His goal was to steal from stores in all 50 states in a year. He was already at $2 million worth. Must have been working for him.
Too bad he didn't think about using different cards.
The little weekly newspaper has a police blotter, and three out of four weeks, every month, for years, there are multiple arrests at a local home depot for this. They buy a cheap kitchen sink, take out the sink, and stuff the box with power tools, etc.
It's amazing they were able to get away with it for two million dollars worth without getting caught.
