My question involves criminal law for the state of Texas. I shoplifted from Walmart, and on my way out the door, their loss prevention rep who normally checks receipts attempted to stop me--I think she was tipped off by the bulging full bag I was carrying, although I don't think the merchandise was visible. She called for me a few times, but I did not acknowledge her in any way or even look at her and just simply walked out of the parking lot. I waited in a nearby parking lot, made sure nobody was standing outside or near my car, and returned and drove off with the merchandise.
Obviously Wal-mart has security cameras, and consequently, recorded footage of me taking the stuff. Worse, I am a regular shopper at Walmart, and have paid with my debit card many times.
Should I expect the police to show up at my door, and if they do, will I be booked at the jail, or just cited and told to go to court? I'm not certain as to the value of the merchandise, but it was definitely under $100. I really appreciate everybody's time and help.
P.S. For anybody considering shoplifting or who all ready shoplifts, I got away with it many times before I was caught. You're never safe. There's no substitute for not doing dumb things, and once you're caught, there's no going back. Don't put yourself in my position, this is driving me insane with worry.
