I think it's $1,000 or more in Michigan to be felony. If the person wasn't stopped or anything, I think the store has a 1 year limit to file complaint to be valid.

Civil summon are not tied to police or court and can be ignored with little to no recursion. It'd likely to cost the store more to get court to force unpaid civil fine and generally will not end up on credit record so just ignore civil demands.

However when there's police arrest, and person gets a court date, and the person is no show, the warrant does not expire. Unethical LPT: wait a few years or so, odds are the people who contacted police and requested court has moved away or such and most likely will not show up so if you're OK being on the run with a warrant, then get it cleared at no jail time or fine. If by chance you get stopped by police and are notified about the warrant, they might ask if you can post bond, tell them you don't have money and don't know anyone who does they are likely to let you go because jail's often too full to hold a lifter who skipped court.

This works only if it's locked at OS level and not at BIOS level. Many laptop don't make this part easy so if someone used password lock at power on to prevent user from using laptop, a few might have internal reset requiring you to take it apart, and some are not resettable at all.

If OP already have laptop and it's locked at BIOS level, take it apart and sell it pieces by pieces minus the mainboard. Toss it. If it's locked at OS level, a hard drive wipe will likely work.

The deactivator would still make a loud bug-zapper noise when it zaps the tag and I am sure employee who hears zapping sound from places that don't have cash register would be suspicious. Plus if the police catches you mid-lifting with the deactivator pad, you could be charged for possession of a burglary tool, felony charge.

Stick with cutting tag IMO. Good sharp knife can still be small enough to conceal and not be discovered. Such as inside your bra or underwear.

Stealing car isn't that hard. It's keeping it for long that can be hard. Some cars have tracking devices like On Star that police can use to locate and recover stolen car.

Even if you get away, you would need to get a fake plate whose number matches the number of another car of the same make, model, and color so you won't show up anything suspicious with a random plate check (unless the other car has been doing illegal stuff). And do avoid getting in accident, having no insurance can really screw you. It's almost impossible to get insurance on stolen or unregistered vehicle.

I think OP meant to say he suspect he was spotted stealing or scamming, but wasn't apprehended.

To OP, I would stay away like everyone said. If you don't get anything in the mail or police visiting, you're probably fine. They may have had suspicion but couldn't prove who you are, or couldn't prove you tried something illegal.

Still stay away for about 6 months so everyone would forget what you look like.

Looks like something a golf detacher would work. Or a very strong magnet in the right place.

No ID = they call police and let police figure you out. You will end up with arrest record, possible need to post bond to get out, and have court date. In Michigan, warrant for shoplifting never expires so if you skipped the court, and police happens to run a random plate check on your car or stopped you for anything, it's back to the jail.

And Target will find out your name anyway.

I think it depends on how long the local or state law allows any case before it expires due to statue of limitation. Say, for example, there is 1 year limit for a store to charge, if any info they got is older than 1 year they can't do anything about it with the court system, and would have to leave it out of case building. They'd probably keep info for life though.

Some items are tagged and I've seen some ink tag attached to expensive items like $60 circular saw blade. I don't know if there are tower but some stores have overhead door detector instead of side towers.

Depending on laws, any case building may have time limit before statue of limitation expires and they can't file charges on older shoplifting case. I'd stay away from all Target for a year minimum to make sure their evidence rots away

In some places it is illegal to charge the server for the loss due to dine and dash, check with the labor law.

All caused by a stolen ID card.

AI still isn't ready for solo law enforcement. Had a human been involved, they would have checked and noticed the person seen causing crime and with ID does not match the person whose name is on the ID.

It is a risk for them though. If they jump on someone and someone does not have any item at all, it becomes a bad stop and the store can get in serious trouble. Easily cost the store several thousand dollars or more from defamation of character or such.

If they didn't see you conceal either by camera or in person and they can't verify the item in question is still on you, they are supposed to back off. Some LP with balls may intentionally follow the suspect very closely in hope of scaring the suspect into dumping and leaving.
