What do I mark on a job application because of shoplifting?

So on a job application I have the question "Have you ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, other than traffic violation? (Note: A DUI is not a minor traffic violation)"

I either mark yes or no.

Last December I was arrested for shoplifting and fined in court with 800. That was all that happened, no community service or anything. Should I mark yes or no?

Also, I'm 18 and this is in Arizona.

This is my first time getting in trouble with the law.

    you should be honest and say yes, because if you mark no they will know you lied by pulling out your record.
