A Lowes customer on Old Fort Parkway was told not to climb the store shelves or use the store ladder to access items on the top shelf. Later, an employee at the store noticed on a security camera that the same customer had not only climbed the shelving in the vacuum cleaner aisle, but also helped himself to a brand new $599 Dyson Vacuum Cleaner.
After taking the vacuum from the shelf, he somewhat hid it under his arm while walking out the front door of the store without paying for it.
The man actually got away with the theft, but the incident was caught on camera. No arrests have been made.
