A man recently released from prison after serving two years for five shoplifting convictions was arrested on Feb. 29 -- for shoplifting.

According to an article in the Tulsa World, Stacy Gene Bunch, 39, has been accused of stealing $2,385.52 worth of merchandise from six Tulsa stores between Sept. 16 and Nov. 2. The merchandise includes $759.94 worth of tool sets from Ace Hardware and a vacuum cleaner and another item from Home Depot.

Bunch was released from prison Aug. 12. A sixth conviction for shoplifting had Bunch on probation until April.

Jail records list his address as a hotel in Tulsa, according to the newspaper. He was released on $15,000 bond the night of his arrest.
