Convictions for shoplifting, alcohol offences

Houle was arrested at the Canadian Tire store in High Level on September 11 for stealing socket wrenches.
Later, he was arrested in Peace River several times for intoxication in public.
Defence counsel said the socket wrenches were returned,which is a mitigating factor, and suggested time served and probation.
