At around 1:30pm on Thursday 4 March 2021 two women were seen to be concealing items at a retail store on Council Avenue in Rockingham.
A staff member noticed the women were acting suspiciously and observed one of the women concealing cosmetics in her pram while the other appeared to keep watch.
The women then walked out of the store making no attempt to pay for the items.
The staff member approached the women outside of the store and requested that they return the items. The women became verbally abusive and denied stealing items. Security was called and the women handed back some of the goods but retained others.
The women left the shopping centre on foot, heading down Council Avenue towards Read Street.
Police have released a CCTV image of two women who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The first woman is described as: light skinned, slim build, approximately 155cm tall, with blonde hair in a ponytail. She wore a black jumper, black tights and was pushing a brown pram.
The second woman is described as: light skinned, slim build, approximately 165cm tall, with long dark brown hair. She wore a black shirt and black trackpants.
