Robert Martinez, Jr., 48, charged with aggravated robbery
Robert Martinez, Jr., 48, is accused of stealing bolt cutters from a Home Depot store by stuffing them down his pants, then pulling a knife on an employee who tried to stop him.
San Antonio police arrested Martinez Wednesday on a charge of aggravated robbery.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated that the incident happened last Thursday at a Home Depot on SE Military Drive.
Police said surveillance cameras inside the store captured a man putting a pair of bolt cutters down his pants, then attempting to leave without paying, the affidavit stated.
When a worker tried to stop him at the door, the man pulled out a knife, winked at the worker and left, running to a getaway car, the affidavit stated.
Employees of the store were able to supply detectives with a license plate number for the car, and they used it to track down Martinez, the affidavit stated.
