    F.B.I. Agent Accused Of Shoplifting 36 Cents Worth Of Wire From N.J. Store

    Wouldn't LE have been able to determine that? This blurb states that he could lose his job over it so unless the full details haven't been released, it doesn't seem so.

    I was being sarcastic. I guess the guy just thinks he's above the law.

    what if this was an honest mistake??
    seriously, I've walked out of some stores with unpaid for
    merchandise and not even realize it.

    I would return it immediately and be BRIGHT red!!!

    I almost did that yesterday!! Bought some fabric at Joann and laid the cut pieces on top of some fat quarters..the cashier just rang up the cut pieces from the cutting ticket and didn't ring up the fat quarters...thankfully I caught it before I walked out


    Anyway, if he did do it on purpose I agree...incredibly stupid!
