Police Arrest Would-Be Smash and Grab Thieves [Video]
Police in Pennsylvania thwarted would-be smash-and-grab robbers from shoplifting from a cosmetics store.
The West Whiteland Police Department said officers had staked out an Ulta store in Exton after receiving a tip that a vehicle connected to robberies at other Ulta stores was headed to that location.
“Two males entered the store this morning and attempted to steal nearly $10,000 in fragrance,” the West Whiteland Township Police Department said. “Luckily, we had some information they were coming. The two subjects were arrested in the store and the merchandise was recovered. Good work by the Ulta employees.
“If you were shopping in the store, and witnessed what it looks like when two subjects actively resist arrest, we apologize for the mess,” the department added. “Thanks to our officers, you were never in harm’s way.”
