Southbury Police Investigate Organized Theft at Local Store
The Southbury Police Department just took to their Facebook page to inform the public about an organized theft that occurred at a local retail store in Southbury Plaza over the weekend.
They have released a couple of photos of the suspects in the hope that you might recognize them. Southbury Police received a complaint on Saturday, February 27 at 4:15PM regarding a larceny that had just occurred at the Ulta Beauty location in the Southbury Plaza at 100 Main Street North.
According to the Southbury Police, two black males, one wearing a red hoodie and jeans and another wearing a black hoodie and jeans, entered the store and proceeded to the men's fragrance section. Both of the men started loading expensive colognes and merchandise into shopping bags and then they allegedly took off without paying. The two men were seen fleeing into a white SUV which was being driven by another person.
I can personally tell you that this is a very common problem that retail employees face almost daily. Mrs. Large is employed by Ulta and I can't count how many times over the past few years that this exact scenario has happened in Ultas across Connecticut. It's not just happening at Ulta, any retail store with products that are out in reach of the public that are valued at more than $50-$100 are constantly being ripped off.
If you recognize either of the two individuals, you are being asked to contact Officer Pearce of the Southbury Police Department at 203-264-5912.
