According to the Fort Myers Police Department, a man and a woman seen in security images entered the Home Depot at 3402 Forum Blvd. at around 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 4. The unknown duo proceeded to grab a shopping cart and began selecting miscellaneous items to put inside it.
Their first attempt to leave with the unpaid merchandise through the garden exit, at around 2:45 p.m., was unsuccessful. The woman eventually left with the stolen merchandise.
