I was held by LP officer for shoplifting. They called the police but they had not shown up and had been held for 4 hours at that point so I was let go. It was my first offense but am I to expect the police to come to my home and arrest me?

You can still be charged. The statute of limitations on shoplifting is measured in years, not hours. Stop talking about your case on line and find a lawyer.

If they have told you to stay away, that does not expire (unless they gave you an order that says otherwise).

 Question:Is it safe to re-enter a store after being caught shoplifting and given trespass?
When I got caught shoplifting, they got my picture obviously. I was then told to leave and that I was no longer allowed on the premises. No police were involved that I know of. It has been nearly three weeks now, so i doubt anything will come of this. Is it ever safe to return to that store, even after waiting a year or so?

 Criminal Defense Lawyer, R. Christopher Simons answer:
It is not safe. The tresspass warning is valid until removed. You will have to get permission from the store owner or manager to go back on the property.
