Suspect in Alleged Home Depot Return Scheme Arrested in Brown County, WI - Part of a Larger Ring Targeting Big Box Retailers  Officials say surveillance video shows a couple taking high priced item from the shelves of Home Depot and returning them for a refund. The couple never purchased the merchandise, but they would receive an in-store credit card for a refund. They would in turn sell it for cash at a payday lending store. Officials say it happened three times in one week. The sheriff's office says the woman seen in the video, Amber Teller of Green Bay, has been charged with three misdemeanors. Deputies say they identified the man in the video, but they have not located him. Investigators believe it is part of a much larger ring suddenly targeting big box stores in the last few months. Green Bay Police detectives tell Action Two news they've sent 10 cases to the district attorney since the end of April and have at least six more ready to go where people have stolen thousands of dollars from Home Depot.
