My question involves criminal law for the state of: MD
Someone and I were in a store (they were doing all of the shopping). We get to the self checkout area. They ask if they can use my card to pay and give me the difference in cash and I agree. I owed them some money from when we went to a restaurant, I only had plastic and the place couldn't split the bill.
Later on, I learned they had "shorted" the self checkout by only scanning a fraction of the items. Basically I commented on how the charge was so low for so many items and they admitted to doing it.
I'm a bit concerned because:
A- Theft took place
B- If I were in charge of the corporate cop dept., I'd make sure the self checkout lanes were videotaped and reviewed pretty well.
C- My name could be tied to the incident via the card info
Any suggestions as to what to do would be helpful. I also apologize for the vague language. The help box at the top advised me to leave out details that could compromise anonymity.
