I was at the Harewood Arms Pub Liquor store in Nanaimo the other day when I saw this, the biggest anti-shoplifting sign I’ve ever encountered:
This is a liquor store in the neighbourhood of my youth. Harewood is an area of south Nanaimo that used to be a separate municipality. It’s got a very strong sense of community and identity compared to other areas of Nanaimo. When people ask me where I grew up I tend to say “Harewood” before Nanaimo.
Anyways, this particular liquor store is in the corner of Harewood where I grew up. It used to be called “Five Acres” on account of the farms that were there, but now it’s just grouped in with the rest of Harewood.
It was my first visit back to the place where I grew up in years… apparently this particular store has had a lot of problems with shoplifting. This guy, in particular, took a bunch of bottles of gin and other expensive booze.
I am not sure if he’s in custody or not.
Based on his photo who do you think he is? What’s his story? Why do you think he robbed the Harewood arms Liquor Store? I want YOUR comments!
