Customer Question

Hi. I was caught today in Walmart by two undercover agent who I'm not sure if they were cops or not. It's my second time shoplifting but firs time being caught. They just ask me to empty my purse in a room at the end of walmart and i started crying and I told them that I don't need to do this but it's like a disease. He asked me how many times I did it and I said two. They didn't call cops and they just told me I'm not allowed to enter Walmart for a year. I asked them if it's gonna be a record for me and thy said no. I signed a paper and admit not to go there for a year. They asked me if I had an id an I gave it to them.

They are not going to share your information with the police. So long as you don't enter their store again you will not be charged. If you do enter the store again they will have you charged with trespass. Does that answer your question?
