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.
