Canadian cop buys jobseeker suit he was stealing for job interview

A shoplifter in Toronto, Canada, caught stealing an outfit for a job interview was given a second chance by the arresting police officer, who then bought the outfit for him.

Canadian TV channel CP24 reports that Walmart staff apprehended an 18-year-old for attempting to steal a dress shirt, tie and socks. On arrival at the scene, constable Niran Jeyanesan found out the offender had been stealing the items for a job interview.

The officer then decided to release him and purchase the items for him, telling CP24: “This young person has been facing his own difficulties in life and he was looking to straighten out all that by providing for his family and trying to get a job.

“This individual didn't have any resources. He wanted to go get that job. That was in his mind. I think he truly made a mistake.”
