If you’re going to try to steal stuff from a store, it’s a good idea to make sure your ride is on board with the idea.
Police were called to a shoplifting at Home Depot just before noon Monday. According to reports, store security tried to stop a man who stole some store property.
Apparently, the man didn’t let his friends in on his plan. The suspect ran to a car waiting in the parking lot, but his friends figured out what he was doing and refused to leave or let him in the car, the report said.
The man ran away; his friends cooperated with police.
Investigators ask anyone with information — or the man, if he’d like to turn himself in — to contact them at 668-5550 or 900 N. Palm St., Turlock.
