    It would work something like this: They videotape you committing a crime. They identify you from the video. They make a police report.

    Have you seen news footage of a guy robbing a bank/7-11 store? Have you ever heard of them getting away and then being captured later? The same holds true for shoplifters. We have had violent shoplifters get away, we notify the PD and news agencies - a few days later, someone calls in with a tip and the PD goes and picks them up for not only shoplifting, but assault, battery and fleeing the scene of a crime.

    Big retail crimes, you stand a good chance of being arrested after the fact. Being worried if your face out of 1,000 was spotted stealing a pair of earrings....doubtful. It almost sounds like you're asking how far you can push it....I'd say stop now before you get in deep doo-doo.

    What can happen, however, is that they could print out of a picture of you committing the act. Then who knows, someone that works at that store just might know who you are and make a positive ID, especially if you live in a small town. They could also distribute the printout to other stores in the area and have them be on the lookout for you.

    Soon or later, you will go back to the store you stole from again and get caught. By that time, they have many known theft cases filed already, and you can just wait for them all add up againsting you at once.
