Hours After Being Busted For Theft, Police Perplexed To Find Him Doing This

Many criminals do not learn their lesson after being taken in by the authorities and some criminals become repeat offenders even after they have been sentenced. However, a recent story has emerged From Minnesota in March, 2017 detailing the extraordinary blunder of a recently sentenced convict named Alphonso Terry Whitelaw.

The 32-year-old Mr. Whitelaw was spotted entering a Sears clothing store in St. Paul, Minnesota. Employees noticed Mr. Whitelaw slipping into a dressing room with a heap of clothes, including a pair of jeans and a hoodie. Mr. Whitelaw attempted to conceal the clothes by wearing multiple layers and stuffing several items inside his jacket. However, a well-trained employee noticed that Mr. Whitelaw was trying to sneak out of the store without paying for the designer clothes and approached him to stop him from leaving. In response, Mr. Whitelaw reportedly pulled a knife on the diligent employee and hissed “Don’t touch me”.

The authorities were contacted as a result of the incident and they began a preliminary investigation by searching the dressing room in the clothing store. Unbelievably, Mr. Whitehall had left a warrant of commitment relating to a misdemeanor theft charge that he had only received the morning of the incident in Dakota County District Court along with an extensive ‘love letter’ Mr. Whitehall had written to his wife detailing his promise to “put a ring on her finger”. Police were able to rapidly track down and arrest Mr. Whitehall and the employee he threatened has since filed a criminal complaint in the Ramsey County District Court.

The fate of Mr. Whitehall remains unclear, at the time of writing, he had not retained the services of an attorney and was scheduled to appear in Court on the afternoon of 6 March 2017. This is not the first-time Mr. Whitehall has been on the other side of the law with an extensive criminal record, including theft, low-level threats of terrorism, possession of a controlled substance, domestic abuse, check forgery and fleeing a police officer.
