FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - A Fort Pierce supermarket is crying foul after a bizarre shoplifting incident.
Police are looking for two women whom, they say, raided the shelves of the Winn Dixie supermarket on U.S. Highway 1. Now, they're asking for your help to catch up with the bandits who made off with a rather odd load of loot.
The two women, approximately 35 to 45 years old, one dressed in a hot pink top, the other in a brown T-shirt, committed a bold crime, right in the middle of Winn Dixie's aisle 11.
Fort Pierce police say they unloaded 75 sticks of Gilette men's and Secret women's deodorant into their purses. "They just blatantly walk into this aisle and just empty a row of deodorant," explained Fort Pierce Police Detective David Cuti. "I doubt 75 bars of deodorant were for personal use."
The store's surveillance video shows the women filling their purses with the items. The women stop when a clerk walks down the aisle; then, they head down another aisle before, police say, they came back for more. "It's a little unusual that they were taking deodorant," said Cuti. "Sometimes, they take higher priced items."
Cuti said the crime is not that uncommon, and that often a few dishonest "mom and pop" stores are behind it. "People would go out to some of these stores and take out some of these shelves and then go back to some of the smaller home-grown stores, the "mom and pop" stores, and sell them to them," he said. "And they can make a 100 percent profit off of that. In recent cases, we have had the owner of the store actually solicited these people to get this merchandise."
The deodorant retails for about $5 each. That's about $375 worth of deodorant. It may seem like a relatively small crime, but, police say, ultimately, everyone else pays for it. "It makes everybody's prices go up," said Cuti. "It's tough times right now. We don't need to make it any tougher."
If you have any information about what happened, call Fort Pierce Police at (772) 461-3820 or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273-TIPS (8477).
