Competency questioned for candy thief who brought meth to jail
June 07, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Michael Aragon

A 29-year-old man discovered with methamphetamine hidden in his rectum while being booked into the county jail on suspicion of flashing a fake gun to swipe candy from a South San Francisco 7-Eleven may not be mentally fit for trial on second-degree robbery and drug charges.

Michael Daniel Aragon, of Daly City, has pleaded not guilty to the charges but his defense attorney expressed doubts about his competency. Criminal proceedings were put on hold while two court-appointed doctors evaluate Aragon. Those reports are due back July 25.

Competency is a person’s ability to aid in his or her own defense unlike sanity which is the mental state at the time of an alleged crime.

Authorities say Aragon entered the convenience store on El Camino Real early the morning of Feb. 2 and bought some taquitos before leaving. A few minutes later, he reportedly came back and hid two pieces of candy in his pants before trying to leave without paying. When the clerk confronted Aragon, police say he pulled up his shirt to show a weapon that turned out to be a BB handgun and said he had no money.

A second clerk called police but, before they arrived, Aragon purchased some more taquitos before leaving in his car. He was arrested nearby and, during his booking into jail, authorities reported finding a bag of methamphetamine concealed in his rectum.

Aragon is held on $500,000 bail.
