Do you know what really sucks, Berkshire County? Stolen vacuum cleaners. I know, very bad pun, but really, is there anything these days that people will not try to steal? The other day, I was reading a story about someone stealing sections of the brass railings from the stairs at Symphony Hall in Springfield. Sections of the stair railings. I mean, c'mon.

According to the Westfield Police Department, they're looking for a female who stole some vacuums from Wal-Mart and then left the parking lot in a stolen vehicle. All this while she was dressed as a Wal-Mart employee. Here's a picture taken from security camera footage:

Westfield Police report that back on July 29, approximately a half hour before noon, the female suspect can be seen on surveillance camera footage wearing a Walmart vest to blend in with actual employees and proceeding to load up her cart with items.

From the Westfield Police Department's Facebook page:

Apparently she mistook "Everyday low prices", for "every day NO prices", as she stole two expensive vacuums and a trash bin with bags, and then fled the store.

And then, after all that, the vehicle that the female drove away in was apparently stolen from somewhere in Springfield so the registration/license plate was no help in identifying the suspect. Here's a picture of the "getaway car":

Hopefully, the Westfield PD can track down the individual responsible for the thefts(of merchandise and car). For more on the story, visit the Westfield PD's Facebook page here.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
