a job. then theres the fact that the government are robbing, theifing bastards themselves, paying for holidays and homes with OUR well earnt tax money, robbing our whole nation and not just with money our government are lying scum and i couldnt give two S***s about stealing, tesco, asda (walmart)there huge co orperations who are basically ROLLING IN IT but i have to struggle and eat S*** until i get my next pay...no...why should i ? when i can go and get some nice food from asda...if it wasnt so expensice and everything going up all the time (prices) then maybe people could afford to actually live because the ridiculous high prices are pretty much asking to be robbed. food,clothes, makeup, toiletries etc. bills for your house, phone bill etc.HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO LIVE? the government are sitting comftably, why shouldn't we? im sick of being controlled by them robbing tw*ts.
I just got caught shoplifting at a Grocery store, 28.00 worth of items. I was not arrested but have a court date in 3 weeks. This is my first offence. I am so ashamed at what i did, the sad thing is i am 53 and a grandmother. I am scared to death, i can not afford an attorney and do not know what to except when i go to court, id it will be a fine or what will happen. This was so stupid of me and i will not be doing this again. Any advise, what is going to happen without an attorney. Thanks
When I was 17, a friend dares me to steal stuff from a lingerie store. So I told her I would if she would. So it was a compitition. She chickened out after getting just a pair of panties, while i walked out wearing 2 bras, 3 panties, and a teddy.Every so often I still have the urge to try again....
All the time. It's kind of an addiction. I am an artist/crafter and supplies for this stuff are expensive. Smaller shops are harder to get out of, but the big craft superstores are surprisingly easy. Silk screen ink, jewelry supplies, top grade markers - I've even made it out with yards and yards of fabric. Honestly most of it I don't need, and I don't steal clothes and I would never take from a mom and pop type store. Corporate Giants however, they price things because of shoplifters. I might as well give them a reason.
ive stole lip glosses before
I had a friend who is a very bad influence and once we went shopping and she started to shoplift. she took 2 bras from ardenes and forced me to shoplift with her. so i took one bra... and now iam addicted to shoplifting but i really want to quit :(
What is LPs
I used to all the time, anything and everything. I just got caught last night. Definately was not worth what i went through.
I have a huge addcition to shoplifting. Its not just me its my whole entire family too. We stole things we need laundry soap, dish soap, carpet cleaner, tampons, everything. i hate to pay for things like that i just feel like im giving away money that i dont have to spend. Last nite my entire world crumbled. When we were leaving walmart we got pulled over in the parking lot, the cop make us take everything out of our car and had me handcuffed in the police car for 2 hours while questioning my family. my sisters, my mom, and i are all in huge trouble. BUt the sad thing is i feel like i still want to shoplift. i can picture myself paying for tampons and stuff. i know this is horrible and we all need help. we all have now screwed up our record, we have 30 days till court and we r not sure what to expect. I want to stop and need help. I just wish we werent so poor. the officer also said we would each be getting at $3,000 dallor fine. I am just so down right now. Iknow this was wrong but its addiction i cant control. It feels so good to get away with it. I seriously need help.
I can't believe what I'm reading here. You ladies are total trash.
I've started to recently because my friends were. That's not an excuse to start, I know. We went to the mall and got some stuff there. When I got back to my house I felt horrible. I am horrible for doing it. I never, ever want to do it again, but if I stop now will I still be forgiven? I'm scared.
Everybody makes mistakes- just be glad that you are ABLE to stop! Don't be afraid. You are forgiven because you know it's wrong and are willing to stop.
Yes....I've stolen. I look through all of these comments and think back on what I have taken. I'm only 15 and I've probably taken over 8,000 dollars worth of stuff. I can't remember what I've stolen but I know it's not worth it. I've never gotten caught, but my friends have and let me tell you, it's the scariest thing in the world watching your friend get searched and knowing that could've been you. I feel for the people that don't have enough money to buy basic things in life. Sometimes you just need to do it to get by. Honestly, the people that steal aren't always the typical "emo" kids that you expect to. I'm blonde, blue eyes, tall, poP***r, straight A student. Being sucked in to this because of peer pressure can happen to anyone, and once you see the other side of what you're doing(the side where you can get anything you want, without spending any money) you're hooked.I've stopped now, even though whenever I walk in to a store, the urges are strong, to just grab something and take it....my thoughts are "Why spend money when you can get it for free?" My boyfriend wanted me to stop because he doesn't want to lose me, and I stopped because I can't stand to lose him if I got caught. He's worth so much more to me than a shirt or some jeans. You may say I haven't learned my lesson because I haven't gotten caught...but I think I have. I will never do it again because I've found someone more important to me than an addiction, and instead of hating me for doing it in the first place, applaud the fact that I had enough sense and guilt to stop and look at the bigger picture.
I'm 19, and I've stolen a few times. They were never anything big or expensive, but that doesn't matter. I still feel guilty every time I do it. I've taken a few small chocolates, worth like 57 cents from the dollarstore. Even though it was dirt cheap, I still feel bad. My biggest shoplifting experience was stealing school supplies, like pens and erasers because I couldn't afford them. I felt so bad after, that I threw them all out:( Those are the most expensive items I've ever taken. I still occasionally nick candy from the dollarstore, but I want to stop:( I feel really guilty after:(
Well,I have stolen so much make up and wellness stuff from Walmart,and I don't think I'll stop anytime soon:)
I was in zellers yesterday, and i had been smokeing weed, and was going to picked up by my dad. However, i have a history of being caught smoking and/or under the influence of weed, anyway i went into the store to steal some visine so i wouldent get caught by my dad (i have stole visine before so i didnt have a worry in my head) But this time i was just about through the door and a lady asked for the visine back and called the manger ,she explained that the ploice would be called and my parents would be notified and that would be even worse, so as soon as she called the manger i ran out the door.
