So you know the old trick of hiding out in a store until after it closes and then robbing the place blind?

Wanted man at Sears

It doesn't work, at least not at the Dedham Sears. Two would-be yeggs hid out in the store when it closed on Jan. 5 and then tried to steal some stuff - only to discover that even Sears now has motion detectors, which brought the Dedham PD tout suite:

Suspects fled upon seeing police inside the store.

Also, they were captured by surveillance videos, which should prove useful to police when they catch the pair.

Sears was the Amazon of the 20th century and have spent the last 20-30 years committing slow suicide. They should have seen the writing on the wall when Woolworths was reduced to existing as Footlocker.

When I was a kid

I wanted to do this in the Hyde Park Star so I could head to the junk food isle and eat all I wanted. I then thought I could live in the shelves, say behind some toilet paper. Everything I would need would be in the store.
