A Milford man was arrested after stealing several high-end handbags from TJ Maxx in Braintree, said police.
Wade R. Getchell, 26, of Milford was arrested on Saturday, May 17, for allegedly stealing merchandise from the TJ Maxx store on Grove Street.
The store's employees told police that two men had Getchell detained outside the store after a store employee observed him select several “high end” handbags, with a total value at more than $1,000, and then run out of the store.
Police said an employee screamed at Getchell, which attracted the attention of two off-duty Suffolk County deputy sheriffs, who chased him and detained him until Braintree police arrived.
Getchell was then placed under arrest and charged with larceny of property over $250.