Yes i shoplifted 5 times. one time i got caught, and had to go to court and a lot of other crap! ITS STUPID DONT EVER SHOPLIFT!
people judge shoplifters as scum without thinking. has it ever occurred to them that shoplifting of large companies and big corporations is good for the economy? the only people losing money are the people in higher up positions in the companies that are already rich, the lower workers at the bottom will still get paid their minimum wage/ their hourly regardless of theft. & shoplifting provides people with so many jobs. from the security camera/ tower/ tag manufacturers to the loss prevention and security guards. they all get paid because of the existence of shoplifters.
when i was 5 i went to the zoo with my daycare. at the cafetiria they have a section for chocolate and other candy.when i was walking thruogh looking for some candy i saw a caramilk. i felt really bad cause it was my moms money that she gave me to spend and i didnt want to use it. so when nobody was looking i shoved the caramilk into my pocket and walked away. i was so scared i that they would catch me i didnt go back for almost a whole year.
i stole some drinks and candy bars and i was told to leave and never come back
only thing I'm worrying about is tonight I shoplifted AND I HATE THAT !:P :PPPPPPLOLOHNOOOOS***!
my boyfriend steals a lighter everytime he goes into a store to buy smokes
can a mystery shopper get u for stealing if he has no proof of it except seeing it by eye and i had items i had purchased earlier that in my purse and cop ask what she stoled and the mystery shoppers says i dont knoww what she stolen
I am addicted to stealing i have never been caught and i steal probably 2-5 grand worth of stuff a week and im 16 and ive been doin this for 2 years, i am just really smart about my S*** i even stole a car and took it across state lines got stopped and got away with it because i was legit out my S*** if i ever want anything i just go steal it but you have to be smart so you dont get caught :) people who say shoplifting is dumb is retarted because its so easy you cant get caught
one day i went i was going camping i went and stole like 150 dollars worth of steak and hamburger and all the food and drinks and condaments you would need to go camping and left then i went to a different store to buy a torch and lighter fluid because that is cheap and i had lots of money and they told me i couldnt buy the lighter fluid even tho i had my id so i just walked out with it after paying for my torch and i didnt get caught its so F***kin easy i love it ! i get whatever i want whenever i want like if my phone dies and im driving around ill go steal a phone charger in 5 minutes so i can charge my phone lol ^^
Well i have a sad story...i was introduced to shoplifting by a friend i mastered the act until one day i was so foolish to go to debenhams at 9am to steal. I got caught got fined by the police and the store and now have a record. I dont advice it but its very addictive this shoplifting thing. I learnt my lesson and stopped after that but got back on it again when that friend came for a visit. I'm off it now completely!! I hope.
I have shoplifted. Usually at kohls, i can eaasily put jewlery, loation, in my purse. I also steal jeans from time to time.
i stole from claires for my friend tht was to scared to do it an I got caught. i regret doing it and now i have a court date tomarrow. And i will probally go to juvy
amazing that those who have stolena nd continue to steal have no guilt....really....your parents and YOU will eventually pay the price..humiliation and possibly a mark on your record will eventually lead to jail time...do you look forward to sharing a cell with vagrants, prostitutes, drug users..keep on doing what you are doing and that's where you will end up.As far as NEED...seriously...get a job, get two/3 part-time jobs...many people can't support their families and they don't resort to stealing..if you steal because you believe that you are entitled because the prices are too high or that you are owed that item..give your head a shake...as a young child or even a teenage I can see "testing" the water..but if you continue to steal and feel no remorse for making the prices higher for the rest of us to cover your costs of theft...then I hope that you get caught and have a worthwile punishment.Maybe having the judge have you wear a sign around your neck stating ( I Stole from X) and stand at the entrance to the store you stole from would be an acceptable punishment and make you think twice.I think that the courts and stores should do more to discourage theft. Also publicshing the offenders name in the paper would be a GOOD start.~!
Well I just started shoplifting. I don't shoplift huge big stuff to make a profit usually I shoplift makeup and small useful items. The first time I did it (Two weeks ago)I felt kinda bad and scared when I was taking the packaging off the mascara but when I made it out of the store fear turned into excitement I got away and it was so easy. I have been shoplifting ever since. I am not allowed to wear makeup so I steal it when i'm at the store with my mom so I don't get in trouble for buying it. I have stolen Fit Me Foundation, 3 things of Eyeliner, Mascarsa, chapstick, hairspray, those salon effects things, eyeshadow, a pop up brush, Garniar Frutics anti frizz serum and those wisp mini tooth brushes (those are cool btw). I have been shoplifting for two weeks but I did research before I started shoplifting I know that you can never be too careful and that everytime you shoplift you have a chance of getting caught. I want to start sealing clothes from Aeropostle and Hollister. I just don't have the money for their clothes because I don't get allowance (I'm kinda poor). Our mall is in a smaller town Ocala FL. We don't have a big crime rate like some other cities and I never see any tags in the Hollister clothes and I don't see any cameras the store is dark and really loud music is constantly played no one is at the changing rooms you just walk in plus it is pretty big. Aeropostle might be a challenge because it is smaller than Hollister and it is lit up and IDK if any music is played.
today me and my friends went to scheels and we stole some key chains, and minature football helmets, we though we were clear but then a store secrity officer came behind us and than took us in to the back room and call the police then our parents for $4:00 worth of stuff and now im banned from the mall for a year and a scheels till im 18. I thought that was ok until the cops sayed i have to go to juvinal court dammit ps im 15
I don't know i went into a supermarket and i asked m friend if she had money and she said yes so i followed her in she got lots of sweets and it equaled 1.42 m mum called me and walked out of the shop and i saw m friend walk out i asked her if she paid she said no. I feel scared the police will come however i didn't steal anything what should i do?
All the time! Me nd my friend only stole from drug stores, bath and body works, and clairs. But we just started stealing clothes since we found ways to get sensors off. Havent got caught yet :)
I shoplift at academy all the time. All you have to do is take stuff out of the packaging and put it in you pants or something
I went to walmart with a friend ! She wanted to steal i didn't but o did !! So i got caught and she blamed it all on me!!! So now i think i should tell her mom all the things she has took and the drugs she did(:
People that steal and try to justify it are pathetic. You are STEALING that is money that someone else worked hard for. Get a F***ing job
My friend and I went into a dept store to look around. We were looking at some of their jewelry. The lady let me actually hold some of it, but I couldn't afford to buy it and gave it back to her to put back in the case.When we got in the car, my "friend" showed me a necklace she'd stolen while we were in there. She was smiling and all proud.I was so PO at her! She used me as a distraction so she could steal. If she'd been caught, they would have thought I was in on it. I ended our friendship. Maybe she would steal from me next. I'm still mad about it and it happened a very long time ago.I thought she was a nice person. She was just a lowlife theif.
dont steal i just got caught by walmart i had over $150 dollars worth of S*** it not my 1st time i stole big S*** it is the 1st time i got caught the best thing i stole was turtle beachs from best buy they cost 170 and i sold them to a friend for 40 easy money
I'm 14 and I shoplift all the time! From little local stores though, I do it with my friend. we have been doing it since last year and we are hooked! I feel really bad for doing it, really I do but it's so addicting! I really want to stop, but it's so tempting. I even flinch whenever the phone rings, that's how bad it's getting. Hopefully I can stop before I get tempted to steal bigger things! :(
I did twice when i was 12. Once, I stole a redbull from a coffee shop and the other other time I stole a bottle of axe from a rite aid. I never got caught, but I wish I never did it now.
