Two men who allegedly stole TVs and tablet computers from a Montague grocery store didn’t get very far after the RCMP caught up to them a few minutes later.

On Monday at around 2 p.m., Kings District RCMP responded to a call at the Atlantic Superstore where the men allegedly walked out with two 48-inch LED TVs and three tablet computers.

The store manager followed them and provided the RCMP with a licence plate number and description of the vehicle the men were driving.

A few minutes later, RCMP officers who were in the area spotted the vehicle, arrested three men and retrieved the stolen items.

The three Charlottetown area men were charged with theft and will appear in provincial court in Georgetown at a later date.
