im an absolute idiot and I put a 2 dollar bottle of liquid latex in my bag because I was holding things and browsing, after about 10 mins i went up to the register and paid for a bottle of glitter that I needed. once i got home i went thru my bags and realised i hadn't paid for the latex and I felt absolutely terrible as I genuinely didn't mean to take it without paying. i then emailed them explaining what had happened and if i could somehow pay them back electronically as i wont be back to those shops for a while. can i get charged/arrested for this in Queensland?
