And This Is What It Looks Like When a Dude Steals a Ton of Tools from Home Depot
First there was the jewelry heist; then, the safe boost. Now, courtesy the Dallas Police Department, we're inside the Home Depot on N. Central Expressway and Forest Lane -- from which the man seen in the photo here, and in the video on the other side, schleps "two armloads of weed eaters to his waiting vehicle," per the DPD's heads-up.
This particular weed-wacking took place in the wee small hours of September 22. But, see, DPD's got a repeat offender on its hands: He returned four days later, at 4 a.m., and got out of the very same Home Depot with more than 30 drills, DPD spokesman Sr. Corporal Kevin Janse tells Unfair Park. How'd he gain entry? "He throws a rock through the window," simple as that. And, sure, the alarm goes off. "But he's in and out in less than two minutes," say Janse. Do let DPD know if you recognize the dude or know someone driving a tan, mid-'90s Ford Explorer who's suddenly come into a ton of drills.
