WFPD Investigates Theft Involving Two Women Carrying Children

Posted: Updated:
Tuesday afternoon, around lunch, Serenity Salon had a visit from some unwanted guests. 

Jordan Wright, the boutique owner said two women carrying babies stole more than $1500 worth of merchandise from its store. 

"Two women entered the store and asked for a little help and they looked around for a little bit and before you know it. I couldn't find them anymore,” said Wright. 

The two women spotted on surveillance video were in the business for around 20 minutes before running out its front door with an arm full of clothes and shoes. 

"They both had babies and they were both walking around the shopping like your every other day customers," said Wright.

Wight said the incident didn't just affect the owners, but employees as well.

"So disappointed that someone can walk into your home. This is like a home to us, all of us are family here. They didn't just steal from the owners or the boutique, they stole from all of us," said Wright. 

The women behind the crime were so brave that they stole while an off-duty police officer was present. His vehicle was parked in the front of the business during the incident. 

"He was obviously in the back getting his hair cut. So you think that would scare someone away to see a cop car out," said Tammy Carlton, Co-owner of Serenity Salon. 

She said she was at lunch when the theft occurred. Carlton said it's not the type of news you want to hear as a business owner and as a woman she was truly disappointed that women with babies would commit such a heinous crime. 

"Pretty brave to be stealing with small children. I don't know if they're their children or their babysitting someone's children," said Carlton. 

Carlton said, right now there just hoping police find the criminals behind the crime. 

The Wichita Falls Police Department said this incident is still under investigation and no arrest has been made at this time.
