Deputies: While stealing from Sears, man found unconscious in bathroom

PORT RICHEY — Deputies say they found John Peter Kanaris in a Sears bathroom, surrounded with price tags and covered in blood.

On Saturday evening, Kanaris went into the store at 9409 U.S. 19 and used a box cutter to take the labels off several items, a Pasco Sheriff's Office report states.

In doing so, he cut himself. He put the items, not specified in the report, into his pockets and retreated to the store's bathroom.

A security guard later found Kanaris, 31, in the bathroom passed out. It was unclear whether he lost consciousness from blood loss.

Deputies searched Kanaris and found the stolen items, along with a Xanax pill and a gram of marijuana, in his pockets, the report states.

Kanaris, of 12626 Parkwood St. in Hudson, was arrested on a charges of petty theft, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana under 20 grams. He was released from the Land O'Lakes jail Sunday on $2,300 bail.
