Shoplifted from Waitrose, wasn't caught now feeling down

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have ptsd and severe anxiety

 

1 week ago I impulsively stole about £50 of groceries from Waitrose self checkout

. I scanned some items but just left some in the trolley.

I have no idea why I did this but I could feel an overwhelming panic building and just did it. No excuses

 

. I have never ever committed any crime before and NEVER will again

 

. I'm so terrified of what might happen

. It is the unknowns.

 

I feel so ashamed and guilty and sick with terror and anxiety that police will track me down

 

. I paid with card, drove to the shop so they could easily find me if they check through the cctv at any point.

 

Can anyone please tell me (good or bad), what could likely happen and if it does happen what punishment I will face please?

 

This happened 1 week ago and I can't sleep, eat or function for fear of what might happen and shame at what i have done.

 

Thank you in advance.

They wont do anything i suspect

You might get scary letters from rlp or dwf but you ignore those.

 

They wont bother with scanning cctv costs too much in man hours

 

Go see your doctor..might be best idea.

Thank you. Yes, i have a psychiatric nurse appointment booked. It feels like my life has fallen apart.

 

I'm worried for some reason they will check through the cctv and see me stealing. Would they then call the police who could find me and come to my door? 

 

I can't explain how much I regret what I did and I am so ashamed. I hate myself and don't know how to move forward for fear of waiting for that knock at the door.

Thank you.

Do you mean that even if they view the cctv they won't get the police to find me?

I would have assumed that would happen.

 

Also, it has been 1 week, I suppose the longer that goes by the less likely it is to happen.

Thank you for replying.

 

I know what I did was so wrong, I have no excuses.

I have to sort out my life and mental health and I am doing that now.

police wouldn't be involved in run of the mill shop lifting.

even IF the shop spotted it.

they are only interested in serial lifters and they know who they are anyway.

 

please stop fretting.

no-one is going to waste man hours looking thru CCTV to find who did what and when.

that cost more money that what was stolen.

 

doubt you will hear anything from anyone. ever

do you realise how much stuff gets nicked thaks to self check outs?

what is likely to happen if anything at all is next time you are identified at that store is they will keep an eye on you to see if you try such a thig again and if they suspect you are will then stop you and ask to see what you have purchased.

This event is now done and dusted so as you have already contact with mental health services talk the matter over with them. It is common for people to do things that risk getting caught as they belive they need to be punished, not for teh shoplifting per se but for being them and thus worthless etc.

try and get someone to talk through your self esteem problems, you dont need punishing for being ill
