Couple Accused Of Theft, Fake Threat In NH

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — A Massachusetts couple has been accused of removing price tags from clothing at a New Hampshire store and replacing them with lower-priced ones. The man, who waited outside while his wife bought the items, is accused of calling in a bomb threat when an officer detained her.

Police said no bomb or explosives were found at the Nashua store on Sunday night. But they eventually arrested 36-year-old Matthew Chapman on a charge of false reports, and criminal liability to theft by deception. They also arrested his wife, 27-year-old Alicia Chapman, on a theft charge. Both are from Pepperell, Mass.

It wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers.
