For a while, Peter and Wayne Wallace were runnin' on Dunkin'.
That was until early Sunday morning, when police in Massachusetts arrested the brothers, who authorities believe are responsible for burglarizing as many as 30 Dunkin' Donuts coffee shop locations during the past several months.
"Since the beginning of the year, they’ve hit area Dunkin’ Donuts, breaking in early morning, late at night, prying through drive-thru windows or back doors," Canton Chief Kenneth Berkowitz told the local CBS News.
Dunkin' Donuts' corporate headquarters is based on Canton, but it still took some luck for Chief Berkowitz had his squad to bring the Wallace brothers to justice. Two police officers were sitting outside the Dunkin' Donuts when they saw the Peter, 37, and Wallace, 33, flee the scene, according to local ABC affiliate WCVB-TV.
"In the vehicle -- officers observed in plain view -- burglarious tools, such as a sledge hammer, pry bar and a screw driver in the back seat. At that time, they also noticed numerous wrapped coins and several dollar bills throughout the interior," Assistant District Attorney Farrah Hill said during the brothers' arraignment on Monday, local NBC affiliation WHDH-TV reports.
The Dunkin' Duo is convicted in more than 20 assorted crimes.
Authorities are still searching for a third suspect.
