Several Prada items were among the items stolen.




A group of six people stole more than $18,500 in merchandise from a LensCrafters location in New York City.

Thirteen Prada piece were among the 37 pairs of sunglasses and frames taken, West Side Rag reports, describing the incident as a “grab-n-go” theft.

The crime took place at LensCrafters Optique, 2050 Broadway, on Oct. 21. There was “no use of force threatened” and there were no reported injuries, according to the New York Police Department.

The NYPD 20th Precinct stated that five male suspects and one female suspect are being sought.

A worker at the store told West Side Rag that the business has experienced thefts before, “but never in such a large group like that.”

In another LensCrafters theft incident, 50 pairs of eyewear worth a total of $12,000 were taken from a store in Evansville, IN, last week, WEHT-TV reports.
