We all scream for ice cream, even alleged thieves.
A suspect stole $40 worth of ice cream from the 7-Eleven on Nicol Street yesterday.
“It’s a great day for ice cream, but you still have to pay for it,” noted Nanaimo Crime Stoppers in a Tweet yesterday.
According to an e-mail from Nanaimo RCMP, the incident happened Wednesday at about 8:45 a.m.
The suspect entered the store, “began stuffing ice cream tubs into the red bag he was carrying,” then ran out.
He is described as a First Nations man and at the time of the incident, he was wearing a grey shirt, dark-coloured pants and his red bag had Budweiser branding.
