Police are searching for two women accused of hiding in a Macy’s department store at the Square One Mall in Saugus until closing time and then leaving with several articles of stolen merchandise.
Saugus Assistant Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti said the women remained in the building into the night and “left through an exterior exit.”
The two women roamed the interior of the store before leaving with stolen goods, he said. Macy’s is in the process of completing an itemized list of what was taken, according to Giorgetti.
Police got the initial report from Macy’s on Saturday at about 3:45 a.m., though alarms in the store reportedly went off around 11 p.m. on Friday, police said.
No further details were immediately available.
