The incident at Ulta comes on the heels of a coordinated theft at a Macy’s in the same township in Chester County. This time, it was a team of men making off with thousands in cologne and perfume.
The cologne caper occurred at the Exton Square Mall in West Whiteland Township, which noted a recent uptick in these grab-and-run thefts. The group got away with an estimated $2,000 worth of high-end scents.
As Macy’s employees expressed shock at the brazenness of the group as the filled large gym bags with bottles of perfume, only 73-year-old Mark Spool took action. He was able to record the incident using his cellphone.
Still, no arrests have been made in either case as of yet.
