PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) — Police say a man donned an orange Home Depot apron and posed as an employee to steal air conditioners in New Hampshire. But a manager noticed the name on the garment didn’t match that of any worker at the store.
Police arrested 53-year-old Bernardo Calana, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, on Saturday.
WMUR-TV reports Calana loaded two air conditions into his pickup truck in Plaistow and went back inside. A manager noticed the apron with the name “Shannon” with flowers drawn on it and called police.
Calana later told police he didn’t know anything about the air conditioners, but a Home Depot apron was found in his back pocket.
Calana was released on bail. The voice mailbox for a listed phone number for him was full.
