San Ramon Police Arrest 2 Suspects in Repeat Home Depot Tool Thefts

SAN RAMON (CBS SF) -- Police in San Ramon on Wednesday morning arrested two male suspects in connection with what are believed to be multiple thefts of Home Depot stores across the Bay Area.

Police said the two suspects -- who were not identified -- were arrested for stealing over $3,000 in tools from a San Ramon Home Depot location.

Police said the suspects were currently "on supervised release for previous theft-related convictions."

The first suspect -- a 29-year-old male -- was wearing an ankle monitor when he was arrested and is on parole for weapons and stolen property-related charges. The second suspect -- a 30-year-old male -- is on felony probation for possession of stolen property.

A search of the suspects and their property revealed narcotics, USPS mailbox keys, stolen mail, stolen credit cards and additional tools authorities believe to be stolen.
