On January 28, 2017 at approximately 3:50 p.m. Deputy N.C. Potter responded to a disturbance at the Lowe’s Home Improvement Store located at 299 Banks Ford Parkway. Upon arrival, the deputy was advised by loss prevention personnel that two males and a female subject were involved in a dispute. The deputy separated and interviewed the parties. He discovered that one of the male subjects had been hired by the couple to replace tile in a residential rental property.
The previous day the contractor, identified as Corey Estevez, had accompanied the female to Lowe’s where she purchased tile for approximately $700. Both parties had retained a copy of the receipt. Later that day the female returned to Lowe’s with her receipt to claim a military discount. She discovered some of the tile purchased earlier was returned for a refund. The female immediately advised Mr. Estevez, by text, to discontinue work on the project. The rental property tenants then contacted their landlord to inform them that Mr. Estevez was at the residence picking up the tile. The couple then drove to Lowe’s, found Mr. Estevez and confronted him about the theft. This interaction caused the disturbance.
Mr. Estevez was unable to provide any evidence or documentation to counteract the assertion. Video provided by loss prevention was reviewed by the deputy and further supported the couple’s claim.
Corey Alan Henry Estevez, age 28 of Comorn Road in King George, VA was charged with Grand Larceny, Obtaining Money by False Pretenses, Petit Larceny Third or Subsequent Offense and Larceny Third or Subsequent Conviction. He was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on no bond.
