Oops meant before the gate if it beeps. Then is it a crime ?

yes. most store policies state that once you pass the security gate its game on. so in the gate as it beeps. its a crime and theyll get you. id keep walking. If a real lp guy comes after you then that means he observed you conceal, and hes not stopping you because of the alarm.

What about the cash registers? I read somewhere that the cash registers are considered the “point of sale” so if you pass it it means you’ve stolen something.

If that’s not the case you’re technically not stealing if you go to the in-store McDonalds with merchandise in your bag, is it?

You could get arrested but I can’t think of a single store whose policy would allow it. And it would be really easy to fight in court.
