Police are working with a hardware store to figure out just how much merchandise has been stolen recently.

Last week, managers at Lowe's called police after noticing that tools and supplies were disappearing from shelves.

Police questioned one employee, but charges have yet to be filed.

"They're reviewing their video and whatever else they do within the store there and working closely with our investigators to get an accurate account of how much merchandise has been taken," said Americus Interim Police Chief Herman Lamar.

Officials said the value of the items taken was more than $1,500.
