MARRERO, LA -- The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is trying to track down a pair of thieves accused of stealing $15,000 in power tools.  The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

According to deputies, the heists happened on October 10, 11, and 16 at a store in Marrero.  They released surveillance footage of one of the heists.

All 3 thefts happened at The Home Depot on Lapalco Boulevard.

Deputies say in the first case, one of the suspects acted alone, but in the other two, both suspects participated.

The surveillance footage shows the suspects pull an empty shopping cart into the aisle in the store where the power tools are displayed.  Box after box, the pair filled the cart until they could hardly stop the tools from spilling onto the floor.

The power tool aisle in the store has signs to inform people that security cameras are in use.  In fact, there are even monitors that show people what's being recorded!
