how did they not notice? I don't think things like air conditioners or large items sell for $5....NO ONE noticed or thought the price was a little odd? Something tells me he had a friend at HD...either that or their cashiers are pretty brainless

He obviously didn't walk out with air conditioners idiot. There are tons of smaller items that you can carry through the self checkout. Router bits are tiny and sell for upwards of 100 bucks. Same with fancy doorknobs. There is software that can make barcodes and put them on a small sticky label. All you have to do is get the barcode number and type it into the software, print it out and stick it over the real barcode. It's not rocket sciene. A huge place like home depot can only watch so many customers. You can pull this stunt on a busy weekend day. I watched some deranged lady walk out the door of walmart last year during xmas with a cart full of stuff. not paid for. security didn't even catch her. probably busy watching teenagers.
