BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – An Oakland County man who has been arrested more than 90 times over the past couple decades just added another notch to his belt.
Bloomfield Township Police say 44-year-old Ryan Krych, of Highland, was arrested Tuesday after stealing $59 worth of items from a Rite-Aid store. His blood alcohol content was also almost four times the legal limit, according to police.
Police responded to the store, on Woodward Avenue at Square Lake Road, around 8:45 p.m. to check the welfare of an intoxicated man — later identified as Krych — who had been wandering in and out of the store throughout the night. Officers found him at a gas station across the street with unpaid merchandise in his pockets, including a radio, fitness tracker and batteries. At that point, Krych was placed under arrest for retail fraud.
Because his blood alcohol level was so high, .307, police say doctors at St. Joseph Oakland medically cleared Krych before he was taken to the police station. He is currently being held at the Oakland County Jail on a $100,000 bond, and is due back in court on October 25.
Krych has been arrested over 90 times in the past 20 years for different offenses that include disorderly conduct and other retail frauds.
