Man pays .57-cents for $400 nail gun - theft charges likely

A Covington, Tennessee man is a suspect in a recent scam at the Home Depot Store on Old Fort Parkway in Murfreesboro. The culprit is accused of using the self checkout lane and scanning a barcode for an item that is less than a dollar, but walking out with nearly $400 in merchandise.

At the Murfreesboro store, the individual left the store with a $400 nail gun that he ended up paying $ .57-cents for. It is suspected that the same man has pulled a similar scam at other Home Depot stores.

An arrest has not been made, but police now have the suspect’s drivers license number and home address. At this point, a warrant will have to be obtained.
