It seems to me that if I were an identity thief and a shoplifter who was already on probation, I would want to keep a low profile. What I would not want is to be caught doing something silly like, say, being an asshole to store clerks during a pandemic.
Guelph police were first called to a business on Woodlawn Road East near Victoria Road North around 4:45 p.m. on Monday.
They say a man had taken off his mask and was eating a donut inside even though staff were asking him to leave.
Police arrived and arrested the man, but a search of him revealed even more issues that led to charges, according to officials.
The man was reportedly in possession of stolen property that included clothing and groceries as well as unopened mail, several IDs, and credit cards in various names.
The 33-year-old man was charged with five counts of possessing identity documents, three counts of possession of a stolen credit card, three counts of possession of stolen property and breaching probation.
Damn. One more and he would have had a baker’s dozen.