Im 16 and im sooo addicted to taking stuff from big chain stores. I stole today from hollister and american eagle. I went to the changing room in hollister with a sweat shirt jeans and a tank to try on and grabbed a box of perfume on the way then ripped the security tag off the tank (only left a small hole at the bottom) and opened the perfume took it outta the box then put it into my purse. Then i went to american eagle and did the same thing but only took the perfume. I also stole a phone case from the phone case kiosk at the center court of my mall. Theyre so over priced and have so many theyd never notice. Ive stolen numerous things from walmart by slipping them in my sweat shirt sleeves when im hilding them then dropping them in my purse. I also do it with pregnancy tests i just put my arms up in the shelves and open the boxes and slip them into my sleeves then walk away
Today i stole a £1.50 pen by accident. i went to get my money out my purse and got panicked as i couldnt find the right pen. i left that one in my purse while i was looking for someone to help. i am 17 will i get arrested?
I stole lip gloss today. Felt bad for a little bit...then I realized that the lip gloss was horrifically overpriced, and got over myself.I'm probably never doing this again...but it isn't as bad as a S*** ton of you make it seem. Lol, so yeah.
Well, when I was 5 I tried to steal some candy. My God sister FREAKED on me and I never did it again. A couple years ago my wife and I realized some tooth brushes in the bottom of our cart weren't payed for. Ooops. Otherwise I never do it, not worth the gain and I'm really not that poor.
I sincerely hope that all of you who steal so shamelessly get something stolen from you. Those things you stole belong to someone. That someone pays people their wages so they can live their lives. Your stealing cuts their hours, and jacks up the prices for people who actually pay for their goods. It's not a "waste of money" to buy those items with your own cash. Money went into making those items and putting them on the shelves. That money is NOT WORTH LESS THAN YOUR OWN MONEY. I bet it wouldn't be so funny if someone mugged you on the streets. I bet if someone shoplifted at your own store, you'd be fuming. If someone broke into your home, you'd be at a loss. If someone took something from your bag while you weren't looking, you'd be angry. You are a selfish twat who doesn't deserve those feelings.
@ all those who seem to think if you steal your a bum and need a job. Get off your high horse you silly b***hs. If your child was starving you wouldnt think twice about stealing to feed him/her if you had NO money. Some ppl are disabled and cant get disability and steal to feed themselves. You are being a twat for thinking your better. And as for "those ppl worked hard for that money" again Silly B***hs! its made by machines! and even if it was made by a actual person.IDGAF. Know why? because those ppl dont help me or care about how i make my money. Why should i. So PLEASE STFU!
Reading through these comments, I see a lot of people saying they just steal from big box stores, because they are rich. That has nothing to do with it. Stealing is wrong. A lot of people say they have been doing this for years and no one knows. But you know.
when i was 7 i stole a mr men book fron asda i felt so bad afterwards that i woudnt go in asda for years but today i kinda tryed to shoplift again in wilkinsons on the pick a mix you weigh the sweets ur selfthen stick the price tag on i stuck the sticker on ...but then put more sweets in my friend told me to do this but the women at the checkout said this is heavy check it so the other women came back and said 3 pound 56 and the sticker said 2.12 i was so embarrases but i insisted thats what the machine printed i feel so bad how do i get over it?

I'm not going to go into detail, but I steal. A lot. I know I have a serious problem and I can't stop! How can I? I need serious help!
i did, and im scared of karma so i'm gonna admit to it, and then try and find a way to take it back haha
a kid in my grade 7 class has stolen 500$ worth of stuff
I steal quite a bit. I usually just steal groceries, and alcohol. A lot of people think it's wrong, which I understand, but I only steal from huge name corporations, ones that I already shop at anyway. Like Kroger, for example. And believe me, if you think a few hundred dollars worth of theft is bad, just look at the fat cats running those companies. They're the ones who are stealing.
I have enough (other) bad habits,but don't steal, and here's why: When I was very young,(can't recall how old, but the counter was up to my chin, lets put it that way, so I must have been pretty young). Anyway, I stuffed a bag of Dubble Bubble under my top, so I was old enough to know I was doing something wrong,(a.e. hiding it under my top),anyway, when my mom & I got out to the car, she looked over and asked what I had there. What happened next might seem (mean) to some people, but I have to say, looking back, it was the right thing to do, and I'm proud and thankful that my mom did it now. She marched me back to the store,made me apologize, and give it back. The few extra minutes my mom took to teach me a very valuable lesson, I'll never forget, (to this day). It's funny, because I know today i could probably get away with it, BUT that shame and fear of the chance of being caught and the humiliation that accompanies the deed just wasn't worth it to me. And like I said in the beginning, I have enough bad habits already, glad that's not one of them. Thanks Mom
I stole something today and now i feel bad:,( im not returning to the store for a good 2 months and throwing the item away...
I Just Started Shoplifting Over The Summer And Honestly... Its Kinda Fun.! I Steal Teddy Bears, Jeans, Shirts, You Name It All. I Kno I Can Get Caught Anyday But For Right Now..I Just Do It Because My Mom Wont Buy The Clothes I Need.People Dont Steal Because Theyre Poor (ImNot) They Just Do It For The Thrill. But TBH Im Not Going Too Quit For A While. :\
I have worked in loss prevention for over 19 years. With that said I was screwed over by my previously employer because i refused to let a coworker get her ass kicked. I was fired but I claimed my revenge... I stole over 65K in merchandise as a severance package. Never got caught, they never had a clue, their shrink was just a lil higher that year.....But they still made a 1.1 billion dollar profit....DLP
yooo dood i stole toylet papah coz sun I wuz out okkkk...
I just got caught today and it was awful! Terrible feeling especially if ur toddler is with you :(
i just stole a cookie from our school bakesale for 50 cents
I stole a condom because I was really embarrassed to buy it in front of a very religious friend. When I was in high school I stole one Starbucks latte. The latter I did with friends so I didn't feel that bad, but the former I felt really really REALLY horrible. I'm a goody too-shoes so I felt like a horrible person
Im backk and bow ive gots tons of new clothes and perfume and stuff from hollister and abercrombie aerie american eagle its so easy to take stuff just wear nothing under a sweathirt bring a purse with scissors cut the sensors off the clothes and put them on under ur aweatshirt its easy!

