SEATTLE (WPVI) -- The best efforts of a pair of thieves at a Costco in Seattle were not good enough.

They busted out of a back door and right into the arms of waiting police.

Surveillance video shows the suspects were caught red-handed with armloads of stolen laptops and vacuums last Wednesday afternoon.

An employee had alerted police when he recognized one of the suspects from a prior incident.

Police say the two thieves, a 30-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, and their getaway driver, were all taken into custody.
