Police said the group stole clothes about 11:30 a.m. from a store in the 600 block of North Michigan Avenue and ran to the CTA Red Line station on Chicago Avenue.

They ran north on the tracks to the next stop at Division Street, where waiting officers arrested them, police said.

Red Line service was halted for 20 minutes.

The men were each released on bail, Cook County court records show. They are due back in court Feb. 27.
