A Toronto police officer called to the scene of a shoplifting is being commended, not for arresting the man, but for letting him go.
When the officer learned the young man had tried to steal a shirt, tie, and socks for a job interview, he decided to help him out.
Not only did Const. Niran Jeyanesan let the man go, he used his own money to pay for the clothes the man had tried to steal.
Jeyanesan told CP24 that he and his partner were called to a Walmart in the city’s north end on Sunday evening for a reported theft.
