Fresno police released video they hope will help track down a thief who took several laptops from a downtown Office Depot.
The bold theft happened about 11 a.m. June 1 at the store, located at 2736 E. Divisadero St. The suspect can be seen on the video yanking on the laptops to loose them from their display moorings.
Police said employees confronted the suspect, who told them he had “something on him.” Fearing he might be armed, the employees backed off.
