If you want to hear a sneaky tale today, you've come to the right place. A teenage boy has been charged after stealing from a liquor store. But this is where the story gets wild: he had already done it a total of 18 times and had stolen almost $20,000 worth of liquor from different Liquor Marts over the span of four months.
But it wasn't until October 8th that he got charged, which is four months after the first known incident. The charged suspect is only 16 years old and he allegedly stole $19,270 over 18 thefts. On a side note, that is a copious amount of alcohol for anyone. For instance, $20,000 of alcohol is roughly equal to 2,000 bottles of wine and that is a ton of alcohol for anyone to drink in just a few months span.
The 16-year-old was arrested by Winnipeg police on Monday morning, October 9th at around 10:40 AM. He was arrested in the 400 block of Banning Street and has been charged with theft and robbery-related offenses, according to CTV News.
According to CTV News, officers said that between June 2018 and September 2018, this teenager would go into different Liquor Marts around Winnipeg and steal alcohol. An employee of Liquor Mart was even allegedly verbally threatened back in July.
The teenager is currently in custody. The officials are still investigating the incident.
