My boyfriend got caught stealing on camera and they want to charge me for being in store with him ?

Mere presence alone would most likely not be enough. You would have had to do something to further the the crime or were somehow involved otherwise. The store most likely will have cameras so as long as you don’t look like you are involved, the Commonwealth’s case would be weak in my opinion.
I will say this, if the police do try to contact you, hire an attorney before doing anything else.
