Suspect Smashes Store LP Associate’s Head Through Wall

A Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) loss prevention associate is nursing a laceration over his eye after having his head smashed through a glass wall by a shoplifter, report Kingston Police in Ontario, Canada. Police said in a news release that last Thursday a man went into a LCBO on Princess Street at about 5 p.m. The man hid bottles of whisky and vodka in his pants before trying to leave the store without paying. He was stopped at the exit by two loss prevention associates and was directed to take the merchandise from his pants. The man refused. During a physical struggle the man grabbed one of the loss-prevention asssociates and smashed his head through the wall. A customer stepped in to help restrain the man and police were called. The 26-year-old man has been charged with theft, assault, and breaching his probation. He spent the night in police custody to attend bail court on Friday. The LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) is an Ontario government enterprise and one of the world’s largest buyers and retailers of beverage alcohol. Through more than 650 retail stores, catalogues, special order services and more than 210 agency stores, which provide cost effective, convenient and socially responsible access for rural consumers, the LCBO offers nearly 24,000 products annually to consumers and licensed establishments from more than 80 countries.  [Source: The Whig]
