The crime victims were found working at the Aspen Grove Mall, Littleton. It may seem like a crime of opportunity but it was captured on video and it seems that they knew exactly what they were doing.

Tatum Mainwaring (19 and Chloe Ross (19) are cousins and coworkers. However, now they can add victims to the list of stolen property.

“I’m coming to terms with the fact that it’s gone,” Ross said, “but it’s still upsetting.”

The crime was caught on camera at M.Mercantile on Saturday afternoon just before 3 p.m.

The video shows a man in red t-shirt entering the store. He then lured the 19 year-old employee to his back, asking for a yellow sundress he saw in the store the day prior.

“I was trying to bring him up to the front because our only sundresses are in the front and then he kept stalling me to stay back there,”Mainwaring said. “It was weird. Something was off, the sundresses were in the front of the store and he took me to the back where the pajamas are.”

The sundress inquiry was only to distract Mainwaring as the man’s partner in crime, wearing a blue dress, goes to the counter behind the register and swipes not one, but two purses and takes off.

“I turned around to look at my purse and my purse was gone and so was her’s (Ross’s) and then I was freaking out running in and out of the store,”Mainwaring.

Mainwaring’s mother owns the store and she told FOX31 that she received a ping on her iPhone that her credit card had suspicious activity, which was an attempted $500 purchase at a 7-11 behind their store. Her mother confirmed that her card had been deactivated since the crime and pinged at least twice more locations.

“I live out of that purse,” Ross explained. “Everything was in there.”

Ross lost her Louis Vuitton purse, wallet, ID and passport, jewelry, copies her birth certificate, social insurance cards, and other valuables. Mainwaring lost her purse and debit and credit cards, as well as jewelry, and her first vehicle. She claimed that thieves stole her 2014 Jeep Cherokee from her purse.

The crime keeps the young girls on edge even days later.

“It was scary watching him bring her to the back,” Ross explained.

“I’m a little nervous just because they obviously know our store. You don’t know if they’ll ever come back here or anything,”Mainwaring said.  

The young women aren’t too optimistic that they’ll get their belongings back, but both agree they are more aware of their surroundings and hope the man and woman are caught. They estimate that the vehicle will cost at least $5,000 to replace the lost valuables.

The reported crime is being investigated by the Littleton Police. They remind everyone that thefts are on the rise. They advise residents to keep valuables hidden from plain view, to lock all doors, not leave keys in vehicles, and never approach suspects.
