Four People Arrested For Stealing From Home Depot

St. Petersburg, Fla. (970 WFLA)-Detectives assigned to the Economics Crime Unit have arrested four suspects for multiple counts of organized felony retail theft and petit theft.

According to detectives, the investigation began on June 7, 2015, when Home Depot loss prevention personnel reported a pattern involving multiple retail thefts. The investigation continued through January 14, 2016.

Through various investigative techniques, detectives identified four suspects; 54-year-old Alija Boskovic, 26-year-old Nermin Boskovic, 53-year-old Fatima Boskovic and 21-year-old Sanita Jasrevic.
