Alexandria Police investigate Home Depot Robbery

Alexandria Police are investigating a robbery committed by five people at the Home Depot at 400 S. Pickett Street in the West End.

A Home Depot employee followed five people out of the store on Jan. 17, after they walked past the point of sale and out the exit with a shopping cart full of hand tools, gardening tools, and electric and gas-powered tools, according to a search warrant.

The suspects fled the scene in two vehicles with Maryland plates — a gray Honda CRV and a dark blue Nissan Maxima.

“(A)n employee of the Home Depot… attempted to grab the shopping cart full of items that was being pushed by one of the suspects,” police said in the search warrant. “The suspect pushed (the employee) and they began to struggle. (The employee) disengaged when a second suspect exited the Nissan Maxima. Those two suspects grabbed one item each and left the scene.”

The previous day, on Jan. 16, the owner of the Honda CRV reported that it was stolen from Prince Georges County. The Honda CRV was pulled over during a traffic stop in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 30, and the driver, who did not have a key fob for CRV, was arrested for vehicle theft.
