Most men may not realize how expensive women’s makeup can be, but some thieves understand just how valuable the stuff is, so they made off with millions worth of the pricey goods relied upon by women to make themselves look good.
Now authorities want your assistance to track down the burglars.
Police Friday were seeking the public’s help in providing information that would lead them to the thieves who took about $4.5 million worth of makeup from an Anastasia Beverly Hills warehouse in Chatsworth.
The burglars made off with more than 100,000 of the high-end makeup brand’s Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palettes some time between Jan. 28 and Jan. 30, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
The suspects cut through the roof of the warehouse on Nordhoff Street near Topanga Canyon Boulevard to gain access to the Anastasia products.
Anyone with information about the theft was asked to contact Detective Marc Zavala at (818) 832-7510 or Detective Jeannette Santos at (818) 832-7511. Both work in the LAPD’s Commercial Crimes Division Cargo Hijack Unit.
