Home Depot Security Guard Blake Mohs Fatally Shot By Female Thief Who Fled With Boyfriend & Their 2-Year-Old Toddler

A California Home Depot security guard and Boy Scout leader was killed Tuesday when he tried to stop a woman from stealing an electrical item before she and her boyfriend fled with their toddler in the back of their car.

Blake Mohs, 26, caught Benicia Knapps allegedly in the process of snatching what may have been a phone charger from the store shelves around 2:15 p.m., Pleasanton police said.

A “struggle ensued” after Mohs chased her to the store’s loading dock, but Knapps fired her gun and ran off, cops allege. Knapps, 32, allegedly escaped into a getaway car driven by her boyfriend, David Guillory, 31, with her 2-year-old child in the backseat as Mohs heavily bled inside the home improvement store.

He was rushed to a hospital but succumbed to his injuries. Knapps and Guillory were stopped in Oakland, 20 miles from the Home Depot, and arrested by deputies just 15 minutes after the shooting.

Knapps — a licensed security guard with priors for theft — was charged with murder, robbery, child endangerment and conspiracy. Guillory was arrested on a child endangerment charge and evading police and driving the wrong way.

Knapps was placed on a mental hold after choking herself with a seatbelt in the back of the Alameda Sheriff’s Department police cruiser until she lost consciousness, CBS reported.

Cops found a handgun at an intersection near the store. The Knapps’ toddler was released to relatives.
