Aspen Hill Home Depot employees assaulted by knife-wielding shoplifter

America has experienced a criminal fad of stealing copper wire from buildings. One thief cut to the chase around 3:40 PM on December 2, stealing brand new copper wire from the Home Depot in Aspen Hill. The suspect allegedly shoplifted a large spool of the wire from inside the store, then attempted to hide the spool in nearby trees while he retrieved his car.

As the suspect walked to his black Toyota RAV4, two Home Depot employees who were aware of the theft attempted to retrieve the spool. The suspect quickly reappeared, and allegedly pulled a knife on the employees, shouting, "That's mine!" He then grabbed the spool, got into his vehicle, and drove away.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect or this theft and first-degree assault is asked to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5100.  Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).  Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest in this case.

      Do you refer to all crime and fire stories as "press releases" when every other media outlet reports on them? No, you don't. Save us all the energy and punch yourself.
