Only if they have probable cause to believe you did it, but you don't have to pay the ticket if they can't prove you did it, and you can sue the people who gave false testimony about you.


But then it would be up to you, to prove they gave false testimony about you.

. . . is a crime. Depending on the value of the items you steal, it can be either a misdemeanor or a felony.

Unless you do it with the express concent of the owners, it's at least trespassing.
