Prolific Shoplifter Gets 4-Year Sentence After 1000-Plus Thefts: “We Build Prisons for People Like Him”

Detectives have nicknamed him the “Hamburglar.”




A man called Barry Sanders was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to a felony theft charge, his latest crime in a career of shoplifting that includes more than 1000 such instances in the Portland, OR area, the KGW8 news station reports.

This is not the first time the 60-year-old Sanders has been caught. He has previously admitted in court papers to being a “talented, professional thief” and has also admitted to violating his probation after agreeing to stay out of Portland-area stores including Fred Meyer, Safeway, Target and Home Depot, according to the article.

Detectives have nicknamed Sanders the “Hamburglar” due to his proclivity for stealing meat and seafood.
