Police arrested  the 58-year-old Kalihi woman on suspicion of second-degree theft at The Home Depot, located at 421 Alakawa St. 

The woman entered the store and placed items in her cart worth more than $300, police said. She then went to the customer service counter and allegedly asked for store credit in exchange for the unpaid items. The store clerk put the refund on a store credit card, police said.
