A man with more than 90 arrests on his record ended up behind bars again this week after allegedly stealing from a Rite-Aid, Bloomfield Township police said.

Officers were called to the business in the 42000 block of Woodward at 8:45 p.m. Tuesday “to check the welfare of an intoxicated man who had been wandering in and out of the store throughout the night,” investigators said in a statement.

Police then found the man, identified as Ryan Krych, 44, at a gas station across the street allegedly with $59 worth of store merchandise in his pockets, according to the release.

“The investigation showed that Krych did not pay for any of the items that included a radio, a fit tracker and batteries,” the notice said.

Officers arrested the Highland Township man for retail fraud. But because of his high blood-alcohol level, 0.307, doctors at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland hospital had to clear him before he was taken to the police station, authorities said.

It wasn’t his first brush with the law.

“Krych has been arrested over 90 times in the past 20 years for different offenses that include disorderly conduct and other retail frauds,” police said Thursday.

He was arraigned before Magistrate Peter Mansour at 48th District Court in Bloomfield Hills and held at the Oakland County Jail on a $100,000 bond. His next court date is scheduled for Oct. 25.
