    WILMINGTON, Del. - May 14, 2010 (WPVI) -- Authorities in Wilmington say a man terrorized workers and shoppers at a Home Depot store with a hatchet from a store shelf.

    Andre Walker, 45, of Bear, Delaware was arrested after the Thursday night incident.

    Police say Walker went into the Home Depot in the Miller Road Shopping Center in Wilmington around 8:00 p.m.

    He took a bucket and a hatchet from a store display, police said, and brought the items to a register in the Garden Center. Police say that's when Walker grabbed the hatchet and the female clerk by the shirt, demanding cash.

    Guess that was a plan that seemed like a good idea at the time... Didn't even have to bring his own loot bag. Don't think I'd rob a place where there are countless items that are more damaging than a hatchet.

    I'll see your hatchet and raise you a machete and a battery powered nail gun.

    Another "Hatchet Job' by 'stoooopid' criminal wanabee.

    (j/k),Wasn't that they same guy a few years back that tried the same thing with a chainsaw, but upon arriving at the register yelling 'gimmie all your money', then realizing it was an electric chainsaw, he demanded an extension cord.
