The store owner's security guards caught up with her.
Hey! Where do you think you're going?
Yes, this is my first time.
No, please don't. They'll get mad and hurt me.
Is this your first offence?
I'm going to take you to your parents.
Then I'll take you to the station and refer you to a youth justice committee. You are being charged with petty theft.
The next day Lucy goes to meet with a social worker.
Yes, I do. I don't know why I did it. My friends had stolen some gum the day before and I wanted to impress them by stealing too. So I took some energy bars, earbuds, and some drinks. My parents are also very absent so i wanted attention.
