… if they caught you?
And the truth is majority of the times they will.
You may think you have done a small theft, or a big scam, and that your power, position and money will save you. Or running away to another place of residence might do the job. None of it does the job.
‘They’ always catch. It is their business to do so. Their very survival is dependent on catching people who try to run away.
There’s no use of running away if they will eventually catch you. Nay there’s no use of committing a crime at the first place.
