If I understand you correctly, you took an item from the shelf and claimed it was yours already and wanted to return it. Then LP took your receipt and the item and left with it.

If that’s the case, the LP was going to go back over the video of when you entered the store to see if you entered with it. Since you did not, he will follow you on video and see you were trying to do a fraudulent return.

At this point he will be able to look up the transaction in the POS system and see how you paid. If you paid with a credit/debit card he will now have your name and photo from the surveillance cameras.

It is unlikely that he would involve the police (although he could). Most likely he will just write up a report in the computer system and send a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) for you to other Walmart’s in the area. They may contact other local stores, but that’s not really very common.

Honestly, you should probably avoid any Wal-Mart in the area for a few weeks, but after that you should be fine at any other Wal-Mart as long as you don’t do anything to draw unwanted attention to yourself from the LP.

I wouldn’t go back to the Walmart where this incident took place though for at least 3-6 months at the soonest.

If you don’t get a call or visit from the police in the next few days, I wouldn’t be worried, nothing will come of it.
