This upcoming holiday weekend always seems to result in more than usual shoplifting and willful concealment arrests as well as other theft charges all across New Hampshire. If you are accused of any type of theft or shoplifting offense it is extremely important you do not say anything or let anyone bully you into saying anything.
The shoplifting laws and theft penalties in New Hampshire are tough. If you are brought into loss prevention or a store security office remember you are not obligated to sign anything and do not let anyone pressure you into feeling you are. More than likely the main objective is to get you to make any type of admission they can.
DO NOT let store security take your picture, they are not the paparazzi and are definitely not the police. They cannot make you do anything. You do not even need to give store security, mall security, or loss protection your identification!!!
If you are suspected of shoplifting, either store/mall security or the loss preventions department will call the police. When the cops arrive make sure you are respectful and do not resist arrest OR admit to anything either! Be polite, do not make any statements, and make sure you have some bail money with you.
