The afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 16, Trail police responded to a report that $1,600 worth of perfume had been stolen from a downtown business on Cedar Avenue.
The officer reviewed surveillance video footage that allegedly depicted a 36-year-old Trail man stealing several bottles of perfume from a store shelf on three separate occasions.
Another officer located the man in a downtown Trail alley. The officer arrested the man for theft under $5,000.
He was released at the scene with a condition not to go into the store.
Three counts of theft under $5,000 are being forwarded to Crown counsel, according to the Trail RCMP. The alleged perpetrator is slated for his first appearance in the Rossland courthouse on Dec. 7.
