A teenager who wore the shirt and tie that a Toronto cop bought for him after he allegedly attempted to steal them for a job interview has been hired. Earlier this month Const. Niran Jeyanesan responded to a shoplifting call. He found an 18-year-old who had allegedly attempted to make off with a long-sleeved shirt, a tie and a pair of socks. He told the officers they were meant for a job interview. Jeyanesan decided to purchase the shirt and tie for the teenager. Late last week the teen called Jeyanesan and let him know that the outfit worked — he landed the position and starts work on Monday.
