Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a group of suspects they say stole items from the Victoria's Secret at the Mall of Georgia in Buford.

Six shoplifters slipped roughly $2,700 of Victoria’s Secret merchandise into their shopping bags after removing the security tags, police said.

Gwinnett County Police are looking for help finding the suspects, who stole the products May 29 at the Mall of Georgia in Buford.

Gwinnett County Police Cpl. William Rundles said the suspects interacted with each other for 45 minutes while in the store carrying bags from other stores.

“While they appeared to be shopping, they were removing security tags and concealing items in their bags.  Each suspect eventually purchased an item to give the appearance of legitimate shopping and they each paid with cash,” Rundles wrote in an email.

An employee found the tags on the floor after the suspects left the store.

The stolen merchandise was worth roughly $2,700.

Five of the suspects were described as being black women, with the sixth being a black man, police said.

Suspect 1 is described as a black female, with shoulder length black hair, and tattoos on her chest and right upper arm.  She was last seen wearing a light purple tank top and dark leggings.

Suspect 2 is described as a black female, long green hair (possibly a wig), wearing a light purple tank top and leggings, and rainbow slides.

Suspect 3 is described as a black female, with braided black hair, wearing a white Baja California T-shirt, and gray shorts.

Suspect 4 is described as a black female, with braided black hair, wearing a white Fila t-shirt, and blue shorts.

Suspect 5 is described as a black male, with a close trimmed beard and black dreads pulled into a knot, wearing a red CK T-shirt, and khaki shorts.

Suspect 6 is described as an older black female with short hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call police detectives at 770-513-5300 or use the anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line at 404-577-8477.
