Say someone were to go into a Walmart/Target/whatever and find some ROTF toys on the shelves. Knowing they likely won't ring up, they open the toy on the way to the register. They open the toy in eye shot of the cashier, then immediately attempt to pay, making sure the cash/card/whatever method of payment is also clearly visible so there can be no accusations of attempting to steal it. Now the toy is opened, and the opener is attempting to pay, but the toy is ringing up as "Do not Sell" or some such. What is the most likely outcome here? Also, what if they (after opening it) only hand the cashier the box, while keeping the toy in their hands? (Once again, keeping everything clearly visible so no one can say that theft was attempted.) Can the store employees forcefully take it from them if they clearly intend to pay, and the merchandise isn't returnable anyway? Walk me through the various possibilities.
