Authorities are on the hunt for a woman who stole hundreds of dollars in makeup from a metro store.

Oklahoma City police report that on July 11 a pregnant woman in her mid to late 20s entered Nordstrom Rack, 1741 Belle Isle, and began shopping in the makeup aisle.

A loss prevention officer told police he observed the woman begin putting makeup into her purse. At one point, the woman steps behind a clothes rack to use pliers she brought to the store to pull the sensor off of a pair of shoes.

An alarm was triggered when the woman cut the sensor and she then tried to leave the store. While outside, she was approached by the loss prevention officer. The officer didn't want to struggle with the woman, because she was pregnant, and she was able to flee the store. Before fleeing, the woman dropped her purse, the pliers and the stolen items.

The woman then jumped in a gray Honda Pilot that was waiting for her and fled the scene.

Just 15 minutes after police posted the woman's photo to social media she was identified. Anyone with information on the woman is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
