A man has been charged after allegedly stealing a television from a Lindsay business on two separate occasions.
According to police, officers were initially contacted on Nov. 26 by staff at a Kent Street retail store after a male suspect was observed removing a 43-inch television from the store.
On Tuesday (Dec. 31), police say the man observed in the store again.
“On this occasion, he selected a 49-inch television and left without paying for it,” reads a media release from police.
“The suspect was approached by an employee in front of the store at which time he fled the area on foot.”
Jody Hallett, 39, has been charged with theft under $5,000.
