"No, he didn’t give me anything to sign, he didn’t even ask for my name or address, he just told me to go home..."
Then draw a line, and call it a learning experience.
And perhaps don't go back there for a little while - maybe long enough that he starts to forget your face
"Out of sight - out of mind" and all that
Hello and welcome to CAG.
From what you say, that's the end of it. Did the security guard give you anything in writing?
If so, you've been lucky but you need to address why you're doing this. It might be worth having a chat with your GP if you have underlying mental issues that are causing the problem.
The main thing is to take the chance you've been given and to stop shoplifting.
Yesterday I was caught shoplifting by a store detective, even though he said I could leave if I hand over the goods I offered to pay for them and he agreed. Afterwards he escorted me out I asked him if I was banned and he said normally yes, but because I paid for the items he agreed not to ban me and gave me one more chance but he took my photo and said if I was caught shoplifting there again, he would call the police.
Is that the end of it? If I go back there again they can’t claim I’m trespassing?

I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
I did and they took me upstairs.
I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
The cost of the items was about £40.
I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
I’m so stressed,
can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
