He definitely could've made a note of your ID since he thought you were returning that item, but since they didn't call the cops on you and you got to leave, you might be in the clear but, suffice it to say definitely do NOT go back to that store.

If they caught your friend, and you're on camera too, hell NO don't go back there. You asking that, plus your parents are possibly about to find out what you did, I'm definitely not trying to be your Mommy, but I don't think continuing to lift is a good idea, giving the circumstances...

And: you're "about to be grounded for life"? Are you even old enough to be on this site? There is an age restriction to be here I think...

Hey, you walked out with things you wanted, and nobody noticed and busted you. I wouldn't call it a fail!

I can't predict something like that, but seeing as how he knew your name, plus you went back a second time, tells me he has more than enough info to report you to the cops. Your being 17 means nothing as you're close enough to being an adult, they very well could press charges. Hope for the best but expect the worst.

I've had no experience here myself, but I know I've seen it mentioned on Tumblr that pretty much the sales people there are young girls who would rather chat with one another and mess around on their phone than actually work. Of course, all stores (and associates) will vary. It's best to do a trial run and scope out the place before you do anything. Best of luck!

You have to be absolutely thorough in applying the aluminum foil or else the signal can transmit through. You need multiple layers, anywhere from (estimate) 5 to 10 (depending on thickness). Test it by calling a cell phone placed inside the bag. If there's any way to line the bag inside a flap of fabric that's sewn over the foil, do that. Know that if you're caught with the bag, it will make your charges far more severe (since you planned on committing theft and were using that bag.)

Don't head straight for the makeup first. That's one area LP watch since it's small, easily concealable items. The issue is: how are you going to hold onto the makeup you want and interact with the associate who could possibly count what you have? They usually don't give a flip, but it is possible. Leaving the buggy behind like you don't care is a red flag, too.

It's watched by LP because (especially if you're a woman and you've a purse), you could be leaning over to try and conceal your hand motions as you're putting something into your bag. Sometimes people will actually pull the buggy behind them and load shit into their cart. They'll watch that. People who might be yawning a lot (this releasing muscle tension in the jaw from being nervous). Making a beeline right to a certain area. Doubling back on a route through a store, and so on and so on. I'm not LP but I've worked in retail for a long time. When a store you work in doesn't have loss prevention, the associates themselves are taught what to look out for.
