Question: Can I be arrested for petty theft if it was an employee of the store, NOT a police officer that stopped me? I have a Petty theft case coming up at Airport court in Los Angeles next month.

Answer: Yes. It is not required that a police officer initially stop you when being cited and/or arrested for PPC 484 Petty Theft. There may be other options and defenses applicable to your petty theft case though. Call me to discuss your petty theft case further?
