Peachtree City police are asking the public to watch out for a group of four people involved in stealing $3,000 of robes and gowns from the Chico's Soma store at The Avenue in Peachtree City.

The incident occurred today around 4 p.m., police said.

One of the suspects spotted in the store was described as a black female, heavyset about 5'5", 250 pounds in her late 30s or early 40s with short black hair wearing long sleeved sweats, police said.

The other suspect from inside the store was described as 5'5", 160 pound in her mid 40s, being "rough looking" and wearing a black midriff shirt showing her belly along with a red belt and blue jeans, police said. She drove a candy apple red older model sedan that was possibly a Chevy Monte Carlo, police said.

Two other suspects seen in the parking lot with the others included a young black female driving a four-door light color car perhaps a mid-90s Honda Accord with a male passenger described as a mixed race 5'5" tall and 140 pounds with a mustache, wearing a hat.

If any of these suspects are spotted, citizens are urged to call the police department immediately at 770-487-8866 or at 770-461-4357.

Maybe the 250 pounder should skip turkey day.

Oh yes, here we go again being described as "black". Should we really be shocked with a crime like this. It is getting brutal with this trash do this in PTC. Have we found "THUG" yet?

The other crime case that happened in PTC has the main suspect as a chunky white female. Ummm, excuse me "heavyset".

Less eating and stealing and more workouts ladies.

That description certainly doesn't match your average Avenues Shopper. Wouldn't you think that particular "element" would have attracted the attention of the store staff and security?

You know, the ones that work there in "loss prevention"

They walk around about once an hour. You can spot them.

Seems to be the theme for this holiday shopping season.

Heavyset?? This describes most Americans.....This should be easy to spot.

No sky, heavyset 30-40 years ago meant medium to short and about 190.

Now it means medium to to short and over 300.

we will see more of this kind of crime. This is what happens when we became a "destination" for shopping. Just keep adding more retail and the criminals will come for their five finger discount.
