Shoplifting refers to stealing from a store or business place. Shoplifting is typically a spontaneous offense. It is also a crime that might have been committed accidentally. For instance, while visiting a store, you might forget to remove sunglasses after trying them on.
Shoplifting has various forms, while the most common and obvious method of shoplifting is stealing a product from a shop and hiding it under a jacket, purse or backpack and then moving towards the exit instead of a payment desk. You can also be charged with shoplifting for neglecting to pay at the restaurant or hotel after using their services also counts under the same offense; eating food at a grocery store without paying for it; and swapping an item’s price tag to avoid paying the real price of that item.
