A 30-year-old man was arrested at a Home Depot store in Natick, Mass. for stealing a $524 welder, according to an article in the Metro West Daily News.
Store security apprehended Brandon Wood, a student at UMass-Boston, on July 13 after he loaded the welder into a cart. They told police they recognized him as someone who had stole the same welder the week before but had evaded loss personnel officers.
Wood was charged with two counts of larceny of property worth more than $250. Prosecutors claimed he had two open shoplifting cases in Springfield County Court.
The suspect’s bail was set at $500.
