Got caught shoplifting at winners, they took the stuff back which was under 30$, took my picture and a picture of my drivers license and told me i was lucky they werent charging me with theft. They banned me for 5 years. I guess my questions are :can they still charge me even though they got everything back and told me i would not get charged?I know ill have to pay some sort of fine for them taking extra time to catch me, how much will it be for?Im really worried that they'll change their minds and decide to charge me and theyll come looking for me at my house.
