Man who tried to steal drills charged with robbery
According to police, on April 13 Brown was at Home Depot, 541 Kings Highway, when store security personnel recognized him from a previous shoplifting incident at the Home Depot in Bridgeport. The employee watched as Brown walked around the power tool area and picked up two drills sets that were in plastic cases.
Brown then allegedly walked past the registers and, when confronted by security, swung the drill cases at the employee, hitting his leg. Then, police said, Brown pushed the employee to the ground, dropped the drills, and fled the scene.
On May 31 he was charged with third-degree robbery and criminal attempt at fifth-degree larceny and held on a $25,000 bond. Brown was arraigned on the charges that same day.
