    CANADA - Toronto - Fresh breath bandit

    In bizarre crime news...


    #FreshBreathBandit accused of stealing $1500 worth of gum


    A suspect dubbed the #FreshBreathBandit by York Regional Police is accused of stealing over $1,500 in chewing gum from a Markham-area convenience store last December.
    He then simply walks out of the door with the bag, but re-appears a few moments later with another empty bag and repeats the drill. York Regional Police said that the taxi he took to the store was waiting outside for him—he may have loaded both bags into the backseat and been driven away.

    ‘Fresh-breath bandit’ makes off with more than $1,500 worth of chewing gum from Markham pharmacy

    York Regional Police are in a sticky situation and need the public’s help to identify a man who stole more than $1,500 worth of chewing gum from a Markham, Ont., pharmacy.

    The man was captured by video surveillance entering a pharmacy on Dec. 17 with a garbage bag, filling it up with gum and casually walking out the front door. Police said he returned a few moments later with another garbage bag and stole the pharmacy’s remaining stock.


    The suspect is described as a brown male between 40 and 50 years old with a medium build. He has a salt-and-pepper beard and was seen wearing a blue jacket, blue jeans and a blue cap.

    How freaky, it sounds like he's got some kind of gum addiction.

    This is so weird! I wonder if gum packets could be used to smuggle drugs or something? I can't think why else you'd want so much gum!

    Hmmm.

    Who's chewing up all that stolen gum?

    Could the recent theft of big quantities of chewing gum from area businesses be linked to global organized crime?

    Police in Windsor and Essex County are investigating several large-scale store thefts of chewing gum.

    This week, Kingsville OPP reported 235 multi-packs of gum had been lifted off the shelves of The Bargain! Store on Division Street around March 23 to 25.
