This coming holiday weekend seems to result in a lot of shoplifting arrests, willful concealment, and other theft charges all across New Hampshire. However the number of shoplifting arrests in Rockingham County, Strafford County, and Hillsborough County are significantly higher than others on Black Friday.

Each year Black Friday gets bigger than the year before with stores trying to outdo one another, offering the biggest and the best, cheaper than their competitors.  No matter how popular Black Friday increasingly becomes,  or how much Cyber Monday tries to steal its spotlight offering those less inclined to pepper spray their way to the biggest TV an online version the following Monday.  Does it really matter who stampedes their way to the front of the line for the biggest, best, cheapest?  Not if you've just been arrested for shoplifting or accused of "willful concealment" in New Hampshire.  

The shoplifting laws in New Hampshire are tough. If you are accused of any type of theft or shoplifting offense it is extremely important you do not say anything, or let them bully you into saying anything. If you are brought into a loss prevention or store security office it is important you do not feel pressured to sign anything. They will most likely try to get you to make any type of admission they can. DO NOT let store security take your picture, they are not the police and cannot make you do anything. You do not even need to give store security, mall security, or loss protection your identification!!!

If you are suspected of shoplifting, either store/mall security or the loss preventions department will call the police. When the cops arrive make sure you are respectful and do not resist arrest OR admit to anything either! Be polite, do not make any statements, and make sure you have some bail money with you.
