A high end Buckhead Men’s clothing store was hit by a brazen booster who stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise by simply walking out of the store with the items.
Moda 404 owner Lee Brockwell told the Atlanta Journal she spent more than an hour chatting with the outgoing customer who seemed to want to spend a lot of money on clothes and shoes. But when she turned her back for a minute, the man brazenly walked behind the counter, picked up 3 bags of merchandise and strolled out of the store in broad daylight.
Brockwell said the man’s $4,300 take included a couple pairs of pants, jeans, shirts, a pair of sunglasses and several pairs of shoes worth $200 to $600 each.
Another customer spotted a grey Audi parked outside the store with the motor running. But the customer wasn’t sure if that was the getaway vehicle.
If you recognize the man, call the Crime Stoppers Atlanta Tipline at (404) 577-8477. Watch the surveillance video after the break.
