LYNN, Mass. (AP) - Lynn police say the suspects in the robbery of a Radio Shack tried to get away by dashing into a nearby Walmart and changing into clothes stolen from the retail giant.

Three men are scheduled to be arraigned Monday on robbery and shoplifting charges.

Police tell The Daily Item (https://bit.ly/V1Wk2u ) it started at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday when two men went into the Radio Shack, showed what appeared to be a handgun, and stole electronics, including iPads and an iPhone.

Police spotted the suspects’ car heading toward Revere. The car turned around, and the suspects ditched it in a Walmart parking lot.

Two men ran into the store and changed into clothes stolen off the racks. They were arrested in the garden center.
