Const. Niran Jeyanesan was called to a Walmart on Jane St Sunday night for a reported theft. When him and his partner arrived, the loss prevention officer had apprehended an 18-year-old man  for shoplifting a dress shirt, tie and pair of socks.


When the young man was question about the crime, Jeyanesan realized that he needed the outfit for an upcoming job interview.


The individual was released without charge and Jeyanesan purchased the shirt and tie himself to give to the young man.


Jeyanesan said he wanted to give the young man a second chance to get his life on track and provide for his family and saw an opportunity to help someone who was trying to do just that.
