Two South Jersey suspects were arrested in connection with a break-in at a clothing store in Atlantic City, authorities said.
On Saturday, a man and woman were arrested after a police officer observed them burglarizing a store.
At 7:43 a.m., Officer Thomas Gilardi was patrolling the area of the Tanger Outlets-The Walk when he saw Amanda Reynolds, 28, of Little Egg Harbor, pacing back and forth near the Abercrombie & Fitch store, according to Atlantic City police.
Gilardi then observed Duane Napper, 46, of Atlantic City, exit the store carrying a large bag and begin to walk away with Reynolds, police said.
Gilardi noticed that the front glass door of the retail store had been smashed. Napper and Reynolds were arrested without incident, police said. The bag contained nearly $2,700 in stolen merchandise, they said.
Napper was charged with burglary, theft, criminal mischief and conspiracy. He was released on a summons with a future court date.
Reynolds was charged with burglary, theft, conspiracy and contempt of court. She was being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
