BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (USA TODAY) — A 44-year-old Michigan man who has been arrested more than 90 times in the last 20 years was arrested again this week.
On Tuesday, Bloomfield Township Police were called to a Rite Aid store to check on the welfare of an intoxicated man who had been wandering in and out of the store throughout the night.
Officers found the man, identified as Ryan Krych, of Highland, Mich., at a gas station across the street. He had nearly $60 worth of Rite Aid merchandise in his pockets, including a radio, fit tracker and batteries. Police said their investigation showed Krych did not pay for any of the items.
Krych was arrested on a shoplifting charge, but first police took him to the hospital because his blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit.
Detective Sgt. John Weise said Krych has been in and out of jail over the last two decades for a litany of minor offenses.
“Drug, alcohol, disorderly conduct — you name it,” said Weise.
Krych was arraigned Wednesday on the misdemeanor retail fraud charge. He was issued a $100,000 bond because of his previous arrests. He is scheduled to appear in court for a pretrial hearing Oct. 25.