my parents both committed welafare fraud which was basically stealing over 150,000 dollars when they were already rich and living the good life. I was only two and the only thing that comforts me is that they were immigrants and they say they didn't know any better. I'm not sure what I think of this. I have a terrible memory of this that still haunts me but that is besides the point. my mother got arrested 2-3 times in recent years for stealing and changing tags to buy things cheaper such as putting sales tags on things. honestly, this makes me so nauseous. everyone tells me what a great mom I have because she does everything for me but it makes me feel incredibly and unbelievably bad when I see her bring ANYTHING home. I assume she stole it or did something injustice. the fact that we are RICH, living in the HILLS and etc, it sickens me how greedy and selfish my parents are and makes me hate them so much that I simply can't even stand them and I can't tell anyone why. but, I know my reasons are valid and I can't wait to get away from them. I understand young people doing it because seeing my parents constantly do these type of things, I had the misconception that it was okay for me to do also. I stole at random times from numerous stores whenever I went anywhere even with my friends at times. I never cared because I was around 13-16 and my parents had not taught me any better. today, I am 17 and will be 18 in the upcoming year. I am going to be an adult and when I look back, I see my own faults as well. I actually got in a huge fight with my mother one day about making me go to school after waking up at 4 AM for a stupid TV thing we had to go to as support for my uncle. having the F you attitude, when I got dropped of at school, I ditched immediately. I went on the metro and took it to a mall. I remember listening to angry rap songs. I was so fed up. I went to target and stole a bunch of bras and didnt get caught. I feltgood because since my mom made me feel like S***, I could at least get a bunch of free stuff and not listen to her. I then proceeded to the nearest mall, I stole so many things from so many stores. I finally got caught at one store where the feeling I got was UNDESCRIBABLE. I ran away and basically got a chunk of my hair pulled out because they caught me by pulling on it. I can't describe how I felt and how much I cried, begged, and pleaded. I remember the police officers asking the manager if I was crazy. they made me feel like I was the worst person alive and I couldn't believe what they thought of me. in the end, they made me return MOST (not all) of the things I stole. I, handcuffed and walking with them, had to go to every store and sign a paper that I can't return and had to apologize and return the things. it was truly the worst day of my life that nothing could ever top. it was actually so bad that I cant imagine going through it again and I think I have distanced myself unconsciously from that day to better myself. after that, I went to the station behind the police car where I remaining handcuffed and walked past all the "losers" there, I didn't feel as though I belonged. even though actions speak for themselves, I do not believe that is who i am because that is someone who I do not see myself as. long story short, don't do it and if you have, simply stop and move on and be a better person! I know this is an extremely long post, but I would also like to add that I have stolen lots of stuff and money from my older cousins who now hate me so I hate myself and my parents because I became them if not worse. the only thing that comforts me is that I stopped and changed and I know in my heart it is forever and I can't say the same for them, and I am also very young. everyone has a past. I have become a better person through these situations. sucks learning the hard way but you need to forgive yourself
Stealing is a disease especially when you know you have the money to buy the things you steal. Its a filthy habbit, a habbit that i have come to realise by divine intervention (perhaps), that i now need to stop and will. If i was poor/dying and the only way to survive was by stealing then its justified.It felt good to take things from big multi-national stores with profits in the millions, as you know it would not affect their overall profit-margin. But i did not like the person i was becoming. So now i am free and if i have the money to buy things i will pay for it and if i cant afford it i wont steal it.Peace!!
My bf shoplifted at a department store and of course it went all wrong and he got caught he ended up having to go to court and get a lawyer I have never been so scared in my life as I was when I saw the cop arrest him know that thing that was only 35$ turned into 3,500 can u imagine having the feeling of fear day and night and not sleeping with the worry. I don't want anyone to go through a this kind of situation u shouldn't go through it and don't make others go through it either trust me it's NOT WORTH IT thank Jesus Christ for hearing my prayer. any making things all better. God bless u all and always remember jesus christ loves u all.
I used to steal candy bar but i got caught my friend would steal school supply's and Walkmans and never got caught
Dont shoplift. Please I would do ANYTHING to take back that night. I got caught and I'm still waiting to get my court date. Stealing is very serious. I hope you all that still steal stop and look at yourseleves and say that you are better then that! I wish that I didn't do it cause now my future in becoming a teacher is probably ruined. Learn from my mistake and dont do it before its too late.
I stole once when i was 11, i was at a little department store and took two chocolate balls out of those mesh bags :P Never got caught but i'm such a P*** so i won't do it again! LOL
steal a fijit friend. i've never stolen.
fijit friends r stupid
So...I've been stealing a lot. At first I never did, for fear of getting caught. THen I was put in a bad situation where I felt I had to so I started stealing food. I got too comfortable with that and started stealing other things like random cosmetics,alcohol,expensive hair products..Yes I'm a diva. Let me tell you, you WILL get caught if you haven't yet. Is it really worth having to pay over a thousand dollars for something that would of cost you under a hundred??Especially if it is food because the grocery stores have gotten better in their survielence, and are willing to spend money on Loss Prevention. Plain clothes officers walking around like they are shopping. Let me give you some advice,..don't do it. Let me give you some other advice if you do get caught. When you are "arrested"..don't say anything. Don't admint anything.Don't let them talk you into explaining why you did it. You won't go to jail unless you have warrants. You will have to show your I.D or they will call the cops to verify yourself and..that's embarassing even more. If this is your first time, you won't go to jail but really, it's not worth it. Most likely they are going to press charges against you and that means you are going to get a notice in the mail summoning you to court. If they don't press charges (you have to ask) it is just a civil fine. But that is expensive,too and if you dont pay that you will get a notice to go to court so I recommend you just pay the dam* thing. So if they press charges...You will have to get a lawyer. I recomend you pay for one to defend you.If you don't want this on your record it's possible but you better have some money saved up or have your parent's help you because my way was not cheap. You need to plead NOT GUILTY as your lawyer will explain why..but tell your lawyer that you are bipolar and haven't been taking your meds. Then you will need to go to a (preferably new)doctor THE NEXT DAY you got caught, tell your doctor you were diagnosed as Bipolar in the past and you need to go back on your meds. Then say you are having a manic episode. Do your research on the symptoms. Get and pay for your RX once you are seen by the doc, and provide this "proof" to your lawyer. Tell your lawyer you were off you meds and didn't know what you were doing or why. Don't say anything about past crimes of stealing. This has worked for me. I got caught stealing at a Northwest grocery store that recently changed their name.(ahem word is opposite of bottom)..and they always press charges against shoplifters. This means that they WANT to SEEE YOU WITH A CRIMINAL RECORD. They don't care if you stole a small amount, or if you were stealing to feed your small babies at home. Do not deal with them. You will have to pay the fine for the store, and if your lawyer is GOOD, they will tell you to NOT make payments of the restitutuion. You will unfortunatly have to come up with a huge chunk of change to make the payment in complete...and your lawyer should get a reciept from them "acknowledging that you have made restitution in FULL" and have them sign a "reciept". Have your lawyer use this to present to the judge to prove that you (the defendant) have made good with the store and they have acknowldeged that you have paid them in full. If you are lucky and you are smart to listen to my advice, the judge will show some sort of sympathy towards your situation and will scold you, tell you don't steal again, but all in all, when this is done, YOU WILL NOT HAVE A RECORD. Your case should be dismissed. Remember,...the most stolen items of food is cheese and expensive cuts of meats. I stole the meats and medicine, but they didn't see the meds. Also....Keep in mind that when I was in the holding room downstairs in the store, I was able to see where all the security cameras were and They have a lot of hidden ones that are not obvious. That is how I got caught. They had a camera in the deli area where you go to order meats, and...even though they ddnt see me conceal it, I was walking out the store "too fast" and they followed me due to that. The LP was a man, plain clothes, with a small basket in his hands, a few items in it, he had a wedding ring on, and was talking on a cell phone. That,theives and kleptos, is how LP people look like now. And yes....the cameras work, they are real time, and remember,If you think they are following you, THEY ARE!!!!!!
