Police are searching for two women accused of hiding in a Macy’s department store at the Square One Mall in Saugus until closing time and then leaving with several articles of stolen merchandise.
Assistant Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti of the Saugus Police Department said the women remained in the building into the night and then “left through an exterior exit.”
The two women roamed through the store before leaving with stolen goods, he said.
Macy’s was completing an itemized list of what was taken, Giorgetti said.
Police got the initial report from Macy’s Saturday at about 3:45 a.m., though alarms in the store went off around 11 p.m. Friday, police said.
No other details were immediately available.
