In the early afternoon of May 7 2018, Aurora Police received a call from Gilman’s Home Center (1055 Green Blvd. Aurora), to report a theft of a Milwaukee Battery Pack valued at $134. Two suspects, a white male wearing a black hoodie, and a white female with black hair, entered the store and went different directions. Store video showed the male took a battery pack before rejoining the female at the rear of the store. Both suspects left store together without paying for the battery pack. Suspects left the parking lot in a silver Hyundai or Honda passenger car with a dent in rear bumper and possible Ohio registration.
