The New Entrepreneurs

Who says kids today don't have any drive or ambition?

Toronto police have cracked a shoplifting ring that used diversions to steal tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from LCBO and big box stores.

Since May, ring members have allegedly stolen $25,000 worth of alcohol, such as cognac and scotch, from LCBO stores across southern Ontario.

They are alleged to have stolen computers, lotions and about $1,400 worth of bubble gum from big box stores, such as Staples, Home Depot, grocery stores and pharmacies.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"It gets better. It seems that the alleged ringleader, a certain Kathleen Barry, was already on bail for an October 8th shoplifting arrest, which she committed while on parole for an even earlier conviction for thefts dating back to 2005 -- a conviction that netted her 75 days to be served on week-ends."

Well, she got the message loud and clear from every judge she's been in front of: carry on, as you were. Will she get bail again?

The cops and prosecutors must wonder why they even bother to show up.
