More about that robbery of the Home Depot store in San Carlos that was mentioned in Post’s Update column today.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s office put out a statement this morning saying that a man left the store on Friday night without paying for about $130 in merchandise. When an employee confronted the shoplifter, he pulled a Glock handgun and threatened to shoot the employee.

The suspect then ran across the parking lot and got into a black older model 1990s Chevrolet Tahoe with tinted windows that sped away.

The pickup was last seen traveling south on Industrial Road.

The suspect is described as a black man in his late 40s and wearing a gray baseball hat, a blue and white plaid button up shirt, dark blue jeans and white shoes.
