A jobless man was arrested for stealing two cans of spam worth around P350 in a supermarket in Sta. Ana, Manila on Tuesday.
A belated report from the Manila Police District (MPD) identified the suspect as Jose Johnny Guevarra, 42, resident of Malate, Manila.
Investigation showed that the suspect was at Savemore along P. Gil Street in Manila at around 2:05 p.m. on Tuesday.
Police said he took two cans of spam worth P359.50 and hid them in his underwear before trying to leave the area.
But he was caught and authorities retrieved the canned goods.
Guevarra is now under police custody and will face charges for theft or shoplifting, the MPD said.
