Items valued between $300 and $400 were reported stolen Friday afternoon from Urban Outfitters at 530 E. Kirkwood Ave., according to Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Robert Skelton.

The suspects were described by Skelton as two females in their 20s, who are both approximately 5 foot, 5 inches tall with short hair.

Skelton said the two women entered the store carrying bags as they shopped around, but store employees noticed the bags becoming more full as the women shopped.

The two women also said no when asked if they wanted to use the changing room, according to Skelton. 

When they exited the store, the security alarm went off. One of the women then took off a tube top she had been wearing and threw it back inside the store, claiming she forgot she was wearing it, Skelton said.

Store employees asked to check the women's bags, but they wouldn't return to the store once they went outside, Skelton said. 

The employees also were not sure which items were taken.