May I add...Hey it's Mike again.My previous story should be above this one and it's true. I should of mentioned that I was caught shoplifting before, and it is on my permanant record. That is why I got a lawyer the second time around. I didn't want this second time to be on my record again. I'm a past klepto. I'd rather eat dirt than steal food. I'd rather be naked than steal clothes. Learned my lesson.
Im PoP***r i steal tons of stuff and thats how fit in with the cool kids! :)
i have shoplifted and got caught! so ashamed and honestly dont no what came over me, now i am constantly worrying about applying for jobs and everything.so everyone who is on their high horse saying its pathetic sometimes people honestly dont no what came over them so dont judge a book by its cover!and to everyone whos saying they enjoy it and do it all the time, if you cant afford it there n then then dont look at it, seriously its not fun, its wrong, and i personally am completely ashamed and would take it back within seconds if i could! i personally think teenagers make mistakes, everyone makes mistakes however its not a mistake if you do it more than once and theres no excuse if u keep doing it and you will regret it!
I just talked to a mate who confessed to shoplifting, guess what? He's no longer a mate now.i hope all you shoplifters die a horrible painful death, you have no idea how much effort or money it costs to manufacture, store, sell and account for the items you so gleefully steal. I do not own a business but it absolutely disgusts me to see scum walking about with stolen goods, I'd love to bashed your face in. Bastards
When I was about 13 years old my friend and I decided to shoplift. We shoved two shirts, a bra, and something else (I can't remember)into our purses and walked around the store for a little so we didn't look too suS***ious.. As we were walking out the doors with her dad, these two security guards came out running after us saying "HEY! WE WANT OUR MERCHANDISE BACK!" We got caught and I just couldn't believe what was happening. They took us into their office, called the police, and we were arrested. We had 30 hours of community service and had to write an apology letter to the store. My mom never punished me for it, she just asked me why I felt the need to steal. I had no reason.. just the rush I guess. Overall, the real punishment that I have to live with for the rest of my life is the regret and guilt I feel EVERY DAY. If you steal, or someday might steal- please, remember this and think of the consequences. Think about how it will not only affect you, but your future too. Thank you for taking the time to read this. This is the first time I've told anybody about my mistake
i got caught shoplifting some $20 shoes im a minor , the thing is i didnt walk out the door i was stopped before the door and i was given court what should i do or what are my rights?
Bleh. I hate confronting and talking to people I don't know, so I just leave money by the cash register and walk out with the things. I accidentally send off the alarms and the security guards came. Man, did I feel stupid. The guards just told me to actually buy the things.
yesterday i got cought with shoplifting for the first time ever and that.they called the police and now i have to go for the fingerprints b4 i go to the court. does anybody knows what they do and how much fine they put on u .
okay, well one time I was at a mall and I had spent $350 on clothes, bras, food, etc. I wanted to buy a new pair of lululemon pants which are $110, so i went there and got the pants got in line and went to pay for it... but i looked in my wallet and I had only $50 left... not nearly enough for the pants. I wanted them so badly that i took them back to the rack and shoved 5 pairs of the pants into my backpack. I ran out. But i cut the barcode off so the beepers never went off. It was the RUSH OF MY LIFE! I had left the store with $600 of lululemon clothing in total (including tax)! I left the mall immediately and to this day (im 36) I never went back to that mall.
I stole a Cadillac Escalade last year...what a rush! I also take clothes from the mall when I need them, and took a pomeranian puppy from a pet store. I got my bf a nice ring for Christmas (about $2,000) - he luvs it! Oh, and I stole a bible the day after Christmas, cause I need to read it and stop stealing.So, umm...don't steal. It's wrong.
my friend and i would steal everything you could think of. headphones, clothes, purses, hats, jewelry, hair dye, and she only got caught once. i would have gotten caught too but i noticed as i was walking around, there was a suS***ious woman who was always behind me, so i walked out of the store as quick yet calm as i could. my friend was in there for hours as im waiting and she comes out and said that same woman caught her. i only wish she had been more careful (my friend) and left the store when i did, but she got greedy. if you EVER NOTICE someone, wether a shopper or worker, following you, or just seeing them multiple times, LEAVE! Get out as fast as you can, and leave. That was the only time she had been caught, and I hope it is her last. ALSO NEVER SHOPLIFT FROM THE SAME STORE TWICE IN A WEEK/MONTH. The reason they suspected us is because we shopllifted there the week before, as the LP told my friend. I guess that is why the woman was following me even though she was not around when i was stealing...
sometime in you life u have stolen. i've stolen before u guys probably have stolen before u say u never have bcuz u havent remembered or u just dont want 2 admit it. i stole once bcuz i didnt have enough money 2 buy both shirts. so i bought the more expensive 1, and when i was walking out i grabbed the other 1. it was wrong, but when u need 2 buy food for your family (i was at the mall and my mom told me 2 get food for dinner with my own money) and all your shirts r wrecked and you need some 2 last the rest of the week and u can buy more during the weekend with your moms money, u gotta steal. U all have stolen.... TRUST ME!!!!!!!!! DONT LIE, BE HONEST AND ADMIT WHEN U HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG...
ok so when i went back to the mall, i paid for the extra shirt, bcuz i felt really bad. but i still stole and it was wrong and i still feel terrible about it
I have stolen a girl from a guy. We are married now.
all the time shirts, ties, jewelry, vests, bracelettes, watches, wallets, shoes, blazers, underwear, movies, CDs, cameras, scarfs, around $3500 a year anything fancy anything i like never get caught because my daddy's a little wealthier than most (not bragging i swear) so im the town goody two shoes (wink wink)i do pay for most things just when im alone at the mall or with friends which is like once every month but weekly trips to the store or shopping for clothes I pay for EVERYTHING...just my way of balancing out the universe...

