A group of women has been walking into a high-end athletic clothing store chain across Northern California and stuffing merchandise into bags in broad daylight and leaving. NBC Bay Area reported.
Three women, believed to be from the Bay Area, were caught on camera at a Lululemon store in Fresno on Sunday afternoon stealing $17,000 worth of workout clothing, Fresno police said.
The Fresno Police Department said more than a dozen other Lululemon locations across the Bay Area were raided in July, a few of them more than once.
Police made arrests for the theft on July 12 at Lululemon’s Broadway Plaza location in Walnut Creek, but other stores continued to be targeted.
Approximately $135,000 worth of merchandise has been stolen across the stores, detectives said.
Lululemon sells yoga clothes and other athletic apparel. It’s well-known for its leggings, which are priced at more than $90 each.
