(Bridgeport, CT – July 2, 2013) – John Fisher, 24, also had a suspended driver’s license.
Officers Sarah Nestlen, Jose Luna and Michael Taylor were called to the Home Depot Sunday on a reported shoplifting. A loss prevention associate stated that he observed Fisher, of Derby, load a Dewalt Hammerdrill into a shopping cart and push it towards the exit.
He then lifted it out of the carriage and attempted to walk out the store.
The employee detained him and, after a scuffle, took him to the ground and handcuffed him.
Fisher was charged with sixth-degree larceny for the shoplifting. Later, it was determined that he had driven a stolen Hyundai to the store. He faces additional charges of second-degree larceny and operating with a suspended license.
