PLEASANT PRAIRIE -- The Pleasant Prairie Police Department is working to identify 10 male suspects after they were caught on camera stealing more than $30,000 worth of merchandise from The North Face store at the Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets.
FOX6 News spoke with Police Chief David Smetana about the incident -- which happened Monday evening, July 1. Smetana indicated 10 males walked into the store, nine of them grabbed merchandise, and the suspects were in and out of the store within 30 seconds.
"This was an organized group. They had planned this out, they had traveled to this outlet knowing which stores they were going to hit," Smetana said. "This isn’t a group of 10 people walking by a store and coming up with an idea to hit it."
Investigators are now examining surveillance video from inside and outside of the store -- hoping to get better identification on the suspects.
