Thief fills up his own beauty bag with stolen makeup 

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying an unknown male who entered a south Fort Myers store and helped himself to nearly $800 in cosmetics last week. 

Surveillance cameras from the Ulta beauty store, located at 13499 S. Cleveland Avenue, showed the suspect walking into the store just after 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 19, carrying a satchel over his shoulder.  After walking suspiciously around the business for a few minutes, he started removing Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes and placing them in his satchel.  He then proceeded to another section of the store, where he placed 43 tubes of lipstick into his bag.  After being in the store less than five minutes, the man left in an unknown direction. The total value of women’s cosmetics taken by the male suspect is just under $800. 

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 35 years of age, 5’10”, 200 pounds with dark receding hair and eyeglasses.  Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the suspect 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 $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips app. 

Note:  A surveillance clip of the suspect (who can be seen in the upper left hand corner of the video) is attached to this release, as well as two still photographs.
