BOLINGBROOK – Two men from the nation of Ghana each were charged with three counts of felony retail theft after allegedly buying electronics with stolen credit cards, Bolingbrook police said.

Bolingbrook police assisted the Secret Service in arresting the men, Samuel Boah, 27, and Kwame Nketiah, 23, on Tuesday. Police said both were prepared to depart the United States and go back to Ghana.
