Couple caught in series of thefts in Forsyth County



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
