You wanted clearer pictures? You got it thanks to Home Depot.
The couple below went to Home Depot (2000 8th St NW) in Winter Haven and utilized a Home Depot credit card (that was not theirs by the way) to the tune of $2,354. It just so happens that our victim was in an Auburndale restaurant the day before when the wallet was left behind. Unfortunately, no video was available from the restaurant. However, this couple figured some home remodel was in the cards for them at the victim’s expense. (And the female had to drag the poor Toy Story characters into her dastardly deed) 🙁
