Did he get charged with some of that stuff? Always thought he did do it but never heard he got charged..
edz 3/12/2014 10:38:16 AM Report

he was cited several times for changing the weight of packaged meat and vegetables by algoma health or something. Never charged with fraud, just fined. Charges are for peons.

It doesn't seem like Mr. Pino missed that, the kid was charged. Good Job to Pino Staff in catching this individual.. Stealing is very stupid. We the honest people pay the price. Come on people start reporting these individuals to the law. Step UP!!!
Just Curious 3/12/2014 12:11:34 PM Report

You talking about Ben or the other crook???. He doesn't miss much in that store.. He is always there,no matter when you go,probably why they don't open 24hrs...:)

Mr. Pino is a good example of a good owner, he his always there to protect his business. Way to go Mr. Pino and you have excellent security. Get those low lifes.
Bad Dawg 3/13/2014 12:32:11 AM Report

He knew the kid was ripping him off, Mr Pino took the opportunity to get enough evidence to help the case. I bet the kid will never put pinos name on a resume.
LAWL 3/13/2014 6:39:43 AM Report

Kid is going to end up getting a pair of cement shoes.
Working Man 3/13/2014 7:30:31 PM Report

Poor Mr Pino,

He rips people off like crazy. A box of fish for $13.99; same brand elsewhere sells for $6.99. That is just one example of double pricing. Thanks Ben.

Oh wait, we gotta love the $3.99/lb fresh local boneless skinless chicken right? You know the ones that you have to cut a whole bunch of fat off; and that cup of water that drains out of it every time. That's a lot of weight right there. You know, the fresh chicken that goes bad in the fridge after two days? Buy it Monday, it is bad on Wednesday. Thanks Ben.
