Video: Greedy Thieves Wipe Shelves Clean of Perfume

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has released a surveillance video showing two women stealing about $3,000 worth of merchandise from Sephora at the Westfield Brandon shopping mall.


How much was enough for the thieves at work at the Sephora cosmetics store in the Westfield Brandon shopping mall? Apparently, only a few steals wouldn't do, as a surveillance video released from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office shows the two women hauling away enough perfume to top about $3,000.

The theft reportedly occurred Nov. 23 at about 7:40 p.m., when two women entered Sephora carrying large bags and "worked together to select and conceal the items in their personal bags."

The thieves are described as follows:

  • Black female, age 22-29, about 5-foot-3, 170 pounds, with large build, several tattoos, wearing all black clothing and sporting a large red or auburn wig or hair weave.
  • Black female, age 22-29, about 5-foot, 130 pounds, with slender build, black shoulder-length hair, wearing an aqua shirt, black pants, and a white shirt tied around her waist.
