Holyoke Mall Shoplifters Foiled

Three women caught shoplifting at the Holyoke Mall allegedly used bags lined with aluminum foil to get past security systems.  Police say three Springfield women took clothing from American Eagle, Charlotte Russe and Finish Line.  An employee called police after seeing them unload loot into their car.  Professional shoplifters often used foil-lined bags to prevent security tags from setting off alarms.
