Hardly matters. Not a big deal. Everyone makes too big a deal. I got caught at a major national retailer with $800 in merch, basically a whole cart load. Spent 4 hours in a holding cell, got released. Got court date 6 months later, deferred sentence, 40 hrs community service, theft class, and 6 months probation. That's it.
I've lifted every day since, and never even given a second look. I've gotten at least 10,000 in merch since for personal use, and boosted about $3000. I just switched jobs with no issue, and will be making 15-20K more per year in the new one. Oh and I was in a government job when I got caught, they knew and no problem. So the whole you get caught your life is over is kind of BS. If you have marketable job skills with a strong career skill set and are a good candidate you get hired. So yep, lift on and prosper.
sounds about white
This is the truth and good on you for saying it.
Good luck lifting and stay safe.
