It’s a well-worn path between Walmart and the police station lately, as despite the advertised lowest prices, they’re top targets for shoplifters.
Port Alberni RCMP recently arrested a 30-year old Port Alberni man for his role in at least 8 shoplifting cases, including one where he let off bear spray to avoid arrest.
He’s accused of stealing more than $5000 worth of goods from Walmart and will be in court on November 1st.
Another repeat offender has yet to be collared, and police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a slender man in his early 30’s with short dark hair and a moustache, who’s accused of stealing from Walmart at least a half dozen times.
Photos of the suspect are posted on our facebook page.
