A Home Depot employee was arrested Thursday after store security staff members say he has stolen more than $14,000 worth of merchandise over several months, according to a release.

Madison police were called to the Home Depot at 4550 Verona Road around 5:30 a.m. after store surveillance cameras showed 33-year-old Tremaine R. Williams, of Madison, repeatedly taking smart home products, officials said.

According to the release, Williams took security cameras and thermostats by concealing them in a backpack over several months.

Security staff members told the police department Williams posted stolen merchandise for sale on his Facebook page.

Williams was arrested at the store on a tentative charge of felony retail theft. He was also arrested on a probation violation.
