My daughter was accused of possible shoplifting. She was not

Hello, my daughter was accused of possible shoplifting. She was not apprehended by LP or observed by AAFES employees taking any items. I was approached by LP saying they identified my daughter by video. When asked to see the video it is clear my daughter and her friend are both leaving the dressing room when the friend discards a package. My daughter was only aware of the friends intent after noticing an attempt to open a package after which she stated she decided to leave the dressing room. The incident had occurred 30 days from the time I was notified by LP. My daughter is a minor. Is there a case here being that no one observed her taking anything? I did not allow her to be questioned, but do I need counsel or can I ignore?? Thanks in advance for the assistance.JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: overseasJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I'm civilian, retired military. I was going to visit with the legal center today.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I had an appointment to have my daughter give a statement but I decided to decline after viewing the tape and getting her account of the matter.
