Man harassed with items around truck

10:52 a.m. Friday, July 19, Home Depot, 5215 CSH 121

A man filed a report of harassment after someone placed items beside and under his truck, and wrote a profanity in the dirt on the truck.

The victim told police he parked his Ford pickup truck in a contractor parking area directly in front of the contractor entrance to Home Depot.

When he returned 20 minutes later, he found a pro-trailer parking sign moved directly by the driver’s door and three flatbed carts pushed underneath the pickup truck.

The suspect also wrote ”I am a lazy [expletive]” in the dirt on the side of the truck.

The man removed the items from around his truck and asked a Home Depot employee if there were surveillance cameras facing the area. The employee said there weren’t.

When the man went outside again, he found the sign had again been placed by the driver’s side door. The man was not able to find anyone who could have been a suspect.

The man said he thought the person involved could have been his ex-wife, with whom he has been having ongoing problems and recently obtained a temporary civil protection order against.
