Thieving troupe targets designer clothes and high end booze

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying four females and one male who stole nearly $4,500 in clothes and alcohol in a half hour stealing spree last month.

On November 10th, the group initially gathered at the Ralph Lauren Polo store, located at 20350 Summerlin Road at 8:30 p.m.  The group quickly gathered a large quantity of clothing, unlocked the back exit door and left the building with 28 shirts and 22 pairs of pants, valued at $3,992.99.  At 8:59 p.m., the same five individuals arrived at the Publix Liquor Store, located at 15880 Summerlin Road, and proceeded to steal 9 bottles of Patron tequila and Grey Goose vodka, totaling $463.91.

Anyone with information on the identities of any of the five 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 $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
