Police are looking for a man and a woman who stole a large amount of electrical wiring from a Lowe’s Home Improvement store in San Marcos on Sept. 13.
The pair left in a gray four-door car, San Marcos police said in a Monday Facebook post. Police also provided photos of the man they believe was responsible for the theft in their social media post.
Authorities said the man, who is wearing a blue shirt, light blue pants and white athletic shoes in police photos, had an ankle monitor on his left leg. The device is commonly used by law enforcement probation and parole departments.

Big-box retailers are playing musical stores on the Upper East Side.
Home Depot, which currently leases nearly 80,000 square feet at Vornado Realty Trust’s 731 Lexington Avenue, may be moving to a bigger spot in the neighborhood.
The home improvement store is on its way to taking over the more than 90,000-square-foot space Bed Bath & Beyond currently occupies at 410 East 61st Street, sources told The Real Deal. The retail condo and garage is owned by Gazit Horizons, whose president and CEO Jeff Mooallem declined comment through a spokeswoman. The deal is reportedly close to completion, with Ripco representing Home Depot.
This week, Bed Bath & Beyond announced it would shutter that location by December as part of its larger plan to close 200 stores throughout the U.S.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Menard, Inc. is appealing a jury award to a woman who was injured when she fell over a flatbed cart at its store in Minot, North Dakota.
A jury last year awarded nearly $40,000 to Darlene Johnson, plus about $145,000 in attorney’s fees in a civil lawsuit against the home improvement chain, based in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
According to the complaint in the case, Johnson went to Menards in May 2013 to exchange a floor vent. She stopped at the customer service desk to ask about exchanging the item.
As Johnson turned to leave, she fell onto the flatbed cart that had been left in the walking area beside the service desk, Minot Daily News reported.
Johnson cracked seven teeth which required extensive dental work, including root canals and bridges.
Her attorneys argued Menards was at fault for not keeping the walking area free of
(RTTNews) – Home improvement retailer Lowe’s Companies Inc. plans to install pickup lockers at all U.S. stores aiming to improve contactless delivery for online buyers amid worsening Covid-19 spread.
The “Buy Online Pickup in Store” self-service lockers at its more than 1,700 stores will be available by the end of March 2021. In most major metro markets, the additional online pickup option will be installed by Thanksgiving.
Lowe’s is teaming with Parcel Pending by Quadient, a provider of package management solutions, for the retail locker solution.
The electronic technology in the lockers generates a scannable barcode when an order is ready for pickup. Customers can quickly collect their online orders from self-service lockers near the front of stores in locations.
This will eliminate checkout time, allow direct access to pick up orders, and help customers get in and out of the store faster during the busy holiday season.
The latest theft of cordless finishing nailers occurred on Friday, Sept. 11 at the Lowe’s in Carmel.
CARMEL, Ind. — Police in Carmel are searching for a man believed to be involved in the theft of tools on several occasions from a home improvement store.
Investigators shared three surveillance photos of the suspect, including one from the latest alleged theft on Friday, Sept. 11, at the Lowe’s store in Carmel. Police believe the same suspect is involved in the other two thefts of cordless finishing nailers, as well.
The white male suspect, who is described as standing between 5-feet-5-inches and six-feet tall and weighing between 150-170 pounds, was last seen wearing a green Indiana Pacers t-shirt, blue shorts and a black-and-white hat. He was wearing a blue Indianapolis Colts facemask during the alleged theft on Sept. 11.
Home Depot and Lowe’s might be the best-known home improvement retailers in America, but neither is the favorite of consumers.
That honor goes to Ace Hardware — again.
Ace ranked No. 1 for overall customer satisfaction in J.D. Power’s 2020 Home Improvement Retailer Satisfaction Study, marking the 13th time in 14 years that the retailer outscored the competition.

Condon Hardware at 114 Main St. first opened in town back in 1965 at another location on Main Street located in the same plaza it operates today, said owner Dennis Condon, who is planning to retire at the end of this year.
MEDWAY — After 55 years as the town’s go-to store for local home improvement needs, Condon Hardware will close at the end of this year.
The popular hardware and supply store at 114 Main St. first opened in 1965 at another location in the same Main Street plaza where it operates today, said owner Dennis Condon, who is planning to retire.
After experiencing some medical issues this spring – around the time the business’ lease was set to be renewed — Condon, 75, said he reconsidered running the store. And due to the coronavirus pandemic, he opted to retire rather than sell the space.
