2 women caught on surveillance camera stealing handbags

CRIME Stoppers and the Department of Public Safety are asking the community to help identify two women who stole over $2,000 worth of merchandise from T-Galleria by Duty Free.

The theft incidents were caught by the store’s surveillance camera.

“We created a video to hopefully get a lead and prevent these crimes from happening again in the future,” DPS Public Information Officer Jackie Rae said.

 “If you see something say something,” she said on the video.

If you know who these women are, please call Crime Stoppers at 234-7272.If you know who these women are, please call Crime Stoppers at 234-7272.

According to Rae, the first theft happened on Nov. 28, 2017 when one of the women stole a Louis Vuitton handbag.

 “Although she seemed nervous and looked straight into the camera she eventually walked out of the store with [the] handbag,” Rae said.

The next incident happened on Feb. 16, 2018. The same woman walked in but this time she was not alone. She was followed by another woman who had two small children with her.

 Video footage from the security camera shows that the older of the two children was used as an accomplice to the crime, Rae said.

 “They walked into the store separately but eventually the older boy was left on his own,” she added. “He seemed indecisive for quite some time but eventually he grabbed a bag from the display rack and headed for the door.”

 The second suspect was the first to exit while the first suspect left with the boy and with Burberry and MCM handbags.

On March 5, 2018, the two women walked into the T-Galleria together, Rae said. Later, they casually walked out of the store with two Prada wallets.

If you have any information regarding the suspects’ identities and whereabouts, please call Crime Stoppers at 234-7272.
