CAPE CORAL, Fla -- A Lee county couple is accused of stealing from a Home Depot during a curfew that had most people off the streets. 

Alicia Cannarella and Jermaine Evan have been charged with grand theft and violating a State-of-Emergency curfew, which was put into effect because of Hurricane Irma.

Investigators say they were patrolling Cape Coral when they saw the pair trying to steal a damaged shed outside of the Home Depot on Northeast Pine Island Road.
