Theft charges often arise at large department stores or other large retail stores with an on staff securing team. Often, the store accuses someone of theft before anyone has tried to exit the store without paying for merchandise. In some situations, the store will accuse several people of theft when only one person was stealing. The security staff usually make assumptions that you are stealing that are difficult to disprove.
In order to prove a theft, the government has to prove that you took property, without lawful authority, with the intent to deprive the store of that property.
