They need PROOF. they have to see you conceal it and make sure you dont chicken out and ditch the item. Opening something isn't enough. unless you stole a tv or a computer they wont bother investigating.

Have a receipt on hand from a previous purchase, then they'll have no reason to call you back or suspect you. Asking for receipts at the exit is customary at Walmart; just because they ask for your receipt doesn't necessarily mean they suspect you of shoplifting.

running from them is automatic sign your a shoplifter, dont expect to go back anytime soon, maybe give it a few months.

Yeah just if you go back to that Walmart anytime soon expect to be watched more closely,if possible avoid it for awhile they'll forget about you then.

Run this down real quick; you were asked for a receipt, refused, and told to come back by the receipt checker, then ran? You have every right to refuse a receipt but they will only watch you closer the next time. Not to be rude, but that was an overreaction, if I interpreted that correctly. If they ask you to come back after refusing keep walking. There's nothing they can do about it.

i wouldve said i losted in the store, running is a sure sign of someone stealing, and worst you also dropped your goods, if i was running i would taken the stuff with me.

When fear sets in people over react. one time the alarm went off so i sprayed a manager and the door greeter in the face with pepper spray and bolted. I didn't conceal on cam either, but looking back on it now, that was stupid. I should've kept walking. the manager ran at me and got in front of me and asked what i had in my bag, thats when i hit them with the spray.
