I'm the man that they tried to pin the shoplifting charge on. Guess what, I'm not the guy who ran in and stole the playstation... also i was found "not guilty" of trying to steal a blue tooth device, or a dvd. neither of which i took into a restroom with me. I think that the cops were coaxed into taking me in because the manager needed to catch someone because his job was on the line for product loss. Also. I work in the same mall and that general manager.. before i was even arrested for something i didn't do went next door to my place of employment, where i had just gotten off work and made a tremendous scene saying that i was a thief and that i was to be fired immediately. This craziness almost cost me my job and also cost me bail money was really dehumanizing and extremely unnecessary. My wife who also works next door to best buy with me and serves these employees and that same manager there all the time as a guest in our restaurant used to shop there pretty much every day after work. Not anymore. Best Buy used to have us both as loyal customers but they ruined this. BIG TIME.
