You should never sign anything that you do not fully understand. However, for now there is no much you can do. If the security did not call the police at the time you were caught, it doesnot seem likely that you will be prosecuted criminally. As soon as you receive any paperwork from KMART be sure to find a good attorney to help with the next step.
If you are contacted by the court or police, acquire an Attorney to assist you in the matter.

They can send you a summons even if the police did not contact you at the time, but that is probably unlikely. Try not to worry yourself to death about something that very well may not happen, and then place it in the hands of a very good lawyer if it does.
