Home Depot is a large store that caters to people wanting to improve their homes. They sell everything from flooring, to appliances, and tools. If you are caught stealing from Home Depot, then the charges are going to be severe. You will be facing a criminal record that could haunt you for the rest of your life. You may even be facing jail time. These consequences can affect not only you, but also your family. If you have loved ones that depend on you, then you do not want to be in jail when they need you the most.

People make mistakes all of the time. Some people may steal items that they need but cannot afford for their home. Some people may steal tools that they need to be able to work and provide for their families. The fact of the matter is stealing does not make you a bad person. The Umansky Law Firm looks deeply into the circumstances surrounding the situation.

Getting Caught

Stores like Home Depot have high tech security cameras and, often times, security guards. They even employ people to act as shoppers and observe for anyone suspected of shoplifting.  If the security team at home depot believes you are stealing they will often wait till you walk out the store to apprehend you. You will then be held/detained at the store until the Police arrive. During this time a store employee will probably attempt to ask you questions, but DO NOT answer until you have a lawyer present.

After the police arrive, they will take you into custody and then you will be booked and held in jail until you see a judge, unless you are able to get out on a bond or bail. At this point it's crucial to call a good theft lawyer that has the experience and expertise to defend your case.
