CUMMING, Ga. — A man took a can of aerosol from the aisle and locked himself inside the bathroom so he could sniff it, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On June 30, employees at Home Depot, 2635 Peachtree Parkway, told deputies a man locked himself in the bathroom with the cans.

When deputies arrived, the man said he was inhaling air duster and handed deputies an empty can.

The suspect said that morning he left a rehabilitation facility.

Deputies called his rehab and personnel reported the man left against their advice and had violated probation.

The man has a warrant out of Habersham County, but officers there said they would not pick him up in Forsyth County. The Home Depot manager did not press charges, so deputies gave the man a ride back to the rehab center.
