Will I get arrested if I get caught stealing bowling shoes from a bowling alley?

I was out drinking and bowling with some friends over the weekend and we were talking about how much it costs to rent bowling shoes. After enough beers my friend came up with the genius idea of stealing the shoes. At the time I thought it was a great idea but he got a call the next day from the bowling alley saying they had us on camera taking the shoes. What will happen to us?

    First return the shoes, maybe the owner will not report it to the police. If charged then get an attorney and fight the matter even if guilty. Something usually can be worked out.

    The business could call the police, show the video, file a complaint and you will be charged. At times a business only wants their items back. Then charge you afterwards. You were in the wrong.

    You should retain a good criminal lawyer to handle the case. He will get an ACD dismissal if you have a clean record and you will not have a conviction. That pair of $25 shoes that you did no even need could have cost you your career and prevented you from getting government benefits, loans, an apartment, a decent job, and everything else that comes with a criminal record.