I shoplift all of the time. I have a system. I keep a nail kit in my purse to help remove tags, i go into the dressing rooms, put on some stuff, throw some stuff in my bag, etc. I just did a big ticket item this week (A pair of Nike gym shoes -worth $80)- literally put the shoes on my feet and walked out in them.I find it exhilarating. I'll buy a small item (a shirt from the sale rack, etc) just to cover for myself, then take it back for cash the next day. I'll also steal some clothes and take them to a resale shop for cash.I don't think I'll ever quit unless I get caught.
Ya'll know how old I am? 18. That's right, most of you's are probably old enough to be a mom, I myself, am way too young. Have you ever watched "Lockedup"? "Beyond Scared Straight" Those people land up on there because they're doing some of what you're doing.
My friend was. She didn't have a bag, so she put the stuff in my bag aswell as making me put it in. We were both caught and it was the scariest experience of my life! I was only in my early teens when it happened and my parents had to come and pick me up from the police station, which was also the most embarrassing thing in my life, too.
When I was a kid, I did price-tag switching a few times. Long before bar codes, when every item in a department store had a price sticker on it. Putting a $4 or $5 price tag on an item worth $100, sort of thing. Did it at Sears and at Woolco. The cashiers really should have noticed but never did. That was 40 years ago. Never really needed the stuff, just had a crappy childhood and that was my way of rebelling, I guess. Never got caught but if I had, I would have certainly deserved it. About 10 yrs later, I actually wrote anonymous letters to both stores' head offices, explained what I had done, and enclosed money orders for the difference between the proper price and what I had paid. Such a relief !
I shoplifted a few days ago and it was exciting. I want to do it more cus i like it.
I stole for the first time today. From a CVS pharmacy. I stole blush, lipgloss, expensive nail polish. Not much huh? It was probably $30 worth of stuff. It felt GREAT and I'm good at it. I am not ashamed. I am Not guilty. Never stopping until I get caught. Why pay for something when you can have it for free? I'm moving on to bigger ticket items soon. I'm 14 and I regret NOTHING,
Just got caught a 7/11 idk wat to o, my friends dad saw me help plz?
I steal all the time. Actually I did just yesterday, and Im actually REALLY good at it. It total of every thing I've ever stolen probably adds up to hundreds of dollars and I've only been doin this for about 6 mths. Honestly , i think im addicted. And Im not stopping until im 18. What can i say? I love stealing,and since my mum will never get any of the clothes I ask her for, why not get them myself. And I DO have a heart and a conscience, but tbh I never feel bad about it, exept for. Steal from stitches; just becasue the ppl r so nice. I don't think ill ever get caught.. It can happen, i know, but the securtiy system at my mall near me SUCKS. Every store is considered easy. And barely any of the sensors work.I jst hate keeping a huge secret from my mom. Btw Im 13.
I shoplift just as of recently at grocery stores and wal-Mart. I'm bulimic so I steal food and laxatives. I feel horribly ashamed and I don't know how to stop, but I just can't pay for all the binge food. I never steal for clothing/makeup/ digital devices or anything like that though. Like that will matter when the police stop me.
i jst stole a 1 nail polish n i am scared tht they will call the police!! i am 14
When I was in grade 3, I was in one of those Macs convenience stores. I saw this broken conch shell keychain thing and held it in my hands while my mom was at the cashier. I didn't realize I took the keychain with me back home however. Not sure if it's really shoplifting, since it wasn't actually for sale, it was just there in a dusty little corner LOL
I just got caught today takin a lighter and my friend took a pair of sunglasses holy hell we we're scared sh*tless and I was at the police station all day and thank god I don't have to go to court they just made me give it back and my mom had to pick me up from there it was so humiliating and right in the middle of town while I was walkin home from school and about 20 buses full of all the kids at school I know were on them I'm in tenth grade been stealing since 1st grade and it's my first time bein caught and I always thought I was one of the best but that all Changed TODAY, as I will never again be caught again cause I will never do it again
Gina, you are exactly why I have little respect for loss prevention. Why would you spend your time on a blog telling people you are going to catch them? Do you think police officers spend their time on blogs telling criminals that he or she is gonna catch them? No. You work in a highly stressful environment that pays little to nothing. The average loss prevention associate makes about $23,000 a year. Managers don't make too much more. I made that when I was 19 being a manager at a fast-food establishment. Your position has a high turnover rate as well. Actually, one of the highest in all of the industries. Believe it or not Walmart executives think little to nothing about loss prevention associates. Meaning that they will always get someone to do it because people love the power trip. You should read the article leaked about this. Also I have seen LP get hurt during a stop. Even shot. So I assume you value little of your life. Please get off your power trip. I was writing a news article about random people that make a living stealing from Walmart. Some people have furnished their homes from Walmart. One guys stole $28,000 in 4 months. And he did not enter the store everyday. Some people are just really good. Especially if they know who is LP and their schedule. LOL.
Have I ever shoplifted? Only about a million times or so. I love it. I absolutely love the rush, the revenge, and the reward(the triple R's). The only thing that I feel guilty about is that most working-class people haven't snatched as much stuff as me:-(. I've only been caught twice! Twice out of hundreds, possibly thousands of times. I was first first caught at the age of 13, when I attempted to lick close to 400$ worth of sweet games, CDs, and porn from this store in the mall. I had this trick where I would toss in all the goodies into a bag and haphazardly throw it over the exit alarms, where my bros would be ready to catch the porn ugh I mean games, and stuff. Well, I was spotted, told to come with this LP, proceeded to walk casually out the store, then I booked it, but was caught by Dirk Nowinski's gigantic twin brother LOL! I was moved to the main security room, cuffed, but luckily I wasn't searched. I had a few stolen items from 3 more stores that I had hit up before the grand heist! And I got to keep them when I was released with a warning! I came back a few days later to steal some more cool stuff from the mall. LOL!
The 2nd time I was caught was a few months ago. I was at a grocery store where I would frequent about two times a week. I would steal between 15$ to 60$ worth of food, OTC meds, and other random stuff. I was getting way to C***y. I would even drink beers while I would stuff my pants and coat full of items. Then, one day, I was getting ready for business as usual when I noticed what was either an LP detective, or a really really strange shopper with many keys. It didn't phase me. Big mistake. I was stopped just as I walked out the door by the LP and a fat dude employee. I ignored him as he told me to come with him, telling him that I had no idea what he was talking about. He grabbed my shirt and I quickly got him off of me. Then before I could react, he shoved me through the front door, then through the LP office. The cops came, made me sign papers, gave me a court date, went, did an 8 hour Stoplift program, and now I can't get into trouble for 6 months in order to have the charge dropped.
