Would-be thief accidentally stole plastic sandwiches

A hungry thief looking for a meal was thwarted when he stole two fake breakfast sandwiches from a convenience store.

The incident happened on Tuesday at about 3 a.m. at the 7-Eleven store at the corner of Nicol and Milton streets in south Nanaimo.

An employee told police a man entered the store and stole two breakfast sandwiches that were actually plastic sales props worth about $70 each. When he realized the sandwiches were fakes, the suspect tossed one across the street and pocketed the other.

Police found the suspect and fake sandwich at a nearby hotel and returned the prop to the store. Since both items were recovered undamaged the store manager opted not to press charges.

I hope those in the picture are not it, because I, too, would have been fooled.
