My question involves criminal law for the state of: Colorado
I currently work at Macy’s and when there is an item without a tag and not in the system we are supposed to find a similar product and make a copy of the tag for the unlabeled item. I found a cheaper item and used the tag to make a copy for the item I wanted to purchase which had no label and was not in the system. I had another employee ring me up after my shift and and paid for the item at the low price. Is this considered theft? All employees when leaving having purchased items must place a duplicate receipt in a box before leaving which I did.
