Shoplifter in Distinctive Shirt Pleads Guilty

A shoplifter who was spotted in one store in his distinctive shirt has pleaded guilty to three of his charges and has two dismissed Friday.

Police said John Hunt was wearing a blue shirt printed with “I pooped today” in one of his shoplifting incidents. However, that charge was dismissed in 30th District Court, as well as a shoplifting charge at a Walmart.

For two other Walmart shoplifting charges and a criminal mischief charge involving theft of electricity at a meter, he received 9 months in state jail.
