Sad that good people get taken advantage of. Degenerates like Alvarez count on the compassion, tolerance, and benevolence of others to further their personal gain. When we wonder why society seems to become more calloused and cynical, we only need to look at incidents like this for the answer. The store owners expected gratitude and loyalty for dropping the previous charges. All they got in return was more deceit and thievery. Typical.
