Two Armed Men Arrested Following Attempted Retail Theft

Two men were arrested Friday afternoon following a theft-gone-wrong at the Target near Hilldale Mall. Police said the incident started with a retail-theft-in-progress call with one suspect who was armed with a knife. When officers arrived at the store, they arrested 36-year-old Raymond M. Sanchez.

As police continued their investigation, officers learned Sanchez had gone to the store with 26-year-old Timothy A. Herald. A security guard at the store told police Herald was also shoplifting and was carrying a knife under his shirt.

During the investigation, officers found the car that the two men had traveled to Target in. Sanchez insisted he bought the vehicle a few days prior, but police said it was listed as stolen out of Janesville. Inside the stolen vehicle, police found electronics and money that had been stolen during a burglary at Sky Zone Trampoline Park earlier that day…  Channel 3000 News