I've been shoplifting since mid of 2010. I steal designer clothes, anything expensive in particular from big departmental stores. Sometimes I only manage to steal high end designer clothes in their own store when they are very busy, like boxing day. Speaking of which during boxing day last year I stole more than $20,000 worth of designer clothes, suits in particular because they are expensive and one of them cost $2,600 even after a 50% discount. I started small, the first time I lifted on go with $400-600 worth of clothing, I can still remember which one they were, it was a shirt, a pair of jeans and a sweater. Soon after that I started lifting every weekend, sometimes 3 times a week during friday to sunday, because they are the busiest periods. I was caught once, unfortunately with merchandise valued over $3,000. It was not good, I had to go to court but I was no convicted. I was caught when stealing their ties. Now I learned from the lesson of my life, never be ever too greedy and never steal the smallest things where people can see. I was caught by the LP when i tried to hide the ties under some clothes i was carrying and i wanted to bring those clothes to the changing room where i can use my tools to detach the security tags. So now I no longer dare to steal ties or belts because it is too risky and they are always watching. I steal clothes now, its much easier to do in the changing room. And I did went back to the store during boxing day for my big haul revenge. All I know is, be patient, observent and act like you're having a good time. Never stash clothes in public, only in changing room. Sometimes i can easily spot lp's, they are not that difficult to recognise. Always spot people shopping alone, they are the key people to either being LP, loners, or shoplifters themselves, and always check whether they wear earpiece or when they are constantly on the phone but with no sense of direction in the store. That is how i spot them. So far, I only steal to wear them, I used to steal some designer jeans to sell them off eBay, then I felt really bad, stealing to pay up for a living is not good. But steal for oneself or to donate for charity, I felt much better. I think I have stole more than $80,000-100,000 worth of designer merchandise within mid of 2010 till now and still going. But my guts is not as big as my past when I wasn't caught. Also I sort of cooled down now, I only steal when I think i want a particular item and I only do it twice a month or less. I felt really bad, but I had been paying way too much to this government of this country, I hate it, high tax, high cost of living. It pisses me off....
for the person who steals from dollar tree, ARE U FRIGGIN KIDDING ME? i work for dollar tree and they barely give their employees aenough hours, and we all bust our asses off working at that place, every item you steal takes away from hard working employees who need the hours so they can pay to get by. Its not funny at all,because of stuff like that i am not getting enough hours at work.
I boosted over one million dollars in clothes in three years and fenced them for 25% at best, free food for three years, and free pharmacy items for the three years. I also spent one year of the three on Rikers Island as a result, a combination of small bids to equal between 9 and 11 months (a city bullet bid is 8 months with good time). So, it boils down to your view on life as well as economics. I would spend a minimum of a third of my life in jail to make great money. I made between $80 and $800 on any given day with only 2 hours work. Sometimes 7 days a week. I started committing higher level boosts and risked 2-4 in state prison. I finally stopped when I beat the last case because the $1800 in leather was on sale for 60% off I was given 45 days for petit larceny. Lucky. No more for me.
i took a ring from a shop and it was only a couple of quid but i feel like the police will be knocking on my door anyday and coming to ge me i dont know why i took it i just wanted to be likethe other girls and have pretty things i can take it back because i will get arrested and i feel like i should throw it away get rid of the guilt what you think?
I'll take the ring...want my P.O.Box? If you are not taking from mom & pop stores and not doing burglaries from people, bad karma is doubtfully coming your way. For one, the USA was founded by pirates, scaliwags, and adventurers (as per History channel documentary Feb 2012). Larger stores are insured and also create jobs for asset protection. It is my personal belief that this form of boosting is healthy. You do the crime, you do the time...that's for sure. But it's capitalism at it's best. I am no fool and have a graduate degree. I challenge anyone to debate the morality of what I am saying. The large stores have 'slaves' working for them; both the socio-economic underprivileged locally and the overseas slaves (look at the Gap). Then, they make millions on millions marking up cheap product to us. I WANT to rob them...it's practically my patriotic duty. Screw taxation, since we get no real benefits from it in the US. Screw corporate icons and billionaires. I deserve a piece of their money and I will get it. I'm a bit of an outlaw but in some ways I am conservative- rapists and murderers should be killed, for example. Domestic violence should result in a hand being chopped off. But when it comes to profit...piracy can be noble when the weak, poor, or unfortunate are not being prayed upon. Steal from the rich and give to the poor my dear.
I shoplifted only once in my lifetime and got caught. I was a junior in college at the time and until this day question why I did it. I later realized the reasons that may have led me to do this but I will keep that to myself and will just say that I have felt remorseful ever since. Although this behavior does not reflect my ethical principles, I make myself completely responsible for my actions and will never make this mistake again. In addition, I believe this experience has helped me grow not only personally but academically for various reasons. For one, I don't immediately judge others for whatever mistakes people decide to make. I have learned that eventually we all mistakes in different degrees but what's important is the person one is not who one was. I have also expanded my knowledge on criminal law as well as immigration law. As a result, it has serve as a motivation to educate others to not make the same mistakes that may turn into a long nightmare. Furthermore, this experience incenttivized me to study law and society in order to help those who are unfortunately in the same situation and don't have access to professional advice. Finally, I have recently graduated from UCD with a 3.7 with a double major in sociology and philosophy and I am currently studying for the LSAT and will soon be applying for law schools. The intention of this long sermon is to show that one can turn his/her life around, all is takes is effort and motivation. I also want to try to ingrain in people that our past is insignificant and that should should look forward and focus on our present. Take it from me. :)
