in Tesco the other day

 

for some stupid reason I decided to take goods from tesco and place them in a hessian bag I was carrying with me,

 

I admit it was alot of stuff... mostly products - £160 worth,

 

I am utterly mortified and have never done anything like this before,

 

I paid for the things I had in my basket then as I was going down the esculater (hadn't actually left the main doors)

a security guard approached me and escorted me to an interview room.

 

He made me take everything I took out the bag and lay it on the table.

 

The police were called and questioned me to which I admitted my mistake and told them my financial situation after recently losing my job :(

 

She also asked how much money I had on me.... why was this?

 

She then read me my rights and charged me with shoplifting, I was then escorted off the premesis.

 

I am so sick with worry about what is going to happen

 

I am at University and as my term address is not my permanent address the police said if the fiscal decides a court appearence is necissary the letter will go to my home address..

. WHERE MY PARENTS LIVE!... they will literally kill me and my mum is the type to open my letters....

 

Please help, is there anything I can do.

 

Should i write a formal letter of appology to tesco or write to the fiscals ofice??

 

Thanks

 

Could you possibly give me an update to what happened to you ?

The reason I ask is that I have just done the same thing, first time ever shoplifting, I don't know why other that I've recently had mental health issues and am seeing a psychiatrist and started on medication just over a month ago.

I was not taken to the police station but I assume everything was filmed in the shop interview room. The CD was put in an envelope with statements and I was told it would go to the PF to decide what to do.

I am guilty, there are no two ways about that, I am ashamed and I will know for the rest of my life that I am a thief.

I will now lose my job - I am currently on sick leave, but having worked there for 28 years would have liked to have stayed until I retired,as I will not be able to pay my mortgage otherwise and will lose my home.

As part of helping my mental health issues, my brother had arranged for me to visit him in Australia in May, now I won't be able to get in.

I feel I have ruined my life.

Hi,

 

A few questions -

 

1. What mental health condition(s) have you been diagnosed with?

2. What medication have you been prescribed?

3. Were the police called?

4. If the police were called, we they made aware of your current state of health and prescription?

 

I note you were told the matter is being referred to the Procurator Fiscal. Who told you that?

 

I have you the above questions with good reason. Hopefully, your answers may enable us to help advise you better.

Hi SillyMimi and welcome to CAG.

 

I have moved your thread from the end of the other one to here as you will get more help. Just continue posting as if nothing was done.

 

Once you answer the questions from OB then more help can be given

 

just for clarity, this is the thread from which the above quote is from:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?382586-First-ever-Shoplifting-offence!-Help!!&p=4143716&viewfull=1#post4143716

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor
