Candy thief imprisoned 11 years
March 26, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Michael Aragon

A 30-year-old man discovered with methamphetamine hidden in his rectum while being booked into the county jail for flashing a fake gun to swipe candy from a South San Francisco 7-Eleven was sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Michael Daniel Aragon, of Daly City, pleaded no contest the day of jury trial to felony robbery and admitted having prior strikes in return for the flat 11-year term. Prosecutors had sought a 15-year sentence. He has credit of 478 days earned while in custody on $500,000 bail.

Aragon entered the 7-Eleven on El Camino Real the morning of Feb. 2, 2012, 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.
