Police in Washington, D.C., are looking for two women who stole $10,000 worth of Gucci bags from a store in the district’s Chinatown last month.
Caught in the act: Security footage shows the women walking around the store on the 1000 block of I Street NW at about 2:30 p.m. on April 17, reported NBC Washington.
  • In the video, one of the women can be seen placing the stolen items into her own H&M paper bag. 
  • According to police, she used a “cutting instrument to remove the listed property from a locked cable” while the other woman acted as a lookout.
  • The pair then left the store with five Gucci bags and drove away in a white Toyota Camry.
