A Hecht's security guard told police he saw two members of a cleaning crew take sunglasses, T-shirts, underwear and jeans from displays shortly before 1 p.m. and take them to their work room.

The men removed the sensor tags from the items, put them on and left the store, police said. The guard held the men for police.

Another security guard called police to the store for two shoplifters about 3 1/2 hours later.

Anthony Richard Howell, 45, and Monica Magdalene Gisiner, 42, both of no fixed address, were arrested and charged with theft.

A guard told police he saw a woman take three shirts, together worth $291, then walk behind a display with a man.

The man put the shirts in an empty Hecht's bag, police said. When the pair left the store without paying, the guard stopped them, police said.
