My son (23) was apprehended by Coles supermarket security for shoplifting in Canberra
items to the value of under $22.00. ( as I am not sure exact amount of cents)
He was told to sign a form and was banned from the store for 12 months.
They said that they do not call the Police.
On the way out he paid for the stolen items and left.
Seems a bit odd to me that they would just ban him from the store.
I am concerned that the Police will be notified.
Can anyone clarify this for me?
He did a stupid thing.
He has return to study with a hope of working overseas, which will be dashed if the Police get involved.
