In this event, the fire alarm in the store was pulled and, in the ensuing evacuation of the building, a male exited the store with merchandise that had not been purchased.
The store security video provided evidence that led to the identification of a viable suspect.
Thompson was apprehended after Regina police officers responded to a call of a suspicious person in the 1200 block of Pasqua Street.
The caller described a male dressed in dark clothes, peering over fences and going into yards. He was identified and taken into custody without incident.
Subsequent investigation into this individual and his recent activities resulted in numerous charges.
