Police recover sports memorabilia stolen from Saugus barber


SAUGUS, MASS. >> Police have recovered an estimated $5,500 worth of sports memorabilia that was stolen from a Saugus barbershop last month.

The items included jerseys signed by Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and former Celtics star Paul Pierce. They were stolen Oct. 22 from Barber Masters.

Owners and employees of the family owned business described being heartbroken when they arrived at work to find the walls bare.

Police say they found the memorabilia with the help of the shop's surveillance video. Video showed a hooded, masked man breaking into the rear of the shop and looking directly at one camera before tearing it off the wall.

A suspect has been identified and charges will be sought in Lynn District Court. The suspect's name hasn't been made public.
