Investigators say the man had tried to order the chainsaws online, and his payment was declined. The customer was told he had to come to the store and show identification, before paying for the equipment. When the employee leaves the counter to get the manuals for the chainsaws, the man picked them up and walked out of the store without paying. The Stihl chainsaws are designed for logging operations and commercial use. One was valued at $760.00 and the other, at $1290.00.
