I was approached by a Loss Prevention Detective and he interviewed me. I was so nervous; I thought he knew something, or that he caught me. He began to explain how they have cameras all over the vicinity, and then he proceeded to ask me "What did you steal?" He didn't provide any footage (I would've asked to see it, but that would be defending my wrongdoings?) I didn't want to risk anything, so I told the truth. I stole approximately $320 of merchandise. The detective then said that this is only between me and the store. There were no police officers. The meeting was between my manager, the detective, and I.
I wrote a written report, of what I stole, how I stole it, as well as a long paragraph about how i have to pay beak they give me restitution note.
