UPPER MACUNGIE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -

Police in Lehigh County say they caught a pair of thieves red handed.

The Upper Macungie Police Department has been beefing up patrols in hotel parking lots due to a series of car thefts within the past month.

While conducting surveillance at the Best Western Hotel on West Tilghman Street early Monday morning, officers saw two men enter an unlocked car. Police say the men took a Glock handgun from the trunk of the car, along with a subwoofer.

Police say the men took the items to their vehicle, but they were immediately stopped and arrested.

The suspects have been identified as Angel Luis Perez-Sanchez, 27, and Raul Lopez, 27, both of Allentown.
