An Oakland Park man was arrested after allegedly stealing more than $17,000 worth of power tools from at least 11 Home Depot stores in Broward County.
Alain Carre, 39, was arrested in Lauderdale Lakes on Feb. 25 by the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s Burglary Apprehension Team (B.A.T) alongside the Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale Police Departments.
Carre was wanted for thefts at Home Depot stores in Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, North Lauderdale and Sunrise, according to a BSO press release. But he’s also wanted outside of Broward County — there is a warrant for his arrest in Palm Beach County and two pending cases against him in North Miami.
Carre stole more than $17,000 worth of power tools — mainly Milwaukee brand tools — during at least 11 thefts at different Home Depot stores, according to BSO. On the agency’s website, there are 19 charges against him, including attempting to elude law enforcement, resisting arrest, driving without a driver’s license, grand and petit theft.
He is currently being held at Broward County’s Main Jail.
