SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- Police say two Springfield residents who cleared a downtown clothing store of its entire inventory were easy to nab - they were arrested wearing some of the stolen clothing with price tags still attached.
Police said the duo were charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony, and larceny of more than $250 in connection with the Wednesday morning theft.
Sergeant John Delaney said police were alerted by a local resident who saw the suspects repeatedly walk in and out of Mr. S. Lee's Clothing store's rear entrance carrying boxes and bags.
The suspects were arrested after a short foot chase.
Delaney said the stolen merchandise is worth "tens of thousands" of dollars
