TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

Two fugitives who broke into a group home are in custody after they were tracked down in a Tempe Walmart store where they had changed clothes to elude police.

John Furfaro, 31, and Candice Hough, 29, were arrested Wednesday on charges of second-degree burglary.

After the pair broke into the group home in the 300 block of E. Laguna Drive in Tempe, they fled the area on a motorcycle and drove to the Walmart at 800 E. Southern Ave., said Tempe police Lt. Mike Pooley.

Officers followed them to Walmart and detectives temporarily placed the store on lockdown until they were captured.

Pooley said they found Furfaro had heroin and methamphetamine in his possession at the time of the arrest.
