Mass. police arrest pair wearing stolen clothing

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
