For $10 of stuff they're not going to launch a full investigation lasting 3/4 of a year for a thief who stole things that could be replaced by pocket change. You're okay, don't even worry about it. If nobody did shit to you as you left, don't even worry about your information getting out to other stores.

I wish you luck the next time you go lifting!

Refer to the Terminology Guide for information on the different assortment of tags.

And remember: they can't stop you just for the alarm unless they see you conceal or rip off a tag, the alarms are almost useless. This doesn't mean be careless, in fact, be careFUL, don't act suspicious, don't be careless, so you don't get busted.

I wish you luck.

Intriguing. Well, if you're not going to lift again that's your decision. However, if you want to and are just scared, I'd suggest pulling small lifts at dollar trees and smaller stores (if you're trusted out of the house after this..) Just avoid dangerous stores like Dillards unless you have a method or a plan.

I know you explicitly stated that you're not brazen enough to keep walking, but that's literally all you have to do. Keep walking. They literally can't detain you unless they saw you conceal.

Turning back and letting them detain you is a conscious effort.

No specifics. Europe has different stores than the US which have different types of security. Check out w/shoplifting for more details on stores and their security. If you can't find your stores, go in and case it while acting like a customer. PTZ Cameras? Scanners? Item Tags? If any of those terms sound like what your store has, you're going to want to be careful.
