Shoplifter Violates Court Order


A 36 year old female from Sarnia was recently arrested for Theft and also charged with Drug Possession and Breaching Court Orders. On July 14th, 2017 at approximately 9pm, Sarnia Police were called to a business in the 1400 block of Quinn Drive in regards to a suspicious female in the store. The attending officer assisted store security and maintained a watchful eye on the suspect who was observed selecting an unusual amount of electronics. With a shopping cart full of merchandise, she began stuffing the items into three separate shopping bags, (two of which were lined with tinfoil) and then made her way towards a side exit that was closed off. She was then observed exiting through a fire door into the parking lot with the unpaid merchandise where she was confronted and placed under arrest for Theft Under $5000. At this time the officer recognized the female and realized she had been wearing a wig in an attempt to hide her identity. A subsequent search revealed the accused was also in possession of 0.5mg of methamphetamine and two 3mg capsules of hydromorphone. The total amount of goods taken from the store was over $1300. Joyce Elizabeth Helen Leveille is also charged with Breach of Recognizance, two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance and three counts of Breach of Probation. She was held for a bail hearing.
