Police in Pembroke Pines are trying to identify two women who investigators say are seen on a store’s security surveillance system stealing nearly $400 worth of merchandise from a clothing store.
The showy part? On the surveillance video, one of the two women is seen walking down a shiny checkerboard-colored aisle — racks of colorful clothing to her left and to her right — as she starts wiggling her hips, bending down and thrusting out her prominent rear end in a booty dance twerking motion.
It’s not known if this was a planned distraction or sudden impulse that played out April 26 during a shoplifting spree at the MadRag women’s clothing store at 626 N. University Dr.
Pembroke Pines police Thursday released surveillance images and video of the two women who investigators say left the store with more than $377 worth of items without paying for them.
The dancing shoplifter had short black hair and multiple tattoos, according to police. Her accomplice was a woman with long black hair.
Investigators urge anyone with information about their identities or this crime to contact the Pembroke Pines Police Department at 954-436-2317 or call Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-8477.
