The Tallahassee Police Department is responding to a robbery at the Home Depot located on Capital Circle NW in Tallahassee, according to Officer Dave Northway with TPD.

The incident occurred around 12:18pm today. The suspect is described as a white male, around 60 years of age with light-colored hair and dark clothing. The suspect approached a clerk at a check out lane and implied that he had a weapon. The suspect then demanded money from register. The clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the suspect got away. No one was hurt.

Home Depot is open for business, but the register where the robbery took place is blocked off. Police hope to have surveillance photos later today.

    l guess the white owners of home depot are so dumb they put cash registers right at the store exit,if it was in the front in the middle of two doors it would take time for grandpa to exit the store and may be he would have got caught,

    And they say we don't have a problem with racism in Tallahassee. Yeah, right. One white man, who probably has Alzheimers, walks into a Home Depot and asks for money. He doesn't shoot anyone. He doesn't hit anyone. He doesn't wear a hoodie or his pants are not hanging down to his knees. And the BLACKS are out in force. Naw, there is no racial tension in Leon county. Why don't the leaders of this town start taking care of crime (which would lock up a whole lot of BLACKS) and get the thugs off the street so we can actually move about in our town without being shot, robbed, or killed. Stop the fancy medians and give us police protection or can't the leaders of Tallahassee prioritize beyond their pocketbook.

      Your comment suggests that there is racism in Tallahassee. Robbery is a violent crime. He doesn't need a hoodie to be a thug. He is a violent white man who needs to be locked up. In our county, we have old white men still robbing banks. Again, these are violent thugs who need to be locked up.

    roflmfao, He is a wanna be member of the marchin 100, and since they cant haze each other anymore, this is what he was to do for his initiation. We gotta have money for our defense. Its really a band member in a white man disguise, see how he holds his hand's at his side, that's band practice for sure, and the truck is the dead give away, its got spinner's on it.

    Gus, when we white people steal we steal whole countries, resources, people, businesses, lives. We steal big. And dare others to say something.

      He a white guy robbing a white business. Not a black business or a black person. If he was you would see why all the "bubbas' are tiered of seeing you blacks rob whites.

        I'm not black. And it's hilarious that you think Home Depot is a "white" business. So is Popeye's a "black" business? Doesn't take much to flush racists out of the woodpile, does it?

          Home Depot is a white own company. That is not a racist remark it it a fact. NAACP does not need your help throwing the race card. Trust me they got it covered.

        Wow, I didn't realize that Home Depot was a "white" business. I have been going to all the different hardware stores. I had no idea there was one designated for just my race. OMG, I eat at Popeyes all the time. Guess I'll have to cut that out. I'm wondering what makes a business white or black in your eyes. The owner of the business, the employees the majority of the people who frequent it? Whew that is a lot to research before I go into an establishment. I'm thinking I'll just keep doing what I'm doing. If an establishment gives me a good price and treats me with great customer service I don't care if they are a "purple" establishment. I'm going to keep going back.

    The guy was in the store for 97 minutes, unless he left and came back. I hope they find him and prosecute him the same as all the other thugs that rob.

    If you look at the surveillance video, you never see the guy point a gun, nor do you see him receive any cash. This is a case of "mistaken Identity" and I ask for a motion of dismissal.
