The Sugar Land Police Department is searching for a trio of suspected thieves who recently teamed up to steal $9,000 worth of expensive eye glass frames from a Sugar Land store.

According to police officials, employees from a high-end eye glasses store noticed three suspects in the store acting suspiciously around 5 p.m. on Aug. 3. Soon after, more than 60 pairs of Versace, Tiffany & Co. and Bvlgari brand eye glasses valued at roughly $9,000 were discovered missing.

Police detectives were quickly sent to the Lenscrafter store located at 16535 Southwest Freeway to investigate. Security camera videos provided by store officials show a man and two women who are believed to be responsible for the theft.

In the security camera video, a Hispanic woman in her 20s to early 30s can be seen putting the glasses in her bag. The woman is described as having a medium build and wearing a gray shirt.

The second suspect is seen in the video standing between the woman and an employee during thealleged theft. The woman’s accomplice is described as a heavy-set Hispanic woman in her late 20s to early 30s wearing a sheer tan blouse. Detectives suspect a tall Hispanic man seen on video pulling drawers was working to help with two women. Police describe the man as in his 30s and wearing a black shirt.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477).
