The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is trying to track down thieves who were busy stuffing merchandise into a large box last Tuesday at the Home Depot on Market Street in Carson City. The two suspects placed a large amount of power tools inside a bathtub box. The suspects paid for the bathtub and left the store. They placed the bathtub box on the roof of an unlicensed, dark early 2000s model Ford Escape and quickly drove away as marked patrol units moved in to stop them.
The Ford swerved around the patrol units, causing the bathtub box to fall off the Ford along with a quantity of stolen power tools they were hiding at the bottom of the box
Deputies pursued the vehicle as it roared south on Roop. Deputies decided to stop the pursuit after the Ford reached unsafe speeds, endangering the public.
They said the two suspect previously attempted to steal merchandise from the Spanish Springs Home Depot in Sparks earlier that day.
Anyone with any information on the case is urged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at (775) 887-2677 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900. You will remain anonymous. A $500 reward is being offered.
