Unlawfully detained at Home Depot

Unlawfully Detained At Home Depot For Not Showing Receipt – Consumerist

Reader Matt has launched the dreaded EECB (Executive Email Carpet Bomb) on Home Depot—attaching a copy of a formal complaint that he filed with the Metropolitan Police in Washington, D.C..

In addition to poor customer service and an inadequately maintained and stocked store, Matt says he was illegally detained by the Metropolitan Police and forced to return to the store to show his receipt to a Home Depot employee.

According to his police report, the officer stopped Matt without reasonable cause and forced him to comply with “store policy.” Matt feels that this was a violation of his 4th amendment rights.
