Arrested for Shoplifting at Target?

Target is a large, national retailer that specializes in retailing all sorts of goods and food items for lower cost. As a big box container store, Target has grown rapidly to become one of the largest retailers here in the State of Florida and in the United States in general. Getting caught shoplifting or stealing from a Target in Orlando can be a serious offense as Target has a strong anti-shoplifting policy and utilizes the latest security techniques to enforce their anti-theft store policy. From electronics, food, furniture, bath items, toys, clothes, lingerie, home furnishings, and a myriad of other items, Target has a lot to choose from.

Unfortunately, people end up making mistakes and stealing one of those aforementioned items from the store. If that happens and you get caught stealing from Target you could be facing

  • Fines
  • Community Service
  • Classes
  • Counseling
  • Probation
  • Driver’s License Suspension
  • Jail or Prison

If you are caught committing petit theft, usually it was for an item or items less than three hundred dollars. If you are charged with grand theft from Target, then it was likely you were caught with an item worth more than three hundred ($300.00) dollars.
