    Police in Natick, Massachusetts are sharing information about an unusual case of shoplifting.

    Cindy Wolf works at the Five Crows Gallery and Gift Shop in Natick. She says she was stunned by how blatantly these two suspects stole multiple items from a women’s clothing store in Natick just a few weeks ago.

    Natick police posted the video on their Facebook page in which you can see a person in a skirt and another in blue pants. The two take turns going back and forth, hiding behind the rack as they take items off the racks.

    Police say one of the suspects lifts the other's skirt and stuffs items into some sort of bag or girdle that is underneath the skirt. The woman puts her skirt down and the two suspects walk out of the store with workers not noticing a thing.

    "Definitely seems like a new technique, yeah, I just wouldn't expect someone to life up their skirt like that, or kilt where I'm from," says Shopper Matthew Jackson. 

    This Natick store was not so lucky but it's a good reminder that any shop or store can fall victim to thieves.

    “It’s not right and they’ll continue stealing so you know somebody has to pay for that," Wolf says. "It’s just not right.”

    Natick police are still searching for the two suspects.

    If you recognize those suspects you are asked to contact Natick Police Department Detective Division at 508-647-9520, or you may report anonymously using their online reporting system
