Man sentenced for stealing sex toys from Youngstown adult store

Todd Thornton

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A man who police say made off with a bag full of sex toys from an adult store was sentenced to 60 days in jail on Wednesday.

Todd Thornton will receive credit for 17 days served in jail. He was also ordered to pay a fine of $200, plus court costs.

Thornton was arrested earlier this month after a reported theft at Adult Mart on Market Street.

A clerk, described in a police report as a romance specialist, told police that Thornton asked where several items were located in the store and left with an armful of them without paying.

Items taken included DVDs, sexual enhancement devices, ointments, over 50 magazines and other items.

When Thornton was arrested, police said he had a bag full of the reported items, as well as a set of brass knuckles in his pocket.
