Police: Five took Nike clothing from Macy's

A group of five suspects reportedly grabbed $1,100 worth of Nike clothing from Macy’s in the Burbank Town Center on Monday and fled, police said.

Around 3:15 p.m., a loss-prevention employee noticed the group — four men and a woman — on surveillance cameras when a couple of them reportedly moved items from one rack to another, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

By the time the employee made it to the store’s floor, the group had left the area. But then he spotted the suspects heading down the escalator into the mall.

They had reportedly made off with 20 pairs of Nike shorts and 20 Nike shirts, Ryburn said.

The four men were described as black, between 20 and 25 years old, between 160 to 170 pounds, and ranging from 5 feet 9 to 5 feet 11, Ryburn said. Two were reportedly wearing baseball caps. The woman was described as black, 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 7, and 160 pounds.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Burbank police at (818) 238-3210.
