Theft and Mischief while shopping

1. Is it a Theft if I while I am in a store, I see an item I need in someone else's shopping cart and there are no more items on the shelf, what if I "steal" the merchandise out of the other person's shoppers cart (and pay for it at check out) - is that a Theft? Like. does a shopper have a property interest in the items he places in his cart that can impose criminal or civil liability?

2. I am upset with a certain supermarket. Am I committing a crime by filling up my shopping cart with icecream and letting it melt as I stroll around the store, and when I exit the store, I leave the cart full of melting icecream in the isles? Is that Mischief to property? Can I be sued for damages in Small CLaims Court?
