Thief Who Left ID Behind Is Sentenced To Jail

James Lucci left his driver's license behind while trying to return stolen suits for store credit

A man who left his driver's license behind while trying to rip off a department store has pleaded guilty to theft and was sentenced to six months in jail.

James Lucci, 24, of Willougby, tried to return some stolen suits for store credit Thursday to the JC Penney in the Great Lakes Mall, according to the Mentor Police Department Facebook page.

When a security guard approached him, Lucci ran away. However, he left his ID behind.

Mentor Police officers soon arrested Lucci on the west end of the mall.

Lucci pleaded guilty to theft Friday in Mentor Municipal Court and Acting Judge Jeff McGaffick sentenced him to six months in jail.

Lucci has been convicted of theft twice before in Mentor Municipal Court -- once in 2008 and again in May of 2012, according to online court records.

THAT YOUNG MAN YOU'RE CALLING A LOSER IS MY BROTHER! YES HIS ACTIONS ARE WRONG BUT HE HAS A GOOD HEART!! HIS LIFESTYLE NEEDS TO CHANGE & HE NEEDS POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT, NOT SOME HEARTLESS IDIOT LIKE YOU TELLING HIM HE'S A LOSER! DO I SENSE SOME SELF INSECURITIES? THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE IF PEOPLE WOULD DO MORE POSITIVE MENTORING RATHER THAN NEGATIVE !
