A grocery selector was terminated after security footage showed he ate one chocolate bar from a damaged box without management approval.

Joe Raimondo, who had worked at the West Mall Grocery Distribution Centre in Toronto since 2004, had no disciplinary infractions on his record, but on Jan. 28, 2017, new security cameras were installed at the Metro Ontario warehouse.

The employer had suspected aisle 42 — where confectionary items were stored in the 874,000-square-foot facility — was an area worth watching due to potential employee theft.
