THEFTS FROM MACYS, DILLARDS
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Melbourne Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two women who are suspected of stealing thousands of dollars worth of clothing from Macy’s department store located at the Melbourne Square Mall.
According to police, on at least three separate occasions (once in July and twice in August), the two women walked into the Macy’s, selected men’s Polo brand shirts from the rack and stuffed them into empty shopping bags that they brought with them. The women then walked out of the store without paying for the merchandise. These same two women may have committed similar thefts at the Dillards at Melbourne Square Mall.
The Polo shirts that are mainly targeted by these suspects sell for $80 each. The duo has also taken other clothing items – all from the Polo brand and it is believed that these suspects may be responsible for the theft of over $10,000 worth of merchandise, according to police.
Both suspects are described as black females, 5-4 to 5-7. The first suspect is believed to weigh more than 200 pounds, and the second suspect is 140-150 pounds.
The Melbourne Police Department is currently investigating this incident and more information may be available at a later time.
Anyone with information on the identity of these two women is asked to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477). All calls to CRIMELINE are anonymous.
