Organized theft at Posh Lingerie
Suspected organized theft ring at Posh Lingerie in Bridgeport Village on Nov. 30, police say
On Sunday, Nov. 30, Posh Lingerie in Bridgeport Village was the victim of what Tualatin Police says appears to be an organized theft ring.
Around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 30, three women and two men entered the store. One clerk was working and police say one of the individuals worked to distract the employee while the others stole thousands of dollars of merchandise.
Police estimate that more than $2,400 worth of merchandise was stolen, but Posh executives say the thieves may have stolen as much as $3,000.
Tualatin Police were notified of the theft on Monday Dec. 1. No suspect information is yet available, but Posh Lingerie has posted surveillance photos of the suspects on its Facebook page.
The company has also released two surveillance videos showing the suspects.
Posh officials said that the videos will help identify the suspects, and will help other local businesses understand how the thieves work.
"Because of the amount of loss to Posh, we are exposing them here in hopes we can bring them to justice," the company wrote. "We also believe they have hit the rest of Bridgport Village mall, and beyond in the Portland area. PLEASE help us catch them!"
The investigation is in its initial stages. Anyone with information is asked to call the Tualatin Police Department at 503-691-4800.
