A Gravenhurst man’s decision to steal from a grocery store he was already banned from has landed him behind bars.
Last week in Bracebridge, Corey Hynes, 50, was convicted of stealing from the same Gravenhurst grocery store for the second time this year.
Hynes was under court-ordered terms to stay out of the grocery store when police were called by staff to report a shoplifter. Staff had seen Hynes walk out of the store after paying for one item but his backpack was filled with more than $200 in stolen groceries. He was subsequently arrested at a friend’s home without incident.
Court heard that Hynes has been convicted of theft several times, including from the same store.
Hynes had served 20 days in pre-trial custody and he was ordered to serve another four days. He was also sentenced to probation which includes treatment for substances and an order, again, to stay out of the grocery store.
