A 27-year-old man is facing several charges after allegedly causing significant damage at two LCBO locations before stealing from another retailer.
London police say the first incident happened around 10:15 a.m. on Monday at the LCBO at 3050 Wonderland Rd. S.
The suspect reportedly used an axe to smash bottles in the store, causing approximately $20K in damage.
No one was injured and the man was arrested nearby.
Then around 4:40 Thursday afternoon, police say the same suspect went to an LCBO at 85 Wellington Rd. where he used a metal pipe to smash multiple windows and threatened staff.
Shortly afterward he reportedly went to another business in the area and allegedly stole multiple items. He was arrested nearby.
As a result of the two incidents, the London man has been charged with:
- two counts of mischief over $5,000
- assault with a weapon
- possession of a weapon dangerous to the public
- uttering threats causing bodily harm
- theft under $5,000
He is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
