Duo makes quick dash after outlet store theft

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying two individuals suspected of stealing numerous items of clothing from an outlet store in Estero.

According to detectives, two black females, one of whom may actually be a male, walked into the Ralph Lauren Polo store at Miromar Outlets shortly after 5 p.m. on June 11th.  Six minutes later, both individuals exited the store with large tote bags.  As they walked out, the security alarm was triggered, prompting both individuals to walk quickly away from the area before anyone could catch up with them.  When managers reviewed the store’s surveillance video, both suspects were seen loading up their bags with clothing from the store, and several employees even recognized the two from prior thefts at the store.

Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of the two unidentified suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
