Two Men from Florida Caught Stealing Power Tools Worth More than $34,000!

Two Florida men, who have been arrested for allegedly stealing over $34,000 worth of power tools from multiple Home Depot stores, now face additional charges following their apprehension by the Alpena County Sheriff’s Office. The suspects, whose identities remain undisclosed pending arraignment, have caught the attention of authorities due to their “multiple prior law enforcement encounters.”

The theft incident occurred on Saturday at 3:10 p.m. when the Home Depot in Alpena reported a significant loss of power tools. An employee vigilantly pursued the suspects’ vehicle westbound on M-32 until the area of Indian Reserve Road before discontinuing the pursuit for safety reasons. However, law enforcement eventually intercepted the vehicle near Jacks Landing Road in Green Township, leading to the arrest of both individuals.
