Who do you plan to sue? Unfortunately, the justice system "worked" here. You were seen picking up items in which I assume law enforcement or whomever filed the complaint reasonably believed you were stealing items from the site (BTW this is very common: people steal tools, wiring, piping, and other items and then "return" them to Home Depot, Lowes and other stores).
You were proven to not be guilty.
If the owner admitted the items were trash and charges were dismissed, what did you spend $800.00 on?
