State Police troopers arrested two men Sunday just two hours after they were allegedly captured on a surveillance camera breaking into a Hanover jewelry and rare coin store.
Richard Durante, 44, of East Bridgewater and David Foley, 33 of Brockton were taken into custody about 4:30 p.m. Sunday in connection with the burglary at the Hanover Coin and Jewelry Store after their vehicle was stopped on Route 3 southbound in Braintree, according to State Police.
Authorities said a surveillance camera at the Washington Street store provided a detailed description of the suspects. Also seen in the surveillance video was a distinctively colored bag which matched a bag seized from the stopped vehicle, police said.
The store was closed at the time of the break-in and State Police said it appears the suspects were unsuccessful in taking anything from the store.
Durante, the driver of the car, was charged with breaking and entering in the daytime with intent to commit a felony, malicious destruction of property and operating after revocation of license. Foley, a passenger in the car also is charged with burglary charges.
Both suspects are expected to be arraigned in Hingham District Court today.
Troopers Dan Crespi and Edward Roch made the arrests with the assistance of Hanover officers. Both are former Hanover police officers.
