TORONTO - Don't leave your resume behind at the scene of the crime.

Barrie,. Ont., cops didn't have to look too hard for an alleged shoplifter who was hunting for a job at the same time over the weekend.

The 40-year-old woman was at a Bayfield St. store for a job interview but after meeting the store manager and handing over her resume, the woman was spotted on store security cameras allegedly lifted several items, police said.

She bolted with the items and the store manager, who was in the backroom at the time, called the cops.

Police attended the store and, as they say in their press release, "easily identified the thief using her resume."

Investigators sifting through security footage also found the woman had been in the store the previous day.

Police allege she is on video stealing the clothing that she wore for her job interview.

The unidentified woman has been charged with two counts of theft under $5,000.

"It is unlikely that she will be getting an interview in the near future," police concluded.
