    Don't know about other states but in SC here is one of the shoplifting statutes about concealing merchandise-

    SECTION 16-13-120. Shoplifting; presumptions from concealment of unpurchased goods.

    It is permissible to infer that any person wilfully concealing unpurchased goods or merchandise of any store or other mercantile establishment either on the premises or outside the premises of the store has concealed the article with the intention of converting it to his own use without paying the purchase price thereof within the meaning of Section 16-13-110. It is also permissible to infer that the finding of the unpurchased goods or merchandise concealed upon the person or among the belongings of the person is evidence of wilful concealment. If the person conceals or causes to be concealed the unpurchased goods or merchandise upon the person or among the belongings of another, it is also permissible to infer that the person so concealing such goods wilfully concealed them with the intention of converting them to his own use without paying the purchase price thereof within the meaning of Section 16-13-110.


    So I would guess if one ate food before paying for it in a "store" then one is guilty of shoplifting. It is concealed in ones stomach right One can't produce it in its original form and claim you were going to pay for it, and it was concealed

    Mark, several years ago Dallas had a K-Mart close and they said the reason was just too much shoplifting. Of course, since then, all the K-Marts in this area have closed up.

    That might apply to an apple or other article of food that had no packaging.. however inthe case of a soda, or bag of chips.. the empy container setting in the shopping cart amongst the other items IMHO should be construed as you are intending to pay for it.

    I agree. I do this all the time. When I go to the super Wallymart grocery/misc. shopping with my wife, "I ain't going anywhere for a while", so I grab a snickers and a mountain dew. I place the wrapper/container in the toddler section of the cart and pay for them at checkout. I've never had an associate/cashier get on to me yet.

    Oh and I can neither confirm, nor deny that I took a grape or two from the produce section in the past, prior to purchase to test the quality...

    Guess I'm a hardened criminal.

    I was standing behind a lady in line at a Wal-Mart, who took a candy bar off the shelf and ate it while waiting in line. She "accidentally" dropped the wrapper on the ground right before she was checked out.

    As the cashier was finishing checking her out, I reached over and picked up the wrapper and said "Ma'am, you accidentally dropped this".

    She turned red and added it to her purchases.

    Anyone here accidentally shop lifted?

    I'll start.

    Many years ago I was shopping at publix.. had all my items in the cart, and had a 2-litre soda on the lower under-rack.. paid for my items, and got out to my truck... while loading my groceries i saw that soda i had forgot about. Quite embarrissed I walked back in with it to the customer service desk.. On my way to the desk the manager walked by and asked if i had a problem with the product. Trying to hide the embarrisment I said i had accidentally stole it and was headed back in to pay for it. He laughed and sent me right back out... I know it was a sub 1$ item.. but it was the principle of the matter...

    I don't remember accidentally shoplifting, but I always am in a quandry over what to do with small items that will just fall through the basket to the floor. Do I put them in my pocket temporarily? I don't think so...I know I'd forget and get busted at the register. So, I'll hold them in my hand until I get something in the cart I can put them on or inside. Somebody needs to invent a cart with a little solid bucket or pocket for little stuff like this. It would keep folks like me honest.
