Yes I did. When I was 14 yrs old, my best friend and I went downtown to a store called Kresskees. We were walking through the store all cocky and stuff. She was an isle ahead of me, and I passed by an empty till/cash register, with a display of Hersey's Easter Creme Eggs. My favorite. I grabbed two, called out loud to my friend AND tossed one to her. Told you I was cocky. Any ways, we preceeded to eat the evidence. On our way out of the store, we were stopped, and searched by the store detective. Good thing we had eaten the evidence, because we were definately busted. After a stern lecture, they let us go. I was very scared when it happened. Scared me straight. And to top it off, I was starting a new highschool the next day, as a freshman, and as luck would have it, the store detective was a senior at the same highschool. He was pointing us out and laughing at us, in front of his friends, of course. Looking back, I have to laugh at myself. Boy, was I an idiot. LOL. But I am glad I was caught when I was, glad I was embarassed, and happy about the lesson I learned.

I have shop lifted onece in my life when I was 8 years and never again. It was the most embarrassing thing I ever did. The security saw me that day, stopped me and called my mom to come pick me up. I got the yelling at home, and got punished like never before.

I actually have plenty of time. Never got caught until that last time. It ws a work related incident. Got caught, arrested, locked up and fired form my job where I was a principal. Then I was stupid and did it again, got fired from that job. Never did it agan cause it ruined my life. I regret it. I really do.

Yes I got caught!! I was at K-Mart during Christmas time and my friend and I decided to steal some gift's (yeah I know, that's terrible) well when it was time to leave, we walked right into the hands of security, we even tried to run, but got tired lol. Anyway's they called the cop's and he put us in handcuff's and walked us out of the store. He brought us home and that was the worst thing ever, all my neighbors were outside and saw us in the cop car. Never again. I learn my lesson.
