A man with 22 traffic warrants and 25 suspensions on his driver’s license was arrested for shoplifting at a Lowe’s home improvement store in Michigan, according to an article in the Livingston Daily.
Sheriff deputies were called to a Lowe’s store in Genoa Township on March 8 after a 50-year-old male filled his shopping cart with three vacuums, six backpack blowers and four chain saws. The suspect, who was not named, then disabled an alarm and destroyed the handles on an emergency exit door, according to police. He allegedly left the store with the merchandise, which was valued at approximately $4,600.
Authorities apprehended the suspect, who faces charges in Detroit for 22 traffic warrants. His license has expired with 25 suspensions, police said.
The man is believed to have also stolen from the Woodhaven Lowe's store, according to authorities.
