Alhambra police arrested two armed robbery suspects Thursday afternoon after they allegedly stole merchandise from Home Depot on Marengo Avenue, according to a press release from the Alhambra Police Department.

Police received a call that two African American males, one armed with a handgun, robbed the hardware store and escaped in a black Cadillac. Patrol units then saw two suspects in a black Cadillac enter the westbound 10 Freeway at Fremont Avenue. They followed the men to the 101 Freeway, where they pulled them over at Vignes Street. 

Witnesses from Home Depot were transported to the area and positively identified the suspects, who cooperated with police. The stolen merchandise, including industrial drills and other power tools, were recovered from the car.
