I've worked retail before and get what you mean, but you have to understand the other side of the coin. Why would theytake down your license plate # if you outright refused to prove that you'd bought what you were walking out with? You refused to prove that you purchased the items, so you're correct, the burden of proof is then on them. They took it upon themselves to gather the information to see if you stole or not, and your unwillingness to help did make you a suspected thief.not

Did they physically detain you? Did they forcibly inspect your belongings? No, so what's wrong with taking your license plate number so they can catch you if you didn't pay for your items? And since you're innocent, what's wrong with them having your license plate number? You authorized them to do so by going on their property.
