  • Shoplifting

    a few days ago my friends and I were in a clothes shop (not saying which one but a major retailer), and I tried on a necklace in front of the mirrors they have in the accessories section.Then I picked out an outfit, tried it out in the fitting rooms, bought the outfit and left. The beeper didn't go off but I accidentally left my original necklace there and was still wearing the necklace from the store. the necklace was 3-4 I think. This was a genuine mistake and I'mworried they will be able to look at the cctv footage, see me trying on the necklace and track my card down from the purchase I made. When I returned, I saw the original necklace I left there was gone, presumably taken by a store employee and I think they probably realised their necklace had been taken. I panicked and just left. What is going to happen to me? will the police getinvolved? will i get a fine? I threw the necklace away but should I have just returned it?

    if there is no evidence of me leaving the store with their goods can they technically do anything?

    im not under 18 btw

    please help

    thank you

      I agree. I also think the OP is overthinking how her original necklace came not to be there.
