The most common example of when a person has committed Shoplifting is when that person is in a store and they take the store’s goods with intent to deprive the store of the goods by removing the goods from the store without paying the purchase price or by concealing the goods. Even if you pay less than the purchase price of the goods by some trick or artifice such as altering, removing, substituting or otherwise disfiguring the label, price tag, or marking of the goods, you have committed Shoplifting.
