Man Who Stole 41 Tubs Of Oil Of Olay Gets 27 Months In Prison

Mayor (inset) is scheduled to be paroled in December
A 27-year-old North Center man has been sentenced to 27 months in prison for shoplifting $1,097 worth of Oil of Olay in Lakeview last year.

William E. Mayor was detained as he tried to walk out of Mariano's at 3030 North Broadway with 41 boxes of the beauty cream in late November, police said. He was on parole at the time after serving ten months of a 2-year narcotics sentence, according to state records.

Mariano’s security told police that Mayor “has done this before,” but we could find no record of Mayor being arrested at that location, which had its grand opening last summer.

If all goes well, Mayor will be paroled on December 22, just in time for the holiday shoplifting season.

Meanwhile…

Wells (inset) is charged with stealing 29 tasty Butterfingers.
In other shoplifting news, a Wicker Park man is facing charges for trying to take 29 Butterfingers from a Boystown gas station, according to court records.

Wynton Wells, 47, was arrested as he tried to walk out of the Circe K gas station with the candy, valued at $40.08, on March 28, prosecutors said.

Wells has a long criminal history that includes 94 separate court cases in Cook County since the late 1980’s. Over the years, Wells has been sentenced to prison twice for shoplifting and once for possessing a stolen motor vehicle, according to court files.

  1. Maybe he could trade the Oil of Ole for some Butterfingers then both of them would look lovely.

  2. Steal from lotion from a large store chain and you get 2 years. Violently batter and rob a person and you get probation. I see the Chicago justice system has its priorities straight.

    1. Seriously, add an illegal gun to the probation list, but Oil of Olay, hammer time.

    2. Steal from a store and you'll never get a job at one. Murder? They'll hire you after you serve your time.

    3. Just as Oil of Olay will take years off your skin, the Chicago justice system will take months off his sentence.

  3. Both of them should be committed. Mentally

  4. The Oil of Olay guy has a history of pilfering expensive items in my store as well.(It's against company policy to speak publicly on behalf of my company,so I'll let the name remain a mystery)
    Regardless, these type of products generally have a high ticket price, so they will come in and rake the entire shelf into their bag and poof...they're gone.

    1. This is his second arrest for shoplifting expensive items. He's also been arrested twice for drugs. He gets arrested roughly once a year.

    2. Um, er, well, ahem.....we kinda figured that out. I mean how many times have they come in and swiped an entire shelf of paper napkins?

  5. Doesn't matter, crime is a crime, shoplifting or robbery, assault, or drugs, it all causes violence or mayhem or connected to one another, instead of saying some should be less penalty or that's not serious or this is, I think it should all be prosecuted, and held accountable. Average reader on this blog probably hasn't even gotten a traffic ticket,so, let's give us readers more credit for being good, instead of being lenient when we hear a dramatic Oil of Olay story by some comments. Besides lets be serious, its says 27 months, but check back and he will be out by the end of the year like stated above, a victim is a victim, lets not make light of that. Crime is encouraged in this Cook County's system, not frowned upon, if it was up to me rapers and murderers would have a quick public hanging to send messages to others

  6. Here's a sad fact, William --
    You need to get yourself a better suntan, get a handgun, and rob actual, live, people. Then Toni and Kim and Tom Dart and most of the Chicago judiciary will ride to your rescue. Probation. At worst.

    1. It's true, his skin looks fabulous. Might have made the judge just a little jealous. Anyone who wears a robe is usually somewhat vain.
