Third cross-dressing suspect arrested

- The third person suspected in a string of robberies at several Home Depot stores has been arrested.

Video released last week showed a pair of cross-dressing men put a 69-year-old employee in a choke-hold while activating stolen gift cards in Winter Haven.  But that wasn't the only robbery.

Detectives say Omar McCrae, Malik Taylor, and Exavier Walker stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from Polk County Home Depots. 

McCrae and Taylor were found over the weekend in Louisiana.  Walker was just arrested overnight.   He is in the Hillsborough County jail and was expected to be transferred to Polk County later today.
