I was finally on my own without the guy training me. I was talking with the front end girls (of course!) and I watch this guy walk in and right away you get that feeling at the pit of your stomach that he's going to take. So I went over and watched him start dumping Robotussin down his pants. He proceeded to go for the doors and I followed him right out stopped him; he came back to the office with me. I start asking him why (which I know why he was stealing it, they use it to make drugs) but he came up with some other excuse. I then asked him if he had any priors he said he was on parole for theft and writing bad checks. At that point I searched and cuffed him. I was going to prosecute anyways because of the amount and it was Pharmaceutical products. Then two sheriff's Deputies showed up and then two Parole Officers, needless to say it was an interesting night. The only thing that the Sheriff said is that I should have cuffed him when I stopped him, other then that I did everything perfect which made me feel good since it was my first stop alone. Also an employee I used as a witness (we always use witnesses) asked me when I decided to press charges and I told him I was going to press from the beginning because of the Pharmaceutical's. He asked if I felt bad because I told the guy that I only want to get his information and the product back and then he would be on his way, and then I popped him. Hell no I didn't feel bad, this guy was stealing drugs to make drugs and I don't feel bad for lying to crooks. Now if it was a homeless guy stealing food or a little old lady stealing food I probably wouldn't have pressed and I would have felt sorry for their situation, but in that case lying to that crook didn't bother me one bit and I defiantly didn't lose sleep over it.
