CORNER BROOK Police say a youth they picked up on the street in downtown Corner Brook early Saturday morning was responsible for a shoplifting complaint from a liquor store in late August.
Patrol officers with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary located the boy, whose age was not given, at around 2 a.m. He was known to police and was known to have been placed under court-ordered restrictions.
As a result, he was charged with four breaches of his youth probation conditions.
He was also identified as the alleged suspect in a theft reported at a Corner Brook liquor store, which the RNC has been investigating since Aug. 27. He was charged with theft under $5,000 in relation to that and two more breaches of probation.
He has been released to the custody of a parent.
