Two people intercepted 22 Tom Brady football jerseys from a Natick store, police said, and officers are hoping the public can help them tackle the case.
On Wednesday, the department posted to its Facebook page a video of the two suspects who committed the theft on Nov. 20.
“These two ‘Superfans’ entered a local shop and began browsing. As one kept the available clerk busy, the other scooped up” the jerseys, according to police.
The second suspect then slipped out of the store using the nearest exit with the pile of jerseys, which were collectively valued at $2,200.
Police would not say which store the jerseys were taken from, but said the footage of the two men was provided by security officials at the Natick Mall.
Lt. Cara Rossi-Cafarelli said the suspects will likely try to turn a profit on the sports memorabilia for the holidays.
“They will be very easily sold. Who doesn’t love Tom Brady? Especially here,” she said.
The suspect who took the jerseys is described as a white male, between 25 and 35 years old. Police said he was wearing a Patriots hoodie, with a Bruins zip-up jacket over it.
The suspect who police say aided the theft is described as a white male who was wearing a yellow hooded sweatshirt and a black jacket.
Officers are asking anyone who can help identify the two people who appear in the video to contact the department’s detective division. Reports and tips can also be filed anonymously on the Natick police website, Rossi-Cafarelli said.
