Three Arrested after Allegedly Stealing More Than $35,000 from Retailers

Three people in Louisiana have been arrested for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars worth of high-end lawn equipment from Home Depot. Officials with EBRSO say on April 1, they were contacted by an employee at Home Depot about two men and one woman stealing from multiple store locations in the parish.

Detectives were able to immediately recognize the suspects because they worked multiple cases involving them in the past. Detectives were told the suspects stole multiple pieces of high-end lawn equipment (edgers, leaf blowers, pressure washers, trimmers, etc.).

In the report, it says the employee reported the suspects were using a U-Haul and had traveled from Lake Charles to Hammond stealing equipment. The report goes on to say detectives spoke with a manager at a Lowe’s, who said the same suspects stolen lawn equipment from that store as well.
