Man returns stolen item for $265 store credit



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. – A man returned a paint gun he never bought recently at a local Lowes.

The man went into the tool section of the store, picked up a paint gun and took it to customer service. He told the clerk he didn’t have his receipt, but wanted to return it.

The clerk took the paint gun and issued a store credit for $265, and then the man left.

To get the credit, the 22-year-old man had to show a driver’s license, so his information and that photo were given to deputies. Surveillance recordings of the man’s actions were also shown to deputies.

The store credit was deactivated.
