BARRIE, Ontario (CBS/WTSP) If you're going to steal from a store, it's probably best not to leave your resume behind.

Police in Canada say an accused shoplifter made it easy to find her after stealing from a store in Barrie, Ontario.

She left a job application behind.

According to the London Free Press, the 40-year-old woman met with the store manager for a job interview. After handing over her resume, the woman was seen on store security cameras stealing several items.

She ran out of the store, but, according to the paper, police "easily identified" her through her resume.

After checking the store's security tapes, police noticed the woman had been in the store the day before her job interview and stole several other items.

In fact, police say she was caught on tape stealing the very clothes she wore to the interview.

The London Free Press reports that the unidentified woman has been charged with two counts of theft under $5,000.

Does shoplifting go under "activities" or "experience" on a resume?
