    Hey, yesterday I was caught shop lifting (i know it was such a stupid thing to do) i have been doing it for a while now but for some reason when i went to shop lift yesterday i had a bad feeling. I went into boots first and stole at least £60 worth of makeup. I came out and everything was fine no one suspected my nothing (btw i had a shopping bag and put everything in there). Then i had went into primark and took alot of things worth £25. As i was coming out there was security outside waiting for me and he had said 'can you come with me' at the moment i just froze. And he was leadig me the way to the detention room and as he was doing the another securty guard was speaking so loudly and everyone was looking. It was so embarrasing. In the room they had told me to empty out my bag. They had found items from boots aswell and i admitted to taking them. The police came and said i wont be arrested but i will be banned and fined. They took a photo copy of my college student id and i have wrote my real address as i panicked thinkin i will be taken to jail anyways and they guys who caught me said i will be taken to the station. . He took me to boots for me to say sorry and then he let me go. While i was there i was told i will be facing a fine worth £300 or more. I am only 16 i dont have that sort of money. I have also read to ignore the letters and nothing will happenq. However the guy also mentioned if i ignore the fine letter bailiffs will be coming to my house and then an action will be taken for me to go court is this true?. Im really scared. Can someone please tell me what to do i know i did wrong and i have learnt my lesson and i will certainly not do shop lifting ever again. And i do not plan on telling my parents as they have alot of problems themselve in paying the bills. Btw i didn not get a crimal record or anything like that.
    What motivates you to shoplift? Like honestly? Yes, you're 16. The fine is hefty. You HAVE to tell your parents. How else will you be able to pay the money back? Why not look for a part-time job? With the money you get from working, you can spend it on all of the makeup you like!

    these companies provide thousands of jobs to people who would otherwise be unemployed.
    these companies pay millions of pounds in taxes which keep the country running.
    it is a little ungrateful to steal their products.

    A £300 fine for shoplifting? It's a windup.

    So, I'm guessing you haven't told your parents and you don't intend to?

    Two Options:

    Find a way to make money fast

    or

    Tell your parents
    inb4 steals something to make £300 .... and ends up with a larger fine and jail time.

    calling it right now

    "Last year, Alliance Boots’ sales hit £22.4bn with underlying profits reaching £805m. However, the company paid just £114m in tax, including £64m in the UK, up £31m on the previous year. In the UK, under the Boots brand where it has 2,000 stores, sales were £6.55bn."

    so although only 1/4 of the sales were here they paid us over 50% of their tax. i think this is cause for celebration.
    thanks Boots !!!

    Listen kid. Anyone giving you a hard time for shop lifting at 16 needs a reality check. 80% of the population have stolen something at some point. Too many small minded people in this world. Shop lifting is wrong but it’s not the worse crime in the world! You say you have a college badge? Meaning you are still in full time education?? Good for you. Focus on that. Stick at it, get some good grades, good job, nice home etc. One day you could look at back and wonder what all the fuss was about😉

    to anyone outraged at this kid stealing from boots saying he's not been fined enough, boots are a slimy tax dodging corporation.
    I'm not condoning shop lifting at all. I have never stolen anything too afraid of authority. But I don't really think you should consider stealing from boots stealing when you think about how much they take from society and how little they put back in. Also the unethical **** primark does too with their sweat shops and stuff wouldn't worry about that either. These companies rob normal people blind everyday it's just they do it legally. Stop stealing though cos it'll get you into trouble.
    Yes I understand that these companies are unethical, but stealing is stealing, and it doesn’t matter who from

    Idk why people are so rude in this it’s disgusting. Yes girl you did steal and yes you got caught it has similarly happened to my friend from being banned from the whole shopping centre from trying to steal one foundation from Debenhams for a year and got £218 pounds to pay from a letter and as she told me I told her the only way she could do it is call them and tell them about your problem. When she did, a lady has been very understanding and put her account on hold for 3 month to try get almost the half of the money. My friend did find a job and got most of it paid and that’s what you have to do. You don’t necessarily need to tell your parents because I know how parents can be and I know you don’t want to ruin your relationship with them let’s be real we all done things our parents should never know. So you go girl call them and speak to them and get a job, anything you can pay will be helpful because at least they can see that you’re not running away from it. I hope the best for you because this can be very stressful in such an exam period. My friend was even thinking about suicide and it’s not necessary and everything has an answer.
