Sue Donaldson was working in her Christmas tree lot when investigators moved in on the men.
One of them made a break for it, leaving behind a blonde wig as he ran.
“Next thing you know, I heard a whole bunch of yelling and I looked up and here comes this guy weaving and bobbing through our Christmas trees,” Donaldson said.
The suspects were taken into custody without incident, deputies said.
