Delaware State Police seek man in thefts at 2 Home Depots
CLAYMONT, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say a man has stolen from two Home Depots in one day.
Police tell news outlets in a statement they are searching for a man suspected in an armed robbery Saturday morning at a Home Depot in Claymont. Investigators determined the same man was shoplifting at another Home Depot in Wilmington roughly two hours before.
Police say that around 9 a.m., the man took landscaping power tools from the store in Claymont and left without paying. The man told an employee who confronted him in the parking lot to stay away and that he had a knife.
The employee told police that he saw what he thought was a knife in the man’s pocket. The employee was not hurt and the man fled on foot.
