Types of Shoplifting

There are many types of shoplifting crimes in New Jersey, including:

  • Taking property from the store
  • Concealing an item
  • Changing containers
  • Altering a price tag
  • Taking a shopping cart
  • Ringing up a product at a lower price as an employee

If you have committed one of these acts, the prosecution must show that you did so with intent to steal. Attorney Goldblatt will fight this charge and work to show that you did not intend to steal the property.

A shoplifting conviction can carry serious penalties. You could face jail time, fines and a criminal record. The penalties vary considerably and depend on the value of the merchandise stolen as well as your criminal record.
