Good dayI have just applied for my Police Clearance Certificate. But i am scared that I might have a record.About 6 years ago I was accussed of stealing a girls camera. She opened a case against me at a police station. A detective called me asking me questions and i said i dont know what this woman is talking about ect ect. A few weeks later i received a form in the post saying that no evidence was found for this case against me ect ect. So will this now reflect on my record as I never appreard infronot of a judge oor was ever charged.RegardsMr. Roberts

Good day. It is 99.9% sure that this will not reflect on that record. The only thing that should appear on that record, would be a conviction. From the sms, it is clear that the SAPD and/or Prosecutors did not believe that there is a case and if you have never been to court or paid an admission of guilt fine (not possible for theft) there is no way that there can be a conviction. So, I would not worry too much if I were you.
