Candy thief, meth hider competent for trial
July 27, 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 is mentally fit for trial on second-degree robbery and drug charges.

Two court-appointed doctors concluded Michael Daniel Aragon, of Daly City, is able to aid in his own defense and Judge Barbara Mallach reinstated the criminal proceedings that had been on hold pending his evaluation. He returns to court Sept. 16 for jury trial.

On Friday, Aragon also tried firing his court-appointed attorney but was denied.

Authorities say Aragon entered the convenience store on El Camino Real 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.

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.

Aragon remains in custody in lieu of $500,000 bail.
