Three armed robbery suspects were arrested while they allegedly attempted to change clothes in a Wal-Mart to elude police in Lynn Saturday afternoon.
A handgun was reportedly recovered from one of the suspects. Officials have not yet released the names of those arrested, citing an ongoing investigation.
The three suspects, two from Lynn and another from Boston, face armed robbery charges.
The Wal-Mart was reportedly briefly evacuated during the incident.
“We take any threats to the safety of our customers and associates very seriously,” a Walmart spokeswoman said in a statement to WCVB News. “We will be providing any information we have to help the police in their ongoing investigation. We also encourage anyone with information to contact law enforcement.”Caesar can be reached at Christopher.Caesar@globe.com or via Twitter @ChrisCaesar.
