    My 21-year-old son was shopping in BCF last week. He opened a box to look at a head lamp. A pack of 4 A3 batteries fell out. As his hands were full he put them in his pocket and forgot to put them back in. He paid for the stuff he'd bought and came home. Next thing we have the cops at our door. BCF want to charge him for shoplifting.

    What happens now?

    He has never been in trouble with the law. He has also spent thousands of dollars in BCF. We are in shock we don't know what to do.

    When did your son discover the batteries? Why didn't he return them?
