Seriously though — detectives think they’re organized retail thieves who sell the stolen stuff.
They entered the store separately. One a big Husky fan wearing a ‘U-Dub’ sweatshirt and hat.
The second suspect’s face is covered. She wore all black, but maybe it’s her reddish purse she carried that someone will recognize.
Detectives say they’re so good at stealing it’s tough to even see them do it, but they’re escape wasn’t so smooth — setting off the sensor alarms at the front doors — then darting to a car and driving away.
"They stole about $800 worth of foot care items, expensive items like files and that kind of thing,” says Edmonds Police Det. Andrew Mehl. "Organized Retail Theft, you know, some may think it's just shoplift, but these are actually professional shoplifters. They do this for a living. They go out and they sell their product on the Internet, on the Black Market for pennies on the dollar. So, what that does is that raises prices for everybody."
Take a good look at the suspects again, especially the woman who's face is clear as day. Her Husky sweatshirt is gray with ‘U-Dub’ in gold. Her Husky ski hat is purple with the ‘W’ logo in gold. She even wore purple boots.
