    Default Can a Store I Stole From Track Me Through My Debit Card

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Pennsylvania

    It's been almost two years since I shoplifted, and I recently got a debit card for the first time. I haven't activated or used it yet though because I'm afraid that the police might track me through it. Is this possible? I don't go into the stores that I shoplifted in at all.

    A debit card is issued through your checking account. If they wanted you your checking account is a paper trace. Are you wanted? Have you paid the store back? If everything is taken care of, chill out!

    Well I was caught one time and paid the civil demand and everything was fine, but the other two times I wasn't caught.

    You are worried because you stole and were not caught. Do you think there is a warrant out for your arrest?

    I don't believe so... how do I find out? I mean the one store that I stole from one other time was the one that I got caught in and they didn't prosecute me for the other time, so I just assumed I got lucky and wasn't caught. However, the other store, I had gone in multiple times after I shoplifted and I wasn't stopped or followed around that I was aware of.

    You can go online and see if your county has a listing of arrest warrants. See if your name is there. Have renewed your license since then? It would have showed up there. Have you been stopped for any traffic violation since? You would have known then for sure. Now, you see that crime does not pay, because you are living with a bad conscience.

    Well I got my license for the first time about six months after I stole both times. Would it show then? I got pulled over in May, but wasn't ticketed or anything. Would they have told me then?

    And trust me, I stress about it every. single. day. It definitely wasn't worth it whatsoever. At all!

    The cases when you stole and was not caught, how much was the merchandise valued at and do you still have it? If this happened two yrs. ago and you were wanted they would have known then in May when you were pulled over.

    They were both about $11, and no.
