Swimming pool stolen from West Springfield store
WEST SPRINGFIELD (AP) - Two thieves who struck a West Springfield business over the weekend weren't looking for cash.
Police say one of the men pulled a gun on an employee as he and another man hauled away a $500 inflatable swimming pool.
Police say the suspects entered Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies at about 3:45 p.m. Sunday and began dragging the 15-foot pool away.
When a store worker asked if they needed help, one man pulled a gun and pointed it at her.
Both suspects were described as white, about 5-foot-6 inches and tall and with thin builds.
