Mis-marked items at the supermarket- is it a crime?

Scargod | Oct 15, 2008 07:35 AM

Yesterday I went to my Stop n Shop that offers DIY scanning as you shop. I was looking for veal or lamb shanks when an old codger said, "look at the pricing on these! Surely, if you buy them, they will catch the mistake at the register."
They were marked at 2.5 cents a pound! I took three packages, equalling six cents for 2-1/2 pounds of lamb chops, and scanned them myself. During the checkout process the guard/helper at the self-service area even gave me fifteen cents credit because I was shopping with reusable bags!
I don't feel very guilty of a crime. Should I?
