Police searching for man in attempted theft at Oakland Park Lowe’s

OAKLAND PARK, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are on the hunt for a man caught trying to steal loads of items from a hardware store in Oakland Park.

Surveillance cameras rolled when the suspect filled up a shopping cart full of $2,000 worth of products at a Lowe’s along Northwest 10th Terrace and West Oakland Park Boulevard, back in Sept. 22.
