No Thinking Cap Theft

(Michigan City, IN) - The hat he allegedly stole was not exactly a thinking cap,  given the fact he’s still behind bars. 29-year-old Samuel Cornel of Michigan City was booked into the La Porte County Jail about two weeks ago, accused of going inside a Michigan City gas station in the 1200 block of Franklin Street, grabbing a hat, and running out without paying for it.


The yellow flatbill cap was priced at $8.99.


According to police, an image of Cornell taking the hat resulted in a warrant being issued for his arrest. 


Cornel could face an up to 30-month sentence on a Level 6 Felony charge of Theft.   He is still being held on $755 bond.
