'Grab-and-run' thieves hit Macy's

May 18, 2009

Two men took about 30 designer T-shirts from Macy's at Mayfair Mall in what Wauwatosa police are calling a "grab-and-run" on Saturday evening.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

Sales staff heard the security sensor go off, then saw a man running out the door with his arms full of merchandise toward another man who stood holding open the door of a car parked right outside the store entrance. They threw the merchandise in the backseat, jumped in the vehicle and sped off.

Store management estimate the value of the clothing at $1,500 to $3,000.
