$4 theft brings 15 days in jail

I was checking out the CBC news from Prince Edward Island this morning and found this rather humourous article about a man who was going to spend 15 days in jail for stealing $4 from a charity donation box.

Apparently the guy stole the Children’s Wish Foundation donation box from a gas station but got caught on tape doing so. I guess he was hoping for a huge payoff but instead, he only got $4. I like how Judge Nancy Orr told the guy he was making a $25 donation (the money in his pocket at the time) to the Children’s Wish Foundation.

So for a $4 gain, he’s now out $25 plus he also gets to spend 15 days in jail. Oh well, it’s good to make an example of people from time to time.
