Gwinnett County police are looking for a six-person crew of thieves they accuse of stealing $2,000 worth of merchandise from the Victoria’s Secret in the Mall of Georgia.
On Monday, the department released photos of the suspects and information about the alleged May 29 crime; the agency did not explain the time between the incident and the release of information.
Police said the group came in two groups about 45 minutes apart carrying bags from other retailers. The first group came about 4 p.m.
All six people bought an item “to give the appearance of legitimate shopping and they each paid with cash.”
But, according to a police report, an employee found “multiple removed anti-theft sensors discarded throughout the entire store.”
After watching the surveillance footage, the staff realized they had been hit by the crew.
Police provided a description of the suspects:
• Suspect 1 was described as a woman with shoulder-length black hair and tattoos on her chest and right upper arm. She was last seen wearing a light-purple tank top and dark leggings.
• Suspect 2 was described as a woman with long green hair (possibly a wig) and wearing a light-purple tank top along with leggings and rainbow slides.
• Suspect 3 was described as having braided black hair and wearing a white “Baja California” T-shirt and gray shorts.
• Suspect 4 was described as having braided black hair and wearing a white “FILA” T-shirt along with blue shorts.
• Suspect 5 was described as having a close-trimmed beard with black dreads pulled into a knot, wearing a red “CK” T-shirt and khaki shorts.
• Suspect 6 was described as having short hair.
