    Massachusetts police are searching for three men who allegedly tried to steal laptops from a Best Buy in Mansfield on Tuesday afternoon.

    The attempted theft at the School Street store was captured on store surveillance. In the video, two of the suspects can be seen entering the store and grabbing three laptops and bolting for the door at about 12 p.m.

    Two Best Buy loss prevention officers and a customer managed to get the computers back, but the suspects hopped into a waiting white Toyota Camry.

    Police said the driver sped off onto Route 140 where two officers tried to stop the car. The driver kept going, driving in the breakdown lane of Interstate 495 southbound, reaching speeds well over 100 mph.

    The speeding car was then spotted by Norton Police who then began pursuit. Police ultimately gave up the pursuit because they said it was too dangerous to everyone else on the road.

    Police told WJAR-TV that the car had stolen plates out of Plymouth — Massachusetts PC Patriots plate NE26ST.

    Anyone with information on the identities of the men is urged contact Mansfield Police Officer Mike Fenore at 508-261-7301 Ext. 61309.
