Really depends if they feel they have a solid case. If I were arrested, I'd say nothing (refuse an interview and try my luck in court).

In the meantime give that area a wide berth for a few months, and change clothing style, etc. Oh yeah, never park close to a store!

They will probably show up at your door. If you're not there, then they probably won't actively pursue you, but they'll leave the warrant for your arrest in place. The next time you get pulled over for speeding, or something like that, they'll search their database for any warrants, and arrest you on the spot if they find one.

If this actually happened, then do not go home for a day or two. Go drive to a park, walk around a bit, and sleep in your car (if you have one). Make sure that your license plate is facing away from the street. From then on, try your hardest not to run into the police. Obey all traffic laws and regulations, so that you don't get pulled over and arrested.

Also, take all of this with a grain of salt, because policies will vary by country/region/police department. Things may be different where you live.

The cops might not even take the case... I wouldn’t be too worried. It’s happened to me too.

Be mindful of how much you're lifting in dollar amounts at one time because if the total value of said items is low enough they can't make a reasonable case and they can't call the cops,I try to keep my lifts no higher than $50 in value so if I was to get caught they'd have no choice but to let me go because the police aren't gonna bother coming out for a small theft like that

Depends on the dollar amount of the stolen items I think that if the total value of the stolen items if it values $500+ they can get you on a felony theft charge but $50-$100 is only considered class b misdemeanor depinding on the state
