Officers from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are hoping members of the community can help them find a man accused of repeatedly stealing from home improvement stores in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area.
Officer Blake Page from the CMPD spoke to WBTV about the investigation in an interview Tuesday. “I’m here to really ask the community for help,” explained Page. “There’s a guy by the name of Aaron Bradley. He’s 32 years old and he’s got a problem with stealing stuff from home improvement stores.”
Page said that on several different occasions store surveillance cameras have recorded Aaron Bradley walking into businesses, taking items, and walking out without paying. The suspect has not tried to conceal his identity during the thefts.
“Most of the time, people take stuff, and conceal it before they walk out of the store. No, this guy is carrying boxes, boxes in both arms before he walks out of the store,” said Page.
Surveillance footage from one recent theft shows a man believed to be Bradley walking into a Home Depot off South Blvd in Charlotte. The video shows Bradley walk down an aisle, pick up an item and walk out of the store without paying for the item.
“He’s done it 12 times as far as we know. He could be continuing to do it now and until we are able to arrest him and take him to jail, he might keep doing it,” said Page… WBTV3 News
