WHAT IS SHOPLIFTING?

Surprisingly, Minnesota does not have a specific law dealing with shoplifting. Instead, Minnesota has a law that deals with theft; shoplifting is a form of theft. It is the taking of another’s property without the right or permission to do so with the intent to permanently deprive the other of that property. There is no requirement that the person leave the store. In addition, paying for the item after the theft, is not a defense.

All shoplifting offenses are crimes, no matter how small the value of the item. Shoplifting crimes arenot “payable” offenses. You cannot simply “pay the ticket”. You must appear in court where you will have to go in front of a judge, or retain an attorney to appear for you.
