Peabody Police on the hunt for serial shoplifter
PEABODY, Mass. (WHDH) -- Peabody Police are on the hunt for a woman who they say has been on a shoplifting spree across Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Police also say she has gotten away with more than $100,000 in the past four to six months.
She most recently struck at the Northshore Mall in Peabody within the past two weeks.
Surveillance pictures show that the woman appeared to be putting merchandise into her bag as she made her way around the store.
Investigators believe she has also hit two malls in New Hampshire, including the mall at Rockingham Park in Salem.
Police don’t have much to go on other than the surveillance pictures, in which the suspect appears to be wearing a grey sweatshirt and white tennis shoes.
They won’t discuss her method but say it's simple and quick.
Please reach out to police if you recognize or have any information on this woman.
