CONCORD, N.H. (CBS/AP) Police in Salem, N.H., have charged a mother-and-son team with the theft of more than $1,600 worth of video games from a Best Buy store.

Police said 64-year-old Luise LaQuerre and her 20-year-old son, Christopher Andrukaitis, both of Amesbury, Mass., were charged with felony theft after store security officers on Monday spotted the son stuffing video games into a cloth bag carried by his mother.

They were stopped when they left the store.

Officers say in the duo's car they found an additional trove of video games believed to have been stolen earlier in the day from the same store.

Police put the value of the video games at $1,670.

The suspected mother-and-son team were released on bail.
