Home Depot out of certain batteries; stocked with water and sand.

Chief Michael Mastronardy of the Toms River Township Police Department reported that Anthony Kanaris, 24, of Corbin Street in Lakewood, was arrested by Officer Michael MacDonald, after he was found to have stolen electrical breakers from Home Depot on Friday night. “Kanaris was involved in shoplifting $119 worth of electric breakers from Home Depot 5:30 Friday evening.
