Christopher James McLean pleaded guilty in provincial court in Charlottetown recently to a string of thefts.
His first conviction is for stealing a pair of Nike sneakers, priced at $87.99, from Sportchek in Charlottetown on Dec. 10. Later that day in the capital city, he stole a notebook tablet from Easyhome.
On Jan. 5, he turned his attention to a person’s residence, nabbing a bank card and a gift card. One day later, he stole numerous items from Canadian Tire, failing to pay a penny towards the haul’s total value of $1,257.36.
After that, McLean stole an item worth $17.24 from Wild Impulse in Charlottetown.
On Feb. 11, he walked out of Golden Fox Home Décor with two pieces of jewelry valued at $36, again making no attempt to pay.
The next day, he shoplifted $366.98 worth of items from Shoppers Drug Mart on University Avenue.
One day later, he was nabbing tools and other items from a work truck parked on Lower Malpeque Road. The owner is looking for $2,000 in restitution for the stolen goods.
McLean returned to Canadian Tire on May 16, swapping the motorcycle helmet he carried into the store for a brand new one priced at $144.49.
McLean, who has a criminal record spanning 24 pages, was not sentenced at the time because there were no beds available in prison. He will be sentenced on July 21.
