LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Two people have been arrested in Lake Worth in connection with thefts at the Family Dollar store at 1908 Lake Worth Road.

Investigators say that Williams and Wilder fastened their underpants to their legs using electrical tape.
The undergarments, according to deputies, were used to hold the stolen items.
A PBSO deputy noticed a pickup truck outside of the store with three adults and three children inside. Personal hygiene products were spotted inside and outside of the truck, according to investigators.
The Family Dollar estimated that $339.42 in merchandise was taken from the store.
