Home Depot Shoplifter Uses Stun Gun To Escape

MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) – Police are looking for a shoplifter who used a stun gun to escape custody from a Manchester, New Hampshire Home Depot back on Oct. 29.

A loss prevention officer at the Home Depot on March Avenue said he saw the suspect hide three lawn mower drive belts under his clothes and attempt to leave the store. The officer chased down the suspect outside the store, and convinced him to come back in.

Once inside, the suspect tried to zap the officer with a stun gun. He missed, but was able to run out of the store and into a waiting Honda Prelude with Massachusetts license plates.

Anyone with information is asked to call Manchester police.
