What are my rights as a store owner? Posted on May 05, 2011

I am a storeowner, and I deal with a lot of theft. I would want to know, as a private entity, what are we allowed, and not allowed to do in those case. What are the laws about checking customers’ bags when they beep at the door? What should I do if a customer is suspicious? And once a customer has been caught, what are my rights? Am I allowed to charge him for what he stole? Can I charge him double?