I'm in my mid-teens, and just started shoplifting about a month ago. I ended up getting caught yesterday. I started because my best friend got an eyeshadow or something, and I saw how easy it was for her. So I wanted to try it at my local Walmart. Anyways, when ever you hear that you will eventually get caught, IT'S TRUE. I have learned so much about myself and stealing these last 24 hours, believe it or not. Lol. So I have only stolen cosmetics. First shoplifting experience, I got a blush, worth around $6. I had doubled up on underwear and stuck it in the second pair. Walked out of the store like it was nothing, no one was suS***ious or anything. Second time, a few weeks later I grabbed a really nice concealer. Had to unpackage it though. Got away with that, no big deal.I stupidly went again the day after that, got a lipstick, stuck it in my pants, and then got a felt-tip eyeliner that I had to put in my pants too. So I walked out like it was nothing. and didn't get caught. But I greedily decided to go BACK in for another round of free makeup. So so so so stupid.4th and final time, I went in as usual. Makeup aisle. Saw a suS***ious looking lonesome man in a black shirt wandering around, but didn't think much of him. (he was the LP guy). Grabbed a nail polish, stuck it in my pants. I proceeded to get an eyeliner (which I had to unpackage), stuck that in easily. And thirdly got a blush that I had been wanting. Got that too. as me and my friend were walking out the door, two loss prevention guys ran up to us (all giddy, since they caught us. Those guys were high on power. must have been picked on in school) and said, "Girls, come with us into our office. You have items that you didn't pay for." so I was thinking, awww hell. That's where my greed, C***iness, and stupidity got me. Lol. Well we sat in their office and I denied, denied, denied. Although the guys were confident that I had stolen. So they said they were going to call the police to search me. So I was like lol, okay. Like the police are going to fondle my crotch. That's molestation. well, news to me, but it's NOT. :OThe cops came and whatever, and one cop was super nice, and the other one was probably about 50, and mean as hell. Total dick. well he interrogated my friend and told her to remove the items she had stolen. So she was all shaken up and took out the nail polish and lipstick she took. I also overheard the loss prevention guy speaking with the cop, and said that he had ONLY seen me take the $3 eyeliner. I was silently cheering.Next he asked to privately speak with me. So I was like sure, ok. and here is the in-depth conversation we had.Him "Alright, I am going to explain to you what is going to happen. You can either remove the item you took now, or our female officer can search you. Bra, underwear, everywhere."Me: "So you're telling me, it is legal for her reach into my pants and touch my crotch..? Isn't that molestation?"Him (angry now) : YES, YES IT IS. You have no power in this situation. If you continue to resist like this, we can go sit in my squad car and discuss how little control you have over ANYTHING."and I was like whoa wtf okay crazy. And I didn't want her to find my other items, so I just took out the eyeliner. Figured it would be easier. So then the ass cop left and then we were stuck in the office with the 2 dorky LP guys, and the nice cop. The nice one wrote down our court date and got us some papers and off we went! I have court in a month for it, it will probably screw up my record. :\ Lesson learned, DON'T STEAL. you WILL get caught no matter how invincible you think you are. And let me just say, it really sucks to disappoint the people who love you. Up until then I had been a straight A, goodie two shoes kid. I don't really know what happened.I have been battling depression for an extremely long time and getting caught made it SO MUCH WORSE. I tried to pull the old hang yourself on a door knob, that didn't work. I went unconscious for about 10 seconds and realized that I couldn't do it. I just kept thinking of how much I would hurt my parents and brothers if I did. A very traumatic experience to say the least.My best friend of 8 years was the one who was with me at Walmart, and we are no longer allowed to see, text, call, or facebook message each other. and on top of it all I am probably going to have a mark on my record from this experience. :\ all over my stupidity, some power hungry, nerdy LP guys, and makeup. not worth it at all. Take my word for it, don't steal guys.
Guys? 2day was my first time shoplifting at Walmart. I stole about $110 worth of things like makeup and that. They called the cops and now i hvae to go to court. I was wondering if I'm going to have the criminal record for the rest of my life?? or just a couple of months?? what exactly do they do @ the court? /do u have tou pay a fine or anythin?? I'm 21 so can someone plz answer my questions. I would really appreciate that. I'm stressed out. Plus im a college student, I wonder if the next time when i apply for financial aid, would they give it to me or not? please some one answer thank you so much!
I shopped lifted a week ago and got caught stealing 2 bottles of wine and that was it. I have not money coming in. What should I do. Will this go on my record... This was my first time doing this. I am not looking to do this again never ever.
I have and got caught and i felt so bad that i actualy puked in the store, luckily i didnt have to go to court because of how young i was.. but i didnt get off scott free, i had to go to a counceler for 3 weeks write an essay, story, appology letter, and i was banned from the store for a year. i learned my lesson for sure
One common day I bought all my groceries, paid for them, but as an extra free item for being such a good customer I put a 250 bucks watch on, looked glimpsy and shiny in my ankle, after all it was a petty store and even when I did a grocery shopping in there every 2 weeks I got Big Brother observing me as if I was a haggard biker or something, all the times I passed by, as if they were I dunno...Fresh Market or a decent recurrence, later that year...what a surprise!!!...I was customer 1 million!!! got extra canned food, crab, chocolates and almonds for free!!! Also earphones and AA batteries...LUCKY EH? I know karma whip you suddenly as time goes but well that stored deserve it anyway.
I shoplifted a small packet of those frosties sweets when I was 8 from sainsburys. I just put it in my pocket.
I shoplifted three days ago. I don't really like to do it, but at least I got the things I wanted. Also, to judgey people who say they would never shoplift, it's probably because you're scared of getting caught. If you're sneaky enough, not even a camera can catch you.
'can a shoplifter get caught days after the shoplifting occurred\x3f assuming the store has you on camera.'
'I am a prosessional shoplifter. I came across this site while googling types security tags. I also recently got out of prison for bank robbery. So my answer is YES.

'This year for Black Friday I was stupid enough to go in Hollister and get caught. I was sent to security and they were nice enough to let me go with a warning and banned me from the mall for a year. A fellow shop lifter told me that you never go on the week of thanksgiving or christmas because thats when the real police are out there. Wasnt my first rodeo with Hollister and it wont be my last. I usually only steal for my kids because im out of work and pregnant. I know its not a good thing to do and im not proud of it, but at least if I am going to risk myself, Ill do it big.'
'I\x27m 14 years old and ive stolen about 5000 \x24 worth of things in the past 7 months, it varies from makeup to clothes to jewelry to food. I have self respect and I have morals. Ive done terrible things in my short time of living although im not ashamed of what ive stolen, my mom is on foodstamps, shes a single mother with me and my two younger sisters. Times are hard and I feel like I should be able to get what I want and need before i die, I know my karmas going to be a B\x2a\x2a\x2a and ill regret this in the future, im defiantly not encouraging stealing but who can blame me\x3f Prices are so outrageous now a days my mom can barely afford our simple apartment rather food then clothes. Without me stealing food and clothes id be wearing the same exact clothes everyday and starving half my days without any food. Dont judge people who steal, you have no idea of their situation, thats all have to say.'
'I did once, it was a stress ball from wal-mart although I was only twelve and didnt realize I had put it in my pocket until we got halfway home. We turned around and I just placed it back on a shelf and left...'
'I steal all the time and I can\x27t stop . When ever I want something I take it . My parents gave me and my brother 100 dollars each and dropped us off At the mall . I went inside a teen clothing store and I looked around and I noticed the cameras were fake as hell . So I took like over 500\x24 worth of stuff from there . I\x27m a pro and I don\x27t think I can stop . Every time I go in a grocery store I take like 5 packs of candy . And the thing is I have the money I just don\x27t want to pay for it'
'My friend and I went to the mall today and while we were at one of the big main stores she told me her friend would put clothes under hers and walk out the store. We did that only because she told me to. I stole 2 tank tops one from Sears and one from Maceys. I feel really bad about it and am thinking of giving her the tanks. I am only 12 years old while she is 15.'
