Posted on February 27th, 2012 No Comments

Three Hyannis residents have been arrested after trying to steal an expensive purse from a department store inside the Cape Cod Mall. The attempted theft occurred at Macy’s over the weekend.

The three individuals were shopping at Macy’s when one of them cut the security cord from a Michael Kors purse, worth $348. They left the purse, and later returned to the store. On their second trip to the store, they moved the handbag near a pillar, and out of sight of the security cameras.

On Sunday, one of the three returned to the department store to complete the theft. He grabbed the purse, and was making his way to exit the store when a Macy’s security guard tried to apprehend him. The suspect pulled out a hypodermic needle and threateningly waved it in front of the security guard. He dropped the purse, and made a run for his car. Police arrived on the scene, and arrested all three individuals that were inside the vehicle.

Three East Falmouth men broke into a motel room located in the Great Bay Motel on Teaticket Highway on a Saturday night in an attempt to commit a robbery.

The men approached a motel room wearing masks and carrying a baseball bat. Two men were inside the room and answered the door after hearing the knock. The men made their way in, but one of the residents in the room put up a fight and was able to strip off the mask of one of the assailants and also take control of the baseball bat. The man was not willing to leave without his baseball bat and so the two men held him there until police were able to arrive.

They were charged with home invasion, conspiracy and attempting to commit a crime. Each were held on different bail amounts and are scheduled to arrive back in court on January 24, 2012.
