NOT CHARGED | SHOPLIFTING – State v. Mr. K. (DMC No. 8934) (Phoenix Police Department DR2007-71180996): Mr. K. was shopping with another young man, when the two of them were leaving a Walmart with two computer towers in a shopping cart.  When police contacted both individuals, Mr. K. indicated he was not trying to leave the store, but merely leaving the towers by the front door while he went outside to get his wallet.  The other gentleman Mr. K. was with admitted to trying to actually steal the items.  We explained to the Prosecutors that the other individual was actually trying to steal unbeknownst to Mr. K.   Mr. K. was never charged with any crimes.


DISMISSED | SHOPLIFTING – State v. Mr. H. (DMC No. 8999) (West Mesa Justice Court JC2009-121878): Mr. H. was observed going through a department store trash can and picking out receipts.  He would then pick the matching merchandise off the shelves in attempt to return those products. Due to Mr. H.’s young age, and drug addiction, we were able to convince the Prosecutor to dismiss charges in exchange for 30 hours of community service.  Mr. H. also enrolled himself voluntarily into a drug treatment plan.  No conviction is on Mr. H.’s record.

DISMISSED | SHOPLIFTING – State v. Mr. M. (DMC No. 4887) (Phoenix City Court 3164538): Mr. M. was at a Home Depot, when he was accused of attempting to leave the store with a metal door valued at a $175.  He was charged with shoplifting, and we were able to show the Prosecutor that he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s approximately 3 years earlier.  After going through the Prosecutor’s “Hardship Committee”, we were able to convince them to dismiss the shoplifting exchange for some classes under a “diversion” program.



NOT CHARGED | SHOPLIFTING – State v. Mr. P. (DMC No. 10862) (Glendale Police Department DR12-034118;DR11-094847;DR11-104230): Mr. P. was accused of shoplifting video games at a Walmart.  The Walmart’s Loss Prevention Officer’s then claimed that he had done it three other times.  He was arrested and charged with the shoplift of the video games.  During our investigation, we were able to convince the Prosecutor that no evidence existed for the other three shoplifting allegations.  If all four shoplifting had been filed against Mr. P. he would have been looking at two separate felonies and two separate misdemeanors, which could have exposed him to prison time.


NOT CHARGED | SHOPLIFTING – Ms. K. was observed at a Dillard’s store in the Scottsdale Fashion Square.  She was stopped approximately 100 meters outside the store by store security and they found various items of clothing that still had security tags on them in her bag.  They obtained her information, then released her and contacted police.  Because the police hadn’t actually interviewed Ms. K., in addition to some of the issues regarding her being detained and questioned, we were able to keep any charges from being filed against Ms. K.

DISMISSED at JURY TRIAL | SHOPLIFTING  – State v. Mr. R. (DMC No. 5248) (Phoenix City Court 3204962): Mr. R. was accused of going to a Robinson’s May store and picking up a water purifier from the sales floor, then taking it to the front register to try to and return it.  Loss Prevention Officer’s stated they had recognized him from previous incidents, and he was arrested for shoplifting.  The case was set for jury trial, and at the time of trial the State could not meet its burden with the proper Loss Prevention witnesses.  The case was dismissed in its entirety.
