xcore89 posted a topic in Retail loss Prevention/Other shoplifting allegations.I am a total idiot. Today I decided to steal a fragrance from my local Debenhams store. I took it to the toilet of the store, ripped off the barcode and then flushed it down the toilet. I then walked out of the store, however I was stopped on the street by Debenhams security guards. I'm only 17 and this shocked me. I didn't know what the hell was going through my head. I could've paid for it myself but I felt getting it for free was more cooler. I was an idiot I suppose. the police officer came. He said because I have no prior history on the database, I will only be given a fine which will not be recorded on any database and will not destroy my future career options. He said this fine was more like a speeding ticket. The offence code was DA12. paid of the fine already of £80, however when I got home I researched this and discovered that offence DA12 is recordable and I will now have a criminal record? the value of the item was £45. I was given an information sheet about RLP taking civil recovery. How much would this roughly be? I do not want to fight as I want to pay this off immediately and try to get rid of any offences being recorded.
