Job Applicant Is Just Who Target Is Looking For
Store staff watches as shoplifter stops to fill out an application for a job, using his real name and contact information.
This is not going to look good on his future resume.
By the time officers arrived, they reported, “the bus was long gone.”
A store security staffer told them that a man had been seen selecting two cans of baby formula and then heading for the customer service counter. When he got there, the cans were no longer in sight.
The man then asked for a job application and sat down for 45 minutes while filling it out. During that time, he set one can of formula on a cart next to him, but the store officer couldn’t tell where he had had it concealed.
When he was done with the application, he walked toward the front door, with the officer watching him. The suspect even asked why he was being watched before going out the door.
He then ran toward the bus, holding onto his pants at the crotch. When he got to the bus, the officer saw him pull the second can of formula out of his pants.
The store officer told police that this was the second time the suspect had filled out a job application there, with the same name and personal information.
Police reviewed video footage and ran the man’s name. Sure enough, he had filled out the second job application under his own name while carrying out a theft from his prospective employer. Police are seeking the 19-year-old Milwaukee man for questioning.
