Couple caught in series of thefts in Forsyth County

August 12, 2013
CUMMING, Ga. — A Home Depot investigator compiled enough evidence to prove a couple committed a series of fraudulent returns, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

On July 24, a Home Depot loss prevention investigator told officers she had evidence of a couple fraudulently returning items to several Home Depot locations, including the Cumming location, 1000 Market Place Boulevard.

The investigator said video surveillance shows the couple in a theft where they returned stolen items and received store gift cards in exchange. The investigator said the gift cards would then be presumably sold to pawn shops in the area.

The investigator said the couple altered their driver's license to bypass Home Depot's tracking system.

The thefts from the Cumming store from November 2011 to June 2013 totaled about $7,300

    What were their names?

    In regards to the "couple" charged(?) in the alleged crime, wouldn't it be a good thing to publish their names? When people steal from stores, it drives up the prices for the rest of us, so I think it's only fair to tell the public who these people are. Notice I used the word "alleged" since they have not been found guilty as of yet, but from your story, it appears that will happen soon. I would assume if someone alters their drivers license, it's not because they wish to hide their weight or eye color...am I right?
