Home Depot loss prevention officers were fought Thursday afternoon by an alleged thief, which then elevated the case to a robbery.

At 4:52 p.m. the store officers tried to take Moses Lara, 33, of Modesto, into custody after they witnessed him stealing. Lara fought them to get away and had him in custody prior to police officers' arrival.

Lara was arrested on a robbery charge.
