Men arrested in Burbank Sears for allegedly stealing women's clothes

Two Arleta men were arrested Saturday after they allegedly stole women’s clothing from Sears in Burbank and returned to the store, police said.

The men -- Richard Munje, 46, and Paul Rey, 30 -- reportedly stuffed a yellow plastic bag with women’s shorts, pants and a denim top, and left the store to place the bag in their Buick sedan, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

The pair then returned to the store -- located at 111 East Magnolia Blvd. -- just before 8 p.m., where they were contacted by police in the lingerie department.

All the alleged stolen items were recovered, Ryburn said.
