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.

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?
Find a way to make money fast
Tell your parents
calling it right now

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 !!!
