One person distracted an employee while the other grabbed merchandise.
Two people worked together to shoplift thousands of dollars of merchandise Friday from a Christian Dior boutique in Gold Coast.
The male and female duo entered the store about 3:20 p.m. in the 900 block of North Rush Street, Chicago police said. The female distracted an employee while the male grabbed merchandise.
After grabbing about $5,000 worth of property, they left the shop without paying, according to a source.
Police have not offered a description of the shoplifters. Area Central detectives are investigating.
