Fast-talking thief fools alarm company
A Home Depot in Lexington, Ky., was burglarized by two thieves who managed to convince a security firm representative that they were store workers, according to an article in the Lexington Herald Leader.
The Christmas Eve heist tripped a security alarm, but when a representative of ADT Security Services called the store, one of the burglars answered and said he was a Home Depot employee who went back into the store to retrieve some items accidentally set off the alarm.
ADT sent police after the alarm continued to ring. By then, the two thieves had broken into the store’s safe and escaped with $10,000, according to the newspaper.
