Police seek help identifying suspects in beauty supply store theft

KOKOMO, Ind. (WISH) — Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying four suspects allegedly behind a theft at a Kokomo Ulta Beauty Supply store.

Around 6:15 p.m. Monday, officers with the Kokomo Police Department were sent to an Ulta Beauty Supply on a report of a theft.

When investigators arrived, employees spoke with officers and said the store had had several thefts in the last several months. Employees described the suspects as four women between the ages of 24 to 32 years old.

Officers say employees informed them that the women entered the store and began shopping. They went to the back of the store, set their shopping baskets down, and then distracted employees by claiming they lost a cellphone.

While the employees were distracted, one of the women left the store with the merchandise without paying. Then, the other women would leave, exiting the store with more stolen items. Employees told investigators the women left in a red Jeep Cherokee.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Devon Craig at 765-456-7600, ext. 8446, or the Kokomo Police Department Hotline at 765-456-7017.
