    You stole someone elses property. You can't steal at UPS big no no. Seriously though, you picked up a random soda on the ground and drank it. Are you homeless?

    If it can be proven the pepsi was part of an interstate shipment, you can be fired and sent to prison for "theft from an interstate shipment" which is a felony.

    Good luck.

    If it goes that far, just say you thought it was the Pepsi you bought earlier. And buy her another Pepsi.

    Has the OP set a precedent?
    If the OP will steal a pepsi...what else will the OP steal?

    Watch your back.

    LP has been known to put little cameras in the trailers and pkg cars to catch thieves.

    Help me understand why anyone would want to pick up a random Pepsi at a UPS facility and drink it. LOL

    Is it really stealing if it never left the facility?

    Under $100 it's a misdemeanor

    That was funny though. :)

    You should bring your coworker a bottle of water and tell them to stop being a snitch.
    If they keep snitching to management... You know what to do.
