Very rarely will an LPO go to that extent unless he's positive you selected and concealed something. If you truly didn't conceal anything, the LPO sounds like he fucked up, big time.
I was accused of stealing this item called HAPPY PLANET ENERGY+.
It's a small energy shot, I picket it up, saw it was $2.99+ tax, I thought I would buy it so I picket one up and started walking around the store to see if they sell any other foods or drinks. (I was looking for something quick to eat before work)
Then I decided $2.99 was too expensive because I could buy 2 Rockstars for $4 at 7Eleven. So I went back to the shelf(where I got it from) and putted back in there.
I was not performing a magic trick, I put it back very obviously. No funny movements, I did not reach my hands in pocket or anything.
I guess he did not see it carefully?
Then I walked around the store again to see if they sell any protein bar or energy drinks, couldn't find anything so I decided to leave.
Then suddenly he grabbed me and all that.
When he took me into the office(at Thrifty Foods) after all the pushing and pulling infront of people, he even gave me this stupid lecture "you made this unusual movement with hands and arms while you were walking" and he even told me that direction I walked seemed to be suspicious. I was like WTF?
But then when it came down to it, he didn't call the police.
That just showed he didn't have strong enough ground believe that I stole something.
I had to go work and couldn't waste time, I told him he's an idiot for refusing my offer to pat me and just let me go.
Initially he said "no I don't do searches" and told me to wait for the cops.
To make a long story short, he changed his mind and patted me, and I kinda kicked outta there. The whole thing was just dumb.
He did not give me his information, he did not take my information, I specifically had to call back the manager of Thrifty Foods a couple time to finally get a hold of him.
And the Thrifty's manager gave me a phone number for FBIG's manager because according to Thrifty's manager "we will not be involved".
Anyways, yeah the whole thing was just dumb.
